Overview

Behringer makes TRUTH B2031A Reference Monitors to speak nothing but the TRUTH. When it comes to your studio recordings, you want honesty. In fact, considering how important your art is, you should demand it! Oh, they still sound great hooked up to your stereo or your video surround system, but they were really built with the studio in mind—where every note you play or sing is "under the microscope."

Built on the Behringer Legacy
Behringer TRUTH B2031A audio monitors have been so wildly successful that they've sold thousands upon thousands of them to some of the most critical ears on the planet. Due to their high-resolution performance, B2031A active 2-way reference studio monitors are perfect for nearfield monitoring applications: from small mixing environments to multi-channel surround setups.

Ultra-Linear Frequency Response
The TRUTH B2031A is a serious contender capable of achieving output levels in excess of 116 dB SPL. Powered by separate 80- and 25-Watt built-in amplifiers with an active crossover, these monitors provide ultra-linear frequency response from 50 Hz to 21 kHz.

Behringer Calls it a Speaker Graduation Diploma
After final assembly, each B2031A spends up to a half hour with a Calibration Engineer being meticulously tweaked to ensure ultra-linear frequency response.

When you buy a TRUTH B2031A monitor, you're truly getting a hand-calibrated unit. Behringer ship a calibration certificate with each B2031A that shows the actual frequency response of your monitor, as tested at the time of manufacture.
After all these rigorous tests, only then is the speaker granted its own Graduation Diploma.

Rock-Solid Bass
Bookshelf-style home stereo speakers can really fool you when it comes to bass output, mainly because they are not designed for critical listening applications. That's why recording engineers and producers listen to projects through studio reference monitors or studio-grade headphones. The B2031A's long-throw 8.75" polypropylene-diaphragm woofer delivers smooth, deep bass all the way down to 50 Hz. Bass content that isn't exaggerated, as it can be in home speaker systems. Rock-solid bass that is an honest representation of the recorded sound, full of subtle nuance; the sound of fingers on the strings, or the rush of air through the long pipes of a cathedral organ, etc.

Non-Fatiguing, Wide "Sweet Spot"
B2031A's HF (High Frequency) content comes courtesy of an ultra high-resolution 1.0" ferrofluid-cooled tweeter mounted on Behringer's proprietary wave-guide. While some of Behringer's competitor's studio monitors have a highly focused "sweet spot" (the optimal listening position for a pair of loudspeakers), Behringer's wave-guide is designed to create a much more generous, broader listening zone. That means you won't wear a hole in the carpet in that one spot where everything sounds great. You are free to move around inside the stereo image to find the ideal spot in the mix for subtle instrument or effects placement opportunities.

You also won't suffer the ravages of "monitor fatigue-syndrome," an ailment that comes from listening to harsh high-mids and treble content for hours on end, even during those all-night mix-down sessions that can really test your nerves.

Expect the Best
Behringer packs 105-Watts of bi-amped technology (including a time- and phase-optimized active crossover) into every B2031A, ensuring that you have the enormous power reserves you'll need to drive them really hard. The unique BEHRINGER wave-guide and the extremely low-distortion crossover network produce an absolutely linear frequency response with excellent sound dispersion and stereo imaging.

Designed to Work in Your Environment
The ideal environment for listening is a room that is “flat,” neither too reflective (echoes) nor too absorptive (where the sound is muffled). But since all rooms are not the same acoustically, all TRUTH monitors come equipped to function in a wide variety of situations. Switches are provided to adapt the monitor’s low- and high-frequency characteristics for optimal performance specific to your listening environment.

Suited for All Placements
Placement is also critical. Ideally, all loudspeakers should be placed away from walls to ensure proper bass response. But fear not, B2031A monitors feature Room Compensation switches so you can place them against walls, or even in corners. Walls tend to enhance low-frequency content, and corners exaggerate bass even more, but your TRUTH monitor can be custom-tailored to provide honest bass response for your situation, with the simple flick of a switch or two.

Please Standby
Since placement of studio monitors can significantly affect their performance, often they are placed in a manner that makes it inconvenient to get to the power switch on the rear panel. Not to worry, the B2031A provides a simple solution to breaking out the stepladder or climbing onto your desk. The B2031A features an AUTO power switch that, when activated, powers up the system as soon as it detects an input signal. If no signal is detected, the system automatically switches into standby mode after five minutes of silence.

XLR and 1/4" Inputs
The B2031A is equipped with servo-balanced inputs on XLR and ¼" TRS connectors to handle a variety of audio sources. Thanks to its compact size and magnetic shielding, the TRUTH B2031A can be placed near video monitors, computer displays or digital audio workstations

Not bad for the price!

By Brooklyn in Chicago

from Chicago

I first encountered these monitors in college at a friends off campus digs. Both of us being broke music majors, these came in very handy. He was using his pair to drive his Technic 1200's. I was actually blown away by the sound clarity they offered. When I got my pair (which I still use till this day) they were setup for home recording. I have used Genelecs, Roland and of course Mackie over the years and I realize that these aren't in the same class as the high end stuff, but if you're in need of some monitors and can't afford the others, this is a great investment . I'm saying that you can mix down a commercial album with these, but these should suffice until you start making some dough off of your craft.

Best Deal for the Money

By Burt

from Canoga Park, CA

I've heard Dynaudio, Mackie's, JBL's, and the KRK's and they all sound great but they weren't in my budget to build my home studio so I had to do the next best thing, find a monitor that sounds great but without the high cost of the other high end studio monitors, Truth B2031A's was my answer. you can't go wrong here, they have an awesome warranty (which helps), and they sound awesome. I know people give Behringer a hard time about the quality of their product but i have and so have many others that come by my studio been impressed by how these monitor's perform. The name speaks for itself "Truth"

Much more than I expected for the $$

By Rob

from San Francisco, CA

I'm slowly building my home studio but don't have the big $$ to work with, so I've been researching the products where I can get the best bang for the buck. The B2031A's are definitely one of those finds. I had been using these small edirol monitors which I thought were pretty decent for the size and price, but the B2031A's really opened my ears to much more that I hadn't heard in the mixes before. The room customizations on the back are great as well as the overall build. The mix's I've produced with these have been pretty accurate and to my liking so I guess they are doing it's job. I can't say I've compared them to the high end, super expensive monitors but if you're on a budget and want quality, here it is.
