"Clean, accurate, powerful sound for the best price around."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
These monitors have a bright, clear sound with good bass. I've used them outdoors as welll as in several indoor environments, and they sound great, especially with the ability to adjust their frequency response to match the acoustic environment, using controls on the back panel. Adding the matching B2082A subwoofer, which is an amazing speaker itself, provides powerful bass and creates sound than cannot be beat for twice the price.
Controls on the back panel provide the ability to set the sensitivity, to tailor the sound to the acoustic environment, and the option to turn off the amp when there is no signal. There are unbalanced quarter-inch as well as balanced XLR input jacks.
Ease of Use:
These speakers can be used with standard mixers or devices designed to feed balanced or unbalanced line-level signals. The manual is typival of Behringer -- clear and well-written, with good diagrams.
I have used these speakers for seven years without any problems. Though they are designed for control room environments, I use them as portable monitors and PA speakers, using some custom vinyl cases to protect them from bumps and scrapes, and special plates to mount them on standard speaker stands. I built some crude angle brackets so I can use them as floor monitors.
I have not had to contact tech suppot, but I have uses the Behringer web site for technical information. The support is professional.
Price is a primary consideration for me. I have several pieces of Behringer gear, which I bought because the value of their products is difficult to beat. The best equipment for the price, bar none.
The Wow Factor:
The appearance is clean and professional. The speakers are designed for control room use and have no grill covers that might interfere with the sound. I use them with some simple grill cloth covers held on with velcro, to protect them when I move them from place to place.
I am a fan of Behringer. I liked the Truth monitors when I compared their specs and price. I fell in love with them after I listened to them. Their sound is clean, rich and powerful.
