    I have used these speakers for mixing in a local I did not know, and I pleasantly surprised t. They ring the Manire 1031 after ... we like it or not.

    - Production costs: these speakers are manufactured by the slaves of modern times, namely Chinese workers countries 60 euros per month, suddenly on good Western plump, it takes full advantage of globalization
    - Overheads: rduits max, a distributor for all of Europe, margins rduites store (that's only some stores do not want to sell, because the margin is very much infrieure that of other brands .... for example, Genelec via SCV is over 40% margin!)
    Now, if we forget the price factor, and that is put at half its ethics or that one is not, one must admit that these are good speakers, well-designed, imbalances, and allow for a lot of work.

    I say that is never the answer according to the frquence was rotten, but these speakers ntaient not very neutral, especially flattering. Jai prcis same as for the price it ntait not so bad (compares FURTHER).

    I find the comparison with NS10 and some dare Genelec:
    1) If there are NS10 in most studio that nest surely not listen a whole. If we can afford more denceintes pairs, so take a good pair ds the departure, so not Berhinger (which are not so rotten that has either, but really just for the monitoring !!) Moreover, it is precisely the flaws of linearity (bump in the top mdium) that make NS10 are very reprsentes in studios (they are suitable work spcifique and not to the overall mix): I do not see a studio choose a pair of Berhinger for these defects in the low (too prsentes and too blurry).
    2) Mrs. fight for Genelec which are also chosen for their bump in the medium: they allow a certain security in the mix, but hey, we love it or does not like (I naime not too much).
    3) In-del linearity of the big difference with the Berhinger also remains the precision (and the comparison would even dare)
    Warning, this is not the 1030 that lon found in studios (there Genelec Genelec and).

    I repeats the Berhinger Nont not a bad quality for money. But are really just for monitoring. (And yet I havent afford me a pair of Genelec, Focal, Adam, Far.).

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    If you want more precision and hear pretty mdium plustt so go see the ct of HS80 from Yamaha, you will be surprised at the precision of mdiums. (Even if they cost a 200euros has more worth it to wait unu little).

    For what purpose and in what context do you use this product? For how long?
    Use to mix and mastering, since more than 6 years.

    Have you tried other competing products before buying it?
    Yes, M-Audio (ref forgotten by now) that apparently sounded good but had a significant lack in the bottom - the compensation performed at the qual. rendered inaudible mix on other systems.

    The B2031 does not have this problem and allow to obtain true mix ... once you set them correctly.

    And no, the perfect sound does not come out as if by magic as soon as the branch, welcome to the real world, sorry ... Care Bears

    In my case, after several years of use, I have adopted the following settings:
    Low Frequency: 0 dB
    Room Compensation: 0 dB
    High Frequency - 4 dB
    Input trim to "-5" (just before "midi" which corresponds to 0dB if you prefer)
    Power Mode: On.La position "Auto fact that they automatically shut when not in use (a nod to a previous poster).
    Low and high Mute: Off

    The mix that came loaded low before these adjustments are balanced now.
    I still have yet to experience the Room Compensation, but hey, the best is the enemy of the good it seems ...

    What are the things you enjoy most and least?

    Less:
    Pregnant toasted once (full mix of a project course).
    The electrician who repaired was not impressed by the quality of the components used.
    When reassembling the electronic box on the cabinet, the threads were stripped, it took bricoler.A the opportunity, take a look time to time to check that everything is always securely stowed (that is, you are now warned).

    More:
    Since the time I listen to music (my own, that of radio, CD, DVD, etc ...), they are now my reference, my ears somehow.
    Change to "better" would mean having to "recalibrate" which takes some time and the goal is to make Zique ultimately.
    Plus, it is so well regulated that they are entirely satisfactory.

    Titus accuracy: purchased (misery) secondhand to a friend who had found him at the same thing-cash-express, so at least a third hand.

    Will I do it again this choice? Well, frankly ... yes.

    I do not have too many claims with respect to monitors. I am among those who think it enough to get used to listen to good mixes with the same pair of monitors are used to mix, to "learn" the right mix parameters, and it works pretty well.

    SOUNDS

    - The frequency curve is correct for me. Anyway who has a perfect pitch?
    - The sound is clear is accurate. Listening to the next room I can not tell if the artist sings live or recorded.
    - The stereo image is correct.
    - Dynamic I do not know.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - I use it for nine years.
    - I used other models before and I'm happy now.

    For technical specifications please refer to the information sheet Audiofanzine ;)

    What motivated my choice is the price (80 euros in hand) and the size of the boomers (much larger than many other speakers at the same price).

    SOUNDS

    These speakers sound hifi I think.
    I was fortunate to have the frequency response curves of the speakers when I bought it. The mine has a low enough in low and therefore a slight bump in the treble.
    So I think they lack bass but they are fairly neutral to leave it.

    The stereo image is good especially as it has a gain knob that allows each speaker knew then rebalance the stereo speaker if one is stronger than the other.

    They also have different filter rééqualiser depending on the room or you are.

    The dynamic is good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have one year from now. I am very happy.

    I tried the Alesis M1 MK2 Activ which is a lot more bass a little too much, I think my Behringer more balanced level of the spectrum.
    Value / unbeatable price.

    What I like most is the filter on each speaker that is complete and works well. We can even mutate severe and / or acute. The gain is very convenient for the stereo balance.

    What bothers me is the lack of bass.

    I think these are good speakers near to start, I Refer this choice without hesitation.

    5. Adjustable to a wide range of acoustic conditions and subwoofer operation
    6. Separately controlled limiter for low and high frequency overload protection
    7. Automatic standby mode (defeatable)
    8. Magnetic shielding allows placement near computer monitors
    9. Delivered as “matched pairs” with individual frequency diagrams
    10. Servo-balanced inputs with XLR and 1/4" TRS connectors
    11. High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life
    12. Conceived and designed by BEHRINGER Germany
    13. Ultra-linear frequency range from 60 Hz to 23 kHz
    14. High power handling capability (100 W / IEC268-5) produces full-range output with extremely low distortion
    15. Phase-optimized and high-precision crossover for absolute phase linearity

    18. Solid protective grille and exceptionally rugged construction for long life and durability
    19. Conceived and designed by BEHRINGER Germany



    SOUNDS

    Works as a nice stereo pair for my setup...I use it as near fields for home recording...They are accurate and sound terrific...Anyone who discounts these because of the name on them deserves to miss the boat...These are awesome for the price...

    They have some VERY useful room adjustments on the back for highs, mids, and lows...Super easy to dial them into your setup...And believe me, once properly adjusted - they simply rule...

    The entire spectrum is well balanced...The 5.5 throws out more bass than I expected...It is a great reference speaker- or pair depending on you...

    The sound is exactly what you put in...If you do bass-heavy music, you probably want to add a sub...But if you just want the rock thump of a kick drum- you are covered with the 2031A...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I like the fact that you can adjust them to your room...Very nice feature....The power is clean and clear....The speakers can handle a lot of sound and stay faithful to the truth, hence the name.... :)

    For the moolah, you won't find better...For twice as much you might...

    WOuld totally buy again if and when I open the B Room...

    Overall a terrific product...Great features, great sound...Great manual....

    They are a tad heavy but hey, they are active...

    And, since no one else has done this yet...

    YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!

    Their Neutrality reminiscent of good studio monitors.
    I use them for the Monitoring and frankly it's good for that price.
    Amplification is a mystery, given the power is 2x 240 Watts RMS, but Monitoring, power is not the main, however, have a good supply is useful in correcting low for example, so for "Pics "very high as needed. I have never pushed to the bottom, however, this reserve can make them versatile for use in another console output for sound to a room, but it is not their vocation.

    For over two years without blushing. I saw B 2031, 3030, 3031 Series Active and Passive Thruth, equip tapping Studios called Pro as well as beginners Home Studios. Yes of KRK, Peavey, Etc..

    Those are great speakers, solid, reliable listening for the right ears,
    we ask no more, their power reserves make them "versatile", Boomers almost 9 "cashing well and at this price, the choice is quickly made,
    we also have a flexible adaptation to the room acoustics, grafted XLR and 6.35,
    at least some may find the linear range of 50 to 21 Khz, just,
    but I doubt it :) To redeem your eyes closed, it's good Behringer.

I later took up electric & acoustic guitar & keyboards.I have quite the guitar & bass collection! My musical interests have always centered around the more progressive and powerful bands like the aforementioned Jimi,Yes,Deep Purple,ELP,Sabbath,Blue Oyster Cult,Rush and the like.

My musical interests have always centered around the more progressive and powerful bands like the aforementioned Jimi,Yes,Deep Purple,ELP,Sabbath,Blue Oyster Cult,Rush and the like. Newer groups like Coheed & Cambria are exciting.In recent years I have been very involved in recording my own solo material as well as other local bands & musicians. I have a fairly decent mobile recording venture which to me is a total blast! Lots of fun!

    I had been looking for a good but fairly inexpensive pair of active studio monitors - ones that i wouldnt mind taking on location for a recording & mix session. Of all the powered monitors in this price range (I paid $280 for the pair off ebay-sorry MF!),these had the most power (150w to the woofer & 75w to the tweeter)they also had larger woofers (8.75") than most in this price range. They are absolutely worth more than the $340 MF has them listed as!

    I really like the flat,neutral response these monitors provide. They also have EQ adjustments on the back to compensate for different rooms or locations. I generally leave these at their normal settings. The power output is very smooth with lots of headroom. The power switch is located on the top of each cabinet, which is easy to reach. The monitors accept both XLR & 1/4" jacks that are angled down to alow them to be placed up against a wall if needed. The actual size of these are just right for a smaller studio space or (in my case,taking them out on location). A red peak led lights up when pushing them too far. I purposefully cranked them up to that level breifly just to hear how loud they could get! they have more than enough power for my needs on location or in the studio.

    There is nothing I dislike about them. These monitors would be perfect if they had a protective grille over the woofers. I have to be careful when transporting them. Then again, these units are not really designed to go out of the studio!

    The construction is very solid in every way. Very good thought & workmanship went into the design of these monitors.

    I did a lot of shopping around & read a lot of reviews of several comparable brands before choosing this pair of monitors. They are the best value in its class & price range(anyone could spend hundreds more on the better known "name brands" - but why?)
