Behringer B2031A Truth


Active 2-Way Reference Studio Monitor

The TRUTH B2031A is the improved version of the best selling B2031. With the B2031A, we have developed an active 2-way studio monitor with XLR and balanced 1/4 "TRS jacks, which provides a neutral sound and a linear frequency response (50 Hz - 21 kHz). Its integrated 150- and 75-watt power amplifiers have good power reserves and separately controlled limiter for bass and treble.

A long-stroke 8.75 "bass speaker with a special polypropylene membrane ensures precise, deep bass. The detailed reproduction of the upper frequency range is ensured by a ferrofluid-cooled tweeter. Behringer's waveguide technology, as well as an active frequency sweep with fourth-order Linkwitz-Riley filters, ensure phase linearity, exceptional dispersion characteristics, excellent stereo image reproduction and a wide "sweet spot".

The B2031A can be adapted to various acoustic environments and subwoofers. Magnetic shielding allows installation in close proximity to screens. All TRUTH monitors are delivered as hand-matched stereo pairs.

  • Ultra-linear frequency response from 50 Hz to 21 kHz with individual frequency diagrams
  • Built-in 265-Watt Bi-amp module with enormous power reserve
  • Ultra-high resolution ferrofluid-cooled tweeter
  • Long-throw 8 ¾" woofer with special polypropylene diaphragm and deformation-resistant aluminum die-cast chassis

Truth Monitor

These are OK. There are other options in this price range that I think would be better options. I really like Behringer for the cost/benefit ratio they usually provide. I have some Behringer gear that I love and will never sell as it has become an essential part of my sound while many other high-end peices of gear have come and gone. But on these monitors, i don't trust my mix. I use other monitors as a reference many times just to check, and I guess I don't like feeling like I have to do that. The primary thing I notice is that they are pretty bassy, so I tend to cut. Then when I play through a car or home stereo as a final audit, I wish I would have left the bass in. These will work, and I do use them everyday. i guess once you learn thier deficiencies, you automatically compensate for it, but just feel that these could be more accurate. Not a bad buy, but I don't "Just love them". Bear in mind, I am not an audio mastering engineer, or a pro studio engineer either. A pro might come into my studio and advise that it is because how I have my room set up, or that I need acoustic treatment here or there regardless of what monitors I am using. I also find my only pair of recording headphones, the AKG Studio 240s bassy as well. So I have often wondered if it is just me? But, I know and can identify even balanced flat sound from trusted audio sources. Based on my experience with these, regardless of brand, in the future, if I were to replace these, I will likely go down to a 5" speaker to mix and monitor with.

Now I know what linear sound reproduction is.
In the past I did have 3 way towers with tube amp, and they sounded great. Current ones also sound great, but differently – they are not “colored” by tube amp and absolutely non-linear frequency response.
These are neutral and very precise. I thumb through my music collection and noticed how many details I did not hear before. Very impressive.

Listened through NI KA6 DAC at 24/96.

ps. I am not a sound engineer, but music/movies lover.
Bought a pair of this after "youtubing" reviews by real music producers.


A comparing review

I'm giving 5 stars because I have not heard higher end monitors above this price point in my life, so I can only compare B2031A with B2030A which I also own.

When putting both aside on a A/B comparison, the result is unbelievable!!
The B2030A sounds canned and strange!
I've not read on the internet this kind of differences between the two, but they are surely different, and B2031A sounds much much better, surely worth the difference in value.

I've tested the all 4 speaks on all, so if it a problem with my B2030A, it is the same with both...
Choose wisely!

Very impressive sound. I really don't regret. Best deal on the market.
