Event Electronics announces the release of its very first three-way studio monitoring system, the 2030. It combines three discrete drivers for use in near-field monitoring applications.
Event’s engineers designed a new wave guide assembly to house the speaker’s mid-range and high frequency drivers, as well as optimize audio dispersion and power response characteristics.
For the critical mid-range application a 3.5-inch cone transducer uses a pressed pulp and polypropylene cone, combined with an optimized magnetic circuit. The driver is loaded onto a shallow wave guide that results in increased sensitivity and output while generating very low distortion artifacts for a well-defined, upfront vocal character.
Combined with an aluminum alloy dome tweeter, the midrange-high frequency wave guide assembly employs a set of electronic acoustic filters, derived from Event’s flagship Opal studio monitor, to maximize phase, time correction and frequency response characteristics. The resulting signal processing achieves controlled audio reproduction and smooth frequency response performance that Event says extends well above 20 kHz.
The 2030 amplifier uses a proprietary soft clipping power amplifier design topology that is said to never allow the amplifier’s output waveform to become jagged or harsh, for a speaker system whose character stays consistent no matter what the output level, as audible distortion artifacts are kept under control.
