Behringer have produced a
pair of studio monitors, that speak nothing but the Truth. The Behringer
Truth B3031A monitors provide an unfiltered, full sound that is crystal
clear and without compromise. The ribbon tweeters are fair ahead of
their predecessors, while the Kevlar cone speakers deliver an intense
bass sound that is often only found in professional studios.
If you were wondering why Kevlar has been used in the monitors, here
is the reason: Kevlar has an incredible strength-to-weight ratio, which
is also the reason it is used in bulletproof vests. The bass drivers of
the Behringer Truth B3031A are not bulletproof, but do have the
necessary strength to handle the extremely high energy levels required
for a distortion-free bass. Since Kevlar has such a low mass, the
speaker cones also respond much more quickly than speakers made from
other materials, which is important for not only maintaining bass
integrity, but also for the accuracy of the midrange.
Ribbon tweeters are certainly not something that are often seen.
However, they provide an exceptionally wide horizontal dispersion, while
keeping the vertical alignment tight. This results in a seldom reached
perfection of high-frequency reproduction. Additionally, ribbon tweeters
are almost weightless, which (like the Kevlar) allows a fast response
to changes in the treble range. Ribbon tweeters are also able to
reproduce frequencies far above the normal hearing range. While the
sounds are not able to be heard, their lower harmonics are, resulting in
a stunning sound impression.
