Summary: The polar and impulse response of this speaker are absolutely excellent. As good as anything I've ever seen. For the price you just can't go wrong. The forward lobe is centered about 11.25 degrees toward the tweeter and is about 30 degrees wide and so the tweeter should be placed at ear height or a little below. CD WG on axis dip is centered above 12kHz on axis and is pretty much gone by 22.5 degrees off axis.
Summary: I am happy with the quality of the speakers. Remember that these are passive speaker pairs (no built-in amps). I have a 200W x 2 yamaha powered mixer and the speakers can handle high power without distortion quite well. For recording, I trained my ears by listening to quality music CD with these speakers then try to produce the same sound quality. Overall, I happy with the speakers. In term of "true" sound quality, personally, I think it's not quite "true" though.
Summary: you need to buy a 300watt amp with these speakers if you want to use them, cost about 200 more. did tell me that they were support speakers in an obvious way. slightly upset. but overall great sound.
Summary: First pair of studio monitors I have ever owned, so I really can't compare them to anything else. However, I'll just say that I love these speakers for my mixing table and feel that they deserve the highest rating as given by others. If you don't have a power amp to drive these speakers, get the active pair by Behringer. These speakers sound great.
Summary: These speakers sound great. I have some Polk towers in another part of the house and these every bit as good or better. Note, they do not come with grill cloth... I will add my own because they are in my family room. Very accurate with great separation and presence.
Summary: Currently have a pair of Polk TSi 100's acting as studio monitors. These were $198 shipped originally. I thought something was lacking and picked up a pair of the Behringer 2031p's on recommendation for $159 shipped. Just on a physical presence alone the 2031p's dominated the TSi 100. Hooked them up and played some familiar mixes through and immediately the sound stage was wider.
Excerpt: Играют в паре с ресивером Denon AVR 1507. Верхи слышно не так детально, как на Yamaha HS80M, но вполне достаточно для бытового использования, ощущение присутствия в зале при прослушивании классической музыки есть. Отлично отыгрывают низы, не гудят.
Pros: Соотношение цена/качество Соответствие заявленным характеристикам Фазоинвертор на передней стенке.
Cons: Нет защитной решётки ("гриля") Сопротивление 4 Ома, подойдут не для каждого усилителя/ресивера.
