Event Electronics 2030
May 7, 2012 1:00 AM, By Erin Shipps, senior associate editor
Event Electronics' first three-way studio monitoring system, the 2030 combines three discrete drivers to allow for accurate reproduction of the entire audio spectrum. Rather than simply adding a mid-range driver to the 20/20BAS configuration, which could have been easily achieved, Event's engineers took the three-way and 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" cone transducer was engineered using 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 distortionartifacts, giving the 2030 speaker system a defined, upfront vocal character. A key design feature of the 2030 amplifier is use of a proprietary, soft clipping power amplifier design topology that never allows the amplifier's output waveform to become jagged or harsh.
