June 2005—Unveiled at Musikmesse 2005, the Active Linear Phase (ALP) 5 bi-amplified monitor from Event Electronics (www.event1.com) features a 1-inch dome HF mounted in an elliptical waveguide for a wide sweet spot and is paired with a 5.25-inch, rubber surround/polypropylene-cone woofer. Response is stated as 53 to 20k Hz, and onboard amps provide max SPLs of 105 dB. Inputs are balanced XLR and TRS and unbalanced RCA, and the speaker is mag-shielded.

June 2005—Event's Active Linear Phase (ALP) 5 puts a sweet-sounding, bi-amplified design in a small cabinet.

December 2003—Event now offers a passive version of its new 20/20bas. Like its powered counterpart, this monitor had a facelift, and features an 8-inch LF driver and 1-inch HF driver. The published response is from 50 to 20k Hz, and the power handling is rated at 150 watts continuous, 200 watts at peak.

December 2003—Event offers a 15-inch sub to complement its 20/20™ near-field monitors. The 20/20 S250 features a 250W amplifier that powers the LF driver to provide a frequency response from 28 Hz to 120 Hz. With pass-through inputs to accommodate five channels, it's ready for 5.1 systems.

October 2003—Features include: two-way; 8-inch, mineral-filled polypropylene-cone LF driver with 1.5-inch high-temperature voice coil, neodymium magnet; 1-inch ferrofluid-cooled soft-dome HF radiator, neodymium magnet; frequency response of 35-20k Hz; active fourth-order asymmetrical crossover (2.6 kHz); precision-calibrated input sensitivity, HF and LF trim controls; balanced 1⁄4-inch and XLR inputs; dual linear-flow bass ports; protection includes RF interference, over-temperature, turn-on/off transient, subsonic filter, internal fuse; power-on/clip LED; and 3⁄4-inch vinyl-laminated MDF cabinet. $1,499/pair.

September 2003—Event has rolled out its new flagship monitor, the Studio Precision 8. The new monitor features an 8-inch, low-frequency driver; a 1-inch, soft-dome HF tweeter; and comes in either passive or active versions. The active 8s are powered by 200 watts on the low end and 80 watts on the high, and feature continuously variable low- and high-frequency trim controls, a continuously variable input-sensitivity control and a switchable 80Hz highpass filter. Dual large-diameter bass ports reside on the front, and connection is made via balanced XLR or 1⁄4-inch inputs.

April 2003—The new flagship monitors from Event Electronics, the Studio Precision 8 Series feature a new soft-dome tweeter for an expanded stereo soundstage and more precise imaging. Matched to an 8-inch woofer with a neodymium magnet for greater efficiency/lower distortion, the enclosure's front-mount, linear-flow ports are designed for better LF coupling into the room and improved bass transient response. Bi-amped and passive versions are available; the active model offers 280 watts per speaker (200 + 80 watts), with LF and HF trim controls, a continuously variable input-sensitivity control and a switchable 80Hz highpass filter. Shipping now, the active ASP8s are $1,499/pair; the passive PSP8s are $799/pair. TO READ THE REVIEW ON THE ASP8, CLICK HERE.

January 2003—The Tuned Reference 8 (TR8) and Tuned Reference 5 (TR5) Bi-Amplified Direct-Field Monitoring Systems from Event Electronics provide flat response and uncolored sound, combining a new high-efficiency amp with technology from Event's 20/20bas and Project Studio models. The TR8 has a shielded, 8-inch, mineral-filled woofer; a 1.5-inch diameter damped-rubber surround mid and a shielded, 1-inch natural silk-dome tweeter. The TR5 matches the same tweeter with a shielded 5.25-inch polypropylene woofer. Both feature a power-on LED, subsonic filter, output-current limiting and protection against RF interference, excessive temperature and turn-on/off transients. Inputs are RCAs and balanced XLR and 1⁄4-inch TRS. The TR8s are $599/pair; the TR5s list at $399/pair.

November 2002—Designed for the near-field needs of budget-minded users is the TR (Tuned Reference) Series from Event Electronics. The Series includes the TR5 ($399 per pair, list) and the TR8 ($599 per pair), based on the popular 20/20 and Project Studio monitors. Both the TR5 and TR8 utilize a bi-amplified design, boasting a frequency response of 53 to 19k Hz, ±3 dB, and 35 to 20k Hz, ±3 dB, respectively. The TR5 uses a 5.25-inch woofer and a neodymium, 25mm, soft-dome HF driver. The TR8 uses a similar 8-inch driver and 1-inch silk-dome tweeter. Both units are magnetically shielded and include balanced XLR/1/4-inch and unbalanced RCA connections.

October 2002—This two-way, bi-amplified, Direct Field Monitor System offers a 5.25-inch mineral-filled polypropylene cone woofer with 1-inch high-temperature voice coil and 1-inch Ferrofluid-cooled natural silk-dome neodymium tweeter. Other features: magnetically shielding; >108dB SPL output; 53-19k Hz frequency response; 2.6kHz active fourth-order asymmetrical crossover; variable input sensitivity; and balanced (TRS and XLR) and unbalanced RCA inputs. Protection: RF interference, output current limiting, over-temperature, turn-on/off transient and subsonic filter. Price: $599/pair.

December 2001—The flagship surround system from Event Electronics includes five 20/20bas bi-amplified direct field monitors and the 20/20/15 system subwoofer at a system cost of $3,695. The mag-shielded 20/20bas mains ($499 each) are two-way active monitors with two onboard amps (130W woofer; 70W tweeter), an 8-inch polypropylene woofer and a 25mm Ferrofluid-cooled, silk-dome tweeter. The crossover (2.6 kHz) is an active fourth-order asymmetrical type, and the 20/20bas has a frequency response of 38 to 20k Hz (±2 dB). Additional features include variable input gain and high/low-frequency trims, and the cabinet measures 10.25x14.75x11.75 inches (WxHxD). The 20/20/15 subwoofer ($1,199) features a 15-inch long-throw woofer. The unit includes a 250W linear amp, frequency response is 28 to 120 Hz and maximum SPL at 1 meter is 120 dB. The integrated full bass-management control system has six discrete active balanced inputs with pass-through outputs, and controls include LFE channel input sensitivity, monitor input sensitivity, mute, monitor/subwoofer phase control and a bypass switch.

June 2000—Part of Event’s PS Series, the PS8 is a two-way bi-amped monitor. The LF power amp puts out 70W, and the HF amp puts out 30W. The cabinet has an 8-inch polypropylene cone woofer with a high-temperature voice coil and a damped rubber surround, combined with a 1-inch silk-dome, Ferrofluid-cooled tweeter. The PS8 employs an active fourth-order asymmetrical crossover defined at 2.2 kHz. On the rear panel, the PS8 provides both a 1/4-inch TRS jack and an XLR connector for input signals. These two inputs are hard-wired in parallel, enabling either input to be used as a pass-through connector. Additional models include the PS5, PS6 and 20/20/15 subwoofer. MSRP (per pair): $849 for PS8, $699 for PS6 and $599 for PS5. The 20/20/15 subwoofer is $1,199. TO READ THE REVIEW ON THE PS6, VISIT HERE.

March 1999—Unveiled at AES, Event Electronics' new subwoofer is designed to complement its 20/20bas bi-amplified two-way monitors. The appropriately named 20/20 System Sub puts a single 15-inch woofer in an enclosure with a 250W amp and input routing for five speakers. The $999 sub features a blend/discrete switch so the five other channels can run either full-bandwidth with natural roll-off in the 28 to 40Hz range or by blending the satellites with a 20 to 80Hz tunable crossover, with the sub handling any lower frequencies. The 20/20bas speakers are $500 each or $999/pair.

March 1999—The big news from Event is next month's launch of its Tria Surround Unit, a complete $2,999 package set up for 6.1 surround monitoring, with six powered satellites and a dual 8-inch powered sub. Best of all, the system includes a hardware remote switch providing solo or mute of any channel, along with a master level control: Just connect the TSU to one of today's surround-ready digital consoles for a complete mixing package—right out of the box.
