Incredibly accurate, fully enjoyable, Grammy-worthy mixes.
The Event 20/20 Passive Monitor Systems were developed to put true world-class reference monitoring into the hands of musicians previously shut out by the high cost of those systems. These favorites have helped set the standard for excellence in biamplified direct field monitor systems. Recording engineer Francis Buckley took the very first pair of 20/20s and won a Grammy for a project he mixed on them.
That legacy continues with the 20/20 V2 System. They have the time-tested low- and high-frequency driver elements found in the original 20/20: a one-inch silk dome, high-frequency driver specially designed to be superbly accurate yet non-fatiguing to your ears and an 8" mineral-impregnated, polypropylene cone, low-frequency driver that delivers fat, punchy, un-hyped bass. Also from the original: the active asymmetrical fourth-order crossover with incredibly accurate phase response for phenomenal stereo imaging.
I/O includes balanced XLR and 1/4" inputs. The V2 Passive Monitor units also feature continuously variable input gain control, full protection circuitry, and magnetic shielding.
- LF driver: magnetically shielded 8" mineral-filled polypropylene cone with 1-1/2" diameter high-temperature voice coil and damped rubber surround
- HF driver: magnetically shielded, one inch ferrofluid-cooled silk dome

Hear what you need to hear. Very accurate frequency response. These speakers are very loud for near-field monitors.
well I wanted an upgrade from my M-Audio BX5's, so I purchased these passive 20/20 monitors. I couldn't have been happier. I also purchased the cheap NADY $89 amp to power them, and they work great together. Don't be affraid to puchase these monitors, the ratings are not a lie. I have no complaints. The woofer and the box design give a great bass response, and the highs are about average. I have been mixing with a sub for a while, and it's amazing how muddy my lows really were. I can't judge these as much as I'd like because I bought the cheapest amp to power them, but even so they give out sound that is worth atleast 3 times what they cost.
These things are sweet. I've had them for about 6-7 years, and they sound better than anything. They are too good. They can kick like a mule, and they are as clear as day.
I've used both the original and the V2 version of the passive 20/20s. I certainly don't have golden ears, but these things are amazing.The original set needed some wiring work and, as a result, have been relegated to computer speakers (darn FINE computer speakers, thank you!). The replacement V2s are now my primary 'workstation' monitors.These things are perfect for direct-field monitoring and always sound clean, assuming they're supplied enough power from whatever amp is driving them. They take power nicely. I'm driving my set with an older amp rated for 120 RMS watts @ 8 ohms, and it's just amazing how much detail I can pick out of my sources (mostly synths and samplers).So - power them appropriately and you will not be disappointed.
