Nearfield/midfield studio monitors with built-in DSP.

Image 2 is a dedicated nearfield/midfield workhorse. Using the latest DSP and Class-D amplification, Fluid Audio has pushed the limits to create stunning results. The Image 2 delivers accurate imaging, extremely flat frequency response and incredible bass extension with very low distortion.

With support for Sonarworks SoundID Reference calibration import, the room calibration software will be integrated directly into Image 2 studio monitors. Giving users the ability to create their own calibration profile for their monitor setups to remove unwanted coloration and experience the most accurate studio reference sound for any studio or home environment.

The Image 2 is also a two-in-one monitor: A full-range mixing and mastering system that can switch into cubemix mode at the press of a footswitch. Cubemix mode enables engineers to dial-in low end and midrange levels for even playback on many “bass challenged” devices. It further helps with the adjustment of vocals, nailing the kick drums and overall balance.

It’s future-ready USB port expands the Image 2’s incredible functionality and provides the ability to upload and run exported room correction files natively at the monitor level, as well switching between profiles (Image 2 supports loading of four different SoundID Reference profiles) and cubemix mode.
The newly developed AMT tweeter delivers precise, detailed response, expansive headroom, and low distortion, while the aluminum cone mid-range driver utilizes a shorting ring within its motor structure to substantially reduce harmonic distortion. Focusing the magnetic flux and concentrating it within the voice coil gap reduces modulation movement of the voice coil which makes the variation of system inductances more linear as input current varies. The end result is accuracy so clean; mixing takes on a whole new flow.

The opposed, Dual 8″ ultra-long-throw bass woofers are interlocked at their magnets from within and add improved cabinet stability and provide extended bass response (+/- 4.6dB 28Hz–20kHz; +/- 2.0dB 80Hz–20kHz). Each bass driver is individually powered by the latest state of the art 225W Class-D amplifier.

Driving the entire system is the newly developed Class-D Quad amplifier. Spending the most development time on this important element, the Image 2 amp has extremely low self-noise, very low distortion, improved THD+N performance, improved IMD performance, and lower output impedance. The Image 2’s sealed enclosure design provides a natural, 6dB/oct roll-off for a more controlled low frequency response. This translates into less likelihood of unwanted interaction with the room, which means these monitors are less sensitive to positioning.

Mixing or mastering on the Image 2 will deliver professional results that are more accurate, and more effortlessly achieved than ever before. Using the Fluid Audio DCT (DSP Configuration Tool) you can push SoundID Reference calibration profiles to the built-in embedded DSP platform onboard the Image 2. This will compensate for room imperfections that acoustically treated and untreated rooms sometimes have. Using SoundID Reference (v5.6 and newer) and a measuring microphone, you can measure your room, create calibration curves specifically for your environment and upload them directly onto the Image 2 with the DCT tool. The Image 2 supports up to four different profiles. As an example: Flat target, Dolby Atmos Music, Custom Target as well as Translation Check. All of these can be loaded as different profiles and switched between using the DCT tool running on Windows or OSX. (USB has to be connected to both monitors to switch between the profiles). You can also enable and disable cubemix mode using the DCT tool (which will not affected by the calibration profiles).
