Event Electronics has announced ‘a new generation of the cult 20/20bas speaker that revolutionised the recording industry in the 1990s and secured a place in the hearts of audio engineers the world over’.

Event Electronics 20/20BASFirst released in 1995, the original 20/20 close-field studio monitor launched the Event brand worldwide.

Now, 15 years later, Event has released the 20/20BAS. This new speaker incorporates a number of fundamental improvements over the original model while remaining true to its character and performance strengths. ‘Here at Event we’re constantly inundated with requests from owners of the original 20/20 speakers, asking us to breathe new life into the legacy’ says Peter Freedman, President of Event. ‘Now the time has come to do just that with the new 20/20BAS. Borrowing several technologies from the Opal while still respecting the character, tone and voicing of the original 20/20, we’ve created a speaker that has the best transients and dynamics in its class while exhibiting incredibly low distortion.’

The original transducer design and cabinet volume have been maintained, however the high- and low-frequency amplifiers, cabinet bracing and overall construction have been revolutionised to improve audio characteristics, increase dynamics and extend reliability.

‘Everyone in Event’s design department has great respect for the speaker, but we saw a few areas where we could use techologies developed for Opal to get even better dynamics with lower distortion,’ says Event’s Director of Engineering, Marcelo Vercelli. ‘The new low frequency amp can deliver up to 250W of peak power into the woofer. This gives you the boom... the definition in the bottom end that you’re looking for.’
