The Image 2 is dedicated to nearfield and midfield use with integrated DSP technology, side-firing subs and Class-D amplification
The Image 2 delivers incredible imaging, frequency response, output, low distortion, and depth of field. With its unique look, compact size and a performance that is hard to believe.
The Image 2 is a 2 in 1 monitor; a full range mixing and mastering system that also offers a mixcube mode. Mixcube mode helps dial in low end and mids for a wide range of “bass challenged” devices. It also helps adjust the overall balance, depth, vocals, and nail the kickdrum.

Future-ready USB port functionality furthers the Image 2’s incredible sonic features and will extend the ability to accurately process source material via onboard room correction in the future.
In addition, our newly developed AMT tweeter delivers precise transient response and high details free of distortion. Clarity has never been this easy.
Our in-house custom aluminum cone mid-range driver utilize shorting rings, substantially reducing the harmonic and intermodulation distortion associated with voice coil displacement. It also reduces the modulation of magnetic flux during the movement of the voice coil to make the variation of system inductances more linear as input current varies. The end result is an accuracy so clean mixing takes on a whole new flow.
Dual 8″ Opposed ultra-long-throw interlocked bass woofers add improved cabinet stability and provide extended bandwidth (28 Hz-20 kHz – +/- 4.6dB). Each bass driver is individually powered by the latest state of the art 225W Class-D amplifier.
And driving this system is our newly developed Class-D amplifier with very low distortion, ample headroom, lower output noise, improved THD+N performance, improved IMD performance, and lower output impedance.
Utilizing a closed cabinet provides a natural roll off, lack of “bass humps”, and less likelihood of unwanted frequency interaction with the room which means these monitors are less sensitive to positioning.
All of this together makes mixing and mastering on the Image 2 a more accurate and enjoyable experience than ever before.
