The Fluid Audio Image 2 Studio Monitor delivers accurate imaging, extremely flat frequency response, and incredible bass extension with very low distortion.
The Image 2 is also a 2 in 1 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 kickdrums 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 4 different SoundID Reference profiles) and cubemix mode. Mixing or mastering on the Image 2 will deliver professional results that are more accurate, and more effortlessly achieved than ever before.

Three-Way Driver System
The newly developed AMT tweeter delivers precise, detailed response, expansive headroom, and low distortion, while the aluminum cone midrange 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, adding improved cabinet stability and providing extended bass response. Each bass driver is individually powered by the latest state-of-the-art 225W Class-D amplifier.
Class-D Quad 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, 6 dB/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.
