Amphion Two18 2-Way Passive Studio Monitor - Single

Passive studio monitor, two-way design, 6.5-inch aluminum woofer
MFR# Two18

Product Description

The Amphion Two18 Studio Monitors is the number one choice for a number of A-list composers, sound engineers, and producers. The Two18 monitors provide them the confidence that their work will translate accurately to the outside world. These loudspeakers provide a neutral presentation, with a phase-accuracy and imaging that is second to none.

Whether you are composing, tracking, mixing, or mastering, the Two18 studio monitors are the perfect tool to assist you finishing your work both faster as well as achieving premium results. These transparent and elegantly-truthful studio monitors are perfectly balanced, and easily respond to any acoustic environment, personal tastes, or music genre.

The Two18 monitor provides very clear definition – particularly space and sonic placement, and even frequency response and dynamic changes. They remain full and sonically constant at lower listening levels, making them ideal for long-haul mix or mastering sessions. The Two18 studio monitors provide exceptionally precise imaging and a wide sweet spot, keeping the sound well-balanced even when you move around the room.

Amphion’s Two18 is a high-end passive monitor that employs custom-designed drivers, a high-density Corian waveguide, and a sealed enclosure with a passive radiator to deliver natural, transparent and un-hyped sound. The dual LF/MF drivers work in tandem with precise phase alignment to reproduce a wide sonic range with exceptional accuracy.

  • Flagship monitor of the Amphion range, and its supreme nearfield performer in the studio

Clear, detailed, and LOUD. A total joy to work with. The monitors totally disappear and you find yourself skin to skin with the music. There is an exemplary degree of detail, but instead of overwhelming with nitpicky minutiae they instead invite you into FEELING the music.

They’re a snag bargain, too, in terms of usefulness. The obvious comparison to the MM27 will never be resolved; the 27s are more exciting and more bad*ss, and possibly more impressive to clients, especially for producers, which is something that has real artistic and monetary value - I feel like people are too quick to dismiss the importance of getting the folks in the writing/production room excited and inspired - but the stunning “realness” of the Two18 renders really good music at least as well; when the music is good and the technically stuff falls away and you’re listening to the music instead of two speakers playing the music, something magical happens in the listener’s brain.

If I was a pop producer I would probably go the MM27 route… but I’d buy a pair of the One18s to go with them ;)

Speaking of - the incredibly modestly priced One18s are probably the strongest competition for the Two18s. They’re a bit less muscular sounding, and the bass isn’t chest rattling, but if there is a difference in how informative the bass frequencies are between the One18 and the Two18, it is quite small. The primary difference is SPL.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
