GBP Custom TAD Studio Speaker Systems

Recording studios need speaker systems that can be relied upon to give the truth about the sounds and performances under scrutiny during sessions. A speaker system should enhance the sound engineer’s and music producer’s abilities to evaluate the mix accurately without any over-glorification or false embellishment.

The GBP Custom Speaker systems represent a giant step forward in control room monitor system design. They combine the precision of the latest state-of-the-art TAD driver components with extremely efficient, robust, and phase-aligned cabinet systems.

The design objectives are simply stated:

  • To provide the flattest possible frequency response at listening positions
  • To provide the most accurate dynamic range at low listening or extremely high sound pressure levels
  • To provide a wide dynamic range with the most efficient use of amplifier power
  • Provide ease of installation and setup
  • Provide a variety of finish options and multiple size cabinet configurations for a variety of studio sizes and requirements
  • Provide engineers and producers a reference system consistent with professional standards that they can rely on
