PMC to Debut New Reference Monitors at AES London

PMC will unveil its latest studio monitoring system on May 22, 2010, at the AES convention in London. Similar to the industry-standard BB5 XBD-A but lighter and more affordable, and intended for high-end reference monitoring and mastering applications, PMC’s new IB2S XBD-A monitor comprises two DSP-controlled, Class-D powered cabinets fitted with PMC’s ATL (Advanced Transmission Line) technology: a three-way master and a slave XBD cabinet with an extra bass driver.

Each channel employs two of the 10-inch piston bass drivers from the renowned IB1S and IB2S speakers, together with PMC’s hand-built 75mm midrange fabric dome driver and the 34mm soft-dome tweeter from the BB5 XBD-A. Each active master cabinet offers 960 watts of power (200W each from the HF and midrange drivers, 560W from the LF driver), while the slave XBD cabinets contribute a further 560W, making for 1,520W per channel of ultra low-distortion precision monitoring all the way down to below 20 Hz.

Controllable via an RJ45 remote, with user-adjustable HF and LF shelving filters, per-channel ±8dB input level trims, analog input sensitivity from +4dB to +20dB and an AES3 digital input as standard, the PMC IB2S XBD-A is scheduled to ship this summer.
