PMC launches twotwo monitors at IBC2012

The UK-based Professional Monitor Company (PMC) has announced a new range of powered two-way nearfield monitors at this year’s IBC show. The active twotwo series combines PMC’s design and Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) bass loading technology with digital signal processing.   The new range comprises two models available in October – the twotwo.5 and twotwo.6 – with a third model, the twotwo.8, expected in the new year. All three models share the same core design and features, with model number referring to the approximate size (in inches) of the bass driver.   The new range includes several features new to the nearfield market including a custom-designed 27mm soft-dome tweeter and matt doped natural-fibre bass drivers. Connections include analogue phono and XLR as well as an AES3 digital input, which will handle all sample rates up to 192kHz.   The onboard DSP engine, derived from PMC’s IB2S-A, optimises the response of the drivers, maximises dispersion, and provides non-invasive protection using modelled excursion limiting. The built-in Class D dual-amplification system delivers 50W to the tweeter and 150W to the bass driver.   Speakers may be mounted vertically or horizontally without compromising tonal accuracy or stereo/surround imaging. There is no need for a separate horizontal version of the speaker for use as a centre channel, or in environments where horizontal use is a necessity for space reasons. The twotwo also includes PMC’s new DeeCup vibration-reducing pads on each face, which decouple the speaker from its flat surface, and also prevent it from moving or slipping.
