PMC has launched new IB2S-AII and twin cabinet IB2S XBD-AII studio reference monitors.

This new generation of PMC’s IB2S active range is geared towards industry professionals working in stereo and surround formats and who require high-end monitoring, with both analogue and digital inputs, for reference and mastering applications.

As a development from previous models, the IB2S-AII and IB2S XBD-AII feature a pair of 3U rack-mounted electronics per channel that contain DSP-controlled Class-D amplification delivering 2025W for the single cabinet IB2S-AII and 3225W for the IB2S XBD-AII twin cabinet version. This increase in power lowers distortion and benefits the monitors with greater bass definition, attack, and extended headroom. The monitors can be housed off-board, meaning usability is significantly increased, especially with soffit mounting. Once installed all control of the monitor can be made via the RJ45 connect table-top remote.

The three-way IB2S-AII master cabinet can be purchased as a speaker in its own right, or together with the single-driver XBD bass cabinet to form the IB2S XBD-AII system. Both systems feature PMC’s hand-built preparatory drivers – a 10-inch carbon-fibre/Nomex piston, a 75mm fabric dome mid, and a 34mm soft-dome tweeter in each cabinet, and proprietary ATL (Advanced Transmission Line) bass-loading technology.

Both systems also provide user-adjustable HF and LF shelving filters, ±8dB input level trim, and an AES3 digital input. The input sensitivity of the balanced analogue inputs can also be adjusted from +4dB to +16dB, all of which, again, can be accessed with the RJ45 remote.

The IB2S XBD-AII works well for customers with large rooms, as the single-driver XBD bass cabinet incorporated into it adds +3dB of LF headroom. The two cabinets can be mounted in a vertical or side-by-side format.

The IB2S-AII and IB2S XBD-AII will ship from March 2019.
