Three-way active studio monitor designed to offer the same sonic signature as their larger studio monitors in a compact form for smaller control rooms or for use as part of immersive systems.
The PMC 8-2 is a three-way active studio monitor with two 8-inch woofers, one PMC55 midrange driver and high-performance tweeter and Class D amplification. The PMC 8-2 uses two custom 8-inch ultra-long-throw bass drivers powered by a cutting edge 400W Class D amplifier. It offers excursions of 20mm for powerful low frequencies with ultra-low distortion. The PMC55’s midrange driver features a distinctive ‘N-compass’ waveguide to extend wide dispersion and midrange projection. Combined with the high-performance 1” soft-dome tweeter, it delivers an ultra-wide and stable image, resulting in a very wide sweet spot and smooth and natural sound. State-of-the-art Class D amplification is used throughout with 400W powering the midrange driver and 200W for the tweeter in addition to the dual 400W to the woofers. The PMC 8-2 includes PMC’s latest, highly accurate DSP-based crossovers for optimum performance. Configuration of the speaker is done via the controls on the rear or using PMC’s browser-based SoundAlign Software which allows for extensive boundary controls as well as EQ options. The PMC8-2 offers main-monitor performance in a surprisingly compact speaker thanks to the included ATL (Acoustic Transmission Line) bass loading technology that results in exceptional low-frequency extension while maintaining consistent tonal balance. Furthermore, the latest Laminair airflow technology brings further reduction in colouration as well as efficiency and dynamics improvements. The PMC 8-2 can be converted to a full range system by adding A PMC 8.2 Sub and selecting the XBD mode to perfectly integrate the units and create and coherent system with an extended frequency response down to 25Hz.
