PMC twotwo Monitors
PMC announce a new range of powered two-way nearfield monitors.
The active twotwo series comes in midnight blue, with two models initially, the twotwo.5 and twotwo.6. A third, the twotwo.8, will be added in the new year. All three share the same core design and features; the model number refers to the approximate size (in inches) of the bass driver, with larger numbers denoting increasing cabinet volume, greater bass extension and higher SPLs.
Like other PMC speakers, the twotwo series is based on ATL designs. The range includes custom-designed 27mm precision soft-dome tweeter and three new matt doped natural-fibre bass drivers. Connections include analogue phonos and XLRs as well as an AES3 digital input, which will handle all sample rates up to 192kHz.
The onboard DSP engine, derived from that employed in PMC's IB2S-A, is designed to optimise the response of the drivers. The built-in Class D dual-amplification system builds on the amplifiers developed for PMC's powered range, delivering 50W to the tweeter and 150W to the bass driver.
Another new design feature of the twotwo series, reflected in the range’s rotatable logo, is that the speakers may be mounted vertically or horizontally. 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 DeeCup vibration-reducing pads on each face, which are designed to decouple the speaker from its flat surface, and also prevent it from moving or slipping.
