Anaheim, CA (January 3, 2017)—UK-based studio monitor manufacturer PMC will unveil two additions to its next-generation Main Monitor range of active Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) loudspeakers at the 2017 NAMM Show: the MB3 and BB6.
Both are high-resolution active monitors with digital and analog inputs; designed for freestanding or soffit-mounted use in recording, mixing, mastering and outside broadcast applications; and are available as single- or twin-cabinet (XBD) versions.
Key features include proprietary Class-D amplification, first unveiled on the QB1-A main studio monitor, and hand-built, precision-matched 34mm soft-dome tweeter and 75mm fabric mid-range driver coupled with the latest generation of the Radial low-frequency driver, among others. The MB3 features a 12-inch Radial driver; the BB6 features a 15-inch Radial driver; teamed with the ATL, these exhibit a flat response down to 20 and 17 Hz, respectively.
Both the MB3 and BB6 are available as single-cabinet (MB3-A and BB6-A) and twin-cabinet (MB3 XBD-A and BB6 XBD-A) active versions; the latter provides 3 dB more headroom. The MB3 XBD-A has a maximum SPL of 129 dB while the BB6 XBD-A will produce 131 dB. Dedicated center-channel versions of the MB3 and BB6 are available for multi-channel systems; for these, subwoofers are not required as the 20-60Hz sub-bass frequency range is already comprehensively covered.
