London, UK (January 7, 2015)—PMC announced it will be launching a new addition to its twotwo range of active near field monitors at NAMM 2015, the twotwo sub2.
The new sub2 is designed to complement the twotwo range, providing greater headroom and dynamics than its smaller sibling, the twotwo sub1. The sub2 is a low-distortion, active subwoofer featuring PMC’s ATL bass-loading technology, Class D amplification and DSP-based filtering and bass management. The sub2 also features a rigid, braced cabinet, aiming to ensure unwanted coloration is reduced to inaudible levels.
The built-in amplifier delivers 400W of power to the LF driver, which has an active frequency response from 20 Hz up to 200 Hz, and, according to the company, the tonal balance of the output remains consistent at all listening levels. The sub2 can be deployed in a 2.1 configuration with twotwo series monitors to gain extra bass extension and headroom, or to reproduce the low frequency effects (LFE) channel in a surround monitoring system. Used with the twotwos, the sub2 may be used where midfield performance levels are required, but where there may not be the space for large-scale reference monitors, such as in broadcast or post-production environments.
The sub2 features an AES3 input with a built-in sample rate converter, and can accept digital signals at sample rates between 32 and 192 kHz.
