Denver, CO (September 16, 2019)—RBH Sound has unveiled its new PM-8, an 8-inch, 2-way powered studio monitor, marking the company’s first entry into the powered studio monitor market.
At the heart of the PM-8 are RBH's Signature Series drivers: for bass and midrange, an 8-inch aluminum cone mid/woofer, and for treble, an AMT (Air Motion Transformer) tweeter. This proprietary duo is powered by a specialized dual-channel Class D amplifier supplying 150 W to the tweeter and 250 W to the woofer. The on-board DSP features a FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filter to enhance phase correction of the speaker's response, also doubling as an active crossover network—thus eliminating passive components.
The amplifier has level and preset DSP selection controls as well as a XLR-balanced input and throughput; also included is an RCA-to-XLR connector for convenience. The PM-8's audio signal is processed fully in the digital domain, and converted back to analog only at the final output stage in an effort to keep the fidelity of the audio signal as pure as possible.
RBH's production and assembly of the PM-8 is carried out at its world headquarters in Layton, Utah. The PM-8 cabinets are constructed of MDF and feature extensive internal bracing to prevent cabinet resonance. To further reduce cabinet vibrations, RBH engineered side accent panels made of high-density composite material, available in a range of colors.
The PM-8 is expected to ship before the end of October 2019 both direct and through the company’s authorized dealer and distributor network, starting at $1,949.95 each.
