TransAudio Group has announced the immediate U.S. availability of the SCM25A Pro from U.K. loudspeaker manufacturer ATC. The SCM25A Pro is ATC’s first compact active three-way studio control monitor. Designed for positioning on a meter bridge, or rack-mountable for broadcast applications, it offers high performance in the most compact possible form factor.
The speaker’s drive units all use large diameter, under-hung voice coils for excellent dynamic range and linearity. The mid-range is ATC’s soft dome, while the bass driver is hand-built in-house, using a carbon-paper cone with high excursion capability. Onboard amplification features the ATC’s class A/B Mosfet output stage delivering 150W to the bass driver, 60W to the mid and 25W to the high frequency driver. All three stages are fed by fourth-order critically damped crossover filters with phase compensation.
TransAudio Group president Brad Lunde noted, “The ATC SCM25A Pro is perfect for applications requiring a small package with high-resolution and bass extension that is normally found with a larger three-way design. The ATC 25 is designed to perform over and above what you’d expect of its size, but without the uncontrolled low-frequency response found with many compact designs.”
The SCM25A Pro produces a wide, stable soundfield with low coloration and offers low-frequency extension to 42Hz (-6dB). The unit’s ported enclosure measures 10.4in high, 16.9in wide and 16in deep.
