The stand-alone IB2S-A offers discerning users the attributes of PMC’s large ATL™ reference active monitors in a more compact form. They are the ideal monitors for high-end reference monitoring and mastering applications.
The DSP-controlled, Class-D powered cabinets make use of PMC’s ATL™ (Advanced Transmission Line) bass-loading technology, providing a smoothly controlled, high-resolution low-frequency response. The bass units in the cabinets, which are identical, feature the 10-inch carbon-fibre/Nomex™ piston drivers from the renowned IB1S and IB2S speakers, while the IB2S-A cabinet features PMC’s hand-built 75mm fabric-dome driver to handle the mid range and the 34mm soft-dome tweeter from the BB5 XBD-A. 960W of independent, audiophile-quality power is available to each active master cabinet: 200W for the high-frequency and mid-range drivers, with 560W directed to the LF driver for extended, low-distortion precision monitoring all the way down to 20Hz.
The IB2S-A features user-adjustable HF and LF shelving filters, per-channel ±8dB input level trims, an AES3 digital input as standard , and the ability to adjust the input sensitivity of the balanced analogue inputs from +4dB to +20dB. The EQ, level trims and analogue/digital input selection settings may be adjusted from a distance with an RJ45-connected remote, also supplied as standard.
The three-way IB2S-A master cabinet may be purchased as a speaker in its own right, or together with the single-driver XBD bass cabinet to form the IB2S XBD-A system, following the pattern established by the popular BB5-XBD-A reference monitor.
Since the launch of the IB2S it has featured worldwide with high profile clients such as Ronald Prent – Galaxy, Kraftwerk – Kling Klang, Teldex Studios – Berlin, JVC – Japan and the list goes on. Its potent performance and unsurpassed definition across the audio spectrum make it the ideal reference monitor for any stereo or surround project.
