From PMC – the producer of true reference loudspeaker monitors – the all-new twotwo series combines PMC’s world-class design pedigree with sophisticated digital signal processing and active amplification to create a range of stunningly accurate, versatile, and compact two-way reference grade monitors.
The range comprises of three models – the twotwo.5– twotwo.6 and twotwo.8 – all designed and built in Britain using state-of-the-art technologies and components. The result is unrivalled level of clarity, transparency and accuracy for professional compact monitors. twotwo series models all share the same core design and features – the model number refers only to the approximate size (in inches) of the bass driver, with larger numbers denoting increasing cabinet volume, greater bass extension and higher SPL capabilities.
PMC’s attention to detail is evident throughout the design of twotwo series, but a feature new to the compact range is their ability to operate in either the vertical or horizontal orientations without compromising stereo imaging or tonal accuracy. This makes them ideally suited for nearfield monitoring of music and speech in situations where space is at a premium, such as in outside broadcast vehicles, small radio on-air studios and television sound control galleries, project music studios, video editing and post-production suites and for A&R evaluations.
The intermediate model in the twotwo range employs the same amplifiers and DSP technology as its diminutive sibling, but its larger ATL™ cabinet and 170mm (6.5”) bass unit endows it with a more extended bass performance and a higher SPLs. However, the twotwo.6 shares the same family characteristics of superb transparency and a neutral balance, and is an ideal monitor for use in medium-sized rooms where more power and dynamics are required.
The twotwo range were requested for ASCAP's (American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers) annual song writing event at industry veteran Miles Copeland's, Chateau Marouatte. Here's what some of the world-class songwriters/producers that attended the event had to say about their experience working with the twotwo's:
PMC’s unique (Advanced Transmission Line) enclosures have taken loudspeaker design to the highest level, using sophisticated cabinet construction, proprietary drive units, and patented absorption materials and techniques. The benefits are enormous compared to the relatively simple sealed and ported designs currently available elsewhere. Find out more
