This three-way active studio monitor is designed to provide critical reference monitoring for the most demanding applications.

As with any PMC loudspeaker, thanks to its super-consistent dispersion and tonal balance, the PMC8-2 may be simply and seamlessly combined with smaller PMC speakers to create larger multi-channel or immersive systems.

The twin bass drivers are partnered with the same PMC55 mid-range tweeter, DSP system and four channels of 400W Class-D amplification used in the PMC6-2. Again, the speaker is configurable directly via the rear panel or using the browser-based SoundAlign™ software from a computer or tablet.

Together with the precisely tuned ATL™ cabinet and hexagonal Laminair™ vents, the PMC8-2 delivers phenomenal performance that approaches that of our Main reference monitors, with smooth and consistent bass response down to 25Hz, a revealing mid-range and wide, stable sound-staging. As with the rest of the range, the PMC8-2’s superb definition, fidelity, dynamics and bass accuracy allow mix decisions to be made quickly with complete confidence, and with no listening fatigue even after long sessions.

PMC8-2s can be upgraded through the addition of a PMC8-2 SUB to create an XBD system, enhancing the system’s bass headroom by 6dB. Dedicated short and taller floor-stands are available for the PMC8-2 and PMC8-2 XBD systems which position them on the ideal listening axis.

THE SOUNDALIGN INTERFACE

TAKE CONTROL

SOUNDALIGN digital interface
soundalign devices
The SoundAlign™ web interface is a simple and intuitive means of controlling and configuring our nearfield and midfield active monitors and subwoofers. Each monitor incorporates an internal web server accessible over a standard wired Ethernet connection using a web browser on any smartphone, tablet, PC, or Mac. It makes set-up easy, whether it’s stereo or the most complex immersive system.
ABOUT SOUNDALIGN
One of the keys to our legendary natural, uncoloured sound is our Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) bass-loading. ATL uses energy generated by the bass unit in a much more intelligent and efficient way than speaker designs based on ported or sealed boxes. Our Laminair airflow technology further enhances ATL and improves definition, timing and eradicates unwanted air noise.

WIDE DISPERSION

All PMC monitors have ultra-wide dispersion and a linear off-axis response. This creates a vast sweet spot for stereo and a seamless sound field for immersive formats, allowing sounds to be placed and adjusted with complete precision.
