ATC (Acoustic Transducer Company) Loudspeakers will be introducing the ATC SMC 110A Professional Monitor, a new compact, active three-way reference monitor, at AES NYC 2005. Designed with high-resolution sample rates and bit depths in mind for both stereo and multi-channel applications that feature a dedicated center channel and subwoofer system, the new low-profile SMC 110A comprises twin nine-inch ATC SL bass drivers, an ATC three-inch soft dome mid and a soft dome one-inch tweeter.
Maintaining the strict performance criteria of the taller models of ATC reference monitors, the SMC 110A offers a low profile specifically designed for better sight lines through windows and below obstructions. Unparalleled functionality and dynamic range, and a +/-80 x 10 degree dispersion are combined in a monitor system that offers an amplitude linearity of 50Hz - 20kHz (+/-2dB).
The active design matches six MOSFET amplifier blocks with the drivers to deliver an excellent transient response and a maximum SPL of 115dB. Amplifier output is 50 watts for HF, 100 watts for MF and 200 watts for LF. An LF contour control provides 6dB of bass boost.
All drive units are powered by individual amplifiers optimized for the driver's bandwidth, delivering balanced maximum sound pressure levels, substantial transient headroom with improved driver protection and precision control over speaker diaphragm travel. Even order filtered active crossovers are individually aligned at the factory and phase corrected for stereo imaging. ATC's drivers are manufactured in-house.
Units are priced at $30,000/pair. ATC is distributed in the USA by LasVegasProAudio.
