Focal SM9

Focal SM9

The Focal SM9 puts two independent speaker systems within the same cabinet. The SM9 features a 1-inch inverted Beryllium dome tweeter (100W), a 6.5-inch midrange driver (100W), 8-inch woofer (400W) and a passive radiator. The system boasts a 30 to 40k Hz (±3dB) response and can be switched into two-way mode, which shuts down the woofer and radiator but reconfigures the crossover for two-way use.

Neumann has re-branded the Klein & Hummel speaker line and offers its first studio monitor. The Neumann KH 120 features a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide, flexible acoustical controls and analog/digital inputs. Two 50W Class-A/B amps power the 5.25-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter, providing a 52 to 21k Hz (± 3dB) response. A subwoofer is optional.

PMC’s AML2 powered monitors supersede the AML1 model with an upgraded power supply and an enhanced cabinet structure. The AML2 combines a flat-piston, 6.5-inch carbon-fiber/Nomex woofer capable of extreme 33mm excursion with a 1.5-inch soft-dome tweeter driven by Bryston-designed Class-A/B (100W/80W) amps.

Pelonis Sound and Acoustics Model 42

Pelonis Sound and Acoustics Model 42

For a new slant on monitoring, the Pelonis Sound and Acoustics Model 42 puts 4-inch, two-way dual-concentric drivers into compact, rhomboid-shaped enclosures fed from a rackmount DSP controller/crossover/200W bi-amplification unit. The angled front baffles point the speakers slightly upward in a desktop setup; downward when used on a high meter bridge; or inward toward the user when at ear level.

TC Electronic TC TouchMonitor TM9

TC Electronic TC TouchMonitor TM9

The TC TouchMonitor TM7 and TM9 from TC Electronic feature touchscreen display of consistent loudness and compatibility with domestic and international broadcast standards. The units come in six basic configurations based on connectivity (stereo or multichannel, analog/digital), feature sets and 7- or 9-inch screens.
