The KH 310 three-way active monitor features a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion Waveguide with wide horizontal and narrow vertical dispersion, said to provide smoother off-axis response. The 8.25-inch woofer, 3-inch midrange and 1-inch tweeter are powered by Class AB amplification (continuous, 150W, 70W and 70W), with crossover frequencies at 650 Hz and 2 kHz (24dB/octave slope). Frequency response is measured at 34 Hz to 21 kHz, ±3 dB, with max SPL of 114 dB averaged.

The twotwo•6 from PMC features a 6.5-inch driver that incorporates the company’s ATL bass loading technology and a 1-inch soft-dome tweeter with Class D amplification and a crossover at 1.8 kHz. Frequency response is measured at 40 Hz to 25 kHz, with a max SPL of 113 dB. A powerful DSP engine controls driver response, crossover and EQ, and they were designed to be positioned either horizontally or vertically without compromising imaging.

The V2108 reference monitoring system from Quested Limited is intended for near-field applications. It applies an 8-inch woofer and 1-inch dome tweeter to designer Roger Quested’s well-known driver layout, along with the company’s new current-driven, floating drive stage Class-A/B amplification with two channels of 200W to each of the drivers. The compact cabinet delivers LF response down to 40 Hz.

New from RCF USA are the Mytho 6 and Mytho 8 active two-way, near-field reference monitors. These combine an aluminium/magnesium alloy (with high-excursion soft-polymer surround) dome tweeter and either a 6- or 8-inch neodymium woofer in a front-ported, all-aluminum enclosure. Power is via 200- and 100W Class-A/B bi-amplification to the LF and HF drivers with onboard DSP crossover and equalization.

The two-way, active Resolv A6 with round-edged, ported tuned enclosure includes a 6.5-inch woven carbon fiber woofer and 1.25-inch silk-dome tweeter with neodymium magnets, heat-sink and ferro-fluid cooling, along with integrated low-diffraction waveguide. Power is 75 watts and 25 watts; an active crossover uses a multi-pole design for linear response from bottom to top. Frequency response is 40 Hz-30 kHz, and there is a four-position high-frequency lift control. XLR and 1/4-inch balanced inputs, unbalanced RCA inputs.
