PMC will unveil its latest studio monitoring system on May 22, 2010, at the AES convention in London. Similar to the industry-standard BB5 XBD-A but lighter and more affordable, and intended for high-end reference monitoring and mastering applications, PMC’s new IB2S XBD-A monitor comprises two DSP-controlled, Class-D powered cabinets fitted with PMC's ATL (Advanced Transmission Line) technology: a three-way master and a slave XBD cabinet with an extra bass driver.

Each channel employs two of the 10-inch piston bass drivers from the renowned IB1S and IB2S speakers, together with PMC’s hand-built 75mm midrange fabric dome driver and the 34mm soft-dome tweeter from the BB5 XBD-A. Each active master cabinet offers 960 watts of power (200W each from the HF and midrange drivers, 560W from the LF driver), while the slave XBD cabinets contribute a further 560W, making for 1,520W per channel of ultra low-distortion precision monitoring all the way down to below 20 Hz.

Controllable via an RJ45 remote, with user-adjustable HF and LF shelving filters, per-channel ±8dB input level trims, analog input sensitivity from +4dB to +20dB and an AES3 digital input as standard, the PMC IB2S XBD-A is scheduled to ship this summer.
