PMC is a UK based, world-leading manufacturer of professional monitor and audiophile speaker systems.
PMC designs feature its uniquely engineered Advanced Transmission Line technology (ATL), which provides, high resolution, wide bandwidth signal response across the complete product range. Proprietary drive units, electronics and cabinet engineering, provide unrivalled tonal accuracy, clarity and dynamic range throughout a range of designs, extending from the world's smallest TL design, the DB1+, to large scale active control room monitoring systems such as the flagship BB5-XBD Active.
PMC monitor systems are in service with most of the world's premiere music and film sound recording studios, broadcast companies, post production and audio mastering facilities.
Taking the lid off
The main driver is placed at one end of the TL, which is heavily damped with absorbent acoustic material. The most predictable and accurate absorber is a highly specified foam material that took a vast amount of R&D to derive the correct formula of profile, pore size and density of the polymer. The foam, probably the least visually dramatic of the components is tremendously important. It has to absorb all the upper bass frequencies and allow the lower frequencies to exit the vent at the far end of the line in phase with the main driver. It must also be exactly specified to ensure a consistent and balanced backpressure on the driver by interfacing smoothly with the column of air within the line. With too higher damping, the driver cannot move freely enough, and conversely too little damping produces a lack of control and the result is a LF response similar to that of a regular ported design.
