ATC Loudspeakers SCM12 Pro 2-Way Compact Passive Studio Monitor Speakers (Pair)
The SCM12 Pro proffers ATC’s acclaimed performance at a lower price point without compromising component quality and achieves this in a more compact, installation-friendly footprint ideally suited to nearfield monitoring as well as multichannel music and post-production applications.
The ATC Loudspeakers
SCM12 PRO is a passive professional near field monitor that also incorporates ATC's proprietary Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) bass/mid driver and ATC’s SH25-76 tweeter. Sharing technology with the renowned ATC Soft Dome midrange unit the new tweeter employs a unique dual suspension system suppressing diaphragm rocking modes and eliminating the need for ferrofluid.
Manufactured in-house to exacting tolerances ATC’s drive units are legendary for their many design innovations. Hand-wound voice coils use only high density edge wound flat OFHC ribbon copper wire and operate in precision magnetic gaps. Front and rear venting not only reduces air flow noise but also increases power handling capacity and, therefore, long term reliability. Massive magnet motor assemblies offer no-compromise optimisation for each voice coil diameter.
Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) is a drive unit diaphragm technology from ATC that represents another advance in performance and one that transfers directly to system performance and the reproduction of music.
The enhanced damping performance of this technology brings significant improvements to bass/mid drive units by reducing harmonic distortion in the critical midrange, improving magnitude linearity (frequency response) and also dispersion (behaving like a smaller drive unit off axis). These features have been incorporated into the SB50-150CLD bass/mid driver and integrated into the new SCM12 PRO.
SCM12 Pro Features
- Compact, high performance 2-way studio monitor utilizing ATC's proprietary Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) bass/mid driver. CLD technology employs a multi-layered composite cone with a central damping layer that effectively reduces the effects of cone break up. The result is a drive unit capable of delivering exception clarity, even at high drive levels.
- The unique dual suspension topology of ATC’s SH25-76 tweeter ensures pistonic motion of the voice coil former without resorting to the use of Ferrofluid, ensuring a more consistent performance over extended periods of time.
- Ideally suited to: Critical near-field listening applications in all control rooms; LCR and surround monitoring in small-to-medium control rooms.
About ATC Loudspeakers
ATC was founded in London in 1974 by Australian emigre Bill Woodman, who still heads the company today. An enthusiastic pianist and engineer he was naturally drawn to loudspeaker design and after a period working at Goodmans, where many of the names that went on to found British loudspeaker companies began their careers, he struck out on his own.The premise on which ATC began is a simple one, and one that in many respects is still true today: hi-fi loudspeakers tend to be detailed and accurate but of limited dynamic range, while professional monitor speakers tend to express the opposite character. ATC products were designed from the outset to offer the best of both. It’s an easy concept to describe, but surprisingly difficult to engineer
Through ATC’s commitment to multi-channel mastering and its direct involvement with leading players in the professional audio industry including Sony Music and Telarc, ATC’s products are installed at some of the world’s most prestigious multi-channel studios and auditoria. Where ever the best is required you will find ATC.
