LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: TransAudio Group, the U.S. distributor for ATC (Acoustic Transducer Company) audio reference speakers, is now shipping the U.K. manufacturer’s first ever compact active three-way studio control monitor – the SCM25A Pro. Designed for positioning on a meter bridge, or rack-mountable for broadcast applications, the ATC SCM25A Pro offers very high-performance in the most compact possible form factor.

The drive units all use large diameter, under-hung voice coils for excellent dynamic range and linearity. The mid-range is ATCs world-renowned soft dome and the bass driver is a hand-built, in-house, using a carbon-paper cone with high excursion capability. On-board amplification features the company’s class A/B Mosfet output stage delivering 150W to the bass driver, 60W to the mid and 25W to the high frequency driver. All three stages are fed by 4th order critically damped crossover filters with phase compensation. The unit’s ported enclosure measures 10.4 inches (264 mm) (H) x 16.9 inches (430 mm) (W) x 16 inches (408 mm) (D). more
