Ask About PMC6-2 XBD


Adding a PMC8-2 SUB unit to a PMC6-2 monitor easily reconfigures them as PMC’s renowned and flexible twin-cabinet format XBD monitor system.

This system combines the PMC6-2’s unrivalled clarity and resolution with an active sub to form a perfectly integrated full-range monitoring system that is ideal for all high-end music production.
In the case of the PMC6-2, configuring it as an XBD system reinforces the bass output of the main speaker’s LF drivers, greatly increasing headroom and extending the bass down to 25Hz, creating a system with a sense of effortless capability.
Configuring the PMC6-2 XBD system is simple; connect the input directly to the PMC6-2, and add an AES3 digital cable to carry the main monitor’s ‘through’ output down to the PMC8-2 SUB. The two cabinets can be connected either to a LAN or directly to each other via their network ports. When you select the dedicated ‘XBD’ mode the DSP seamlessly combines both units into a single, larger-scale monitor. Further detailed configuration can be carried out from the rear-panel controls or using the intuitive SoundAlign™ browser-based software via the LAN connection, where both speakers appear as a single PMC6-2 XBD unit when linked.
