The PMC8-2 SUB is a larger subwoofer for full-bandwidth, high-resolution reference monitoring in the most demanding professional environments.
The PMC 8-2 SUB is a true low-frequency monitor like the PMC8 SUB and offering the same DSP engine and seamless integration with surround and immersive systems, the PMC8-2 SUB betters the spec of its smaller sibling, offering higher maximum SPL output down to 25Hz.
With the same dimensions as the PMC8-2 midfield monitor, the PMC8-2 SUB’s twin eight-inch bass drivers are powered by independent 400W Class-D amplifiers. The same configuration options are available as on the PMC8 SUB, likewise accessible on the speaker’s rear panel or by using the browser-based SoundAlign™ software via a LAN-connected tablet, smartphone or computer.
The PMC8-2 SUB can be used as a standalone subwoofer for multichannel and immersive sound systems, or as an XBD cabinet with either PMC6-2 or PMC8-2 s, creating a system of awesome power and dynamic range. The sub is available in either left- or right-handed cabinet versions (PMC8-2 SUB-L or PMC8-2 SUB-R), to allow placement of the bass drivers on the outside edges of a stereo array, matching the arrangement of the main monitors.
