The PMC8 SUB is a true low-frequency reference monitor which extends the bass response of your speaker system, imparting more of our signature ultra-clean, ultra-fast low end to any setup.
The PMC8 SUB can be used as a compact stand-alone subwoofer within conventional multichannel systems, or as an XBD cabinet, creating a full-range PMC6 XBD midfield monitor. When used in this way, the dedicated ‘XBD’ DSP mode marries the speakers and sub unit together, creating a coherent full-range system. Our subs are also perfectly suited to use in multi-channel and immersive systems, as our ATL™ bass-loading technology provides a gentler low-order LF roll-off than conventional ported cabinets, allowing a smoother, seamless integration between the height and surround channels and the sub.
Featuring one custom eight-inch long-throw bass-driver, the PMC8 SUB is powered by a single 300W Class-D amplifier and controlled by the same powerful DSP engine as our other active models. DSP facilities include sophisticated room boundary equalisation options, parametric EQ, time delay, phase inversion, and the unique XBD mode, all configured via the loudspeaker’s rear panel or the browser-based SoundAlign™ software.
