LAS VEGAS — TransAudio Group, the U.S. distributor for ATC, has introduced ATC SCM12i compact monitor for permanent installations.
A follow-up to the passive SCM12 Pro, launched two years ago, the new monitor uses the same two-way topology and driver technology but places it within a cabinet that is purpose-built for permanent installation in recording and post studios. The new monitor’s mounting points are compatible popular mounting strategies and standardizations, including those offered by Adaptive Technologies Group and König & Meyer (K&M).
Brad Lunde, founder and president of TransAudio Group, noted, “The ATC SCM12 Pro is a popular choice for nearfields in small spaces or on tight budgets – or as surrounds in larger studios. Either way, they’re small enough (roughly 16” x 9” x 9”) to warrant permanent installation, but, like most near field monitors, the SCM12 Pro lacks the mounting points of ‘installation-ready’ loudspeakers. Responding to requests from its customers, ATC has produced the SCM12i, which includes those mounting points.”
Like the SCM12 Pro, the ATC SCM12i uses the same hand-built drivers found in other ATC models, and sports a one-inch dual suspension Soft Dome tweeter. An ATC six-inch Constrained Layer Damping woofer handles mid- and low-frequency content with proprietary technology.
The monitor offers a frequency response from 80 Hz to 16 kHz ± 2dB, ±80° coherent horizontal and ±10° coherent vertical dispersion, and 108 dB continuous SPL per pair at 1m. The SCM12i Pro is expected to begin shipping by the end of 2018.
