ATC has announced the SCM12i Pro passive monitor, an adaptation of its SCM12 Pro compact, high-performance, two-way passive studio monitor released in 2016.

ATC SCM12i Pro Intended for simple installation into recording, postproduction, broadcast, and film studios, the SCM12i is aimed at facilities moving into immersive audio working such as Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D, or upgrading an existing monitor system.

Weighing in at 15kg/33lbs per cabinet, the SCM12i Pro provides 80Hz-16kHz (±2dB) response with dispersion of ±80° coherent horizontal and ±10° coherent vertical, and a maximum continuous SPL of 108dB (per pair @ 1m). To facilitate simple installation, the cabinet features mounting points compatible with popular wall/ceiling brackets, such as those offered by Adaptive Technologies Group and König & Meyer (K&M).

The SCM12i Pro is designed around the same philosophy as ATC’s two- and three-way active monitor loudspeakers, and also employs driver components and technology found in those larger models, resulting in consistency across the product range. The tweeter is a 25mm/1-inch soft dome designed around ATC’s dual-suspension technology – two suspensions offering greater control of the voice coil and dome motion especially at high sound pressure levels.

Mid/bass reproduction is handled by ATC’s 150mm/six-inch proprietary CLD drive unit. Using a 45mm/1.75-inch diameter voice coil, and employing an FEA (Finite Element Analysis) optimised high-energy symmetric gap motor system, the driver is capable of high dynamic range with minimal power compression. Cone construction uses Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) – multiple laminated fabric cones forming a stiff, light and well-damped structure for smooth on- and off-axis response. Capacitors are all 250Vdc metallised polypropylene and all the inductors are air-cored types for minimal signal distortion. Additionally, all of the inductors are very high-purity copper while large- gauge wire is used for the bass components to minimise signal losses.

The SCM12i Pro retails in for £1,604(plus VAT) per pair.
