ATC Presents New SCM45A Active 3-Way Reference Monitors

Incorporates new proprietary dual-suspension tweeter for increased resolution in the top-end

ATC has introduced the new SCM45A reference studio monitor, offering a mid-size 3-way design that can be used in near- or mid-field positions, as well as high output and extended low frequency for its size. It’s available in the U.S. from TransAudio Group.

The SCM45A is a completely new design that shares many features with the SCM25A. It’s an active design with highly linear response across the critical mid-range in addition to the rest of the audible range. 

In contrast to the SCM25A, the new SCM45A has a second woofer for deeper bass response and increased SPL capability, as well as ATC’s new proprietary dual-suspension tweeter for increased resolution in the top-end.

In addition, the SCM45A is physically symmetrical (not mirror imaged) and sized for placement on a meter bridge, and thus can be utilized as a center loudspeaker between other SCM45A or ATC SCM50ASLs.

“Apart from the strategic fit of the SCM45A within the ATC product line, I must add that this new reference monitor offers stunning performance,” says Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group. “Price-wise, the SCM45A sits between the smaller SCM25A and the larger SCM50ASL. It includes ATC’s new tweeter and dual woofers, which improve both top-end and low-end performance. Reports trickling in from beta users suggest that the SCM45A’s transparency and feature set will make it a perfect fit in a variety of situations, from dedicated near-fields to larger multi-channel systems. There is every reason to believe it will be as popular as the SCM25A, and maybe even more so.”

The SCM45A uses ATC’s new 1-inch dual-suspension “super” tweeter, the first to be designed and built by the company and the result of six years of research and design by managing director Billy Woodman and R&D engineer Richard Newman. The mid-range driver is ATC’s hand-built 3-inch soft dome and two 6.5-inch bass drivers that deal with the lower frequencies.

All of the drive units are powered by ATC’s proprietary active amp pack, a 3-channel discrete MOSFET class A/B design with 150/60/25 for the bass/mid/HF, respectively.

ATC SCM45A monitors will be in stock and ready to ship February 1, 2015 at a U.S. MAP of $11,490.
