PMC QB1 XBD-A Studio Monitor PMC has released the QB1 XBD-A studio monitor, a new addition to the QB1-A active reference monitor range. The QB1 XBD-A monitors are larger than anything the company has manufactured before and to create them, PMC re-engineered its flagship QB1-A active main studio monitor. For this new ver- sion, PMC has added a further cabinet (the XBD) per channel. This contains four identical piston drivers, each driven by four 1,000-W independent class D power amplifiers for a total of 8,825 W of clean power per channel. The latest iteration of the company’s Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) bass-loading technology ensures a faithful low-frequency response down to 20 Hz while onboard DSP provides driver unit optimisation, EQ, and more sophisticated crossover networks. The QB1-XBD-A is designed to offer ultra-low distortion, improved detail, and incomparable dynamics and transience throughout the entire bandwidth.
