ATC SCM45A Pro
ATC made history with their innovative SCM Series, which were the first studio monitors to integrate a custom-designed 3” mid-range driver for added clarity in the midrange. The ATC SCM45A Pro also features two 6” bass drivers, a unique 1” dual-suspension tweeter, and three dedicated amps to accurately recreate audio signals at high levels with minimal distortion.
The SCM45A Pro is a mid-sized high-performance studio monitor featuring a 1″ dual-suspension ’S-Spec’ tweeter, a hand-built 3” soft dome mid driver, and two hand-built 7˝ carbon-paper cone bass drivers. The built-in discrete MOSFET class A/B tri-amp feature 150 W, 60 W and 25 W of continuous power output for high-output performance. Designed specifically for critical near-field listening, LCR surround monitoring, and full surround channel support, the SCM45A Pros are perfect for mixing music or film.
Unlike most studio monitors, the SCM Series monitors aren’t going to make your music sound better—they’re going to point out every little flaw in your mix, and that’s the point. Hi-fi speakers are great for listening to records, but when you’re actually making records you need a neutral monitor that reveals as much information as possible.
Speakers with hyped lows and highs cause engineers to create inverse mixes that are weak and dull. Because SCM Series monitors offer a flat, neutral frequency response, you can make more informed decisions and create better mixes faster.
Most two-way speakers place the crossover frequency between 1.5 kHz and 2 kHz which often creates an unbalanced midrange, resulting in a lack of clarity. ATC SCM Series monitors feature a custom 3” driver that focuses on 380 Hz - 3.5 kHz, allowing you to monitor your midrange with more accuracy.
The ATC SCM Series offers high-performance in the most compact form factor possible. While SCM Series monitors are right at home sitting on the meter bridge in a recording studio, they’re equally at home in many other settings, such as post-production houses or rack-mounted in broadcast studios.
