In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, ATC has released of an exclusive new active stand mount loudspeaker, the SCM20ASL Limited Edition.

Limited to just 150 pairs, the 2-way active stand-mount design is finished in high gloss lacquer in the ATC company dark blue. Complementing the cabinet, the front baffle is hand-upholstered in royal blue full-grain napa leather by German leather specialists Eissmann. The exterior alloy components feature a silver anodised finish in striking contrast to the blue lacquer and leather of the cabinet and baffle.

The SCM20ASL Limited Edition utilises in-house loudspeaker drive units matched on-board active amplification. The new model integrates a 2-way active system, previously only available in a floor standing model, into a smaller stand-mount cabinet. The SCM20ASL Limited Edition features ATC’s proprietary 150mm ‘Super Linear’ Mid/Bass driver paired with a 25mm ‘S-Spec’ dual-suspension tweeter.

The bass driver operates in a 20-litre sealed cabinet and power is provided by on-board class A/B MOSFET power amplifiers, capable of delivering 200W and 50W continuous power to the bass and HF drivers respectively. The loudspeaker crossovers are active, analogue 2nd order Linkwitz-Riley and an all-pass filter is included to optimise the phase response through the crossover region, resulting in far improved tonal balance and imaging.

Input to the loudspeaker is via balanced XLR, located on the rear panel and there are user controls for input sensitivity and low frequency shelf cut/boost. The input sensitivity control allows the user to tailor the input gain to suit their source/pre-amplifier combination, said to result in a more consistent performance.

A low frequency shelf control gives integrators the option to subtly adjust the bass response to suit their room and/or their personal taste. The speaker is supplied with a removable grille, wrapped in dark blue acoustically transparent cloth.

To support the SCM20ASL Limited Edition, a limited run of 20 of ATC’s new 12” active subwoofer, the C4 Sub Mk2 Limited Edition, has been produced. These limited edition subs feature a matching gloss blue cabinet, leather upholstered baffle and silver anodised amp hardware.

The SCM20ASL Limited Edition retail for £10,500, while the C4 Sub Mk2 Limited Edition subwoofer is priced at £7,495.
