TransAudio Group launches cost-effective ATC SCM11 studio monitors

TransAudio Group has made available the ATC SCM11 two-way passive speaker. The new monitor incorporates ATC's constrained-layer damping (CLD) technology, which reduces third-harmonic distortion between 100Hz and 3kHz, resulting in an extended, resonance-free axial frequency response, improved off-axis frequency response, and a significant increase in loudspeaker power response.

The new CLD technology is incorporated in the 5.9in mid/low-frequency driver with 1.77in integral soft dome. The driver features a precision undercut bass pole, hand-wound precision flat wire coil, and a massive optimized motor assembly. The driver is paired with a new soft dome 0.98in neodymium high-frequency unit featuring a precision-alloy ATC waveguide.

The brainchild of ATC engineer Ben Lilly, CLD technology enables extended on-axis frequency response with excellent off-axis response. Lilly's innovation was to sandwich a constrained damping layer between two lightweight driver cones, resulting in less acoustic distortion by dissipating unwanted vibration energy as frictional heat.

The frequency response of the SCM11 is 56Hz-22kHz (-6dB), with a sensitivity of 85dB (1W at 1m) and a maximum SPL of 108dB. The recommended power amplifier rating is 50W-300W. The compact cabinets are finished in flat black ash and measure less than 15in x 8.3in x 10in, weighing in at just 18.7lbs.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
