Twenty.C - Further Details

At the forthcoming Sound & Vision Show in Bristol on 24-26 February, PMC will be unveiling the new twenty.C dedicated centre channel loudspeaker. With styling and performance to complement the recently launched twenty series speakers, the twenty.C enables home theatre enthusiasts to share in all the benefits of PMC�s latest drive unit and ATL? innovations, to enhance their enjoyment of movie soundtracks significantly. The twenty.C centre channel has been conceived in response to the phenomenal reception that the twenty series received when it was launched at the company�s 20th anniversary conference in September 2011. The most common request since then from the company�s distributors, retailers and end users has been for a centre channel to match the four strong line up of the twenty series. Using identical twenty series M13 5�� drive units as the twenty.21 stand mount and twenty.23 floorstanding models, the twenty.C is voiced to match the speakers with which it will be partnered. The bass/mid drive units, developed by PMC, have lightweight and stiff paper cones, with a matt finish doping, and are built into cast alloy chassis to provide a rigid and stable environment and offer high sensitivity and low colouration. Twin drivers flank the new SONOLEX? fabric dome tweeter, developed in conjunction with SEAS� of Norway. This all new tweeter provides a phenomenal off-axis response thanks to the new dispersion grille; a technology previously used on the company�s flagship studio monitors and more recently in the fact� series. The addition of a resonance chamber enables the crossover point to be lowered to just 1.8kHz, which further enhances the dispersion characteristics of the speakers. The twenty series saw the development of an entirely new set of components; including drive units, crossovers, binding posts, cabinets, plinths and spikes. No components used in the twenty series feature in any other PMC loudspeaker and the major elements have been designed exclusively for the new models. These components have been carried over into the twenty.C centre channel in order to ensure absolute coherence with the front left and right and rear channel speakers in a complete twenty series home theatre set up. As with all PMC loudspeakers, the twenty.C features the company�s patented Advanced Transmission Line (ATL?) technology. The 18mm Medite HDF cabinet construction and design, with its 5? sloping front and rear baffles, are inherently high in rigidity and low in resonance, which serves to reduce cabinet induced distortions significantly and enhance the performance of the ATL as well as offering dynamic, contemporary aesthetics. Further developments of the ATL technology have enabled the engineers to produce a much deeper bass than would generally be possible in a cabinet of this size. And, crucially, the effectiveness of the ATL greatly enhances the mid-range clarity that is so important in the performance of a centre channel speaker, which can be handling up to 70% of the movie soundtrack and dialogue.
