The PM-8 is RBH’s first powered studio monitor. Most traditional studio monitors are basic; they have a simple amplifier and a fixed passive crossover which limits the functionality of the speaker; either near or far field, but typically not both. The PM-8 is different. The PM-8 is built on the principle that powered studio monitors should be adaptable for the size of the studio, and for near or far field use. Removing the use restriction, the PM-8 can be used in a variety of circumstances, each with impeccable results.
At the heart of the PM-8 are RBH’s Signature Series drivers: for bass and midrange, an 8-inch aluminum cone mid/woofer (also used in our award winning flagship SVTR tower) and for treble, an AMT (Air Motion Transformer) tweeter. This proprietary duo is powered by a specialized Continue reading…
dual channel class D amplifier supplying 150 Watts to the tweeter and 250 Watts to the woofer. The on-board Digital Signal Processor (DSP) features a Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter to enhance phase correction of the speaker's response, and also doubles as an active crossover network. Active crossover networks provide extreme flexibility and eliminate traditional, power-robbing passive components.
The PM-8’s amplifier has level and preset DSP selection controls as well as an XLR balanced input and throughput; also included is an RCA to XLR connector for convenience with unbalanced connections. The DSP presets allow the speaker to be optimized for near-field and far-field use. Unlike other powered studio monitors, the PM-8's audio signal is processed fully in the digital domain, and converted back to analog only at the final output stage, keeping the fidelity of the audio signal as pure as possible.
The PM-8 is available with or without elegant side accent panels made of high-density composite materials in an array of colors. These panels help to eliminate cabinet vibrations, further enhancing the PM-8’s performance and premium sound quality.
* Warranty period: 5 years on the cabinet and woofers, and 1 year on the amplifier.
