ATC marks 50th anniversary with SCM20ASL Limited Edition

ATC is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the release of an exclusive new active standmount loudspeaker, the SCM20ASL Limited Edition. It’s finished in a high-gloss lacquer in ATC’s trademark dark blue and, 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 to contrast with the cabinet and baffle.

The SCM20ASL Limited Edition integrates a two-way active system, previously only available in a floorstanding model, into a smaller standmount cabinet. It 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 a claimed 200W and 50W continuous power to the bass and HF drivers respectively. The loudspeaker crossovers are active, analogue second order Linkwitz-Riley and an all-pass filter is included to optimise the phase response through the crossover region, which the company says results in far improved tonal balance and imaging.

Inputs are via balanced XLR, located on the rear panel and there are user controls for sensitivity and low-frequency shelf cut/boost. The input sensitivity control allows the user to tailor the input gain to suit their source/preamplifier combination. The low-frequency shelf control gives the user the option to adjust the bass response to suit their room and/or 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 12in active subwoofer, the C4 Sub Mk2 Limited Edition, has been produced. These feature a matching gloss blue cabinet, leather upholstered baffle and silver anodised amp hardware.

The SCM20ASL Limited Edition is priced at £10,500 per pair and there are only 150 available. The C4 Sub Mk2 Limited Edition subwoofer will set you back £7,500.
