As with any PMC loudspeaker, thanks to its super-consistent dispersion and tonal balance, the PMC8-2 may be simply and seamlessly combined with smaller PMC speakers to create larger multi-channel or immersive systems.

The twin bass drivers are partnered with the same PMC55 mid-range tweeter, DSP system and four channels of 400W Class-D amplification used in the PMC6-2. Again, the speaker is configurable directly via the rear panel or using the browser-based SoundAlign™ software from a computer or tablet.

SOUNDALIGN Smart & Network Equipped

The SoundAlign​​™ web interface gives you an unique and responsive way of controlling and configuring your near-field and mid-field active monitors and their subs. The SoundAlign™ allows you to run large multichannel systems smoother with smart features such as:

Group Filters
Easily manage many speakers

Monitor Selector
View your system and select monitors to adjust

Speaker Controls
Modify any speaker parameter – Level, EQ & more


Manage presets & update firmware

Advanced Transmission Line (ATL™)

Together with the precisely tuned ATL™ cabinet and hexagonal Laminair™ vents, the PMC8-2 delivers phenomenal performance that approaches that of our Main reference monitors, with smooth and consistent bass response down to 25Hz, a revealing mid-range and wide, stable sound-staging. As with the rest of the range, the PMC8-2’s superb definition, fidelity, dynamics and bass accuracy allow mix decisions to be made quickly with complete confidence, and with no listening fatigue even after long sessions.

PMC8-2s can be upgraded through the addition of a PMC8-2 SUB to create an XBD system, enhancing the system’s bass headroom by 6dB. Dedicated short and taller floor-stands are available for the PMC8-2 and PMC8-2 XBD systems which position them on the ideal listening axis.
