SE Active Series

PMC’s SE range has its roots in the company’s high-end three-way reference monitors, found in premier studios all over the world. Combining the finest traditions of British cabinet-making and cutting-edge acoustic research and electronics, the SE models achieve new standards in audiophile reproduction and musicality.

In our active SE systems, the loudspeakers are matched with PMC audiophile amplification and active crossovers, custom-tailored to the precise designs and power requirements of the loudspeakers; the amplification is also directly coupled to the drive units for superior control and a more efficient transfer of energy. Each piece of electronics is hand-crafted according to purist analogue principles, ensuring quality, neutrality and transparency; the result is a natural-sounding, lifelike speaker with unmatched headroom, resolution and dynamics.

The active crossovers used with our SE systems also feature in-room tuning controls to allow the speakers to be adjusted to perfectly suit individual tastes and room acoustics; to guarantee optimum performance in situ, they are always tuned by our factory-trained installation engineers.

Another distinguishing feature of our active range, developed especially for its high power handling requirements, is the 34mm tweeter. The highly engineered design delivers HF sound with vastly enhanced detail and wider imaging thanks to its ‘acoustic lens’, which alone took 18 months of development.
