"Best loudspeaker £2000+, Top of the class"
With the phenomenal benefits of PMC’s ATL (Advanced Transmission Line) technology, the fact.8 floor-standing model produces the commanding power and scale that is capable of filling both medium and larger rooms with awe-inspiring dynamic sound.
With its compliment of twin fact bass drivers and ultra high resolution fact tweeter, they project an all encompassing, vivid sonic picture that can be experienced by all.
The world’s leading professionals rely on the accuracy of PMC’s designs everyday to create much of the music and sound you hear. You can rest assured that whatyou hear from a PMC speaker is identical to the version approved by the artist themselves.
The purpose of a crossover is to divide the incoming signal from an amplifier into the frequencies best suited foreach of the drive units within a loudspeaker, a key design element that demands the utmost precision.
All fact® designs feature extremely accurate and sophisticated crossovers that incorporated steep, 24dB per octave filters. Their foundation is a military-grade glass-fibre board, cut in the signature fact® “lozenge” shape, upon which ultra-thick, pure copper tracks are aligned to optimise unrestricted current delivery.
Only components that have passed extensive comparative listening tests were selected, and even their mounting orientation was carefully evaluated to eradicate any electromagnetic interaction that could potentially impair signal transmission.
This holistic approach, where all design elements are treated with the same significance, is a signature of the fact®’s design excellence. This guarantees supreme power handling and ultra-low distortion, both of which play a major role in the exceptional clarity and wide, three-dimensional soundstage to be enjoyed across a wide listening area.
When designing the fact® crossover, the value of the capacitors was first calculated, and then the best-sounding example - chosen from many different manufacturers - was selected.
Upon delivery, each capacitor is tested to ensure it matches the required specifications and a record of the measurement results are kept. Pairs of capacitors with identical specifications are used in each pair of loudspeakers, ensuring that their characteristics are indistinguishable. The capacitors are then soldered, bonded and anchored by hand onto the military-grade crossover circuit board, which is also individually inspected and tested.
The crossover can then be considered for installation, but only after its performance characteristics are approved following both critical listening tests and exacting computerised measurements. But it’s not just capacitors and crossovers; every single component of PMC’s fact® loudspeakers is subject to the same rigorous test procedures, ensuring that each loudspeaker is a precise replica of our reference.
For almost twenty years, PMC has been manufacturing drive units for the most analytical and critical professional clients, for whom quality and reliability are of paramount importance. fact® raises the bar yet further, an intensive research and design process resulting in an even higher standard of performance.
Through the standardisation of both tweeter and bass units, every fact® model is not only visually consistent,but also shares the same acoustic signature, making the range ideal for high-end surround and multi-room installations where different models can be chosen for specific locations and roles.
Many of the lightest, strongest and most durable substances known to science are naturally-occurring, honed over countless millennia, and it was from this vast resource that PMC selected materials to compliment the ultra high-tech, modern technologies incorporated into our latest drive units. The result of this unique combination is a sound that is cutting-edge, uncoloured and natural.
They are extremely detailed and sound natural - As if the musicians are with you in the room
The sound they produce covers a massive area, so wherever you sit you still hear everything
You can listen at low level and still hear bass - Ideal for low level or late night listening Reliability - all the components are tried and tested in the professional world
They are efficient and therefore can be driven by the vast majority of good quality amplifiers
Ideal for surround
They all have an identical tonal balance and can be mixed and matched to create the ultimate surround sound system
They sound superb in a vast array of rooms, large and small
They are made in England by hand, by nice people who care, and love audio
