The first two models of PMC’s all new custom installation loudspeakers, the ci140 and ci140sub, were unveiled at CEDIA Expo, with the ci30, ci45, ci90slim, and ci65 to follow in Q1 2020. The ci Series incorporate the proprietary PMC technologies and audio quality from its audiophile speakers and studio monitors into high-performance on-wall and in-wall custom installation loudspeakers.
All are designed with a shallow depth for wall mounting and all models, apart from the ci140 and ci140sub, are also designed to be used in-wall. An optional mounting sleeve fits around the cabinets of the ci30, ci45, ci90slim, and ci65 to conceal the in-wall mounting system and create an on-wall model. The use of one product for both in-wall and on-wall reduces the number of models that need to be stocked and gives the installer greater flexibility with mounting options.
The ci30, ci45, ci90slim, and ci65 are fitted with PMC’s Qikfire spring-loaded mounting system, which, with a twist of a screwdriver, mounts the loudspeaker securely and quickly and permits post installation micro adjustment. Removal is just as easy as installation, with a twist. The on-wall mounting of each model is a very simple process using the optional interlocking wall bracket, which is designed to also offer pin-point level adjustment.
The drive units are developed from PMC’s in-depth knowledge of driver design and comprise the LT woofer and the longer throw and higher power handling version, the LTx, with their 130mm (5.25-inch) natural fiber cones, the 50mm (2-inch) dome midrange, and a 27mm (1.1-inch) dome tweeter. The cabinets all feature PMC’s Advance Transmission Line (ATL) bass loading technology and Laminair vents, plus a sophisticated, hand-built, precision crossover.
All ci series cabinets are enclosed at the rear, ensuring that sound leakage to adjoining rooms is kept to a minimum. All speakers are supplied in a black finish, with square perforated bezel-less metal grilles in black or white.
