The BB5 XBD Active is a true no-compromise design and the world’s leading reference loudspeaker. This flagship model of the PMC range features PMC’s 34mm high-frequency driver, PMC’s 75mm mid-range dome driver and two 15-inch radial bass units in twin ATL™ (Advanced Transmission Line) cabinets, producing the ultimate low-distortion response and audio window for any professional. The active electronics have resulted from collaboration between Bryston and PMC, giving unrivalled quality and reliability. BB5 offers higher SPLs and a frequency range that extends lower than any other monitor available — down to 17Hz. It has the capacity to reproduce the full scale and dynamics of a live recording without compression or distortion.


The BB5 XBD’s phenomenal bass extension is provided by PMC’s ATL™ technology supplying ample low frequency headroom without the additional effects of soffit mounting, therefore allowing for both a flexible free a standing arrangement or if needs be, a well built soffit.


As with all PMC products there are dedicated centre channels and sub woofers. Though with its dedicated .1 effects channel input and phenomenal the bass performance it negates the need for an additional .1 effects monitor.


You can find the BB5 XBD-A in the following studios: Athens Concert Hall, BBC Maida Vale, 2,3 & 4, BBC Hippodrome. Prince's personal studio and Metropolis studios - london.
