PMC Active Twenty5 23i Active Floorstanding Speakers

PMC Active Twenty5 23i Floorstanding Speakers

Already PMC's best-selling model in passive form, the Active 23i adds an active crossover and 2x100W amplification in each speaker to create an elegant floor-standing design even more capable of filling medium-sized rooms with transparent, authentic dynamics and effortlessly extended bass. With the choice of finishes shared across the Active twenty5i range, it blends unobtrusively into any room: reviewer Chris Kelly said of the passive 23i, ‘Pair them with a high-quality amplifier and a good source and you will never regret your purchase,’ and that’s just what we’ve done with the Active 23i, building in the amplification for a ‘just add source’ music solution.

The Active twenty5i series, combined with a preamplifier or any streamer with a volume control, will create a neat, stylish, world-class music system.

  • Greater detail & more natural
  • A full, rich sound at any volume level
  • Deeper bass from a smaller cabinet

The source of PMC’s legendary natural, realistic sound is the Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) bass-loading technology, professionally proven all around the world.

ATL uses energy generated by the bass unit in a much more intelligent, efficient way than speaker designs based on ported or sealed boxes.

PMC introduces an elegantly simple solution for any music lover – the Active twenty5i series. With optimised amplification built into every speaker, all you need is a preamplifier or streamer with an output volume control to create a world-class music system.

PMC are always striving for a closer connection with the music through greater transparency, purity and resolution. For over 30 years, they have been applying this thinking in the professional world through active speakers, with precision analogue crossovers feeding dedicated amplification optimised for each drive unit.

With the new Active twenty5i series, they are bringing this approach to the best-selling twenty5i speaker series, with integrated electronics and amplification enabling superb performance and a fuss-free system without needing a separate power amplifier or integrated amp. Add a preamp or streaming device, and you have a complete high-resolution system without the clutter of multiple hi-fi components.

In the Active twenty5i series, each driver is directly coupled to an ideally matched 100W power amplifier, able to control the driver with a vice-like grip. Ahead of the power amps, a meticulously modelled analogue crossover splits the incoming signal, so each amplifier is only handling the frequencies appropriate to the driver it's powering, guaranteeing ideal driver integration and a staggeringly pure, natural, and free-breathing sound.

It's an elegantly simple solution for any music lover, reinventing the twenty5i speakers with even greater resolution and control and bringing you even closer to the music.
