ATC Loudspeaker Technology is celebrating the 70th birthday of its founder and Managing Director Billy Woodman with a ‘Signature’ version of a landmark ATC design. Based on the SCM10 mini monitor from 1990, the Signature Edition SCM10SE is an “immaculate reworking of the breakthrough model” say the company.
Presented in a lustrous ATC blue piano finish, the SCM10SE is enhanced with an anodised silver aluminium tweeter wave guide, complementary silver mid/bass driver surround and a fine grain blue leather baffle, hand-finished by Eissmann, a leading supplier of interior trims for many of the world’s most desirable car brands including Aston Martin, Bugatti, Lamborghini and McLaren.
The SCM10SE’s proprietary drivers and crossovers are wholly conceived and hand-built at ATC’s UK development and production facility at Stroud, Gloucestershire. The original SCM10’s soft dome tweeter has been replaced with a recently developed SH25-76S ‘S-Spec’ 25mm dual-suspension design, and its SB45-125SC 125mm mid/bass unit with a latest version, complete with integral soft dome. The system’s crossover is re-designed for the new drive units and uses ATC’s hand-wound air-cored inductors and polypropylene capacitors throughout.
Appropriately the SCM10SE is limited to a production run of just seventy pairs, each supplied with an exclusive owner’s guide relating the story of Billy Woodman’s career from his formative engineering in Australia to the seminal, ethos-building work at Goodmans in the UK and culminating in the founding and flourishing of his Company.
