With the explosion of immersive audio systems, studios of all sizes need to implement multichannel monitoring, from 5.1 to 7.1.4 and beyond. Luckily, iLoud MTM offers powerful features that make it the ideal multichannel partner.
iLoud MTM’s built-in ARC self-calibration mean it adjusts in seconds to any placement, including ceiling-mounting, correcting their output to ensure the most precise, balanced sound from every position, without struggling with placement and spacing.
iLoud MTM is ideal for multichannel installations being linear phase and having a point-source emission that’s very accurate at any distance. This minimizes the inaccuracies conventional speakers introduce in the imaging, which is critical for multichannel and immersive setups.
iLoud MTM’s midwoofer-tweeter-midwoofer design boasts dramatically more controlled vertical dispersion than typical designs. This minimizes the speakers’ interaction with room acoustics (and each other), making it ideal for rooms not custom-tuned for surround audio.
Just as importantly, iLoud MTM makes setting up a multichannel rig easy! At 30 – 50% smaller and lighter than comparable studio monitors, you’ll find setup a breeze in any size room.
iLoud MTM has a deep low-frequency extension for its size. Being a compact speaker, using its lowest cutoff point requires reducing the maximum SPL. In immersive setups where that lower cutoff isn’t needed and speakers are at a greater distance from the mixing position, this isn’t ideal.
Proper bass management can help by letting the main and surround speakers focus on the frequency range they do best and letting the subwoofers handle the low-frequency range.
Adding a standard 80 Hz (LFE) setting to MTM allows for quick integration with subwoofers at the frequency and slope that are considered the standard when doing bass management in multichannel or immersive setups.
