The Montana Master Reference


Kevin's Comments,


The Master Reference is very revealing of the most subtle details. This is a speaker to be careful of their extreem volumes! It is the loudest set of home loudspeakers I have ever installed! All the same quality that we are use to from the Montana models but with incredible ability to play sweet, fast and dynamic! 
The best Value, World Class speakers available.

 

 

 

 

 


The Montana Master Reference

Its seven feet of indisputable acoustical brilliance is capable of unleashing majestic orchestral salvos as well as the most delicate symphonic passages. Its twin 18” auditorium grade sub woofers effortlessly deliver smooth low-end bass while its dual 10”peerless mid woofers flawlessly deliver mid-bass punch to fully complement the world’s finest pair of mid-range drivers and an exemplary tweeter. In total, its seven audiophile speakers are so uniquely harmonized that the musical presence is the most realistic ever reproduced.

Included with each paired speaker set is its own dedicated external PBN subwoofer amplifier. Each speaker cabinet is custom-built, veneered and/or painted to the customer’s specifications. The front baffle is made of select planks of solid maple. Inside each speaker is a virtual labyrinth of scientifically constructed chambers designed for the optimal flow of internal sound waves.

In total, the Master Reference Speaker is seven feet of the finest possible combination of acoustically engineered speakers, unparalleled circuitry and old-world cabinetry. Think of it as a magnificent machine deserving a fine home. The real question is, will it be your home?

Through the last 15 years the large MONTANA models have attained a reputation among music lovers and reviewers as world-class loudspeakers. Still, PBN Audio's R&D Department always pushes boundaries in the never-ending search for musical realism. As a result, the company introduced its all-new flagship loudspeaker model in the MONTANA line-up at the CES 2007, T.H.E. Show, in Las Vegas. Hence the name, the MONTANA Master Reference.

The MONTANA Master Reference are gigantic, heavily braced sealed cabinet and the specially designed high-performance drivers from SEAS and McCauley hints about a truly exceptional combination of sophistication and dynamic capabilities.


Each cabinet features two ea. custom spec 18" McCauley woofers, two ea. 10" mid-bass drivers, two ea. 5,25" mid-range drivers and a highly efficient soft dome wide dispersion tweeter. Except from the two ea. custom modified 18" McCauley woofers per cabinet, all drivers are custom made or modified by SEAS of Norway for PBN Audio only.

The active section includes specially designed PBN OLYMPIA power amplifiers, as well as a PBN OLYMPIA Bass Extension Equalizer. This system pulls extra current when required during extreme bass-heavy passages, which ensures the highest attainable bass definition, control, extension and sonic balance.

The MONTANA Master Reference has a flat frequency response from 15 Hz - 30.000 Hz. Despite of the MONTANA Master Reference's sealed cabinet, the efficiency is 94 dB.
