            The Montana SPC

Kevin's Comments,

The Montana SPC was the first center channel to show me what a true full range center could do. It is incredibly dynamic and is so evident to your whole A/V experience. It is magically sweet and allows the voice pattern data to be heard as a natural human voice and not shrill or to forward. I use it in my own theater and highly recommend it.  It uses the Scan Speak drivers and matches the SPX, EPS, XP, KAS and WAS models for timber matching.
The best Value, World Class speakers available.

The Montana SPC Center Speaker

PBN just can’t do anything halfway. It would have been a rather routine task to create a center channel from existing technology and design modules at PBN. It would have sounded quite acceptable. But that wasn’t good enough for Noerbaek.

He started from scratch, engineering every square inch of this remarkable speaker. The basic question was: What is a center channel supposed to do? It’s different for home theater than it is for music. In home theater the center channel’s primary duty is to reproduce the actor’s natural voice as it moves to various positions on the screen. With music, the audio track should create the impression that the listener is sitting front row center, yet it shouldn’t overpower the other speakers in the system.

It’s no easy feat to do both well in an audiophile speaker. PBN has done it. The internal engineering, baffle design and speaker aiming are some of the extraordinary accomplishments of the SPC-2. Best of all, this one speaker can perfectly round out a two-channel system by giving it an audio dimension previously unknown to most serious music aficionados.

     For the utmost in sonic realism, a home theater system demands a high-quality center channel. The Montana SPC takes the SPX design into horizontal mode for ease of placement above or below a video monitor or screen. It can also be mounted directly behind a porous screen for incredible directionality. The use of a truly full range speaker like the SPC disproves the belief held by some home cinema experts that the center channel speaker does not need great bass capabilities. The dramatic impact of a film's soundtrack is especially pronounced when the SPC is flanked by a pair of SPX's in a multichannel configuration. Frequency response is 30Hz-22kHz; sensitivity is 91dB; weight is 115 lbs.
