Hi

New to posting on the forums. I really can't wait for these bad boys.

Better sell my 40s and two ATC amps to fund them

Nope,

Judging by pics I've seen it appears that the (PRO) 25's are using the VIFA D26NC-55-06 for HF.

Looks like the new 40's (active and passive) are sporting the new ATC SH25-76.

You could be right about the amps though.

Either way it's still a LOT of dough for the active 40's as you are missing out on a SL Bass driver and 'S' version of the Dome.

Also LESS wattage but I guess that everything must be offset to some degree by improved electronics and cabinet design.

Am wondering how well it will sell as it seems too expensive for what you get.

If you HAVE that kind of dough you would just try to find a bit more and shoot for 50's wouldn't you??

If you HAVEN'T got that kind of dough then all of the sudden the passives look at lot more affordable!!!


Anyways......... I LOVE ATC and hope ALL their latest stuff sounds great and keeps them in business for ANOTHER 40 years at least!!!!


Cheers,

JohnL

I bought a pair of passive 40's a few months ago. Going in UK pricing I assume that the active version will be around twice the price which would put them way out of reach of my budget.

Come John. I am right about the amps and about two of the three drivers being, and I quote, similar. I think I didn't deserve "nope", I deserved "yep"!

Cheers,

Thank you, appreciated!

The prices have gone up quite a bit across the board in recent years, aside from the VAT hike 3 years ago - I think active 50 Classics in veneer are now comfortably over £10k RRP and towers quite a bit more. In this context, the price of active 40s is probably on the money. Of course, you can always try to speak to dealers about a discount.

Some will prefer to buy used active 50s if possible and others will prefer new active 40s for various reasons.

I think the price of the actives is decent. I currently run SCM40 with SIA2-150 (mid tweeter) and P1 (bass). The difference is amazing over one amp but the total cost at full price is £8375 + speaker wire for both amps. Here you get 3 amps, ok lower power but you don't need much power for mids and especially treble.

SCM40A + CA2 cost £7661. Leaving £714 to spend on xlr interconnects :D

Hi Brent

You should look at putting the decimal point between 7 and 1. That should be more than enough to spend on XLR cables :D

All the best
