Description Technical Specs

The Model 42 MK II continues the tradition of quality of the original TEC Award nominated and award- winning Model 42. Based upon the industry’s finest dual concentric driver, the MKII’s rhomboid shaped enclosure and DSP assisted amplifier deliver unique performance and functionality.

Why upgrade an award winning speaker? The reason for the upgrade is all about headroom. At Pelonis Sound our philosophy about headroom is “the more, the better”. Every piece of equipment in the signal chain should “clip” at the same level. Setting the calibration levels within a system is essential, but many active loudspeakers are designed with inputs that are “hot”, so they seem stand up well in dealer’s showrooms. Few pre-amps have room to “breath” when driving hot speakers. Not so with the Pelonis Signature Series. Pre-amps run at or near their “2 o’clock” unity gain settings.

While this is an ideal situation, few dealers take the time to explain the advantages of a full system calibration, where headroom is maintained end to end. Many people just assume that LOUDER is BETTER. Well, we couldn’t agree to give up headroom, but given the perception the Signature Series needed more gain, we added 3.9dB to the inputs and even picked up a dB of headroom in the process!
