Alcons Adds to Pro-Ribbon Horizons Line

The Alcons CRMSC-SRHV/120 reference surround is a two-way passive-filtered full range loudspeaker, designed to meet all requirements of current and future surround sound formats.

The CRMSC-SRHV/120 system consists of one RBN202 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 6.5″ mid-bass for LF reproduction. The HF section has a 500-watt peak power input, enabling a 1:16 dynamic range with up to 90 percent less distortion from 1 kHz to beyond 20 kHz. Due to the “compression-less” principle of the pro-ribbon transducer, the system has a linear response at any SPL.

The unique property of the surround is the very wide dispersion pattern. The patented (120-degrees) and patent-pending (90-degrees) dispersion, up to 20.000Hz, offers a very wide and consistent coverage and significantly extends the stereo “sweet-spot” throughout the room. The revolvable RBN waveguide enables a precise projection-matching of the listening area.

Typical applications include (height layer) surround sound system for premium Home Cinemas, high-end mix/screening rooms, quality-conscious post-production facilities and dubbing stages. By utilizing identical MHF components, a perfect voicing matching between screen- and surround system is realized, resulting in an exceptionally wide and uniform sound stage throughout the entire listening area. As a result of Alcons’ tight manufacturing standards, all system cabinets are within “matched pair” tolerance.

The Signal Integrity Sensing pre-wiring ensures complete cable/connector compensation between the CRMSC-SRHV/120 and ALC, significantly increasing response accuracy, regardless of cable length and system impedance, with tight and accurate mid and bass response as result.

The CRMSC-SRHV/120 is part of the Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience at the Integrated Systems Europe show in Amsterdam.
