Alcons Audio Debuts BC272 Medium-Output Cardioid Subwoofer System
Alcons Audio just debuted the BC272, a self-contained, medium-output cardioid subwoofer system for both permanent and portable ground-stacked applications. It is designed to offer a tight and accurate sub-bass response, for low-frequency extension of any Alcons pro-ribbon system. By means of a front and rear-located woofer configuration, in combination with dedicated processing, the system offers selectable cardioid low-frequency pattern control and excellent rear rejection, up to 42dB, without the need for additional cabinets.
On the front side, one 15” long-excursion woofer with 4-in. voice-coil is mounted in a front-loaded configuration while on the rear, a single 12” long-excursion woofer with 4-in. voice-coil is also mounted in a “front”-loaded configuration. The large bass reflex ports on the front and the rear side enable excellent breathing capacity, maintaining overall output while minimizing port-compression.
It’s a 4 ohms impedance subwoofer.
The BC272 is powered and controlled by the ALC amplified loudspeaker controller. Driven by the ALC, the BC272 delivers maximum sound quality and output power with long-term operation reliability. Through the integrated processor, the ALC offers BC272-specific drive processing with response optimisation, dedicated power and excursion protection and hybrid filtering. The preset library contains cardioid settings for maximum rear-/side-ward attenuation. Through the SIS (Signal Integrity Sensing) circuit, the cable-length and connector resistance between the BC272 and ALC is dynamically compensated (system damping factor >10.000), for further increased accuracy and controlled cone-travel, resulting in a tighter sub and bass response regardless of impedance or cable-length.
The relatively low-weight, but rigid enclosure is available in road-version and installation (“i”) version, without handles, wheel dolly board and M20 threaded stand mount flange. For installation applications, a single-cabinet flying option is also available. It is finished in Durotect scratch-resistant coating; Through the Architect Color Option program, the BC272 can be finished in any RAL color.
