Featuring the patented Alcons pro-ribbon driver technology, the CRMS-SRHV combines a benchmark-setting clarity and intelligibility with an unusually high dynamic range, offering a very realistic sound reproduction. Due to the “compressionless” principle of the pro-ribbon transducer, the system has a linear response at any SPL, according to the company.
Typical applications include immersive surround sound systems for performing arts theaters, screening rooms, post-production facilities and dubbing stages, premium home cinemas and quality-conscious PLF cinemas.
The CRMS-SRHV system consists of the RBN401 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 8” mid-bass for LF reproduction. The CRMS-SRHV/9090 HF section has an 800 watts peak power input, enabling what Alcons Audio says is a 1:15 dynamic range with up to 90% less distortion from 1 kHz to beyond 20 kHz.
The patented (90-degrees) horizontal and patent-pending (90-degrees) vertical dispersion offers a very wide and consistent coverage up to the highest frequencies. 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.
The trapezoidal enclosure together with the optional grill and ACO color option, provides for easy, low profile wall or ceiling mounting.
For full system performance, the CRMS-SRHV needs to be driven by an ALC controller-amplifier, delivering maximum sound quality with increased headroom and utmost operation reliability. The system is available in 8 ohms and 4 ohms version, for maximum amplifier efficiency in individually-amplified immersive surround systems.
The Signal Integrity Sensing pre-wiring ensures complete cable/connector compensation between the CRMS-SRHV and ALC, significantly increasing response accuracy, regardless of cable length and system impedance, with tight and accurate mid and bass response as result.
The CRMS-SRHV/9090 is launching officially at ISE 2020 in Amsterdam this month.
