Alcons Introduces CRMSC-SRHV Pro-Ribbon Reference Surround

The Alcons CRMSC-SRHV reference surround is a two-way passive-filtered full range loudspeaker, designed to meet all requirements of current and future immersive surround sound formats for studios, screening rooms and high-end residential cinemas.

Featuring the Alcons pro-ribbon driver technology, the CRMSC-SRHV system consists of one RBN202 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 6.5″ mid-bass for LF reproduction. The CRMSC-SRHV 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. The patented (90-degrees) horizontal and patent-pending (60-degrees) vertical dispersion offers a wide and consistent coverage to a larger number of seats in the auditorium; due to the “compression-less” principle of the pro-ribbon transducer, the system has a linear response at any SPL.

The CRMSC-SRHV is designed as matching (height layer) surround system for the CRMSC system. By utilizing identical MHF components, voicing matching between screen and surround system is realized, resulting in what Alcons says is an exceptionally wide and uniform sound stage throughout the entire listening area. The revolvable RBN waveguide and 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 CRMSC-SRHV needs to be driven by an ALC controller-amplifier, delivering maximum sound quality with increased headroom and utmost operation reliability. The Signal Integrity Sensing pre-wiring ensures complete cable/connector compensation between the CRMSC-SRHOR and ALC, significantly increasing response accuracy, regardless of cable length and system impedance, with tight and accurate mid and bass response as result.

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. As a result of Alcons’ tight manufacturing standards, all system cabinets are within “matched pair” tolerance.

The official introduction will take place at ISE in Amsterdam. Here are the specs.
