Artison, a Savant company, has unveiled two new models of Reactance Cancelling Configuration (RCC) architectural subwoofers. The RCC160 MKII In-ceiling Subwoofer is designed to deliver evenly distributed bass reinforcement from the ceiling and provide a balanced, blended audio experience. The RCC160 MKII is designed for active entertainment spaces such as great rooms.
When the RCC160 MKII is coupled with Savant’s Micro Aperture in-ceiling speakers, this full-range loudspeaker combination delivers a musical soundscape that is rich in dynamics and detail, plus provides a perfect grille match required by architects and specifiers. The square and round grilles are just 4.65 inches in diameter. They are a match for Savant’s Micro Aperture speaker family as well as USAI Lighting Recess 4.5 fixtures, making a clean ceiling that includes subwoofers, speakers and lighting fixtures. Also included, the rectangular grille is designed to blend in with in-ceiling HVAC registers when applicable. Each RCC160 MKII aluminum enclosure features two 4-inch by 6-inch drivers.
The RCC320 Mark II In-wall/In-ceiling Subwoofer is designed for both in-wall and in-ceiling installations. It has an even higher output (than the RCC 160) and is generally designed for dedicated music or theater rooms. The RCC320 MKII employs four 4-inch by 6-inch subwoofer drivers per unit in an extruded aluminum enclosure engineered for tight spaces, with pre-construction or retrofit installation into a standard 2 x 4 stud bay. The Artison RCC320 MKII can be specified with a discrete speaker grille or an HVAC-style ceiling grille. For installations that require stacked pairs of RCC320 MKII’s, a single double-length discrete speaker grill can be ordered.
Rated at 1000 watts, the RCC1000-SA DSP-enabled amplifier features all-new firmware that was developed specifically for the Mark II series subwoofers. The 1U digital amplifier can drive up to four RCC320 MKII or eight RCC 160 MKII simultaneously, making installations featuring multiple subwoofers both cost and space-efficient on a per-zone basis.
