Renkus-Heinz just introduced what may be the best single-array module ever in the form of the Iconyx Compact Series 12/3-RN. The Iconyx Compact Series brings the flexibility of the Iconyx to a smaller footprint array, filling a need for integrators seeking integration options in the “medium-sized” installations typical in the house of worship, corporate, transportation, education and government markets. In my opinion, this is going to be a big hit as we find ourselves making smaller spaces to accommodate a post-COVID-19 world.
The Iconyx Compact Series brings performance and directivity to spaces where even the classic Iconyx arrays might be too large. The narrow cabinet disappears into nearly any venue. At the same time, the vertical directivity can help penetrate challenging acoustics, making the performance of beam-steered line arrays available to architecturally sensitive spaces. A 12-channel digital amplifier powers 12, 3”/ 77-mm full-range, high-sensitivity treated paper cone drivers. With an amplifier and DSP channel for each driver, the flexibility of Iconyx is now available in a package nearly 40 percent smaller than the classic Iconyx.
The included wall-mount bracket makes mounting easy and is nearly invisible behind the arrays. Standard RN units have analog and AES inputs.
