At InfoComm earlier this month, Renkus-Heinz launched what they care calling the IC2 (IC Squared), the first ever crossover array. The IC2 is a digitally steerable line array that combines the power and focus of point source loudspeaker technology with the control and flexibility of a digitally steered array.
According to Renkus-Heinz , the IC2’s breakthrough technology integrates what they are calling “digital beam steering” into a powerful and versatile point source design. Four 8-inch low frequency Neodymium transducers and 1-inch Titanium Nitride coated HF drivers offer high SPL point source performance, while individual steering control of each driver gives the IC2unrivalled vertical pattern control for maximum intelligibility, even in the most reverberant spaces.
Each IC2 two-way 8-inch module delivers articulate musicality and powerful punch, with a versatile design that can be used as a stand-alone, high-performance loudspeaker, a small ground stack or a flown array of up to 20 cabinets. Each IC2 module can deliver up to four beams, with individual control over aiming and opening angles.
The IC2 isn’t on their website yet, but when it is, it will be here: http://www.renkus-heinz.com/products/products.html
