Renkus-Heinz added to its UniBeam steerable technology in passive columns with the launch of the PCX Series, which is debuting this week at ISE 2022 in Barcelona on stand 7M750.
The PCX Series expands on the Renkus-Heinz product range in the column array loudspeaker segment, complementing the company’s already strong offerings in the architectural audio space. Building on its flagship ICONYX self-powered steerable loudspeakers, the PCX Series provides AV contractors, consultants and sound system engineers an additional solution in the shape of a unique passive loudspeaker.
Renkus-Heinz’s Passive UniBeam technology addresses each transducer with a specially designed passive filter network to generate an asymmetrical vertical dispersion pattern, shaping the coverage downwards, and delivering consistent front-to-back coverage with minimal side lobe artifacts. The PCX Series utilizes neodymium 3” full-range drivers.
The PCX will be available in three different sizes upon launch — PCX4, PCX8 and PCX16. The combination of the included wall mount bracket (there’s an optional pan and tilt bracket) and Passive Unibeam will enable flush mounting in most applications.
All models in the PCX Series are weather resistant (IP64) as standard, resistant to salt spray and UV light, and also subject to rigorous high/low operational temperature and humidity testing, making PCX Series designed for both indoor and outdoor environments. Each model includes a gland/conduit knock-out input cover for added security and enhanced weatherization, and a high-quality, low-insertion loss transformers with an accessible tap switch for 70V/100V constant voltage operation in larger, distributed audio systems.
The PCX Series is compatible with the company’s EASE Focus 3 software wizard, allowing system design and verification with predictable results.
