2100 W: the most powerful wireless Bluetooth® speaker

ART 9-AX is the most powerful speaker on the market, also when connected wireless. 

The Class 1 Bluetooth® connection can receive 2-channel audio streaming and provides a stereo or dual mono output for pairing with AX-featured RCF speakers. We tested over 100 meters (328 feet) free-field operability. Enjoy the convenience of Bluetooth® connection when you have architectural constraints, pedestrian areas, or inaccessible signal connections.

Power that moves

The most powerful amplifier in its class. RCF's improvements in transducer design make them stronger and powerful, so the amplifier follows the evolution. With 2100 Watts of power, the 2-channel ART 9 Class-D amplifier is 50% more powerful than previous models, able to manage extremely high sound pressure levels with an ultra-fast attack, realistic transient response, and very low heat loss. ART 9 is very energy-efficient so there is no need for a cooling fan - the amplifier is attached to a solid aluminum heat exchanger in the back of the unit - with no moving parts. Being physically connected with the internal frame, the amplifier is firm and solid within the cabinet. The input circuit features a new low distortion design with an advanced safety limiter, maintaining the true character of the input signal at all levels. All ART 9 amplifiers are designed according to EN62368-1 for maximum safety and present a Switch Mode Power Supply section joining high-efficiency with minimum weight.

A Live Experience in your Pocket

Advanced Features for Professional Users

The internal mixer disentangles all your routing needs and an internal crossover helps you use the speaker with any subwoofer. An internal 5-band parametric EQ lets you manage boomy spaces or modal resonances, while the output delay keeps your sound always in time. Wireless pairing to another ART 9-AX is a handy tool when you have physical constraints and can't run signal cables.
