RCF expands for new PRO Show

With BPM: DJ and Electronic Music Production Event co-locating with the newly formed PRO: Audio and Lighting Technology Show at Birmingham’s NEC (September 13-15) RCF has opted to increase its presence in order to feature a wider representation from the Italian company’s extensive portfolio.
Exhibiting on stand #G1, RCF UK’s Phil Price states, “We have traditionally fared well at BPM among the DJ community; but we welcome the addition of PRO as it exposes our new portable/touring and install portfolio to an entirely new segment. This will give us the best of both worlds.”
Among the popular series on display in the LIVE range will be the evergreen ART, D-Line and NX series. But visitors will be especially keen to hear the new Evox portable column speakers, which will be on demonstration in the PA Experience, along with the stunning new ART745A.
The former are represented in the pole-mounted EVOX 5 and EVOX 8 which set out to exceed the performance and portability of all competitive products in this class. In fact RCF believes this series will be the most important product to be added to the new ‘Live Sound’ catalogue this year. The latest ART745-A 15in active speaker, which replaces the previous flagship ART725-A, contains a mighty 4in voice coil and 1400W (peak) capability … making it possibly the largest voice coil ever seen within a composite enclosure in this class.
RCF caused a real surprise at this year’s Frankfurt Prolight+Sound by breaking from their core business to launch a new range of L-PAD mixers. At PRO, L-PAD can be seen with the innovative expansion cards, designed to be installed in any of the products bearing the Expansion slot, to allow internal MP3 and Bluetooth devices to be added.
There will also be examples from RCF’s extensive TT+ (Touring & Theatre) series — both at the booth and in the PRO demonstration area, while there will also be plenty for installation contractors, with The Media and Acustica ranges, along with the new IPS range of installation amplifiers.
Media is a complete series of general purpose full range and sub enclosures, working upwards from the ultra-compact 5in speaker, after which the versatile Acustica range takes over for more potent sound reinforcement requirements. The IPS series is a range of two-way professional amplifiers that combines high quality performance and reliability with the latest power amplifications technologies.
The ART 745-A it’s a unique product in its category. The titanium dome, 4.0” voice coil neo compression driver offers a unique vocal clarity and sound projection. The 15” neo woofer offers an extremely linear response and a precise, deep low frequency control. The transducers are built in RCF factory in Italy using the most advanced assembly technologies. The amplifier delivers 1400 Watt and is controlled by a DSP that takes care of crossover, equalisation, phase alignment, soft limiting and speaker protections.
The very compact size, no compromise transducers and a unique composite cabinet design make the HDL 10-A the perfect tool in many situations. Ideal in live sound reinforcement and reliable installed situations. The HDL 10-A is the ideal choice when line array performance is needed and a fast and easy set up is a must. The system is powered from a 1400 Watt Peak Power 2 way digital amplifier, sound is processed from a powerful DSP.
EVOX SYSTEM is a portable compact size sound reinforcement system. It combines the quality and reliability of RCF transducers with a very high amplification power. The system features five or eight 2.0” full range transducers in the line source satellite and a deep sounding 10” or 12” woofer in a bass reflex enclosure. The system is designed to be the perfect high output solution for live music and DJs. The unique vocal attitude and SPL make EVOX the perfect tool for larger presentations, corporate events and congresses.
RCF L-PAD is a line of compact but high performance audio mixers with enhanced flexibility. The elegant and modern Italian design completes the appeal of these indispensable tools in any live audio application — from the performance of a rock band or a jazz quartet, to supporting a conference room or a media centre rather than a museum or library. The models are distinguished by an uncompromising audio quality, by the presence of compressors in seven of the models and internal multi-effects in five of the models, all in a compact layout with an accurate Italian design.
RCF TT+ High Definition Touring and Theatre represents true high definition audio quality solutions with the very latest technology in transducer development plus new generation Class D digital active amplification and ‘DSP' (Digital Sound Processor) for big live concerts, events, fixed theatre installations and stage monitoring. The TT+ line consists of true active and passive models, conceived and designed for specific applications.
The RCF Media Series presents a 360º approach to the Sound System Design. With the addiction of new models the RCF Installed Sound Catalogue offers a complete portfolio, a complete package, to the Audio System Engineer and with this RCF becomes a single source, trusted partner, from the smallest to the most complex audio project.
The new Media Series features 9 models and is the ideal solution for small to medium sized projects, for distributed systems, perfect complement to the RCF Compact or H Series Models.
