ISE 2018: Alcons introduces CRMSC-SRHV monitor system

Alcons Audio will be introducing the CRMSC-SRHV reference (surround) monitor system at the ISE Show in Amsterdam in February.

The CRMSC-SRHV is designed for studios, screening rooms, post-production facilities, commercial cinemas and premium home cinemas.

The CRMSC-SRHV system consists of one RBN202 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 6.5" mid-bass for LF reproduction. The CRMSC-SRHV HF section has an 500 W peak power input, enabling a 1:16 dynamic range with up to 90% less distortion from 1 kHz to beyond 20 kHz.

The patented (90-degrees) horizontal and patent-pending (60-degrees) vertical dispersion offers a wide and consistent coverage to a larger number of seats in the auditorium; Due to the "compression-less" principle of the pro-ribbon transducer, the system has a linear response at any SPL.

Commenting on the new product, Phil "Dr. Phil" De Haan, head of Alcons R&D said: "The CRMSC-SRHV is the first speaker that incorporates our patent-pending vertical-control waveguide technology. The initial beta-testing proved the validity of the concept, with many praises from listeners on the quality of the immersive details and coverage.

"Until now, the undisputed quality of the pro-ribbons was sometimes limited in application by the natural behaviour in the vertical / non-coupling plane; Some try to overcome this by using multiple drivers, but with severe compromises in imaging due to comb-filtering. We’ve taken a different development approach, which results in increased coverage, while still maintaining the purity of a single driver source. Needless to say, more point-source systems will be launched with this technology."

The official introduction will take place at the coming ISE show in Amsterdam, as part of the Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience on (booth 6H150).
