PL+S 2017: Alcons debuting two new line array products

This year’s Prolight + Sound will see Alcons Audio preview two new products for the first time, a wide-dispersion version of the LR28 Larger Format Line Array and an extension of the QR24 series, the company’s modular high-output line-source column.

In a development which will be of interest to larger live productions and festivals, the 110º horizontal dispersion LR28/110 is designed as an extension of the existing three-way, 80º dispersion LR28/80.

Featuring the same faceprint downfill and components (two 14in woofers, four 6.5in midrange and a RBN1402rsr pro-ribbon driver) on a 110º waveguide, the LR28/110 is powered and controlled by four channels of the Sentinel10 amplified loudspeaker controller. Like the LR28/80, it has a rigging system that enables angle-setting on the cabinets without lifting the array, resulting in safer and faster set-up with minimal handling.

Alcons is also showing its new extension of the QR24 series modular high-output line-source column. Designed for acoustically challenging venues, the QR24 is able to deliver high output and sharp dispersion control, without the need for active beam steering.

Another highlight of Alcons’ presence at Prolight + Sound 2017 will be an off-site demonstration of the LR18 line array, RR12 point source array and QR24. This takes place on Wednesday 5 April, with further details provided to those who register on Alcons stand B50 in Hall 3.1.

"We are looking forward to meeting our Pro-Ribbon Ambassadors and potential new customers from across the world at Prolight + Sound, which is always a very busy show for us," said Alcons co-founder Tom Back. "Our off-site demonstration is always the opportunity for sound professionals to hear the many advantages of our pro-ribbon technology; A fully linear,1:15 dynamic response and crystal-clear reproduction with up-to-90% less distortion at any SPL."

Prolight + Sound takes place at Messe Frankfurt from 4-7 April 2017.
