The new Alcons CRMSC-SRHV/120 reference surround is a 2-way passive-filtered full range loudspeaker, designed to meet all requirements of current and future high-resolution surround sound formats. Featuring the multiple-patented Alcons pro-ribbon driver transducer technology, the CRMSC-SRHV/120 system consists of one RBN202 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 6.5-inch mid-bass for LF reproduction. The HF section has a 500 W peak power input, enabling a 1:16 dynamic range with up to 90 percent less distortion from 1 kHz to beyond 20 kHz. According to Alcons, due to the “compression-less” principle of the pro-ribbon transducer, the system has a linear response at any SPL.
“The CRMSC-SRHV120 follows our initial designs CRMSC-SRHV and VR5 with the patent-pending waveguide technology,” says Philip “Dr. Phil” De Haan, head of Alcons R&D. “Now we were able to extend the dispersion of the RBN202 transducer up to a very wide 120-degree by 90-degree over the entire bandwidth from 1 kHz to 20 kHz. This is the very first time ever that a (pro-)ribbon transducer reaches this extreme coverage with this constant directivity. The resulting imaging and sound-stage needs to be experienced to be truly appreciated by the listener.”
The CRMSC-SRHV/120 will be part of the Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience at ISE.
