Alcons introduces CRS8/9090 immersive monitor
Alcons Audio has launched the CRS8, a 2-way passive-filtered full range loudspeaker designed to meet all requirements of current and future immersive surround sound formats.
The CRS8/9090 system consists of the RBN401 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 8-in mid-bass for LF reproduction. The CRS8 HF section has an 800W peak power input, enabling 1:16 dynamic range with up to 90% less distortion from 1kHz. to beyond 20.000 Hz.
Due to the “compression-less” principle of the pro-ribbon transducer technology, the system has a fully linear response, with the same tonal balance at all SPL’s for 1:1 performance.
The patented (90-degrees) horizontal and patent-pending (90-degrees) vertical dispersion of the waveguide, offers a very wide and consistent coverage up to the highest frequencies (20kHz -3dB); Very important for the imaging in height channels of immersive systems.
Driven by the Sentinel amplified loudspeaker controller, the Signal Integrity Sensing pre-wiring ensures dynamic cable/connector compensation between the CRS8 and ALC; This offers a 1:1, undistorted natural sound reproduction, regardless of cable length and amplifier impedance load.
Typical applications include (height layer) immersive surround sound systems for performing arts theaters, screening rooms, post-production facilities and dubbing stages, premium Home Cinemas and quality-conscious PLF cinemas.
The CRS8/9090 is available in two impedance choices: 8 ohms for efficient parallel connection in 5.1/7.1 configurations, and 4 ohms, for maximum amplifier efficiency in individually-amplified immersive surround systems. It comes with a 6 year warranty.
