Alcons unveils pro-ribbon surround

AUTHOR: Inavate

Alcons Audio has launched the CRS12GT, a 2-way passive-filtered loudspeaker.

Featuring Alcons’ proprietary multiple-patented pro-ribbon driver technology, the CRS12GT combines clarity and intelligibility with an unusually high dynamic range. The company says it has up to 90% less distortion than traditional cinema surround systems.

The CRS12GT system consists of one RBN601 6” pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 12” mid-bass for LF reproduction. The CRS12GT HF section has a 1.000W peak power input, enabling a 1:15 RMS-to-peak dynamic range with lowest distortion from 1.000Hz to beyond 20.000Hz. The absence of a “compression threshold” caters for a linear tonal balance at any SPL.
