reference surround is a 2-way passive-filtered full range loudspeaker, designed
to meet all requirements of current and future immersive surround sound formats
for studios, screening rooms and high-end residential cinemas.
Featuring the patented
Alcons pro-ribbon driver technology, the CRMSC-SRHV surround combines an
exceptional clarity and intelligibility with an unusually high dynamic range,
offering the most realistic sound reproduction possible.
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.
(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.
The CRMSC-SRHV is
designed as matching (height layer) surround system for the CRMSC system: By
utilizing identical MHF components, a perfect voicing matching between screen-
and surround system is realized, resulting in an exceptionally wide and uniform
sound stage throughout the entire listening area.
The revolvable RBN
waveguide and trapezoidal enclosure together with the optional grill and ACO™
color option, provides for easy, low profile wall or ceiling mounting.
For full system
performance, the CRMSC-SRHV needs to be driven by an ALC controller-amplifier,
delivering maximum sound quality with increased headroom and utmost operation
The Signal Integrity
Sensing™ pre-wiring ensures complete cable/connector compensation between the
CRMSC-SRHOR and ALC, significantly increasing response accuracy, regardless of
cable length and system impedance, with tight and accurate mid and bass
response as result.
include (height layer) surround sound system for premium Home Cinemas, high-end
mix/screening rooms, quality-conscious post-production facilities and dubbing
stages. As a result of Alcons’ tight manufacturing standards, all system
cabinets are within “matched pair” tolerance.
Phil “Dr. Phil” De
Haan, head of Alcons R&D: 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
introduction will take place at the coming ISE show in Amsterdam, as part of
the Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience. (booth 6H150)
