Alcons is now shipping the first product of its Q Series, the QR36. The Q Series scalable ribbon array columns represent a cross between a traditional point-source loudspeaker and a J-curved line array system.
Applications for the QR36 range from stand- or truss-mounted single-unit mobile P.A. system, up to multiple-module flown array in reverberant halls or high-ceiling theaters. The QR36 is intended for use in sidefill stage monitoring or as single-column main P.A. system in low-ceiling applications.
The QR36 is a two-way passive-filtered modular line source column. With a length of one meter, the QR36 comprises six 6.5-inch woofers in frontal bass reflex-loading and two units of Alcons’ RBN1801 18-inch pro ribbon transducers with patented Real-90 horizontal dispersion. The frequency response is 74 to 20k Hz (+/-3 dB), with a lowest usable frequency of 53 Hz (-10 dB). Power handling is 780W RMS, bringing 129dB continuous output, while the 6,000W peak power handling from 1 kHz offers a 150dB headroom.
