The new Reference Series comprises two 12-inch models, two 15-inch models and two double 15-inch models available with 1-inch and 1.5-inch compression drivers equipped with titanium diaphragms. Included in the range of externally powered products are two subwoofer systems boasting a single 18-inch bass-reflex configuration and a high-power double 18-inch system for use in applications requiring the extra low-frequency power, such as dance clubs and discos.
The new series has been manufactured using 18mm Birch plywood and are painted in a protective black paint finish. All new rotatable horns with 80ºx50º and 60ºx40º horn dispersions offer precise coverage and control whether the cabinets are used in either the horizontal or vertical position. A new grille design—which is internally lined with acoustically transparent filter cloth—protects the speaker components. The larger RF-215.96 and the Sub-218G are equipped with rear located wheels.
Each cabinet has 12 M10 rigging points so that they can be easily installed using forged steel eyebolts. The rigging points can also be used with the two-piece wall or ceiling “L” brackets, as well as the newly incorporated array frame, which permits a horizontal array of up to three RF-12 or RF 15 models. For mobile use, the 12-inch and 15-inch cabinets include a standard speaker stand/pole-mount socket, and are capable of receiving the “AX-Truss,” an optional truss-mount accessory that can be attached to standard 50mm lighting truss.
