The IC8R-II is an update to the Iconyx range, introducing significant performance improvement over its predecessor, the IC8R, combining a new triple-tweeter high-frequency array coax with the equally new RHAON (Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network) Version 1.8 beam steering module.
The new triple-tweeter design creates a continuous, close-spaced HF line source that pushes the onset of gradient lobes out past 10 kHz, while the new RHAON V. 1.8 beam-steering module offers a host of new features to make setting up and commissioning Iconyx arrays faster and more consistent.
First, a new automated beam-shaping algorithm, developed from the feedback of years of practical implementation, maps consistent coverage and sound pressure level throughout the audience areas. In addition, the frequency response of the beam-shaping filters can now be optimized prior to uploading into the column, meaning that very little, if any, additional equalization is required during commissioning process. The basic filter sets have been updated for improved directional consistency over a wider frequency range.
