Renkus-Heinz, manufacturer of premium professional loudspeakers, is showcasing the scientific advantage of digitally steerable solutions at NAMM 2020 by highlighting two cutting-edge offerings: the DC12/2 and the ICLive X Series. Both products will be on display at the Renkus-Heinz booth (#17907) and speakers from the ICLive X Series will also power live performances each night at the Hilton Anaheim Lobby Bar.
“Renkus-Heinz has taken a cutting-edge approach to digitally steerable loudspeakers over the past few years,” said Matt Czyzewski, President of Renkus-Heinz. “Not just in terms of the industry-leading engineering and science, but also in the application layer. We’re making it easier than ever to install, configure, and provide steerable sound for all environments.”
ICLive X Series
The ICLive X series brings a new level of flexibility for integrators, contractors, and production/rental houses alike to provide the best solution for any application. The ICLive X series is a complete system, designed from the ground up, consisting of two freely combinable, steerable-array modules, the ICLX and ICLXL, and a matching subwoofer, the ICLX-118S.
New for the ICLive X Series is Renkus-Heinz’s exclusive Acoustic Source Multiplier (ASM) waveguide. The ASM allows the HF section to be coaxially mounted in front of the LF section. The coaxial driver arrangement delivers a consistent and symmetrical array of both high and low frequencies along the entire length of the array, allowing the freedom to choose any acoustic center available. In addition, the ASM reduces inter-driver spacing to its absolute minimum, ensuring gradient-lobe free performance to very high frequencies.
The culmination of over a decade of experience in steerable line arrays, the ICLive X Series is the latest evolution of the medium-format, steerable line array. The ICLive X module can be arrayed up to 12 tall, making it perfect for jobs of all size: from house of worship, to theaters, to hospitality, to major stadium installs.
The first product in the Directivity Control Series, the DC12/2 ultra-compact, steerable self-powered column array brings the clarity, intelligibility, and control synonymous with Renkus-Heinz legendary digitally steered line arrays to smaller, but equally challenging, spaces.
The DC12/2 is also the first digitally steered array with control via smartphone or tablet. This means integrators can install quickly and strategically, then use several pre-defined presets through an iOS or Android device to tailor the system for the specific environment. By providing multiple directivity options in the app, Renkus-Heinz is making it possible for everyone to deliver consistent coverage that dramatically outshines a typical point source or column loudspeaker.
Easily installed with the included wall mount, the DC12/2 requires no vertical aiming and is the perfect choice for smaller venues with an abundance of reflective surfaces — meeting rooms, galleries, restaurants, fitness clubs, and small theater spaces — as well as for covering balconies, transepts, and overflow spaces.
With 12 full-range, two-inch drivers powered by twelve channels amplification, the DC12/2 is the perfect choice for any application requiring tight control and nearly invisible aesthetics.
