Alcons at ProLight&Sound 2005

29 March 2005

The Netherlands / Germany - Following a very successful first full manufacturing year, Dutch manufacturer Alcons Audio will present a number of new products at the Frankfurt ProLight&Sound exhibition (6-9 April) plus a complete new product series. The full production version of the LR14, Alcons' ultra-compact line-array module, will be on show, following a number of previews. Featuring the patented RBN401 pro-ribbon driver and double 6.5" woofers with a dispersion pattern of 120 x 15°, the LR14 is designed to be used either as an ultra-compact line-array system, or as an under-fill of the LR16.

New on show will be the LR14B, the ultra-compact, lightweight, high-output bass module of the LR14 line-array, with double Neodymium 12" in double-tuned band-pass configuration. The LR14B combines a very low weight with very high specific SPL output, making the LR14B an excellent low-frequency extension in both stacked and flown array configurations.

However, the company's main focus will be the official introduction of the Q-series - a new product series based on modular line-source columns with lengths of 1m or 0.5m. The series has been designed as a solution for ultimate intelligibility in "acoustically challenging" environments, say the company. The scalable ribbon-arrays combine a very high directivity with totally controlled dispersion, in both vertical and horizontal plane. Alcons adds that the Q-series has already proven an ideal solution as a single-column main PA system in low-ceiling applications where a J-curved array will not give satisfactory throw or dispersion results.

The Q-series features patented, all-new pro-ribbon transducer technology, say Alcons, with immense output capabilities; the RBN1801 pro-ribbon driver offers an extreme power handling of 3kW and a very high efficiency of 110dB with 1W @ 1m, with a frequency range of 1kHz - 20kHz (+/-3dB). The series currently consists of two models: the QR18 (0.5m length, with RBN1801 and 3 x 6.5" woofers) and the QR36 (1m length, with 2 x RBN1801 and 6x 6.5" woofers). Both feature frontal bass reflex-loading and Alcons' patented "Real-90" horizontal dispersion.

A selection of other Alcons products will be on show, including the already famous LR16 ('The Ribbon') pro-ribbon line-array module, plus the LR16B bass system and the VR8 and VR12 systems, which were recently applied in West End theatre productions in London.

Alcons Audio can be found in Hall 8.0, on stand number D15.
