Following early previews at this year’s Prolight+Sound Frankfurt and InfoComm USA, Alcons Audio is now shipping the LR18B.
The LR18B is the dedicated low-frequency extension to the LR18 compact mid-sized pro-ribbon line-array system. It can also be combined with any other Alcons pro-ribbon system as subwoofer in both permanent and portable applications.
The front-loaded system delivers a super accurate bass and sub response with highest output under lowest distortion. The Max-Vent port design combines further increased output with low power compression.
The LR18B is designed for optimal deployment flexibility – it can be used as single subwoofer or in multiples end-fire or cardioid array as well as together with LR18 or in separate sub-only arrays. All functionality is possible in stacked or flown configurations.
Philip de Haan, head of Alcons R&D, comments: “With LR18B we are continuing our philosophy of bringing advanced transducer technology in our designs. The 18” is a new-generation transducer, fitted with a large, dual- 4.5” voice-coil Neodymium motor; This enables a significantly-extended excursion, thus SPL output, while maintaining a high sensitivity.
“Specific attention in this design has been paid to obtain lowest possible distortion; In combination with the SIS sensing circuit onboard the Sentinel, this combination of advanced technologies is a perfect match with our pro-ribbon mid-high systems.”
