RCF are presenting a host of new and updated products here at Prolight + Sound 2019, as well as showcasing product ranges in the outdoor demo area.
Firstly, we see that the HDL 50-A has now been given the “4K Treatment”, now delivered 4000w rms of power in the new HDL 50-A 4K. With two 12” woofers, four symmetrical 6.5” midrange drivers and two 2” drivers, it offers an SPL of up to 143dB.
RCF’s popular HDL range has now been divided into two sections, with the HDL 6-A, 10A and 20A providing effective solutions for rental companies and plug and play companies. We then have the HDL 26-A, 28-A and 30-A adding enhanced feature-sets, including onboard networking via RdNet, and FiRPHASE fitted as standard, as well as utilising neodymium drivers.
There’s updates to the company’s point-source offerings also, with 15” additions to the company’s existing range of 12” HD cabinets. RCF now adds HD 15-A, 35-A and 45-A – the later featuring onboard RdNet, meaning it can be utilised as a front-fill or delay speaker with remote control of the necessary parameters.
Next up is mixers, firstly in the analogue domain with the addition of a 24 channel console – F24XR. Phantom power has been divided into two banks for this console giving increased control over the additional channels available.
As for digital, RCF are proud to announce M 20X, a 16-preamp digital console offering 20 inputs in total. A five-inch capacitive touch screen provides control for a multitude of onboard features, including fx processing with hi-pass, gate, 4-band parametric EQ, compressor (channels 1-16) and gate, with four internal studio-quality Z.CORE FX engines. Each input has a selectable input, allowing the user to select from analogue input, stream over USB from a DAW, or Record or Playback from an SD card on up to 20 tracks.
A dedicated remote app, based on RCF’s MixerMote, can be used via a wireless dongle connected to the console’s second USB slot. There’s also a rack-mount version of the console available – M 20R – and both units can be factory upgraded to include Dante comparability.
