RCF adds horn-loaded HL Stadium Series to Installed Sound catalogue

(Edison, New Jersey) Combining the properties of a genuine horn-loaded, constant or variable curvature array, while meeting specifications for high vocal intelligibility, was the design goal set by RCF when producing the new medium- to long-throw HL series for stadium and arena use. The product was previewed at the 2013 Infocomm show this past summer and is now in production.
The new 2-way passive HL2240, HL2260, HL2290 full range and HS2200 subwoofer are vibrant additions to the Italian company’s Installed Sound System catalogue.
“The starting point was derived from two main projects “Firstly, inspired by a recent installation project undertook in a premium stadium and followed by a large-scale vocal reinforcement in the Middle East. The customer requirement was for a constant curvature array with the specific key point of vocal reproduction and our experience at these two events led to the development of this series,” says RCF Executive Director Alberto Ruozzi.
To achieve this curvature, it was found the perfect balance between a line array solution and a small system made up of several loudspeaker components.
Within the product nomenclature, the ‘22’ designates the 22.5° horizontal coverage pattern of each loudspeaker, and the 40, 60 and 90 respectively the vertical angles
All speakers are bass reflex horn loaded, symmetrically designed, with the horn in the center. The full-range speakers each house 4” horn-loaded compression driver and 2 x 12” horn-loaded sub. The 1 x 18” HS2200 subwoofer has been designed as the perfect complement for LF extension.
The connectors are IP67-rated and the enclosures, constructed in Baltic birch plywood, are finished in Polyurea, to make them IP55-rated weather resistant. The different coverage angles are defined in the RCF engineering, which enables the sound beams to be focused differently.
In addition to stadia (and other outdoor fixed applications), RCF also predicts demand for this intermediate-sized system from indoor venues such as large sports arenas.
