ALCONS INTRODUCES CRMS REFERENCE SYSTEM
Eight years after the introduction of the original, Alcons launches the mkII version of its successful CRMS Cinema Reference Monitor System.
The CRMS is a three-way sound system design to offer the most natural 1:1 Digital Cinema and HD audio sound reproduction possible.
Featuring the patented RBN401 pro-ribbon driver, the CRMS combines a remarkable clarity and intelligibility, with a high headroom SPL. The Alcons pro-ribbon drivers have much less distortion than conventional mid/high transducers, while the high peak power handling offers a 1:16 RMS-to-peak ratio, enabling maximum screen compensations without audible stress on the MHF performance.
The patented horizontal dispersion of the RBN401 extends the stereo-imaging and depth-of-field to a larger number of seats in the auditorium; Due to the ‘compression-less’ principle of the pro-ribbon transducer, the system is designed to have a linear response at any SPL, from the quietest whisper to the loudest explosion or drum solo.
The CRMS system consists of a separate, adjustable mid-high frequency section, featuring one RBN401 4” pro-ribbon driver HF with non-vented 8” mid-range driver and a vented low frequency section with 15” woofer with low power-compression 4” voice-coil design.
A matching surround system with identical MF/HF components, CRMS-SR, is available, offering screen/surround blending, resulting in a very uniform sound stage and a seamless transition between surround positions in an immersive sound system.
For full system performance, the bi-amped CRMS is to be driven by two channels of ALC Sentinel controller-amplifier.
