Alcons has today (August 29) unveiled its new CRMS-LFE18 subwoofer system, which is claims delivers a “super accurate” bass and sub response for a “maximum quality” audible and sensible performance.
Designed for demanding listening applications, the LFE system is ideal for quality-conscious post-production facilities and mastering suites, high-end mix/screening rooms, recording studios and premium home theatres.
Phil “Dr. Phil” De Haan, head of Alcons R&D said: “We’ve spent quite some time on the development of this 18” transducer, as it required totally different parameters than our maximum output PA transducers. We really wanted to get into the single-digit frequency domain with this subwoofer, with the typical Alcons non-compromise quality standard. We developed the 18” woofer with a large motor structure with dual 3” voice-coils, so we were able to reach an extreme excursion of 30 mm / 1.2-in. resulting in a 10 dB more excursion capability than with a traditional PA 18” woofer.”
He continues: “Driven by the ALC, with our new VHIR processing and the SIS sensing circuit, the CRMS-LFE18 is designed to deliver the most accurate reproduction for even the lowest octaves, in combination with our CRMS pro-ribbon main and surround systems. The feedback we receive from the very first customers is, they believe it brings the most realistic experience of speech, music and effects, as it was intended. And that’s exactly what Alcons is all about!”
The CRMS-LFE18 was first unveiled at ISE in February, and will official launch at the upcoming CEDIA show in San Diego, USA.
