RCF Expands for New PRO Show
With BPM - the DJ and Electronic Music Production Event - co-locating with the newly formed PRO - Audio and Lighting Technology Show - at Birmingham’s NEC (September 13th-15th) RCF has opted to increase its presence in order to feature a wider representation from the Italian company’s extensive portfolio.
Exhibiting on stand G1, RCF UK’s Phil Price states, “We have traditionally fared well at BPM among the DJ community; but we welcome the addition of PRO as it exposes our new portable/touring and install portfolio to an entirely new segment. This will give us the best of both worlds.”
Among the popular series on display in the LIVE range will be the evergreen ART, D-Line and NX series. But visitors will be especially keen to hear the new Evox portable column speakers, which will be on demonstration in the BPM PA Experience, along with the stunning new ART745A.
The former are represented in the pole-mounted EVOX 5 and EVOX 8 (pictured) which set out to exceed the performance and portability of all competitive products in this class. In fact RCF believes this series will be the most important product to be added to its new ‘Live Sound’ catalogue this year. The latest ART745-A 15” active speaker, which replaces the previous flagship ART725-A, contains a mighty 4” voice coil and 1400W (peak) capability, making it possibly the largest voice coil ever seen within a composite enclosure in this class.
RCF caused a real surprise at this year’s Frankfurt Prolight+Sound by breaking from its core business to launch a new range of L-PAD mixers. At PRO, L-PAD can be seen with the innovative expansion cards, designed to be installed in any of the products bearing the Expansion slot, to allow internal MP3 and Bluetooth devices to be added.
There will also be examples from RCF’s extensive TT+ (Touring & Theatre) series — both at the booth and in the PRO audio demonstration area, while there will also be plenty for installation contractors, with the Media and Acustica ranges, along with the new IPS range of installation amplifiers.
Media is a complete series of general purpose full range and sub enclosures, working upwards from the ultra-compact 5” speaker, after which the versatile Acustica range takes over for more potent sound reinforcement requirements. The IPS series is a range of two-way professional amplifiers that combines high quality performance and reliability with the latest power amplification technologies.
