Alcons has expanded its CRMSC line of cinema sound loudspeakers with the CRMS-SRIW/120, developed as an ultra-compact reference main/screen system, or compact surround system in immersive sound-for-picture applications. It can also be used as full-range sound system in any installed audio application, where a high-quality sound reproduction with inconspicuous in-wall or on-wall mounting is required.

Alcons Audio CRMS-SRIW/120‘One of the strongest and continuously returning requests we have been receiving from the customers and installers on the CRMS series, has been minimal cabinet depth,’ says Alcons Audio R&D, Philip de Haan. ‘The new waveguide we’ve developed, enables us to minimise cabinet depth to 100mm/3.9-in fitting in typical “2-x-4” wall constructions, while maintaining full projection control up to and beyond 20kHz, which is unique with ribbon line-source transducers.’

Targetting auditoria, performing arts theatres, screening rooms, postproduction facilities and dubbing stages, premium home cinemas and quality-conscious cinemas, the CRMSC-SRIW/120uses identical MHF components to other loudspeakers in the range for perfect voicing matching between screen and surround systems. Featuring the Alcons pro-ribbon transducer technology, the CRMSC-SRIW/120 surround combines an exceptional clarity and intelligibility with an unusually high dynamic range, offering the most realistic linear sound reproduction possible at any SPL.

The two-way passive-filtered CRMSC-SRIW/120 system consists of the RBN202 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 6.5-inch mid-bass for LF reproduction; the HF section has a 500W peak power input, enabling a 1:16 dynamic range with up to 90 per cent less distortion from 1kHz to beyond 20 kHz. The 120° and 90° dispersion up to the highest frequencies not only offers a very wide and coherent direct-field coverage throughout the listening space; it also guarantees a consistent reflected diffuse-field response.

The CRMS-SRIW/120 low-frequency section is tuned for a usable frequency response down to 53Hz, enabling a smooth transition with additional LFE subwoofer systems.

The Signal Integrity Sensing pre-wiring ensures complete cable/connector compensation between the CRMSC-SRIW/120 and the ALC amplified loudspeaker controller, the dedicated drive-engine; together with VHIR processing, SIS significantly increases response accuracy, regardless of cable length and system impedance.

In addition to the ultra-shallow depth, the CRMSC-SRIW/120 also features a revolvable RBN waveguide, optional cloth grille and ACO Architect Color Option in 180+ RAL colour schemes for easy, inconspicuous in-wall or on-wall mounting. As a result of Alcons’ tight manufacturing standards, all CRMSC system cabinets are well within ‘matched pair’ tolerance, for a reference studio-grade response.
