The Alcons Audio CRMS-SRHV surround is a two-way passive-filtered loudspeaker, designed to meet all requirements of current and future immersive surround sound formats. Typical applications include (height layer) immersive surround sound systems for performing arts theatres, screening rooms, postproduction facilities and dubbing stages, premium Home Cinemas and quality-conscious PLF cinemas.

Alcons Audio CRMS-SRHVThe CRMS-SRHV combines clarity and intelligibility with an unusually high dynamic range, claiming a linear response at any SPL. The system comprises the RBN401 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 8-inch mid-bass for LF reproduction. The CRMS-SRHV/9090 HF section has an 800W peak power input, enabling a 1:15 dynamic range with up to 90 per cent less distortion from 1kHz to beyond 20kHz.

The 90° horizontal and 90° vertical dispersion offers a very wide and consistent coverage up to the highest frequencies; By using identical MHF components, a perfect voicing matching between screen and surround system is realised, resulting in an exceptionally wide and uniform sound stage throughout the entire listening area.

The trapezoidal enclosure together with the optional grill and ACO colour option, provides for easy, low profile wall or ceiling mounting.

For full system performance, the CRMS-SRHV should be driven by an ALC controller-amplifier, delivering maximum sound quality with increased headroom and utmost operation reliability. The system is available in 8Ω and 4Ω version, for maximum amplifier efficiency in individually-amplified immersive surround systems.

The Signal Integrity Sensing pre-wiring ensures complete cable/connector compensation between the CRMS-SRHV and ALC, significantly increasing response accuracy, regardless of cable length and system impedance, with tight and accurate mid and bass response as result.

‘The CRMS range is our separate group of solutions for the studio and residential markets. Following our compact immersive systems, with CRMS-SRHV, we now also have the versatile height or width channel solution for the larger studios, theatres and screening rooms,’ says Head of R&D, Philip De Haan.

‘As we continue to upscale the possibilities of our patent-pending waveguide technology, we have optimised the 4” RBN401 to bring the wide 90° x 90° dispersion into the CRMS range, while utilising the exact same transducers for a perfect voicing-match throughout the CRMS family. We have already received very positive feedback from the first critical listening applications that deployed the system.’
