Alcons Audio LR24Alcons Audio has released the LR24 pro-ribbon line-array, a three-way, bi-amped mid-size system loaded with Alcons’ pro-ribbon technology for mid and high frequencies. The system claims an ‘unusually high dynamic range’ with a fast impulse response, an ‘intuitive’ linear response, and non-compressed identical tonal balance at any SPL.

The cylindrical wavefront developed from the RBN1202rs 12-inch pro-ribbon transducer and the acoustically and electronically symmetrical component configuration determine the system pattern control in both vertical and horizontal planes, up to the highest frequencies without any distortion-inducing horn constructions. coherent vertical dispersion enables non-destructive inter-cabinet coupling for maximum HF throw and wind-stability.

The RBN1202’s large 12-inch voice-coil features an unusual power handling of 2.5kW and RMS-to-peak ratio of 1:15, from 1kHz to 20kHz. The mid section, features two high-efficiency 6.5-inch midrange transducers with Neodymium motor-structure, coaxially mounted behind the HF driver in a horn-loaded configuration. The LF section delivers a new-generation 12-inch transducers fitted with a large, dual-3.5-inch voice-coil Neodymium motor, enabling a significantly-extended excursion, while maintaining a high sensitivity.

The LR24 is driven by the Sentinel amplified loudspeaker controller, optimising the system’s response by configuration-specific VHIR drive processing and feedback. The Signal Integrity Sensing pre-wiring ensures dynamic cable/connector compensation between the LR24 and ALC; This further enables a 1:1, undistorted reproduction, regardless of cable length and amplifier impedance load, with a system damping factor 10.000.

The flying system facilitates both compressed and non-compressed suspension, while enabling angle-setting on the cabinets without lifting the array. It has a WLL of 24 cabinets under 10:1 safety.

‘The LR24 is filling the gap we had between the compact LR18 and large-format LR28 pro-ribbon line-arrays and, as such, is a direct derivative of both systems, sharing features like low weight, bi-amped high output and the unique flying system of its larger sibling LR28,’ says Alcons MD, Tom Back. ‘We had many requests from Alcons users that were looking for a high-end touring system solution, where the LR28 was simply too large for their majority of applications, but its sound performance was essential.’

Suitable for medium-to large touring and production applications covering speech, to classical music, jazz, pop, EDM and hard-rock, the LR24 system is part of The Ribbon Network; Alcons Audio’s international network for dry-hire cooperation of Alcons systems; backing member with enough inventory, to bring the Alcons experience to even the largest audiences.
