Realizing the potential of this high quality signal, Lynx… View this story

    Alcons Audio has introduced the QR24, a modular 2-way column loudspeaker to be used as vertical array system for both permanent and (limited) portable applications. The QR24 combines a natural, dynamic sound reproduction with intelligibility and throw, without the need for DSP-based beam shaping. Due to its modularity, the QR24’s throw and low-frequency directivity (“near field”) can be increased just by extending the array length; multiple individual mid-high frequency lobes can be made by using the QM low-mid fill columns.… View this story
