Renkus-Heinz IC² (IC Squared)

Combining the advantages of point source design with the control and flexibility of digitally steered array technology, IC² digitally steerable loudspeaker modules and arrays offer an elegant and innovative solution to the most challenging acoustical problems. Individual driver control delivers unequalled vertical pattern control for maximum intelligibility. IC² beams can be steered up or down while the stack or array remains vertical.

Powerful and versatile, the IC² system’s four 8-inch low frequency neodymium transducers and four 1-inch throat titanium Nitride coated HF drivers deliver powerful sound levels that belie their compact size. Whether employed individually as a stand-alone high-performance loudspeaker, ground stacked as a small array, or flown in larger, multi-cabinet arrays for even more output and greater control, IC² is an ideal solution for everything from delivering intelligible speech and cutting through crowd noise to shaking the rafters at rock concerts.

Digitally controlled, the output of an IC2 can be delivered as a single, well controlled, vertical beam as tight as 10 degrees or as wide as 80 degrees. The beam center can be aimed over a 60 degree vertical range, up or down by 30 degrees. Horizontal dispersion is a consistent 120 degrees. The IC2 output can also be designed into 2, 3 or even 4 sonic beams, each having its own acoustic center and each individually shaped and aimed - all adjustable from a remote computer over a simple Ethernet connection.

Conventional line arrays are aimed by changing the array’s shape into a curve or “J” configuration - shapes that are more difficult to fly and aim, occupy more space and often interfere with sightlines. IC2 arrays always stand or hang straight and tall, while providing precise control over the array’s output. Up to 20 IC2 array modules and IC212S subwoofers can be flown in a single powerful array.
