Alcons Audio has announced the debut of the new LR24 pro-ribbon line-array system at the NAMM 2020 show. The LR24 is a 3-way, bi-amped “mid-size” format line-array system equipped with Alcons’ pro-ribbon technology for mid and high frequencies.
The all-natural cylindrical wavefront of the purpose-designed RBN1202rs 12-inch pro-ribbon transducer and the acoustically and electronically symmetrical component configuration bring a pattern control in both the vertical as well as the horizontal plane. The coherent vertical dispersion enables a non-destructive inter-cabinet coupling for HF throw and wind-stability.
The RBN1202’s 12-inch voice-coil features power handling of 2500W and RMS-to-peak ratio of 1:15, from 1.000 Hz to 20.000 Hz. The MF-section, features two 6.5” midrange transducers with Neodymium motor-structure, coaxially mounted behind the HF driver in a horn-loaded configuration. The new-generation 12-inch transducers are fitted with a dual-3.5-inch voice-coil Neodymium motor.
The LR24 is driven by the Sentinel amplified loudspeaker controller, optimizing the system’s response by configuration-specific VHIR drive processing and feedback. The Signal Integrity Sensing pre-wiring ensures cable/connector compensation between the LR24 and ALC; this further enables a 1:1, regardless of cable length and amplifier impedance load, with a system damping factor 10.000.
The 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.
Suitable for medium-top-large touring and production applications, the LR24 system is inventory of “The Ribbon Network”; Alcons Audio’s international network for dry-hire cooperation of Alcons systems; backing member with enough inventory.
Tom Back, managing director Alcons Audio: “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.”
