At the ongoing ISE 2022 show in Barcelona, Renkus-Heinz (booth 7M750) has announced the introduction of the PCX Series, a new family of passive column loudspeakers incorporating its proprietary UniBeam steerable technology.
“The PCX Series brings the precise coverage, high intelligibility, and demonstrated sound quality of our flagship ICONYX loudspeakers to passive column arrays,” says Ralph Heinz, CTO at Renkus-Heinz. “Adding passive columns to our portfolio opens up new installation opportunities for our partners and introduces The Sound Solution of Renkus-Heinz to a broader spectrum of applications where intelligible sound matters most.”
Three PCX models are offered — PCX4, PCX8 and PCX16 — all loaded with 3-inch neodymium full-range drivers. The passive UniBeam technology addresses each transducer with a specially designed passive filter network to generate an asymmetrical vertical dispersion pattern, shaping the coverage downwards, designed to deliver more consistent front-to-back coverage with minimal side lobe artifacts.
The included wall mount bracket (optional pan and tilt bracket) and Unibeam technology enables flush mounting in most applications. All models are weather resistant (IP64) as standard; salt spray and UV resistant, as well as subject to rigorous high/low operational temperature and humidity testing.
They’re also equipped a gland/conduit knock-out input cover for added security and enhanced weatherization and a low-insertion loss transformers with an accessible tap switch for 70/100-volt constant voltage operation. Specification is aided by compatibility with EASE Focus 3 software, allowing system design and verification with predictable results.
