Alcons CRMS-SRIW/120

FOH Staff • New Gear • November 12, 2020

Alcons’ CRMS-SRIW/120 is designed to serve as an ultra-compact reference main / screen system – or compact surround system in immersive sound-for-picture applications. It can also be used as full-range sound system in any installed audio application, where a very high quality sound reproduction with inconspicuous in-wall or on-wall mounting is required.

More details from Alcons Audio (www.alconsaudio.com):

As such, typical applications include sound system for auditoria, performing arts theaters, screening rooms, post-production facilities and dubbing stages, premium Home Cinemas and quality-conscious cinemas.

The CRMSC-SRIW/120 is part of the CRMSC system series: By utilizing identical MHF components, a perfect voicing matching between screen- and surround system is realized, resulting in an exceptionally wide and uniform sound stage throughout the entire listening area.

Featuring the patented Alcons pro-ribbon transducer technology, the CRMSC-SRIW/120 surround combines an exceptional clarity and intelligibility with an unusually high dynamic range, offering the most realistic linear sound reproduction possible at any SPL.

The two-way passive-filtered CRMSC-SRIW/120 system consists of the RBN202 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 6.5” mid-bass for LF reproduction; the HF section has a 500 W peak power input, enabling a 1:16 dynamic range with up to 90% less distortion from 1 kHz to beyond 20 kHz.

The patented 120-degrees and patent-pending 90-degrees dispersion up to the highest frequencies not only offers a very wide and coherent direct-field coverage throughout the listening space; it also guarantees a consistent reflected diffuse-field response.

The CRMS-SRIW/120 low frequency section is tuned for a usable frequency response down to 53Hz, enabling a smooth transition with additional LFE subwoofer systems.

The Signal Integrity Sensing™ pre-wiring ensures complete cable/connector compensation between the CRMSC-SRIW/120 and the ALC amplified loudspeaker controller, the dedicated drive-engine; together with VHIR™ processing, SIS™ significantly increases response accuracy, regardless of cable length and system impedance.

Philip “Dr. Phil” de Haan, head of Alcons Audio R&D: “One of the strongest and continuously returning requests we have been receiving from the customers and installers on the CRMS series, has been minimal cabinet depth. The new patent-pending waveguide we’ve developed, enables us to minimize cabinet depth to 100 mm / 3.9-in fitting in typical “2-by-4” wall constructions, while maintaining full projection control up to and beyond 20.000Hz, which is unique with ribbon line-source transducers.”

Further to the ultra-shallow depth, the CRMSC-SRIW/120 also features a revolvable RBN waveguide, optional cloth grill and ACO™ Architect Color Option in 180+ RAL color schemes for easy, inconspicuous in-wall or on-wall mounting.

As a result of Alcons’ tight manufacturing standards, all CRMSC system cabinets are well within “matched pair” tolerance, for a reference studio-grade response.

The system comes with a 6-year “no hassle” warranty.
