Alcons Releases Boundaries with CRS8 Surround

The arrival of Digital Cinema has brought new challenges for sound systems: Simply using higher power versions of existing speaker designs is not enough to enhance the Digital Cinema sound experience. Speech, music and effect should be reproduced with finest non-compressed detail and fullest digital dynamics. 
 
As addition to Alcons’ evolutionary Digital Cinema sound system program in the surround domain, the company introduces the CRS8 high-fidelity pro-ribbon surround system.
The CRS8 is a 2-way passive-filtered full range loudspeaker, combining an exceptional clarity and intelligibility with lowest distortion and an unusually high dynamic range, offering the most realistic sound reproduction possible.
 
The CRS8 system configuration consists of one RBN401 pro-ribbon driver for MHF and a vented reference quality 8” mid-bass for LF reproduction.
The RBN401 driver is a proprietary-designed and multiple-patented pro-ribbon mid/high frequency transducer; Due to the low weight moving mass, this transducer reproduces sound with up to 90% less distortion than compression driver designs.
 
As a result of the “direct-drive” principle of the pro-ribbon transducer (without a compression mechanism), the system has a linear response, with the same tonal balance at lowest as well as highest sound pressure levels.
 
In addition, the very high 800W peak power handling of the RBN401 pro-ribbon driver offers a 1:16 RMS-to-peak power ratio, enabling true Digital Cinema dynamics from 1kHz. to beyond 20kHz.
 
By utilizing the exact same RBN401 transducer as featured in Alcons’ pro-ribbon screen systems, a unique voicing matching between screen- and surround system is realized, resulting in an exceptionally wide and deep sound stage throughout the entire listening area.
This makes a striking difference in multi-channel immersive surround sound systems.
 
To optimize the amplifier loading in immersive surround systems, the CRS8 is also available in 4 ohms impedance.
