Alcons Audio LR28 / 80 Larger- Format Line Array Module
Alcons has released the LR28 / 80 , a three-way larger-format line-source sound system , designed to be used as vertical array in medium to large applications .
The LR28 offers a predictable linear response behavior , with tonal balance at any SPL . By implementing Alcons ’ proribbon technology for mid and high frequencies , an impulse response with up to 90 % less distortion under lowest powercompression is achieved . The all-natural cylindrical wavefront of the RBN1402rsr pro-ribbon transducer enables pattern control , without any distortion-inducing horn constructions . The 80-degree horizontal dispersion is maintained down to 190Hz .; The HF peak power handling of 3,000W and RMSto-peak ratio of 1:15 caters for intelligibility and throw with maximum dynamic headroom reserve .
The MF-section features four 6.5-in . midrange transducers with neodymium motor-structure in a slot-loaded configuration . The mid section and RBN high section are jointly mounted in and on the aluminium cassette for heat-dissipation and reduced power-compression , plus prolonged system output . The LF section consist of two reflex-loaded , custom 14-in . woofers with reinforced cone and large voice-coil Neodymium motor-structure for improved heat dissipation to reduce power compression .
The LR28 is powered and controlled by four channels of the Sentinel10 amplified loudspeaker controller . Through the integrated processing and feedback , the ALC offers LR28-specific drive processing with array-compensation , filter presets , system EQ , or phase matching .
