RCF ART 500-A is a 2 way active system offering substantial power for a
variety of professional applications that include primary sound reinforcement
and supplementary fill for larger systems. It integrates a high power 500 Watt
amplifier, a complete electronic processor section and a premium RCF low
distortion, high power transducer. The result is a compact, high power accurate
system, unique in his class for clarity and low distortion.
The 15" inch woofer, thanks to its 3" edge wound aluminium coil and a massive magnetic structure guarantee a fast and accurate midbass frequency range a powerful bass reproduction.
The compression driver uses a 0.05 mm titanium dome featuring a vented suspension and is powered from a massive high flux ceramic magnet and an edge wound 75 mm aluminium voice coil. This top class driver offers a high output, transparent midrange sound and clarity in high frequencies reproduction. The polynomial horn features a ring-mode suppression design to deliver controlled coverage at the highest sonic purity.
A 2 step class H Amplifier design is used to power the low frequencies and the compression driver amplifier is a powerful and clear class AB design.
The input section offers an XLR input connector that is switchable from microphone to line levels. A master volume control and a useful XLR loopthrough link guarantee the best versatility. The processor section includes active crossover, system equalization, transducer phase alignment, limiter and protection functions.
All components are housed in a rigid polypropylene composite enclosure that is further reinforced with two internal 15 mm thick plywood panels. The woofer is protected by a powder coated, metal grille. The cabinet features four M10 threaded fly points, a 35 mm pole mount adaptor and two side handles.
