The Business Music Solutions series has been designed for different volume level and equalisation needs
RCF has launched its new Business Music Solutions series to provide a complete and matched family of systems with full processing power that combine to form commercial audio systems for use in background and foreground music applications. The series comprises the compact DMA (digital mixing amplifiers) and DPA (digital power amplifiers), which can drive the WMR (wall monitor speakers) or CMR (ceiling monitors) products. Completing the lineup are the RC 401 remote control and BM 404 paging console.
The Business Music Solutions series is designed with a flexible and scalable architecture to facilitate the distribution of different audio channels in environments with different volume level and equalisation needs.
The WMR and CMR models are two-way speakers featuring either 4-, 5- or 6-inch transducers, as well as a 1-inch dome tweeter. The versions available include the CMR 60, CMR 50 and CMR 40, and the WMR 60, WMR 50 and WMR 40. They are all available with and without 100V/70V line transformers. A T suffix indicates a Transformer version, W represents Wide and TW is used for both.
There are two DMA models: the DMA 82 (dual 80W) and DMA 162 (dual 160W). These digital mixing amplifiers provide a DSP platform that allows specific speaker presets to be loaded. Inputs include gain (mono/stereo), gain selection (mic/line), a three-band graphic equaliser, a high-pass filter and compressor. The outputs included are gain (mono/stereo), a fine-setting high-pass filter, a bass enhancer and speaker presets. Each preset includes FiR filters, high-pass, five parametric EQs and high shelf. DMA units can distribute four channels of audio to satellite DPA units via a single Cat-5 cable.
Possessing on-board signal processing, the DPA 162 satellite amplifiers can reportedly increase the installed power and build multi-room architecture after receiving processed audio signals from the four-channel bus, with local stereo input alternative. Routing to power outputs can be affected with the DIP switch and configuration can be carried out using RDNet, as can configuration of the DMA units.
Each DPA unit can receive two mono or a single stereo channel from the four-channel audio bus, with a local stereo input as an alternative. It also has a line output for a subwoofer.
The RC 401 remote control and BM 404 paging console can be used with the DMA units. The RC 401 offers volume control and source select, while the BM 404 can manage up to four zones, with up to four paging consoles connected in a daisy-chain.
RCF has also expanded its TT 4-A series with the TTW 4-A, a point source speaker module. It is a wide directivity, active, two-way speaker designed for indoor and outdoor events in small- and medium-sized venues.
