May 24, 2006 3:16 PM
Renkus-Heinz will showcase its CF/CFX series of high-value, high-performance loudspeakers at InfoComm 2006 with a live demonstration in Demo Room W-203A. The self-powered CF series incorporates the company’s new PF-1 intelligent digital amplifier, while the CFX series is designed for use with external amplifiers.
The CF/CFX series brings world-renowned Renkus-Heinz innovations, along with the brand’s natural, balanced sonic performance, to a lower price point. Built to the company’s stringent quality standards using the finest components and materials, each CF/CFX series loudspeaker is rigorously inspected before shipping. To achieve cost efficiency, the CF/CFX series uses simpler cabinet designs and offers fewer options than the product lines that have established Renkus-Heinz as a world leader in loudspeaker technology.
The CF/CFX series includes six products.
There are four two-way general-purpose trapezoidal full-range cabinets—the CF/CFX61 (two-way with a 6in. LF driver, 150×60 degree dispersion), CF/CFX81 (two-way with 8in., 150×60 degree dispersion), CF/CFX121 (two-way with 12in., 90×60 degree dispersion), and CF/CFX151 (two-way with 15in., 90×40 degree dispersion). The CF/CFX121M is a two-way cabinet with a 12in. woofer in a classic sloped-front cabinet that is ideal for monitor applications. All five full range systems feature high-quality compression drivers mounted on unique rotatable Renkus-Heinz Complex Conic horns. The CF/CFX18S single 18in. direct radiating subwoofer completes the lineup, crossing over at 100Hz and extending sub-bass response down to a hefty 35Hz.
The CF/CFX series is designed with multi-purpose hardware that makes it equally suitable for portable PA use or permanent installation. Handles, pole-mount socket, six-point universal mounting hardware (UMH), and U bracket points are standard (not all of the hardware is included on all cabinets). The CF series self-powered loudspeakers have looping XLR input/throughputs, while the externally powered CFX series has looping SpeakOn connectors as well as screw-type barrier strip terminals.
The CF series brings the convenience and efficiency of fully integrated self-powered systems design to budget-constrained applications with a newly design Intelligent Digital Amplifier, the PF-1. A switching power supply and integrated Speaker Specific Processing capabilities make the PF-1 ideal for use inside a loudspeaker cabinet: It is light in weight and 93 percent efficient, eliminating the need for a cooling fan.
“Renkus-Heinz loudspeaker systems have always been designed to produce extraordinary sound quality,” says David Rahn, Renkus-Heinz U.S. national sales manager. “Like our dealers and consultants, we work with sound for a living, and like them, we enjoy our work a lot more when our tools are fun to listen to. With the CF/CFX series, we’ve been able to bring Renkus-Heinz quality and reliability to price points that fit ‘everyday’ applications.”
