Pair it Wireless, with a Touch

The speaker can be used alone, connected to another ART, or even connected to a subwoofer. Bring out the best sound of your system with a 5-band equalizer, output delay and a built-in digital crossover with presets. You can connect two ART 9-AX units via wireless for stereo or dual mono configurations. Turn on your mobile device and connect it to your ART 9-AX for Bluetooth ® audio streaming and remote control for both single and dual paired speakers.

Toolbox For Pro Users

With Advanced control mode, ART 9-AX is the problem-solving speaker you want to bring on the road.

Advanced Features for Professional Users

The internal mixer disentangles all your routing needs and an internal crossover helps you use the speaker with any subwoofer. An internal 5-band parametric EQ lets you manage boomy spaces or modal resonances, while the output delay keeps your sound always in time. Wireless pairing to another ART 9-AX is a handy tool when you have physical constraints and can't run signal cables.

Set your RCF SUBs in seconds

With internal ready-to-use presets for RCF subwoofers, your sound system is perfectly aligned and ready for the show in a few steps.

Connect your sub to ART 9-AX, select the speaker preset on the menu and you are ready to play.

Internal output delay

When you connect many speakers over a long distance, you want to hear the sound coming from the same source. By using internal delays, your sound system will always be on time (and phase) to the ears of your audience.

2100 W: the most powerful wireless Bluetooth® speaker

ART 9-AX is the most powerful speaker on the market, also when connected wireless. 

The Class 1 Bluetooth® connection can receive 2-channel audio streaming and provides a stereo or dual mono output for pairing with AX-featured RCF speakers. We tested over 100 meters (328 feet) free-field operability. Enjoy the convenience of Bluetooth® connection when you have architectural constraints, pedestrian areas, or inaccessible signal connections.

Power that moves

The most powerful amplifier in its class. RCF's improvements in transducer design make them stronger and powerful, so the amplifier follows the evolution. With 2100 Watts of power, the 2-channel ART 9 Class-D amplifier is 50% more powerful than previous models, able to manage extremely high sound pressure levels with an ultra-fast attack, realistic transient response, and very low heat loss. ART 9 is very energy-efficient so there is no need for a cooling fan - the amplifier is attached to a solid aluminum heat exchanger in the back of the unit - with no moving parts. Being physically connected with the internal frame, the amplifier is firm and solid within the cabinet. The input circuit features a new low distortion design with an advanced safety limiter, maintaining the true character of the input signal at all levels. All ART 9 amplifiers are designed according to EN62368-1 for maximum safety and present a Switch Mode Power Supply section joining high-efficiency with minimum weight.

Superior transducers

Lightweight and powerful, RCF drivers are a true reference for high performance. All transducers and components of the ART 9 Series are designed and manufactured by RCF.

High frequencies

The new 1.75" compression driver voice-coil design with Polyimide-Kapton dome features a new bonding technology and reinforced ribs making it 10 times more durable than previous designs. The redesigned phase plug increases sound clarity, enhancing transient response and improving coupling with the low-frequency transducer.

Low frequencies

Low-frequency transducer design gains more stability over higher currents, with less distortion, and is highly efficient in terms of heat dissipation. RCF quality control is very strict. Our woofers are tested with a 200 hours continuous signal to stress the transducer at extreme levels. Only the best woofer design can fit ART 9.

Bring ART with you

ART 9 can operate as either the main system or as a floor monitor. This flexibility makes it a smart choice for a wide range of live sound applications. The cabinet is easy to carry, with ergonomic handles on both sides and the top. The lower side includes a steel pole support for mounting on a stand or subwoofer pole. Each model can also be flown, wall- or truss-mounted using multiple M10 rigging points and special accessories. From molding to the final texture, ART 9 offers maximum strength for intensive use on the road, also perfect for fixed installation.

A new cabinet design

A professional appearance of an ART 9 cabinet is ideal for live events or installed applications. The sleek cabinet uses a special polypropylene composite material with a radically new construction concept. The grille cover is heavy-duty steel protecting both transducers and vented ports. The purpose-designed M-brace connects the four internal sides of the cabinet and amplifier, preventing any deformation for a completely inert body, with augmented acoustical damping even at maximum volume settings. It also performs as a reinforcement structure, for greater resistance to mechanical stress.

True Resistive Waveguide

Responsive Image
The advanced design of ART9 lies within the housing of the speaker. The new True Resistive Waveguide is the result of several refinements in both the transducers' and the vented ports' design with Finite Element Analysis, and constant measurement in RCF anechoic chambers. Thanks to FiRPHASE technology, the new shape, and the placement of the ports, the speaker now acts as a single ideal source for a perfect sound image. Acoustically, the TRW waveguide mimics a resonance-free pure resistive load reducing the high-frequency distortion of a classic horn. With its asymmetrical sound shaping, the coverage angle of the waveguide provides constant directivity to the entire listening area and improved stereo panorama.

When searching for an extended bass with enhanced performance, RCF engineers found a way to remove the high-pass filter, replacing it with a forward-thinking approach. Introducing BMC (Bass Motion Control), the newly advanced woofer excursion management feature. Speakers with BMC can handle the lowest audible frequencies without affecting the woofer stability, with extended linearity and better sound integrity.


The BMC method works by creating a complete map of the dynamic behavior of the woofer, to generate a custom algorithm that only limits over-excursions. This gives total freedom of signal reproduction to the transducer. When high-pass filters normally protect the woofer motion from becoming destructive, but change the phase behavior, the new BMC algorithm breaks conventional rule. In combination with FiRPHASE technology, ART 9 & NX 9 have a level of DSP audio performance never achieved in this range of speakers.

New perspective on linearity

RCF speakers are designed using a proprietary and advanced digital FiR technology, conceived to deliver transparent sound, absolute clarity, and perfect imaging to the listener. The special FiRPHASE filters allow for coherent distribution of sound for all listeners without phase distortions, ensuring minimum latencies in the system.
