Tour Sound

Thinking Out of the Box, and Into The Rack

XPS shines when used in touring applications and live events from medium to very large capacity. Paired with RCF high-powered passive speakers, XPS gives a new perspective in sound system management. The system designer now has complete flexibility in choosing powered, or externally amplified speakers, balancing portability, weight, ease of installation, cabling, fast setup speed, and complete remote management, via RDNet.

Power to Change Everything

Four-Channel Modular Amplifier

XPS 16K provides extreme power density with 4 x 4000 W continuous power outputs in 2 RU space for both touring and installed sound systems. The unit features 4 analog and digital AES/EBU inputs/outputs, a Dante Network ready design, and complete signal processing, tuning, and routing capability all at 96 kHz. Redundancy and full scalability are granted by the advanced and modular design of the circuitry. A complete set of RCF speaker presets is available, with powerful signal processing for complete system tuning.

CONTINUOUS POWER OUTPUTS

New Attitude in Sound Management

XPS 16K supports the RCF philosophy with a power-agnostic approach, where the sound system engineer has complete freedom in choosing powered, or externally amplified, modules for their system. XPS 16K offers a new solution for balancing portability, weight, ease of installation, cabling, fast setup speed, and complete remote management of each connected device, via RDNet.

Power You Can Trust

RCF’s effort in assisting both installers and sound providers with the best audio technology and clear, powerful sound is at the core of the company’s beliefs. Since 1949, providing both power amplifiers and transducers to the professional market, the RCF experience marks a new milestone with XPS 16K.
