RCF IS ESTABLISHED
In 1949, its three founders had a bold vision based on technology that was considered a niche at the time. RCF was founded to produce OEM speakers and microphones for international companies, as well as selling them under its own brand.
In the 50’s the activity evolved in the development of an extensive line of public address products as well as the design and manufacturing of transducers for the professional market.
TRANSDUCERS RESEARCH AND DESIGN
Many international loudspeaker pioneers founded RCF to be one of the most reliable, high-powered transducers to use in their speaker designs. A range of 12-, 15- and 18-inch loudspeakers became the backbone of the company’s catalog.
RCF entered into the Hi-Fi Home speaker market, developing a very successful line of cabinets and amplifiers. The BR 40 was a lasting product in the market for several decades.
The product offering was expanding and the international sales network had intensified. A bold line of car speakers made with carbon fiber was developed.
RCF entered the professional speaker market with it's own brand, rather than only providing transducers to other speaker companies.
The ART 300-A was a milestone in the market. It was one of the very first portable, composite material loudspeakers, with exceptional sound quality.
