RCF partners, Dipsonic, have equipped a number of beach rescue centres on the north coast of France with HD6045EN fibreglass long-throw multicell horns, which are designed to withstand the most adverse weather conditions.
Le Touquet-Paris-Plage is the highest profile resort to receive the rescue voice application but others nearby include Stella Plage, Merlimont Plage and Sainte-Cécile Plage. The work was commissioned by Citeos, VINCI Energies’ Lighting and Urban Equipment brand, and the RCF solution was specified by M. Lefebvre from locally-based Dipsonic. His selection was based on the fact that the HD6045EN, rated at 133dB@1m, offered the highest SPL available for such a horn enclosure.
In terms of design, two of these horns are pole-mounted and set side by side in a ‘V’ configuration, facing out in front of the central beach. At Sainte-Cécile they are directly fixed on the Rescue Centre wall itself.
At Le Touquet-Paris-Plage an additional 25 RCF HD3216/T compact, lightweight and watertight horn speakers, will complete the installation along the 500-metre long sea wall, to increase the paging coverage at medium throw distance. The horns are powered from RCF’s UP 8000 series amplifiers, suitable for 70V/100V applications via the PR4093 9-in/3-out pre-amp, which has been purpose designed to provide a flexible solution for paging and music application in PA systems of this nature.
All the RCF Resort Centre installations have replaced previous voice evacuation systems.


Alan Parsons and his band were back in Germany for 13 dates throughout the country in May.

During Infocomm, RCF will showcase its latest innovations in sound reproduction and amplification. The RCF’s new product line will feature improvements, design upgrades and exciting new technologies, like the new FiRPHASE processing, on-board on an extended range of loudspeakers.

Hockeycomplex ‘Oosterplas’, Hertogenbosch (Netherlands)- The field hockey club which is also known as HC Den Bosch, recently underwent a complete new sound system installation, turning to RCF for the solution. RCF’s weatherproof IP55-rated P-series is no stranger to stadia and arenas throughout the world and has frequently been the architectural choice both for indoor installations in tough environments as well as outdoor applications such as stadiums and arenas.
With three sides of the field open, all 20 of the P 3115-T, run 100V line, are distributed evenly along the roof of the single tribune, which also includes a central cluster. The full range, wide-dispersion, coaxial two-way loudspeaker system provides substantial power and efficiency. The HF section is a constant directivity CMD horn loaded to a 1” RCF Precision compression driver with a 1.5” diaphragm assembly. The LF transducer is a 15” woofer with 2.5” voice coil and the selectable line transformer makes is suitable for 70-100 volt applications.
Commenting on the installation, Henri van Bergen, of RCF Netherlands, stated: “The most important consideration in stadiums like these is the Speech Transmission Index (STI), as well as fact the that the system must also sound great with music.
“The client realised, during the final stages of decision making, that the RCF P-series gave them the best of both worlds.”
JANDAKOT (PERTH), AUSTRALIA: After operating from hired premises for many years, the board at Good Success Church (formerly Mighty Living Waters Life Fellowship) made the decision to develop a permanent home. A new building in Jandakot, south of Perth was chosen and so the journey began.
The committee at Good Success Church contacted AVL consultant Rob Scott of Trans Media Alliance (TMA). Rob’s business is reasonably unique in that Rob had spent many years in the AVL industry and many as a committed church member. Rob started life as a professional musician and these credentials have given him the background to consult and design audio, lighting,and vision systems for churches, large auditoriums and performing arts centres.
Good Success Church required a sound and lighting system appropriate for dynamic live services which at the same time were suitable for television program recording and live media projection. Five companies were invited to tender on the TMA specifications, which Kosmic Sound and Lighting won due to price, experience and professionalism.
Kosmic worked closely with Group Technologies to present a tender-winning speaker system for the building which is 30 metres wide yet only 20 metres deep. The RCF HDL 20a active line array system was chosen. Each hang consisted of three full-range line array elements coupled with additional LF on the ground. Additionally,two boxes of HDL10a were used as centre fills. A Xilica Uno processor was used to process the system. Xilica’s high audio quality and powerful DSP platform allowed for everything from simple system tuning to pre-set system configurations depending on the size and scope of any event in the space.
TMA consulted with both the architect and acoustic consultants to match the room acoustics to the performance of the RCF system. Roof heights were changed along with a custom design for the walls, ceiling panels and diffusers. The resulting room sound is spectacular.
“It makes such a difference to the outcome when I am consulted before the project is built.” Rob Scott TMA
We found the Kosmic team professional and flexible to work with during the building and fitout process…. Kosmic also provided training and after completion support for transition to the new system. The result achieved with the acoustic treatments and audio system are ideal “ Pastor Rajan, Snr Pastor, Good Success Church.
Recognising that LED technology has reached a stage where it's possible to present a modern professional stage lighting system without dimmers and tungsten fittings, TMA were able to design a lighting system suitable for live performance, television recording and multimedia projections while reducing ongoing power operating costs.
“This is an exceptionally professional AVL integrated system installation, indeed a reference model for the new modern systems using line array and LED technology. Congratulations to Good Success Church for your foresight, and Kosmic for your professionalism” Rob Scott, Consultant
The new Audio Academy, dedicated to the culture of sound, will be situated in a new building at the RCF headquarters in Reggio Emilia. Set on pitched floor, and with 46 upholstered seats, the classroom has also been acoustically treated, while a natural/artificial mixed lighting system provides maximum comfort. Finally, the classroom is equipped with audio-video systems and includes a spacious foyer for reception and refreshments.
RCF Audio Academy will continue the series of state-of-the-art seminars hosted by the RCF product specialists, teachers and engineers both in the new HQ and laboratories. Since 2010, 127 courses have been organized, welcoming more than 2,200 participants, 381 indoor product demos and 374 outdoor.
The new venue will also host the Sound-Engineering University Course, organized by the Department of Science and Methods of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, in collaboration with RCF, now in its sixth edition.
In professional fields such as audio recording and live, through to commercial audio and integrated systems, a complete and thorough knowledge of the subject is the most effective way to use technology at its best. Thanks to its many achievements and strong technical pedigree, RCF has contributed in large part to the history and development of sound. Today, after nearly 70 years, RCF continues to play a major role in the hi-tech advancements of the international electroacoustic industry. Since 1949 this knowledge sharing has been promoted, thanks to the experience and expertise of our engineers in training, seminars, and demos, at the same time providing enormous internal support to help the customer in the design of complex systems.
The topics of the courses embrace all the areas of audio signal processing and amplification. The updated list is available by clicking here or accessing the Education section of the site
Uno de los edificios más emblemáticos de Newcastle-upon-Tyne, el Palacio de las Artes, ha sido equipado con un sistema HDL20-A de la serie D Line de RCF. Los proveedores técnicos locales de la empresa Nitelites han intermediado directamente con los nuevos inquilinos, la fábrica de cerveza Wylam. La Sala Principal del Palacio de las Artes, que es el último edificio conservado de la feria North East Coast Exhibition de 1929, fue inaugurada por el Príncipe de Gales (que posteriormente se convertiría en Eduardo VIII) en el parque de la exposición, reformado recientemente. La fábrica de cervezas Wylam ha trasladado su cuartel general y ha convertido el monumento en una fábrica de cervezas plenamente operativa y en un espacio para eventos, después de estar prácticamente abandonado durante un período de diez años. En el pasado, se utilizó como museo de la ciencia y museo de vehículos militares. La Sala Principal acoge numerosos eventos para los cuales se requería un sistema de audio de vanguardia: un mercado de cerveceros, música en vivo (entre ellos, el número 1 en la lista de álbumes más vendidos, Michael Kiwanuka), eventos gastronómicos, bodas y eventos empresariales, con una capacidad máxima de 800 personas de pie.
El director de eventos y copropietario de la fábrica de cervezas, Dave Stone, famoso promotor de la escena musical local, implicó en el proyecto a Nitelites. «Les confiamos la creación de una instalación adecuada para la amplia gama de eventos que vamos a celebrar», ha declarado. Stone ya conocía la calidad de los productos de RCF, puesto que había tenido experiencia con el fabricante italiano en otros locales donde había trabajado anteriormente. Sabía también que el stock de Nitelites cuenta con una buena visibilidad entre los ingenieros de sonido y puede completarse con otros productos si fuera necesario.
El director de Nitelites y diseñador de sistemas de audio, Andy Magee, reconoció enseguida el desafío que presenta la estructura dotada con una cúpula de vidrio, por el problema de la fuga de sonido hacia el exterior y una fuerte reverberación interna. «Inicialmente, el estudio preliminar limitaba considerablemente el nivel de presión sonora, pero hemos conseguido demostrar la nitidez del HDL20-A y nuestra capacidad para redirigir la energía hacia la pista, por lo cual nos ha resultado posible elevar el límite a 100 dB». Un empujón posterior lo ha proporcionado el modelo virtual del entorno creado con EASE Focus 3.
Magee ha añadido que la decisión de elegir este sistema tan vendido, con seis elementos colgados en cada lado, ha sido muy fácil, sobre todo gracias al patrón de dispersión de 100° x 15°. «El retorno de la inversión es muy elevado y la puesta en funcionamiento resulta muy fácil y rápida», ha afirmado. Bajo el proscenio se han colocado cinco potentes subwoofer TTS36-A, con dos woofer de neodimio de 18”. Además, se han utilizado seis RCF NX15-SMA como monitores de escenario.
Andy Magee ha destacado también otras características del sistema. «La fábrica de cervezas no dispone de un ingeniero de sonido a tiempo completo, sino que cuenta con ingenieros freelance que, por lo general, ya conocen el sistema. El hecho de que el HDL20-A esté equipado con distintos botones para activar instrumentos de corrección les permite modificar las frecuencias graves y el intervalo de medios como deseen». También ha comentado que el soft touch filter y los controles de ecualización son fáciles de entender. A modo de conclusión, el responsable de Nitelites afirma que «existen muchas dinámicas en el sistema que permiten que el cliente afronte una amplia gama de eventos. Al mismo tiempo, hemos conseguido mantener la reflexión absolutamente al mínimo». Dave Stone coincide en esta apreciación. «No hemos podido tratar la sala para mejorar la acústica, pero Nitelites ha dado en el clavo con el sistema RCF. Hemos recibido una respuesta estupenda y el sistema ha demostrado adaptarse muy bien a distintos escenarios y acontecimientos»
