The major audio system installation at Pin Up, a bowling complex located in Bornheim, Germany has won the Sinus – Systems Integration Award in the “Entertainment” category at the 2009 Prolight+Sound show.
This major installation was completed by RCF offices in Germany, working in conjunction with Raum plus Schall.
In the bowling area, there is a high ambient noise level and consequently requirement for very good intelligibility, led Raum plus Schall to specify C3110 units from the Acustica range. A further number of C3110s were installed in the entrance.
Elsewhere in the complex, the need for a compact and fashionable modern look prompted Raum plus Schall to use equipment from the Monitor Q range. For example, the company specified MQ50C-S, MQ 50-S and MQ90-B units and RCF FLEXA modular amplifiers.
The Sinus Awards ceremony will take place at Prolight + Sound in Galleria 1 at 19.00 hrs on the 1st of April 2009.
On Saturday the 28th of February 2009 a great show took place in the Milan’s Dome square for the celebrations of the Ambrosiano Carnival, a special city’s variation of the traditional festive season. The massive square was packed with thousands of people gathered to assist to the event.
Airone Service managed all the technical aspect for the show using a complete RCF TT+ High Definition Touring and Theatre system.
The system was composed by TTL33-A line array modules, TTS28-A subwoofers, TT22-A two-way loudspeakers used as front fill and TT25-SMA stage monitors.
The line array modules were divided in 4 clusters: two main FOH and two smaller ones to amplify the sound or each side of the stage.
“We have been using TT+ products for a long time and we were absolutely confident that the system was the right choice for the show”, said Airone’s Fabio Pecis, ”in fact the first half of the show was dedicated to acting and cabaret so the voice dynamics were extremely important. The TT+ system worked at its best and the voice resulted clear and perfectly intelligible. Moreover, there was no feedback during the show, even when actors, equipped with head-set microphones, went in front of the stage with the main FOH system delivering a high volume output in order to cover all the vast area of the square.”
Digital processing The integrated digital processor is based on a state of the art 24 bit, floating point DSP running at 96 KHz sampling rate. The calculation capacity largely exceed the processing needs and the DSP is never pushed to the limit. Crossover and equalization of the 6 transducers, limiter, system presets: high pass, air absorption and cluster size corrections.
Digital power The TTL33-A is powered by a 750 watt switching power supply and 3 digital amplifiers: 500 watt mid-bass , 500 watt midrange and 250 watt compression driver. Very high output, extremely low distortion and natural sound . All the amplifiers and digital processing are housed in an aluminum extrusion external to the cabinet for best heat dissipation.
Compression drivers A new compression driver unit has been developed in RCF specifically for array applications. The best ratio between the size of the diaphragm and the overall diameter and the very small total size makes the ND1411-MT a unique driver for application in line on straight horns. TTL33-A houses 3 of them for perfect HF control.
Controlled mid-bass Two light and reliable neodymium 8”, in a band pass loading configuration, provides a tight and loud mid-bass. Thanks to a careful acoustic design the sensitivity in the 100 Hz region is almost double than typical, same size, designs.
High output midrange A fast and accurate horn loaded 8” takes care of the midrange frequencies. Powerful neodymium magnet, aluminum die cast basket, aluminum back can in direct contact to the rear plate for best heat dissipation.
Reliable mechanics Laser cut high quality steel bars and precision machining for an easy to use and reliable mechanics. Thanks to the very light weight of the cabinet building the cluster is very simple, fast and effortless.
RCF Prediction Software In order to assist with the set up procedures for the TTL33-A Line Array System, RCF has developed a complete prediction software package. The software enables a complete two dimensional simulation of the behaviour of the TTL33-A cabinets and also suggests the correct subwoofer combinations. The system curvature angles and the sound projection data are computed with maximum sound pressure levels for the given building design originally inputted. The software will allow simulations up to a maximum of sixteen TTL33-A mid-high cabinets. There is also a rigging menu which provides data for weight, centre of gravity and height of the array configuration. Rigging points and rigging hardware configurations are also computed.  
The height of the voice coil has been specifically designed to improve the excursion and linearity at very low frequencies.
The LF21N451 uses a special RCF developed carbon fibre + nylon + cellulose composite pulp which reinforces and improves the rigidity of the cone structure. The new pulp and the large triple roll surround along double silicon spider system ensure excellent control and makes the cone resistant to deformation caused by very large displacements and pressure created by the transducer’s high excursion behaviour.
A fully optimised T-pole design generate the minimum amount of flux modulation. The dual-forced air venting system provides a very efficient voice coil ventilation to minimize the power compression.
The LF21N451 is ideal in applications where light weight, very high BL and power handling are required. It is especially used for touring, perfect for powerful lows in horn loaded sub bass system or reflex designs.
The P6215 is a weatherproof full range, wide-dispersion, coaxial two way loudspeaker system offering substantial power and efficiency for a variety of professional indoor or outdoor applications.
The high-frequency section is a constant directivity CMD horn loaded to a 1.4” RCF Precision Neodymium compression driver with a 2.5” diaphragm assembly for smooth, wide dispersion. The low-frequency transducer is a 15” woofer with a 3.5” voice coil. The P6215 is a dedicated high power version for very high output and longer throw applications. The cabinet is a single piece rotational moulded in medium density polyethylene, fully UV protected.The cabinet is equipped with 12 x M 10 brass inserts, a stainless steel U-Bracket and pair of spacers for 90° mounting. The front logo is in aluminium and rotatable. The grille is in custom perforated aluminium with open-cell fibres and water repellent woven fabric backing.

Oktava, RCF’s distributor in Croatia, working closely with RCF’s Systems Engineering Department, have designed and installed a complete new audio system for the Zadar sports arena. The system was specially conceived to be extremely compact and controls and distributes audio in every part of the arena. RCF TT+ loudspeakers were chosen for the playing and the seating areas because of their high power and sound definition. TT25-A loudspeakers were installed on the round structure above the parterre, amplifying the sound towards the seats while TT22-A models were used for the playing area. An MX1822 mixer manages the audio signals sent to the loudspeakers.
RCF PL60 Ceiling speakers have been installed in all the other areas – locker rooms, corridors, pressroom, restaurant and VIP room – using the A1360 mounting hardware. On the external parts of the building and near the main doors DM61 compact two-way speakers proved to be the best solution thanks to their IP55 protection grade, which makes them the ideal solution for outdoor installations. All the installation is controlled by a DXT7000 a digital multi channel active matrix system, composed by MU7100 master units connected to LT7208 units with transformers and constant voltage outputs. In the control room a single paging/alarm BM7806 console has been installed, while a number of SV7982 Remote Program/Leven Control Devices and LI7903 Remote Input and Control Devices have been distributed in the other areas of the building. One of the DXT7000 system exits has been dedicated to the audio system of the playing area with priority for particular announces or alarm messages. Usually this part of the building is served by a local system set at low priority for the communications of the speaker as team hymns, team line up, music, advertising and standard announces.
Daniele Torelli, RCF Audio System Specialist, commented:” we are very happy for the result of this installation and for the cooperation with Oktava. Being almost “invisible” in their location in the rounded bridge over the playground the TT+ speakers provide a complete high quality audio coverage of the entire main arena. In the other areas” he continued, ”thanks to the DXT 7000 System we were able to contain the control units and the amplifiers in a small rack space allowing a simple and quick set up of the system”.
