MQ 100L (available in black and white) is a 3 way column loudspeaker providing natural hi-fidelity sound of both speech and music, suitable for sound system having fixed loudspeakers.
The wide horizontal coverage angle (180°) and the vertical dispersion (60°) allow the correct sound reproduction in a wide space, in order to limit feedback and improve the sound directivity which is important, for instance, in halls having a long reverberation time.
The mounting accessories are included. These have been engineered to keep the column as close as possible to the wall and simplify the installation. Its tilt angle can be chosen among 0° – 5° – 10°. The 60° vertical dispersion is asymmetric: it is the difference between 20° upwards and 40° downwards. The vertical dispersion axis is in fact already angled 10° downwards, making it unnecessary to tilt the sound column excessively.

The RCF’s distributor in Greece, Kariotis Audio & Lighting have recently undertaken a large sound installation at the prestigious Balux sea club in Athens.
Mr. Kariotis Pandelis explains “ The brief was quite specific regarding the design and installation of the venue. The philosophy is designed around the idea for an audio system that could cover the different parts of the complex, thus eliminating any possible sound pollution from the other areas bordering on the Balux Club in order to deliver a clean and defined sound. Using RCF ART speakers, Kariotis Meletios and Partners designed a “surround sound” system, in which a lot of the speaker sources are placed to cover the different parts of the club eliminating the interference from the other areas. To achieve this we used a combination of RCF ART 312’s and RCF C3110’s and S8018 subwoofers”.
The finished installation comprised a large number of ART 312 two way speakers installed outdoors, while for the interior of the club RCFACUSTICA C3110’s and S8018 subwoofers have been used.

RCF delivered a complete Forum 9000 Digital conference and voting system for the Council Chamber of Bra, Italy.
The system has been installed in the main hall of the medieval palace that host the Council Chamber and it is composed by 31 microphone consoles FMS 9411-S connected to the main unit FMU 9100
. The system is also equipped with the voting and recording software and allows to project the graphic of the voting session on the LCD screens mounted on the walls of the chamber.
The main sound amplification system is composed by an AM 1122-N amplifier and MR 33T Monitor speakers. The system has been completed with a TX 1600 UHF wireless microphone and a RX 1600 UHF diversity receiver to allow speakers to move around the room.

On Sunday 21 of June, Pope Benedict XVI made a special visit in San Giovanni Rotondo, in southern Italy to pray in the Sanctuary of Saint Pio da Pietralcina. The Pope celebrated Mass and recited the Angelus in the Churchyard of San Pio da Pietralcina , where more than 50,000 worshippers gathered from all over the world. RCF’s TT+ Touring and Theatre system had been chosen to amplify the sound for the event.
Local rental company Sonika, which had organised the technical aspects of the celebrations and had also looked after many such events in past years, choose again to use the TT+ Series from RCF for this very important day. Apart from giving vast coverage, the system had to be flexible enough to amplify both the speech and the music, which was played by the Symphonic Orchestra of the Niccolò Piccinini Conservatoire in Bari.
Mr. Raffaele Coletta, owner of Sonika, commented: “Having previously worked with TT+ in a great variety of situations, I was confident of the results. The output and the coverage were excellent which allowed perfect intelligibility of the speech and an accurate and precise reproduction of the richness of the orchestra”.

UP 2161 and UP 2321 are amplifiers designed for the transmission of announcements and musical programmes with a (mic / line) ‘MAIN INPUT’ on either removable connector or XLR or RJ 45 (for quick connection of an RCF BM 3001 paging microphone through CAT5 cable) and an ‘AUX INPUT’ for music sources (e.g. CD players, tuners, etc.).
Both models have identical features, but the nominal power: UP 2161 is a 160 W amplifier; UP 2321 is a 320 W amplifier. The amplifier output is available either for low impedance loudspeakers (min. 4 Ω) or 100 – 70 V constant voltage line (for loudspeakers having 100 – 70 V transformers). The amplifiers are Class D with switching power supply; the overall weight and depth are extremely reduced plus they offer a wide audio bandwidth quality.

The new Vip Room Theatre is one of the most exclusive and elegant clubs of Paris. The world most famous DJs and music artists choose the club for special performances or exclusive showcases during their record release parties. The audio project was made by RCF in cooperation with the architect Gianni Ranaulo of Light Architecture, who conceived the club design with the speakers inserted in the walls. By using an acoustically transparent tissue, it was possible to completely hide the speakers from the audience view, while keeping the accurate and elegant aesthetics of the environment without compromising the quality of sound reproduction.
The RCF audio system, installed by Live Music, is divided in two smaller systems composed by RCFACUSTICA loudspeakers: the first one, made with C5212-W and S8028 models, is focused on the dance floor, while the second, composed by C5212-W and C3108 speakers, is a distributed system for the seats area on the upper floor. Because of the great size of the Vip Room Theatre, which extends for over 2,000 square metres on three floors, two DX4008 digital signal processors were installed to manage the loudspeakers in order to provide a uniform audio coverage and to maintain the timbre of the sound in every part of the club. Mr. Emanuele Morlini, RCF Product Specialist, completed the set up of the system.
