Sistemi di amplificazione composti da diffusori della Serie P di RCF sono stati scelti per sonorizzare parte del St. Andrew’s Ground e del Britannia Stadium, rispettivamente stadi del Birmingham City FC e dello Stoke City FC.
Il St. Andrew’s Ground di Birmingham è stato inaugurato nel 1906 e le recenti ristrutturazioni hanno incluso un rinnovamento dell’impianto di amplificazione sonora che ad oggi deve coprire in maniera uniforme e con un elevato grado di intelligibilità ben 30.000 posti a sedere.
Grazie all’elevata resistenza alle intemperie (grado di protezione IP55), alla grande copertura, potenza e qualità sonora i diffusori P3115-T sono stati ritenuti i più idonei per l’amplificazione di diverse zone delle tribune. In aggiunta sono stati installati modelli P2110-T per amplificare il suono in alcune delle aree dietro alle porte del campo da gioco.
Inaugurato nel 1997, il Britannia Stadium di Stoke on Trent può ospitare fino a 28.400 spettatori a sedere. Anche per questa importante struttura sportiva sono stati scelti i modelli P3115-T e P2110-T in configurazione cluster per l’amplificazione di parte delle tribune.
RCF ha al suo interno un completo ufficio progettazione di sistemi internazionale composto da ingegneri acustici ed elettronici che lavorano a stretto contatto per fornire quotazioni per progetti per ogni tipologia di sistema in ogni parte del mondo.
Un recente esempio di questa attività è lo stadio realizzato nel governatorato di Abyan nello Yemen dove RCF, in collaborazione con il distributore Oasis Enterprises LLC, ha realizzato il completo impianto di amplificazione.
Per le tribune, il campo da gioco e l’esterno dello stadio sono stati scelti modelli P6215 impermeabili che garantiscono alti livelli di pressione sonora con un ampia e morbida diffusione in spazi medio-grandi.
L’impianto è stato completato dal sistema di gestione RX4000, certificato EN60849, che permette di controllare gli annunci e la diffusione musicale anche per situazioni di emergenza ed evacuazione.
A complete digital system for conference and voting Forum 9000, including FMS 9411-S microphone consoles, has been installed in the palace of the Supreme Court of Appeal in Rome.
In addition to the conference system, also the sound reinforcement system has been made with RCF products. The amplification system is composed by HC 1600 power amplifiers, managed by a DX 4008 digital sound processor, and a significant number of CW 3108 and CS 6520 speakers.
TX 1600 wireless microphones has been provided to allow speakers to talk while moving around the room.

Woofers and Compression Drivers are precision built in our factory in Reggio Emilia, Italy, taking advantage of RCF’s superior moulding, assembly technologies and a wealth of professional knowledge and experience dedicated to achieving extremely high standards.
The look of the ART 4 Series mirrors the functionality and aggressive design of the ART 7 Series, whilst the newly designed 400 W digital amplifi ers (300 W for the low frequencies and 100 for the compression driver) coupled with the unique RCF transducers technology make the ART 4 Series a cutting edge product, suitable for any portable sound reinforcement applications.

Overlooking the breathtaking skyline of Kuala Lumpur, this club is heavily inspired by the architecture of the great Russian museums and imperial palaces. Dashes of maroon and a sprinkle of gold can be seen radiating from everywhere inside the club. It is truly a magnificent feast for the senses and an ultimate expression of contemporary architectural.
Located on the rooftop of Lot 10 shopping center and set amidst lush greenery of overhanging ferns and emerging foliage and a variety of tropical plants, this club is quickly emerging as one of the top and exclusive club in Kuala Lumpur.
Mr. Ramesh Krishna, the Operations Manager of Rootz, is quick to point out its exclusivity. “What sets our club different from the others is the fact that we embrace a healthy lifestyle.

Utilizing an RCF system is indeed a good decision for this premise. “When I choose a system, I look for durability and also superior sound quality. A good system must be able to lasts significantly long. Thus, both durability and stability are the integral factors in influencing my selection. Of course, a clear and perfect sound quality is a must-have in the system as well. I’m glad RCF is able to fulfill all these requirements.”

Dublin based Integrator AVL Systems have completed the installation of a complete RCF sound system for the Club D’Ville in Charlestown, Ireland.
Pete Williams (one of the partners in AVL) explains:‘’My role is not as simple as just installing. I am asked to conceptually design and integrate sound and lighting as part of a theme and a direction. Quite often venue owners need this closer assistance from us’’. ‘’With Club D’Ville the scene is a gothic red and black colour scheme with a feature back bar providing a focus for the two tiered venue. Technology – wise, the install is energetic but directionally zoned so that the intensity is lower in the peripheral areas than on the dance floor’’.
RCF Acustica C5215 Full Range Speakers are positioned around the dance floor, with a formidable collection of RCF Acustica S8018 Sub Bass Speakers. In addition RCF Acustica C3110 Two Way Speaker Systems are positioned throughout the venue for infill in the peripheral areas.
Manager Ciaran Young’s claim ‘’Dee Jays and Clubbers alike are totally impressed with our sound system’’. Commenting on the finished club, Ciaran reveals: ‘’ I wanted something that would blow everyone’s minds in Charlestown. There was a nightclub here and it was 10 or 15 years old, which had lost its pizzazz, so I wanted something that people would walk into and go ‘Wow this is amazing’ from both Sound and Lighting. AVL certainly delivered this and more’’.
Near Les Champs Elysees and The Arch of Triumph in Paris, La Villa restaurant is an exclusive place to have dinner, cocktails in a stylish and elegant atmosphere.
Sonomax provided and installed the complete new sound system for the building using RCF Acustica full range, wide dispersion two-way C5215-W speakers.
Sonomax opted for the white version of the C5215-W to match the light and elegant décor of the rooms.
As Part of the Pontiff‘s recent visit to the Czech Republic, the Pope celebrated mass in Brno — the Czech Republic’s second largest city — in front of a crowd of 120,000 (which included the Czech President, Václav Klaus). Audioblue provided a large RCF line array rig for the event, which was held close to Brno - Tuřany airport, with the company‘s Tomáš Barták handling all mixing duties.
The system was designed around two stages — the main one for the Pope, the satellite stage for the musicians — and the primary system comprised four ground stacks of three RCF TTL33-A enclosures, specifically for the seated VIP zone at the front. As Tomáš Barták explained, “There was no opportunity to hang the line arrays due to the architectural requirements of the main stage, and restrictions placed by TV camera sightlines.”
There were three delay zones set along the coverage area, with two towers of ten TTL33-A and two towers of six TTL33-A respectively providing coverage at the second and third delay points.
Further TT Series speakers were used for stage monitoring — with a pair of TT08-A at the altar, discreetly hidden behind the floor grilles, and a further eight TT25-SMA’s providing reference monitors for the musicians.
Acoustic & Lighting System, RCF distributor in Malaysia, with Rental Company RetroAve, installed a complete RCF audio system for the entire building.

The newly-opened Hard Rock Hotel in Penang is practically a living museum of rock memorabilia. Rock legends and music icons are celebrated and their unforgettable tunes are played throughout the entire venue at all time.
Located by the breathtaking seaside on the coast of Batu Ferringhi, this 250-room hotel also houses the world famous Hard Rock Café, an all-day dining restaurant known as Starz Diner, a VIP lounge (appropriately named the King’s Lounge), a multi-purpose ballroom and a luxuriously stretched swimming pool.
While music is prominently referred to as its “heart and soul”, the whole sound system can be considered the hotel integral “spine and backbone”. Without it, the whole Hard Rock experience cannot be channelled out symbolically to its guests. Thus, it is integral for them to maintain and develop a good system to complete and deliver the whole Hard Rock experience.
“RCF sounds really nice and it is perfectly suitable for our hotel”, explains Mr. John Primmer, Hard Rock Hotel General Manager, “our sound and audio consultant from Bali, Vision One, recommended RCF to us. Once we tested the system, we knew that RCF is the one. With RCF, there is definitely no compromise in quality. Now, RCF is installed practically everywhere in this hotel”.
In the exclusive King’s Lounge, a different type of RCF system is installed. “There’s this amazing tiny speaker by RCF. This impressive tiny fellow can give quite a dispersion and good sound” With depth of 104 mm and width of 104 mm, the RCF HS 1026W can easily be mistaken as a ceiling ventilation hole. Mr. Sridevan Sriniwass, the Director of RetroAve (Rental partner of Acoustic & Lighting System), rained praises on it as well. “At the end of the day, we need to get the right kind of system in places for what is required. The HS 1026W is neat and lightweight. This coincides beautifully with the exquisite nature of the lounge”.
In the prominent Hard Rock Café, RCF Acustica Series were installed. Utilizing both the C 5215-W and C 3108 speakers, Hard Rock Café will never be short of power and performance. Usually a live band will perform there every night to live up the atmosphere of the entire dining experience.
In addition, the double storey café also houses the stylishly rocking souvenir shop, RockShop for guests to purchase a piece of tangible Hard Rock memory.
For the vast and spacious hotel lobby area, the powerful MQ 50C ceiling speakers were installed. Facing the beach and sea, the hotel lobby is also the perfect premise for concerts or showcases to be held. Abundant number of MQ 80 P speakers was installed around the pool area to provide soothing tune for guests to rejuvenate by the pool side. “The sound system complements the acoustic sound really well. It really brings out the tune and enlivens the entire atmosphere”.
The whole audio system integration took about a year to complete.
In a hotel where rhythm is its main heartbeat, one cannot help but wonder what will happen to a world without music. It is difficult to envision the world today if influential masterpiece like “Imagine”, “Bridge Over Troubled Water” or “Born to Run” were not recorded. They said, music is what feelings sound like. Judging by that phrase, I can “hear” the guests in Hard Rock Hotel smiling from their heart and having a time of their life.
