RCF NX Series5 October 2010
What is it?A pair of coaxial monitors for stage use, incorporating newly-designed neodymium transducers. DetailsThe NX 10-SMA and the NX 12-SMA are active, coaxial designs said to produce zero feedback due to a coherent single spherical wave front with “perfect” dispersion control for use in any position. Both the new transducers are equipped with a new hyper-vented basket and magnetic assembly offering enhanced heat dissipation and lower power compression. A large, single neodymium ring magnet also produces exceptionally high flux density and BL factor.
The enclosures are equipped with high-power digital amplifiers. A 400W module – split 300W/100W for low and high frequencies – powers the NX 10-SMA, while the larger NX 12-SMA is equipped with a 700W module delivering 500W and 200W (respectively) to the low and high frequencies. NX Series cabinets are manufactured from Baltic birch plywood and finished with a resistant paint for use on the road. The design includes ergonomic side handles integrated within the input panel for easier transport.
Though designed for stage monitoring applications, it is also possible to use the NX 10-SMA and NX 12-SMA as a portable PA system using the powder-coated steel pole mounts installed on the side of the enclosures. In order to control the response of the speakers in such different applications, RCF has incorporated two special equalisation modes: Floor, for stage monitoring and Free Field, for the use of the speakers as a stand-alone PA system.
