The ART Series is the beating heart of RCF. These multiple purpose active speakers represent the finest examples of audio design in a rugged composite cabinet, now in black.
NEW PERSPECTIVE ON LINEARITY
Woofers and compression drivers are precision built taking advantage of RCF’s technologies and a wealth of professional knowledge and experience dedicated to achieving extremely high standards.
POWERFUL CLASS D AMPLIFIERS
RCF's Class-D power amplifier technology packs huge performance operating with high efficiency into a lightweight solution. ART 3 amplifiers deliver ultra-fast attack, realistic transient response and impressive audio performance. The amplifier features a solid mechanical aluminium structure which not only stabilises the amplifier during transportation but also helps the fan-less heat dissipation. All the ART 3 amplifiers present SMPS power supply section in order to produce maximum output and minimum transportation weight.
BRING ART WITH YOU
Every ART model can be used in the standard or stage monitor configuration. Thanks to the rear profile of the cabinet, the ART 3 Series speakers can easily be used as stage monitors whatever the needs of musicians. Internal reinforcement prevents any deformation of the cabinet.
ART 3 speakers are ideal for the musician or sound provider. Their plug ‘n' go design is simple yet powerful: double input (XLR or Jack), one volume knob. Cabinets are moulded on a special polypropylene composite material designed to dampen down vibrations even at maximum volume settings. From moulding to the final texture, ART3 offers maximum reliability and strength for intensive use. The ART 3 MK4 are equipped with handles for greater portability.
RCF speakers are designed using a proprietary and advanced FiR filtering technology, conceived to deliver transparent sound, absolute clarity and perfect stereo images to the listener. The special FiRPHASE filters allow to achieve coherent distribution of sound for all listeners without phase distortions, ensuring minimum latencies to the system.
The design of the FIR filter for this specific purpose should start from an accurate measurement of the loudspeaker phase. FiRPHASE algorithm use this measurement and adapt the loudspeaker’s phase without touching the amplitude equalisation. The heart of the advanced technique used by FiRPHASE is a recursive method (least squares method) combined with a proprietary algorithm that calculates the best FIR filter coefficients set in according to amplitude and phase constrains. The algorithm corrects phase and amplitude (if necessary) by taking into account the weak points of the transducers and the resonances or cancellations due to the cabinet of the loudspeaker. This technique allows a deep control of phase at mid-low frequency with relatively small filters, reaching a higher resolution than that one as theory suggests.
Thanks to the 0° phase response, all the FiRPHASE speakers are acoustically compatible. In other words, if you use FiRPHASE speakers as downfill, sidefill or infill, there is no need to adjust the phase response.
