Alcons Audio at Prolight + Sound 2019: it’s All About Live
Germany – Alcons Audio comes to Prolight + Sound 2019 with a number of new pro-ribbon loudspeaker developments, bringing enhanced benefits to small, medium and large scale live productions.
Exhibiting at Hall 8.0, Stand G71, Alcons is highlighting its steadily increasing expansion into the live touring and festival markets with significant additions to its L-series of true line source, vertical array loudspeaker systems, highlighting Alcons’ commitment to bringing the many benefits of pro-ribbon audio quality and directivity to medium/large venues and outdoor festivals.
Positioned between the LR18 compact mid-size and LR28 larger-format systems, the new LR24 mid-size pro-ribbon line-array features a new, specially-designed pro-ribbon transducer. The LR28B low-frequency module sets a new benchmark for arrayable sub-extension, with a new 18" ultra-low distortion woofer design. More detailed specifications will be revealed at the show.
Also highlighted will be the LR18/120, wide-dispersion compact mid-size line-array module. This 120º dispersion LR18 module has already toured with kd lang, Lisa Nilsson and others – to considerable acclaim – in Alcons pro-ribbon systems that also included the LR18/90 and LR18B bass extension.
Alcons will also be showing the QR20 modular line-source array column, which received a lot of attention from the professional rental and installation markets at its ISE preview in February. Designed for smaller applications, where SPL and throw requirements are lower but the same unique directivity of the larger Q system solutions is needed, the much-anticipated QR20 offers a coherent horizontal pattern control with seamless coverage, noticeably widening the stereo ‘sweet spot’ for the audience positioned off-axis.
"With our profile rising in the rental and touring market, Prolight + Sound remains a very important show for Alcons Audio and one of the highlights of the year,” says company co-founder Tom Back. “We are bringing a number of new developments, aimed at very high-quality sound reinforcement. They widen the power-output options and add flexibility to the existing solutions, further extending the sound designer's toolbox within the L-series of pro-ribbon line-arrays.
“We very much look forward to being present in Frankfurt and sharing these new developments with our partners and potential new Alcons customers.”
