Renkus-Heinz Redefines Column Loudspeaker Category with PCX Series Debut at ISE 2022

"The PCX Series brings the precise coverage, high intelligibility, and demonstrated sound quality of our flagship ICONYX loudspeakers to passive column arrays," says Ralph Heinz, CTO at Renkus-Heinz.

To bring The Sound Solution to more partners, across more installations, in more locations, loudspeaker manufacturer Renkus-Heinz now incorporates its UniBeam steerable technology in passive columns with the launch of the PCX Series. The US-based loudspeaker manufacturer unveiled the new PCX Series at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show in Barcelona (Booth 7M750).

The PCX Series expands on the broad Renkus-Heinz product range in the column array loudspeaker segment, complementing the company's already strong offerings in the architectural audio space -- where optimal intelligibility and minimum aesthetic impact are the driving concerns. Building upon the success of its flagship ICONYX self-powered steerable loudspeakers, the PCX Series provides AV contractors, consultants, and sound system engineers an additional solution in the shape of a unique passive loudspeaker.

"The PCX Series brings the precise coverage, high intelligibility, and demonstrated sound quality of our flagship ICONYX loudspeakers to passive column arrays," says Ralph Heinz, CTO at Renkus-Heinz. "Adding passive columns to our portfolio opens up new installation opportunities for our partners and introduces The Sound Solution of Renkus-Heinz to a broader spectrum of applications where intelligible sound matters most."

Renkus-Heinz's Passive UniBeam technology addresses each transducer with a specially designed passive filter network to generate an asymmetrical vertical dispersion pattern, shaping the coverage downwards, and delivering consistent front-to-back coverage with minimal side lobe artifacts. The PCX Series utilizes state of the art neodymium 3" Full- Range drivers ensuring a sleek and ultra-discrete appearance.

The PCX will be available in three different sizes upon launch -- PCX4, PCX8, and PCX16. The combination of the included wall mount bracket (optional pan and tilt bracket) and Passive Unibeam will enable flush mounting in most applications. This results in the lowest possible architectural intrusion without compromising audio coverage, the company says.

All models in the PCX Series are weather resistant (IP64) as standard; salt spray and UV resistant, as well as subject to rigorous high/low operational temperature and humidity testing -- making PCX Series well suited for both indoor and outdoor environments. Each model includes a gland/conduit knock-out input cover for added security and enhanced weatherization, and a high quality, low insertion loss transformers with an easily accessible tap switch for 70V/100V constant voltage operation in larger, distributed audio systems.

Specification is aided by compatibility with EASE Focus 3 software, allowing system design and verification with predictable results within the familiar environs of an industry standard software wizard.

See how Renkus-Heinz provides The Sound Solution with the new PCX Series at Booth 7M750 during ISE 2022 in Barcelona -- May 10 to May 13.
