• RCF announces a new system for the TT+ Series

    Italian audio company RCF introduces the T 515-A speaker and TT 808-AS subwoofer, two powered portable speakers for high-powered portable and installed professional applications. This approach combines the advantages of RCF TT+ features such as high power, multiple rigging accessories, weather protection, and RDNET software connection for real-time management with recallable presets.

    TT 515-A is a 127 dB speaker that can be used as a main speaker system, or to supplement a larger system, a 3D/immersive sound system, or distributed installations. The transducer configuration of the TT 515-A pairs two symmetrical custom-loaded 5" cone drivers to a rotatable CMD waveguide surrounding a titanium 1.75" high-frequency compression driver, all powered by a two-channel 1,000W RMS Class-D amplifier. The multiple rigging accessories and the form factor of the cabinet are suitable for a range of configurations including hanging, pole-, truss-, wall- or ceiling-mounting—in horizontal or vertical orientation—with a rotatable waveguide and logo plate.

    TT 808-AS subwoofer features two high-power 8" woofers with vented frontal loading powered by a two-channel 1,000W RMS Class-D amplifier. The compact cabinet can be used in both horizontal and vertical orientation or paired for cardioid, arc, and other subwoofer configurations using RDNet. TT 808-AS also includes balancing brackets for improved vertical stability and a rotatable logo.

    The onboard DSP provides control of speakers' parameters and packs a DSP with proprietary Bass Motion Control (BMC) and FiRPHASE processing. BMC extends the lowest audible frequency without affecting the transducer’s stability, limiting over-excursions for greater reliability and superior performance at high volume levels, says the company.

    The cabinet is built in baltic birch plywood coated with black polyurea paint. The amplifier is mounted to a solid machined aluminum structure at the back. A powder-coated metal grille protects the face, with acoustically transparent sound foam backing.

    Pairing TT 515-A speaker with TT 808-AS subwoofer creates a potent full-range main system with an incredible size-to-power ratio, says RCF.
