The VR12 from Alcons Audio is a two-way compact multi-purpose loudspeaker for both portable and permanent applications. Featuring the Alcons RBN601 ribbon driver (multiple patents pending), the VR12 is designed for applications where high output, very high fidelity sound reinforcement is needed.
The VR12 features a 6” pro-ribbon driver with “Real-90” horizontal dispersion for MF/HF and a 12” mid-bass driver for LF. The frequency response is 60Hz. up to 20kHz. (+-3dB), with a peak power output of 134dB.
Utmost user flexibility was the main design goal; The asymmetrical enclosure and the 90-degree revolvable wave-guide make the VR12 ideal as compact FOH system, fill-in cabinet as well as (high-power) floor monitor. In installations, this also offers very flexible (ceiling/wall) mounting. The cabinet is standard equipped with 6-position fly-track, standmount adapter and single-stud tilt point.
One feature of note on the RBN601 is the unique “HempHorn™." This wave-guide is made of a new combination of composite materials with natural hemp fiber structures. Contrary to the traditional glass fiber horns, the HempHorn features the same stiffness as conventional (glass fiber) horns, but is characterized with a much higher internal damping (at same weight). This results in a so-called “inaudible” waveguide, without the well-known “harsh horn sound”. The HempHorn for the VR12 is available in 90x40 or 60x30 degree configuration.
