Renkuz-Heinz returned to Integrated Systems Europe 2023 to exhibit various systems including the award-winning UBX Series of passive column loudspeakers and Iconyx Compact Series digitally steerable arrays.
UBX Series: The award-winning UBX Series brings Renkus-Heinz’s industry-leading sound quality and coverage into the realm of passive arrays, creating more opportunities for AV contractors, consultants and sound system engineers to craft the perfect sound solution for their projects. Utilizing the same complex steering algorithms as Renkus-Heinz’s flagship ICONYX columns, the UBX Series’ new Passive UniBeam™ Technology delivers pristine sound and consistent coverage with minimal distortions or side lobe artifacts.
The UBX Series hardware addresses each transducer with specially designed all-pass filter networks, gain shading and frequency filtering in order to generate a downward steered asymmetrical vertical lobe with constant directivity — resulting in unmatched coverage and speech intelligibility from the front of the room to the back.
Available in three weather-resistant sizes — UBX4, UBX8 and UBX16 — all UBX Series models feature an ultra-sleek, unobtrusive cabinet that can be surface-mounted plumb to the wall to ensure minimal architectural intrusion in any space.
Iconyx Compact Series: The Iconyx Compact Series brings the performance and directivity synonymous with Renkus-Heinz to spaces where even the classic ICONYX arrays might be too large. With an ultra-narrow profile and exceptional directivity control, Iconyx Compact is well-suited to even the most architecturally sensitive houses of worship, transportation hubs and educational facilities requiring the outstanding performance and high intelligibility of beam-steered line arrays.
Iconyx Gen5 Series: As part of the ICONYX Gen5 Series of digitally steerable loudspeaker arrays, the IC8-RD combines digital control and steering with exceptional audio fidelity. This model also features dual redundant Dante connectivity and the RHAON II System Manager — the second generation of the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network software — to bring a new level of flexibility and control to ICONYX installations. The IC8-RD easily stores and recalls up to 10 configuration presets. With a slim, low-profile design and powerful audio abilities, the IC8-RD is ideal for houses of worship, stadiums and arenas, transportation terminals and other reverberant spaces.
ICLive X Series: As the intelligent evolution of the small-format line array, the ICLive X Series represents over 15 years of research and development of digital beam-steering technology. With the ICLive X Series, Renkus-Heinz has created a compact, high-output and high-fidelity integrated system to meet the needs of nearly any live sound environment — perfect for both portable or performance-based fixed installations. The ICLive X Series is the most versatile steerable line array on the market, ready to solve even the most challenging projects with directed, intelligible sound.
The ICLive X has been designed from the ground up to be the single most scalable sound system ever created: each mid-sized ICLX module can stand alone or be arrayed with up to 12 units to deliver precise and predictable coverage for any venue. The complementary ICLX-118S subwoofer adds powerful low frequency energy to any ICLive X system, and a wide range of rigging and cabling accessories help simplify integration and deployment of the ICLive X Series. With ultimate flexibility, coverage and powerful beam-steering technology, the ICLive X Series offers peak sound performance in a versatile, sleek design — something no traditional loudspeaker system can match.
Directivity Control Series: The first product in the Renkus-Heinz Directivity Control series is the DC12/2, an ultra-compact steerable array that brings the clarity, intelligibility and control of the legendary ICONYX digitally steered line arrays to smaller but equally challenging spaces. This self-powered column line array features 12 full-range, 2-inch drivers powered by 12 channels of Renkus-Heinz’s acclaimed SA Series of amplifiers. The DC12/2 is the first digitally steered array with control via iOS or Android smartphones or tablets. The DC12/2 features a sleek, low-profile design perfect for boardrooms, museums and galleries, theaters, restaurants, fitness clubs and many other applications.
