Every CF/CFX Series loudspeaker system is designed to the highest standards of innovation and quality. Each unit is then rigorously tested before shipment to make sure that they live up to the distinguished name we put on every box, and inside every loudspeaker: Renkus-Heinz. We know your reputation depends on reliable, consistently superior performance – and so does ours.
No matter how good its performance, the acoustical complexities of typical public listening spaces can easily overwhelm even the most advanced integrated loudspeaker system.
The CF/CFX Series incorporates many lessons learned from EASE – and from the consulting community – about sound system performance in real acoustic spaces. With the help of this invaluable experience and feedback, we have developed a broad range of systems that provide effective solutions for almost any sound reinforcement problem.
CF and CFX Series loudspeakers are equipped for easy use in both portable and permanent applications.
All are available with either a durable black or white finish or as an option, in custom colors.
All except for the floor monitor, the stairstep loudspeaker and the miniature CFX41 are also available with weather resistant treatment.
All are equipped with U-Bracket attachment points for easy wall and ceiling mounting in fixed installations, except for the floor monitor, the subwoofers and the stairstep loudspeaker.
All are also provided with 6 UMH (Universal Mounting Hardware) attachment points, making it easy to fly the cabinets using eye bolts, except for the floor monitor, the stairstep loudspeaker and the miniature CFX41.
All are also available with attachment plates for Omnimount wall and ceiling mounting hardware, except for the floor monitor, the stairstep loudspeaker and the miniature CFX41.
The CF/CFX18S and the CF/CFX12S subs tripod sockets are top mounted to allow their use as a stand base.
All CFX models are provided with both looping 4-pin Neutrik SpeakOn type connectors and screw type terminal strips. Self-powered CF models have looping 3-pin XLR type connectors.
All are equipped with a Tripod socket to allow pole mounting in portable use, except for the miniature CFX41, the compact CF/CFX61, the stairstep loudspeaker and the floor monitor.
All have handles for easy portability, except for the miniature CFX41, the compact CF/CFX61, and the stairstep loudspeaker.
Olso, Norway | February, 2017 - "The response from the airport operator has been extremely positive. They are impressed by the quality, and have made particular mention of the ability to cover very large areas with what is a relatively small number of speakers given the size of the terminal. It's a testament to the quality and consistency of the Renkus-Heinz range, and its ability to cope with all kinds of install environments." - Thomas Opheim, CaverionRead More
Kuwait City, Kuwait | November, 2016 - "By using beam steering we achieved really smooth coverage across the entire audience. It proves that with Renkus-Heinz beam steering you can achieve results beyond the usual." Norbert Bau-Renkus-Heinz Sales Manager for the Middle East.
Stuttgart, Germany | October, 2016 - "Our client particularly appreciated the great sound, precise focus, loudness, and low feedback of the Iconyx systems." - Michael Voessing, MediasProRead More
Molde, Norway | July, 2016 - "When we started with the project we saw that the room has big columns, large windows and a balcony with glass in front, so all of those factors made for more of a challenge. But it's not really so much of a challenge for Renkus-Heinz; it's just a matter of identifying where to put the speakers and optimizing the beam-steering to minimize reflections. Even for this space, we installed two IC Live columns and two small loudspeakers on each side as fills – it was no more complex than that." Jo Tore Bæverfjord, Molde Forum ASRead More
New Orleans | July, 2016 - "The whole idea of a museum of this scale is to have spaces that are constantly changing, with new exhibits coming in. We needed a very flexible audio system with a lot of control that could be reconfigured for a multitude of uses." - Rob Pourciau, JBA Consulting EngineersRead More
Maotai, China | July, 2016 - "The installation is fully ready for all major networking protocols – Dante, AVB and Cobranet, which means in the future it can be extended in whichever way the owner requires. Almost any possible future network transport protocol can be connected to the existing system. Put simply, the theater is a working demonstration of the principle behind AES67. If future products need to be added or if a broadcasting system, for example, needs to be integrated, then the architecture will be able to support any transport protocols that are required." - Lu Cheng, TICO Digital Group.Read More
Gyeongju, Korea | May, 2016 - It's rare that a project is so essential that even its identity has to be protected. Yet near to South Korean city of Gyeongju, in the province of Gyeongsang, the recently opened headquarters of one of Asia's largest power companies is so important that its name can't even be printed. Yet even the largest projects can run into familiar challenges, and like thousands of less secretive installations, when this facility encountered acoustic problems, it turned to a name it already knew – Renkus-Heinz.Read More
Syracuse, New York | May, 2016 - "As harsh as the winter can be in Syracuse, people still go outside and do things.

Redlands, California | April, 2016 - "One of the biggest reasons I chose the Iconyx Gen5 was the precise coverage. The choir stands with the main loudspeakers just to their right and behind them, which I expected to be an issue. There was no way around placing the speakers there, but with the Iconyx beam steering, we had no feedback issues at all, which is amazing." Patrick Ireland, Ireland Sound SystemsRead More
Bay St. Louis, Mississippi | March, 2016 - "VARIAi fit perfectly in the original speaker cluster position. The narrow vertical dispersion prevented splashing on the rest of the platform, and the horizontal dispersion let me use one cabinet where I would otherwise have to use several." - Eric Ross, Engineered Lighting and SoundRead More
New York, NY | March, 2016 - "We're fortunate to be very busy, and it's great to know we've got systems we can count on, day in and day out.

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia | February, 2016 - "The system sounds consistently great with the partitions in place and when opened up into a single space. It perfectly complements the layout of the ballroom. System installer Mega Teknik Jaya Sdn. Bhd. did an excellent job, and the Sunway Resort team is delighted with their new Renkus-Heinz system. Now their Grand Lagoon Ballroom truly has a state-of-the-art system that's worthy of it." - Keith Tan, Mercoms Systems.
Syracuse, New York | January, 2016 - "The staff at the Hendricks Chapel and Syracuse University are extremely happy with the Iconyx Gen5 system," May relates. "Now they have uniform, high-quality sound throughout the space that is great for music and speech, whether there are 100 people or 1,000. It's a huge improvement. We're very pleased, as well; we'll do a lot more installs with Gen5." - David May, owner of DCI Sound.Read More
San Jose, CA | December, 2015 - "This was one of the first Gen5 installs anywhere, and the new series is the best yet. The combination of normal and progressively spaced transducers helped achieve excellent speech intelligibility in a very reverberant room. We could specify the size and configuration we needed, and we still hit our budget. Most important, the Iconyx Gen5 system sounds great in the space, and the client is very happy!" - Joe Orlando, Commercial Media SystemsRead More
Chicago, Illinois | October, 2015 - "With the old system, I could never hear clearly from the mix position. I just got used to how bad it sounded. With the new ICONYX steerable arrays, I'm sitting within the beam pattern, so I can make better decisions and know what it's going to sound like in the seats." Erik Saari, Sound Planning Associates,
De Panne, Belgium | September, 2015 - Indoor water parks have become increasingly popular across Europe in recent years, bringing year-round swimming to a region with never enough summer. While most European water parks sport soaring glass walls and palm trees, Belgium's Plopsaqua takes a somewhat different approach. Part of the popular Plopsaland De Panne theme park on the Belgian coast, Plopsaqua offers 4000 square meters (43,000 square feet) of enclosed subtropical environment, replete with 65ft Sky Drop, an interactive ‘disco slide,' and a storm pool with waves, thunder and lightning.

New Delhi, India | September, 2015 - "We have worked with Renkus-Heinz on similar projects in the past, with excellent results, and we were confident that their technology was ideally suited for this type of a challenge. Their VARIA technology enabled us to design a system that would provide very precise coverage to only the audience areas, while minimizing the sound to areas that would generate problematic reflections." - Vipul Vaghela, BAPSRead More

High seas | June, 2015 - "They needed a system that could deliver high-impact musical performance from the small stage area for dancing and for live music, but could also function at lower levels for background music during the day." "It also had to provide good intelligibility for spoken word performances. And it had to be consistent across the entire venue, without blowing anyone away." - Peter McBoyle, audio consultant and designerRead More
Toronto, Canada | March, 2015 - It's a principle that applies to virtually any industry – cultivating talent, in most cases, reaps significantly greater rewards than simply purchasing it. It was with this very principle in mind that, in the second half of 2011, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) announced plans to build its $21 million Toronto Football Club Kia Training Ground & Academy at the city's Downsview Park for its soccer franchise.
Winnipeg, Manitoba | February, 2015 - "I have had great success with Renkus-Heinz in similarly challenging spaces, especially their Iconyx arrays.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia | October, 2014 - "Renkus-Heinz ICONYX was the clear choice for a project of this magnitude. Steered-beam technology was the obvious solution for these challenging spaces, and Renkus-Heinz is the recognized leader in digital beam steering.

Riverhead, NY | August, 2014 - "Renkus-Heinz voices their boxes with a real belief in the human voice. When I hear vocals coming out of these boxes, they sound like they should even before I touch an EQ. That's very important to me. Intelligibility, warmth, depth, character — that's what the human voice is all about, and it translates to the instruments in the orchestra. If you get human voices to just sound right, you have done your work. And the Renkus-Heinz boxes do that beautifully." - Stuart J. Allyn, A.D.R. Studios, Inc.Read More
Banská Bystrica, Slovakia | July, 2014 - "The hall has always been very challenging acoustical space, and there were a lot of problems with spoken word intelligibility.

Bohumil Tonkovic, MediaTechRead More

New York, NY | June, 2014 - "The CFX81s were really the ideal solution for their needs and for their budget.

Changzhou City, Jiangsu Province, China | May, 2014 - On a busy thoroughfare in Changzhou's Wujin District, the aptly named Phoenix Valley Cultural Center stretches its wings over more than 156,000 square feet.

New York, NY | March, 2014 - "The CFX61's coverage pattern is very tight and very accurate, and gives us seamless coverage from box to box with wider spacing between the cabinets. That translates to fewer speakers than we would have needed to achieve this degree of consistency with a different solution." - John Paturno, Starview AudioRead More
Long Beach, CA | February, 2014 - "The IC2 delivers such even sound pressure level from front to back. When we did the demo, it was set up at the far end of the arena and shot down the long way. You could walk the whole space, cover the floor, and keep it a solid 98 db SPL from one side to the other." - Andy Batwinas, ElectrosonicsRead More
Reykjavik, Iceland | January, 2014 - When a bowling alley houses 22 lanes plus a VIP/private party area, a sports bar, cafe, and restaurant, live DJs, and more than 50 screens to showcase all the best in live sports and entertainment, it's clear that this is not just another blue collar beer-and-peanuts joint.

Columbia, MO | November, 2013 - "Having the ability to control our point sources and direct the sound exactly where we wanted it — and more importantly, to steer it away from the places we didn’t want it — made a tremendous difference.

New York, NY | November, 2013 - When Russian émigré Max Asnas opened his modest Manhattan delicatessen in 1937, few would have imagined that the Stage Deli would become one of the city's gastronomic legends.

Cartersville, GA | October, 2013 - "Being able to select among several boxes with different coverage patterns, and particularly being able to choose transitional boxes in between the fixed ones, makes a tremendous difference in designing a system.
