IC²

IC²

Delivering incredible power and performance, IC² is truly the most flexible loudspeaker available today.

Just one IC² can deliver as many as four individually controllable beams of sound. Array multiple IC² and you have a truly steerable line array - all dead hung from a single point.

IC2

Steered Beam Technology, Squared
Wheaton, IL, USA. College Church

Combining the advantages of point source design with the control and flexibility of digitally steered array technology, IC² digitally steerable loudspeaker modules and arrays offer an elegant and innovative solution to the most challenging acoustical problems. Individual driver control delivers unequalled vertical pattern control for maximum intelligibility. IC² beams can be steered up or down while the stack or array remains vertical.

Powerful and versatile, the IC² system's four 8-inch low frequency Neodymium transducers and four 1-inch throat Titanium Nitride coated HF drivers deliver powerful sound levels that belie their compact size. Whether employed individually as a stand-alone high-performance loudspeaker, ground stacked as a small array, or flown in larger, multi-cabinet arrays for even more output and greater control, IC² is an ideal solution for everything from delivering intelligible speech and cutting through crowd noise to shaking the rafters at rock concerts.

Point Source Clarity • Line Array Power

IC2 loudspeaker systems are both powerful and versatile. As a stand alone loudspeaker, the IC2 will deliver over 100 dB SPL of audiophile quality audio at 100 feet.

Digitally controlled, the output of an IC2 can be delivered as a single, well controlled, vertical beam as tight as 10 degrees or as wide as 80 degrees. The beam center can be aimed over a 60 degree vertical range, up or down by 30 degrees. Horizontal dispersion is a consistent 120 degrees.

The IC2 output can also be designed into 2, 3 or even 4 sonic beams, each having its own acoustic center and each individually shaped and aimed - all adjustable from a remote computer over a simple Ethernet connection.

When combined with other IC2 loudspeakers in a vertical stack, IC2 becomes a powerful digitally steerable line array system whose output can be precisely shaped and aimed digitally without altering the straight line configuration of the array. Conventional line arrays are aimed by changing the array’s shape into a curve or “J” configuration - shapes that are more difficult to fly and aim, occupy more space and often interfere with sightlines. IC2 arrays always stand or hang straight and tall, while providing precise control over the array’s output. Up to 20 IC2 array modules and IC212S subwoofers can be flown in a single powerful array.

Key Features

• Digitally Steerable Array Technology
Steerable by +/- 30 degrees, "dead" hang the system and adjust the aiming from the RHAON control software.

• Variable Beamwidth Control
Adjustable vertical opening angle from 10 to 80 degrees per beam, even from a single cabinet. With multiple cabinets deploy beams as tight as 5 degrees for maximum control.

• Variable Acoustic Center
Place the acoustic center anywhere within the array, or for multiple beams choose multiple acoustic centers to best suit the application.

• Self-Powered
Integral DSP controlled, 8-channel Class D digital amplifiers provide 60 Hz to 20 kHz performance.

• Powerful
A single cabinet can deliver up to 131dB Peak SPL, over 100dB Peak at 30 meters - add even higher levels from multi-cabinet arrays.

• Versatile
Use as a stand-alone loudspeaker or as a line array module in ground stacked or flown line arrays.

• Advanced Transducers
Audiophile quality transducers with Neodymium magnets provide outstanding performance, reduce weight.

Renkus-Heinz Wins Converts at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church

Apex, NC | September, 2017 - "After working with the Renkus-Heinz sound system in the church for several weeks, I am very impressed. (The system) sounds great, and you get an almost identical sound no matter where you are in the room. The speakers steer the sound where it's supposed to be, which helps us keep the volume and reverberation at the right level. We've been extremely pleased with how everything has come together. I'm a Renkus-Heinz IC2 convert; I love it!" - Scott Todd, FOH engineer, St Mary Magdalene Catholic Church

Renkus-Heinz Enables the Word to be Heard at St. Columban Church

Garden Grove, CA | April, 2017 - "Renkus-Heinz steering technology forced me to change the way I do my designs. The IC2 is quite powerful, the sound is very clear, and with its precise beam-steering, we were able to cover everything with just two stacks and a total of four speakers. With a traditional approach, we might have needed 25 speakers—a lot more moving parts. Steering technology allowed me to keep it simple at St. Columban's, and the results have been exceptional." - David Lusk, AudioVideo Technologies, Inc.

San Juan Capistrano, CA | October, 2016 - Since opening its doors in 1980, The coach House has established itself as a landmark of the Southern California music scene. As founder Gary Folgner observes, Southern Orange County was a much different place 36 years ago. "There weren't a lot of places for live music, and we were filling a need," Folgner says.

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.

Joplin, MO | June, 2016 - "The IC² made a lot more sense in terms of the nature of the space.The ability to create multiple beams in the RHAON II software, and to vary and aim those beams to reinforce the sound where it needs to be while avoiding hard surfaces like the walls and balcony facing, enabled us to provide consistent coverage to every part of the auditorium." - Ryan Zemke, AVL Systems Design

Moscow, Russia | July, 2015 - "The Renkus-Heinz IC2 system was the ideal choice for this venue. Because of the hall's low ceiling, hanging a line array would have been impractical. With the ICONYX steered beam technology, we were able to ground stack the system at the sides of the stage and still aim and focus the sound precisely on the audience, minimizing reflections from the walls and other surfaces." - Sergey Vashchenko, Avallon

Grove City, OH | December, 2014 - "They demonstrated the beam steering by putting us up in the balcony with the IC² cabinet on stage. We could hear it just fine. Then he opens his laptop and says, ‘Watch this,' and steers the speaker digitally so it's hitting us directly upstairs. All of a sudden, boom, there it was, with unbelievable clarity. I looked at my front of house engineer and we both said, ‘That's the one.' It was the coolest thing." - Matt Groves, Grove City Church
