Introducing ICONYX Gen5

Renkus-Heinz introduced the first Iconyx array nearly a decade ago - While other manufacturers have only recently discovered the power of beam steering, Renkus-Heinz continues to refine and perfect the technology. The de facto choice for the most demanding installations — from LAX International Airport to China’s Great Hall of the People — Renkus-Heinz is the world leader in steerable sound.

Iconyx Gen5

The new standard in digitally steered arrays.


ICONYX Gen5 represents the latest in beam steering technology, integrating the power of advanced beam steering algorithms with the intuitive control of our new RHAON II System Designer software.

Faster  With direct TCP/IP control using industry-standard communications protocols, ICONYX Gen5 delivers a more than 200% increase in speed of operations.

Higher Output  New UniBeam technology and algorithms provide an additional 3-6dB of output potential.

Cost Effective Gen5 ICONYX adds Master and Slave amplifier modules, reducing both cost and complexity, and also introduces a new hybrid column, the IC16-8-RN. This new module uses three fixed triple-tweeter full range devices, coupled with five spaced low and mid frequency 4" woofers, to extend the length and LF Beam control frequency while utilizing a single 8 channel amplifier module to keep costs down.

DanteTM Connectivity Gen5 ICONYX -RD versions include Dual Redundant Dante connectivity with audio transport and RHAON II control over the same DanteTM network interface.

RHAON II

RHAON II System Manager has been completely redesigned from the ground up, using highly structured modular code for greater stability and expandability. The result is a new, more robust RHAON technology — faster, more reliable, with a streamlined, intuitive workflow. RHAON II is easy to program, easy to use, and fully compatible with both Gen5 and legacy Renkus-Heinz products.

RHAON II's new, network agnostic interface has been designed to work with tomorrow's networking protocols as well as today's. Currently supporting AVDECC IEEE1722.1, CobraNet, and AVB, RHAON II has been structured to allow easy implementation of new and emerging protocols, including Dante and AES67. Support for multiple NICs, and wireless operation makes RHAON II easy to integrate into existing network infrastructure.

RHAON II Steering

Introducing UniBeam Technology

With conventional point-source loudspeakers, achieving optimal coverage is a trade-off between distance and accuracy. UniBeam (Universal Beam) technology makes it possible to achieve ideal "Half Horn" coverage, using ICONYX digital beam steering to shape your coverage pattern.

Point the top of your beam to the back row, and UniBeam will provide seamless coverage to the front of the room, keeping sound away from upper walls and ceilings. Tune the beam's opening angle and intensity to the room with a few mouse clicks, with consistent level and tonality across the entire room. UniBeam delivers faster, easier setup with dramatically better results.

Schanzenfeld, MB, Canada | August, 2017 - "ICONYX speakers' horizontal coverage is fantastic, and this is a fairly wide church. If we had used a traditional single array in the center, or any point-source approach, we would need multiple speakers and more wiring and amplifiers. With just one pair of ICL-F-DUAL-RNs, we have a much cleaner installation, and they're slim and visually unobtrusive." - Myron Dyck, Golden West Sound Design

St Mary’s Catholic Church Begins a New Chapter with ICONYX

Joplin, MO | September, 2016 - The old St. Mary's Church, built in 1967, was admittedly due for a remodeling. Then in May of 2011, the city of Joplin was devastated by a catastrophic F-5 tornado, claiming scores of lives and hundreds of structures, including St. Mary's, which was leveled except for its large iron cross. Nearly five years later, St. Mary's new campus has been reborn, with a school, offices, and a 750-seat sanctuary that is nothing short of stunningly beautiful.
