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 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 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.
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.
Bogotá, Colombia | April, 2017 - "The sound the Renkus-Heinz loudspeakers provide is amazing.

Uppsala, Sweden | January, 2017 - Sweden's Uppsala Cathedral is one of the oldest houses of worship in Europe, not to mention the tallest in Scandinavia. World-renowned for its architecture and history, the Cathedral was once the burial place of Swedish royalty, and is now home not just to a devoted congregation, but uniquely historical items such as Queen Margareta's golden dress – the world's only preserved evening gown from the Middle Ages.
Montreal, QC, Canada | September, 2016 - If you seek inspiration and perhaps a dose of humility, you might visit Montreal's magnificent Marie-Reine-Du-Monde Basilique Cathedrale (Mary Queen of the World Cathedral Basilica).Read More
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.Read More
Bangkok, Thailand | August, 2016 - As one of Thailand's oldest institutions of higher learning, Bangkok's Thammasat University has long inspired its staff and students to honor the school motto and "be the finest." But such lofty ambitions can be hard to meet when technology fails to live up to expectations. Such was the case until recently within the university's multipurpose lecture theater, where a six year old line array was struggling to make itself heard. Now the problem is solved courtesy of an innovative Renkus-Heinz solution.Read More
Springfield, MO | August, 2016 - Sunday services at East Sunshine Christian Church are all about singing along. The church's contemporary worship style is based around four part acapella harmonies, led by the group onstage and accompanied by anyone in the congregation who cares to join in.
Houston, Texas | June, 2016 - "The new Iconyx Gen5 gave us even more control, and the new RHAON II software enabled us to set up the entire system faster and more easily than I had ever experienced."

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
Birmingham, AL | March, 2016 - "Temple Emanu-El's sanctuary is an extremely challenging acoustic environment, with a lot of hard surfaces, as well as a dome. Renkus-Heinz ICONYX systems are excellent for music reproduction, and the congregation has a cantor who sings very beautifully. But the most crucial issue was speech intelligibility. The clarity of ICONYX, combined with their precision beam steering, made them the perfect choice for this install." - John Kendall, Twist TechnologyRead More
Waterbury, Connecticut | February, 2016 - "Earlier Iconyx generations sounded very good, and the drivers are the same in Gen5. But it has new amplifiers and new DSP, and it sounds even better. The IC32-RN's intelligibility is outstanding, even at 120 feet away in a reverberant space with almost four seconds of delay." - Peter Scandone, Jr., PASCOM Sound, Inc.Read More
