IC8-R-II

Advanced Steered Beam Technology
Raleigh, NC, USA. Museum of Natural Sciences


• 8x 4" Coaxial Transducers each with three HF tweeters
• 8x Amplifier and DSP channels
• Beam control effective down to 800Hz
• Multiple beams and multiple acoustic beam centers
• Multiple Configuration Presets
• RHAON Network
• Slim, Low-Profile Design

ICONYX technology gives sound system designers the power to create a system to cover even the most problematic spaces. Up to four steerable beams can be individually shaped and aimed from a single IC8-R-II column using the powerful software-controlled DSP.

Multichannel audiophile amplifiers power arrays of purpose-designed coaxial transducers, each with its own triple tweeter high frequency array. This triple tweeter "array within an array" design reduces the distance between HF sources for greatly improved high frequency performance with consistent, broad horizontal dispersion.
