Two-Way Complex Conic Loudspeaker Systems

PN/PNX Series loudspeaker systems integrate the entire signal chain - from line level to listener - into a compact, two-way system.

Renkus-Heinz engineering begins with the highest quality components: advanced transducers developed with the world’s leading manufacturers, no-compromise analog and digital electronics, and our unique Complex Conic horns. From there, our proprietary design process creates the most transparent, uncolored systems available.

Reference Quality, Unparalleled Versatility

Self-powered PowerNet PN and non-powered PNX Series loudspeakers unite advanced technology and application-driven engineering to bring live sound closer to the ultimate reference point: reality. Cutting edge driver technology and unique innovations such as our Complex Conic Horns deliver natural sounding music and intelligible speech.

Advanced options like intelligent onboard amplification and RHAON - the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network - help you build sophisticated sound systems that are easy to use. Wherever audiences and operators demand superior performance and ease of use, PN/PNX loudspeakers are the choice for transparent, reference quality performance.

All PN and PNX series loudspeakers are handcrafted especially for you in our Foothill Ranch, California facility. Numerous custom options are available.

The PN61 features a 6-inch Heavy-Duty Woofer and 1-inch HF tweeter.

PN61 PowerNet Self-Powered Loudspeakers
Integrated PN-1 Class A/B amplifier with loudspeaker-specific signal processing and protection.

PN61R RHAON Empowered Loudspeakers
Self-powered PN61R cabinets include RHAON (Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network) for flexible digital signal distribution, loudspeaker management and control.

PNX61 Non-Powered Loudspeakers
For use with external amplification.

Key Features

• Reference Quality, High-level
Accurate full-range 100 Hz to 20 kHz; 116 dB peak SPL performance from surprisingly compact loudspeakers.

• Exclusive Complex Conic Horn Design
Provides constant beamwidth/directivity without the problems of conventional rectangular horns; offers superior pattern bandwidth, low distortion and more natural sound; can be rotated 90° within the cabinet for wide or deep listening spaces.

• Built-in Crossover
Eliminates need for a separate electronic crossover and bi-amplification.

• Wide-Angle Coverage
Wide-angle 120° by 60° coverage is ideal for a wide range of applications.

• Choice of Finishes
PN and PNX Series loudspeakers are available in black, white or custom colors. Weather-resistant models are available.

PN-1/PN-1R PowerNet Amplifiers

The PN-1, the heart of PowerNet performance, is a new kind of intelligent electronics system. It combines low-feedback Class A/B amplification and comprehensive signal processing into a single compact unit. Crossovers and parametric EQ are integrated into the signal path. Loudspeaker specific processing senses when output levels are about to damage the system and limits them to safe levels.

The PN-1R adds RHAON, the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network. RHAON empowers you with full control over digital audio distribution, loudspeaker specific DSP and remote control/ monitoring - all using standard Ethernet hardware and cable.

The PN-1R offers dual analog inputs, dual CobraNet inputs and an AES3id serial input. Onboard DSP includes eight bands of parametric EQ, high and low shelving filters, delay and input level control, and is easily configured using RHAON software. Critical operating parameters such as signal clipping, amplifier output voltage and current, and temperature are continually monitored with automatic alert functions.

If you need a versatile reference quality 2-way system, order the PNX61 or the PN61. If you need Ethernet-based audio operations networking, order the RHAON empowered PN61R


• Virtually any application where size is a critical issue and reference quality sonic performance is required.

Permanent Installations
• Ideal for many side and front fill applications; mounts inconspicuously on walls or ceilings, stage lips, under balconies, etc.
• High quality speech and music systems, surround sound systems, conference room systems, etc.

Portable Applications
• A/V rentals; portable sound systems for performing artists and lecturers, small bands, choral groups, etc.
