Foothill Ranch, California, Oct. 27, 2021 — Renkus-Heinz, manufacturer of premium professional loudspeakers, is pleased to announce updates to the company’s ultra-compact, steerable DC12/2 loudspeaker. The upgrades, which will be available in Q4 2021, bring improvements to multi-unit configurations and a new “full range” performance mode. This comes as part of a firmware and software update and will apply to all DC12/2 units.
The DC12/2 is an ultra-compact steerable array that brings clarity, intelligibility, and control to various applications. Designed for tight control and discreet aesthetics, the DC12/2 addresses the needs of smaller, more challenging installations.
The DC12/2 allows configuration via a smartphone and tablet app. This software-backed component of the loudspeaker allows for an easy upgrade path. Simply update already installed DC12/2 loudspeakers through the app. Units shipped after the update launches will include the new features natively. The new update includes two key features:
- Users can now connect to and configure multiple units at once. Using WiFi Station Mode installers can quickly and efficiently program multiple loudspeakers without manually connecting to and disconnecting from each device.
- End-users now have the ability to select the new “full range” mode for improved low-end extension, giving more full-range sound for installations without a subwoofer.
“We listened to our customers over the past year and worked to incorporate their feedback into these updates,” said Chad DeFranco, Engineering Manager at Renkus-Heinz. “With the firmware and app update for the DC12/2, we’re bringing greater flexibility to small and mid-size installations. All devices currently in the field can also make use of the update.”
Additional upgrades in the software update include delay and discrete gain control.
Updates will be available for download and use in Q4 2021 from both the Apple App and Google Play stores.
