Freeing up valuable floor space downstage is absolutely required sometimes.
RCF has bolstered its HDL subwoofer line up with two new models, the HDL 38-AS (18”) and the HDL 36-AS (15”). These HDL subs are “designed to fly”, ideal for theatrical and indoor system installations.
Both subs contain a built-in 3.200 W class-D amplifier that delivers excellent playback clarity up to 136 (135) decibels SPL max. RDNet remote monitoring and real-time control, complete the professional HDL System. The HDL 38-AS is the ideal flown bass complement to the HDL 30-A array system, while the HDL 36-AS is compatible with the HDL 28-A rigging system.
Interesting key points, common to the two newbies:
- Precision transducers
RCF’s time-honored legacy in speaker design and manufacturing offers state-of-the-art neodymium magnetic circuits, radically new voice coil ventilation systems and ground-breaking direct drive voice coil assemblies.
- “Al dente” Woofers
Professional sound engineers Worldwide have come to rely on RCF active subwoofers, thanks to very high SPL levels at very low frequencies, highly compact dimensions, and impressive size/weight to SPL output ratio.
- Designed to fly
The external hardware is designed for fast and easy deployment, completely compatible with RCF HDL line array modules, but equally suitable in a ground-stacked sound system.
- Advanced electronics
Onboard DSP provides system equalization, polarity control, fast limiter, RMS limiter, and configuration control – cardioid, end-fire and more – all features are accessible on the cabinet’s rear panel or remotely via RDNet networked management.
- Networked control and more
RDNet is a robust management network and control platform for small, medium and large arena-sized sound systems, as well as complex and extended installations. A network user can change level, delay, EQ and other settings, including advanced subwoofer configurations.
Tech specs of each model:
The HDL 38-AS is the ideal flyable bass complement for the HDL 30-A array system. It features one 4.0” voice coil, 18” Neodymium woofer to handle 136 dB SPL Max from 30 Hz to 140 Hz with the maximum linearity and low distortion.
The HDL 38-AS is perfect to create flown systems for theatrical and indoor requirements. The built-in 3200W class-D amplifier delivers high level playback clarity and up to 136 decibels SPL max, with RDNet compatibility for remote monitoring and control.
The HDL 36-AS is the ideal flyable bass complement for the HDL 28-A array system. It features one 4.0” voice coil, 15” neodymium woofer to handle 135 dB SPL Max from 40 Hz to 140 Hz with the maximum linearity and low distortion.
The built-in 3200 watts class-D amplifier delivers excellent playback clarity and up to 135 decibels SPL max. Due to its compatibility with RDNet – remote monitoring and control, the HDL 36-AS is part of the professional HDL System, as well as the HDL 38-AS.
