RCF announces the introduction of the new HDL30-A line array with a product demonstration scheduled for the LDI Live Outside portion of the LDI convention November 18-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. The HDL30-A is the latest addition to the RCF HDL line array family. Touted as, “a lightweight champion with an impressive punch,” it is a compact bi-amped two-way active tour-grade system for medium to large events, both indoors and outdoors.

The RCF HDL 30-A features two 10” neodymium woofers coupled with a 4” titanium high-frequency compression driver mounted on a time coherent 4 PATH waveguide providing 100° x 15° coverage pattern.

Incorporating new FiRPHASE DSP technology, the HDL 30-A is the first line array in a composite cabinet with zero-degree phase and ultra-linear amplitude response. The built-in 2200-watt auto-switching class-D amplifier delivers excellent playback clarity and up to 137 dB max SPL with frequency response from 50 Hz to 20,000 Hz.

For touring, the cabinet offers a lightweight design—only 55 pounds—and new rigging hardware that allows for array angles to be set before the cabinets are flown. These features significantly reduce manpower hours and cartage. Up to 20 HDL30-A modules can be flown on a single flybar.

RCF has incorporated RDNet technology into the cabinets, giving real-time remote control and monitoring and testing capability of all components from the FOH position; allows for adjustments of equalization, gain and delay; provides capability of read out of tilt angles with the built-in inclinometer; and provides capability of grouping modules together in arrays that can be stored as presets for control capabilities.

At LDI Live Outside, RCF will be demonstrating a system comprised of (24) HDL30-A with (12) SUB9006-AS dual 18” 7,200-watt active subwoofers. Demonstration times: Friday, November 18: Noon, 1:30 pm, 3 pm & 5:30 pm and Saturday, November 19: 1 pm, 2:30 pm, 4 pm
