Renkus-Heinz announced the latest product in its C Series line: the CA/CX121M; a compact, cost-effective stage monitor. Available in both passive (CX121M) and powered (CA121M) models, the single 12” stage monitor/multipurpose loudspeaker combines Renkus-Heinz’s standards with coaxial driver technology. With identical horizontal and vertical off-axis performance, the performer is allowed greater freedom of movement without changes in frequency response — a capability made possible with acoustically time-aligned point-source, phase-coherent devices.
Designed not only as a stage monitor, the CA/CX121M is also for portable and installed PA functions, according to Renkus-Heinz. It can be used as a pole-mounted side fill — using the optional pole adapter — or sound reinforcement system without the need to rotate or reconfigure the drive unit. Also, the UBRKT/CT121M mounting yoke is available to facilitate permanent installation configurations.
The CA/CX121M utilizes a 12” (300-millimeter) high-efficiency coaxial transducer mounted in a compact and sturdy, black or white durable plywood cabinet.
Ergonomic and discreet recessed handles — along with the optional pole adapter — make portable use easy and practical. Further, the unit’s robust perforated steel grill is designed to withstand the rigors of the road and provide driver protection.
The optional SA625 power amplifier matches the power needs of the CA121M, providing optimized processing for performance and protection. The integral amp eliminates the need for additional rack space and speaker cable runs. Controlled via RHAON II, the SA625’s built-in DSP has eight fully parametric EQ filters, high and low shelf and high and low pass filters, and up to 358 milliseconds of delay. All options are easily accessed via a Windows computer running RHAON II. In addition, a single CA121M can power one additional CX121M with bi-amplified, processed output via an NL4 output.
The CA121M-RD adds Dante digital signal distribution capability, including AES67 compatibility and network redundancy.
