THE ART 3 SERIES DESIGN

ART 3 speakers are ideal for the musician or sound provider. Their plug ‘n’ go design is simple yet powerful: double input (XLR or Jack), one volume knob. Cabinets are moulded on a special polypropylene composite material designed to dampen down vibrations even at maximum volume settings. From moulding to the final texture, ART3 offers maximum reliability and strength for intensive use. The ART 3 MK4 are equipped with handles for greater portability.

Thanks to the rear profile of the cabinet, the ART 3 Series speakers can easily be used as stage monitors whatever the needs of musicians. Internal reinforcement prevents any deformation of the cabinet.

FIRPHASE

RCF speakers are designed by using FiRPHASE, a proprietary and advanced FIR filtering technology, conceived for delivering transparent sound, absolute clarity and perfect stereo images to the listener. The FiRPHASE algorithm optimizes dynamics, amplitude and phase patterns, ensuring at the same time minimum system latency.

PHASE MATTERS

The design of the FIR filter for this specific purpose should start from an accurate measurement of the loudspeaker phase. The FiRPHASE algorithm uses this measurement and adapts the loudspeaker’s phase without touching the amplitude equalization. The heart of the advanced technique used by FiRPHASE is a recursive method (Least Squared method) combined with a proprietary algorithm that calculates the best FIR filter coefficients set in according to amplitude and phase constraints. The algorithm corrects phase and amplitude (when necessary) by taking into account the weak points of the transducers and the resonances or cancellations due to the cabinet of the loudspeaker. Despite the design perfection of our transducers and cabinets, we realize that the phase corrections are the “missing point” for the perfection. This technique allows a deep control of phase at mid-low frequencies with relatively small filters, reaching a higher resolution than that one as theory suggests.
