The VR12 is a two-way compact multipurpose loudspeaker for both portable and permanent applications. Featuring the Alcons RBN601 ribbon driver, the VR12 is ideal for applications where high-output, very high-fidelity sound reinforcement is needed.

The VR12 features a 6-inch pro ribbon driver with “Real-90” horizontal dispersion for MF/HF and a 12-inch mid-bass driver for LF. The frequency response is 60 to 20k Hz. (+-3 dB), with a peak power output of 134 dB.

The asymmetrical enclosure and the 90-degree revolvable wave-guide make the VR12 ideal as compact front-of-house system, fill-in cabinet and a high-power floor monitor. In installations, this also offers very flexible (ceiling/wall) mounting. The cabinet is standard equipped with 6-position fly track, stand-mount adapter and single-stud tilt point.

Part of the RBN601 is the unique “HempHorn,™” a wave guide is made of a new combination of composite materials with natural hemp-fiber structures, and features the same stiffness as conventional (glass-fiber) horns, but is characterized with a much higher internal damping (at same weight). The HempHorn for the VR12 is available in 90x40- or 60x30-degree configuration.

The VR12 is to be powered by the 2x 1kW ALC2 (or 2x 2kW ALC4) amplified controller. The SpeakerDriveProcessing™ circuit of the ALC offers dedicated protection and filtering, with remote system equalizing. By fully utilizing the individual speaker components’ efficiency, this results in dramatically increased headroom SPL.

The SignalIntegritySensing™ prewiring of the VR12 ensures complete cable/connector compensation between VR12 and the ALC controller amplifier, resulting in a damping factor of 10.000 for very tight and accurate mid and bass reproduction.
