Alcons Audio: Alcons Offers 'WYMIWYG' Technology

The LR24, a three-way, "larger-format" line-source sound system, was added to Alcons' product offering for a "what you mix is what you get" innovation.

The LR24 is redefining sound reinforcement, as it combines a HiFi-grade sound quality with very high SPL capabilities. Loaded with Alcons' proprietary pro-ribbon technology for mid and high frequencies, the LR24 offers very fast impulse response with full-dynamics, up to 90 percent less distortion under lowest power-compression.
