Alcons Audio Official Thread

I could not find any official thread on this magnificent brand of audio systems, so I hereby created one!

In short; Alcons Audio is a Dutch manufacturer of high performance audio systems. They are present in several areas of operations such as commercial cinema and touring, but also has a separate line for high-end residential, screening and smaller commercial cinema setups; the CRMS line: https://www.alconsaudio.com/productcategory/crms-serie/. CRMS is short for "Cinema Reference Monitor Systems".

Their patented and very high performing pro-ribbon technology enables a combination of "hi-fi sound at PA levels", which is certainly a very useful feature for a dynamic home cinema system setup.

Next major US appearance is CEDIA 2018, their press-release can be found here:
https://www.alconsaudio.com/the-best...ce-cedia-2018/

Some important features of this particular CEDIA 2018 setup would be;
  • All ceiling speakers use the newly patent pending 90x60 degree waveguide, providing broader overall coverage
  • Full digital AES signaling from source to amplification, featuring a Storm Audio 32 channel AES preamp + Sentinel AES enabled amps / processing units*
  • New 18" high excursion very low frequency response subs will be on display for the first time in the US
  • Their *Sentinel amps / speaker processing systems, features a unique "sensing" system that compensates for long cable runs, maintaining a dampening factor in the excess of 10k
  • Now, for the first time, showcased in a custom built audio room with atypical residential dimensions, booth #SR-12
  • Featuring a Sony VPL-VW5000 4K (native) 5K lumen laser projector and a ScreenAcoustics (DreamScreen) UltraWeave V6 screen system with a MotoMask PRO frame, ensuring "visual excellence which matches the exceptional quality of the Alcons pro-ribbon audio system."

Alcons are the best I've heard by a wide margin. From my perspective they exceed the performance of the rest of the market in two critical aspects, wide full frequency dispersion and incredible dynamics. The 90 degree horizontal dispersion upto 20kHZ yields rock solid amazing imaging that remains fixed even as you walk around from seat to seat. About 4 years ago Peter C and got a private showing at Infocomm just a simple L,C,R setup with the CRMS's (pre MKII). We were listening to 2 channel music that we though was upmixed for the center channel. The L and R were about 16-20 feet apart, the sound stage image remained solid walking back an forth between the L and R, even with the C support I never heard such a stable image with that kind of movement , we even walked up to about 3 feet from the C, no change, then another step forward and the whole center image collapsed, the Center speaker had never been on, we were both floored. The second area is dynamics. The Alcons use a special SIS circuit that senses and adjusts for the speaker cable impedance. This and other design features allows them to produce 15:1 dynamic range (most speakers max out at 4:1). The effect is dramatic, other speakers tend to sound flat and dampened in comparison. When not being driven at Ref+6 (thanks Peter) they sound very musical.

Full disclosure My Alcons order is starting to arrive in September:
L,C,R -3 CRMS mkII
W,S1,S2,SB -8 CRMS-SR
FH,CH,TF,TM,VOG,TB -10 CRMSC-SRHV

For years I've been intrigued by Ribbon tech. Too bad it's not readily available in the DIY community at cheaper prices with the same SPL performance.


For a while now, I've been watching ALCONS and their reviews and upgrades. If I could ever afford them, I think they'd be the first I'd go to for a listening test.


My question is, who else has direct competition?



I know Quested supposedly has ribbons in some of their speakers. But I couldn't find anything really on their website. Or it's not very easy to navigate intuitively.

The ribbon tech used by Alcons is currently quite unique from a technical and functional standpoint, and their two main prerequisites enabling them to provide that extreme level of SPL from a planar type of driver is also patented. Thus; at least until someone figures another method of producing high SPL using ribbon tech, Alcons will be the only player providing this specific system. Sure, Quested and others are using ribbons too, but they have nowhere near the capabilities in term of power handling of that of the Alcons pro ribbons. For smaller setups / lower SPL’s, regular ribbons might still do the job though, but the - for all practical reasons - limitless dynamics provided by those Alcons systems is incredibly well suited for medium to large sized HT’s in my opinion.

I had understood that Quested uses ribbons in some of their speakers and an AMT-type of driver in others. Is the AMT driver not similar to what is used in the Alcons?

Not as I understand it. Alcons has a patent on a voicecoil attached to the ribbon that significantly increases its power handling and dynamic range. This combined with their SIS circuit and crossover design (passive and DSP in the Sentinal) gives them a 15:1 dynamic range. I also don't believe the Quested have the same level of full frequency dispersion, especially from 10K-20K.

I thought the main feature of the Alcons were the directivity control. I think that in most rooms most AMTs and planars will be adequate in terms of SPL capability and power handling. To have more doesn't hurt, though.

Say we have an Alcons Audio CRMS mkII and a JBL M2. Both have roughly the same SPL capabilities (at least according to what their specs state). Are you saying the CRMS mkII will sound more dynamic than the M2 because of this SIS circuit? If so, why (especially considering that they both reach the same max SPL)?

I believe the assumption being made is that playing loud is the same as playing with high dynamic range which is the difference between the lowest level and highest level resolved (at the same time) with no compression and little distortion. The compression and distortion (often at the higher frequencies) leads to a flatter and more fatiguing sound, espically over time.

You may be right. I remember seeing the heatsink and structure of the Alcons unit (in pictures) and it looked really "heavy duty". By all listener accounts it is a heckuva dynamic design. I haven't heard any Quested or Alcons systems yet, or the JBL M2 but I'm sure I'll eventually get to experience them all. Not that I'm in the market for anything, at the volume level I listen to I'm completely satisfied with what I've got. But window shopping for speakers is fun.

The second patent utilised, in addition to the coupled voicecoil for SPL, is what enables that very wide 90 degrees coverage @ full frequency. At CEDIA they will also showcase their new patent pending system increasing their vertical coverage as well (90x60 in this case), which is being used in their ceiling layout to better accommodate the spread needed for those (relatively) low ceilings that residential setups often would have...

Yupp, that narrow version of that new 18» would be the perfect fit in a narrow baffle wall setup, which is certainly the superior method of installing the CRMS system.

The "directivity control" is mostly the focus of their wave guide patents (and a ribbon with 90 deg horizontal full freq dispersion -within it freq range). Most of the control historically was to limit vertical dispersion to enable stacked line arrays for the commercial market to project near-field sound long distances. These are not used for home cinema.

https://www.alconsaudio.com/line-array-technology/#

As mentioned below the new 60 deg vertical (90- horiz) was introduced to address the higher vertical dispersion requirements of home theater especially in the heights,tops,VOG places and also for larger seating areas in smaller rooms for the surrounds. In my theater the L.C.R and surrounds are all at least 16ft from the MLP and 12 ft from the nearest seat so the 4" 90x40 dispersion is fine and I'm only using the 90x60 for the H,T,VOG.

The Alcons system design , Pro-ribbon wt voicecoil, SIS, crossovers, and DSP sentinels are all optimized to produce a 15:1 dynamic rage capability. When talking to Tom Beck (owner) he always makes that point.

What kind of dynamic range do other "typical" speakers produce for comparison? I know that's a vague question but tbh I don't know what to make of the 15:1 spec, lol. For example, does it mean that at a certain spl the transients can be 15x the average spl?

We’re currently not offering this system in the US, but if there were any special interest, AVS would be able to arrange it for sure...

As for finding comparable systems; well, it all depends on the room, requirement and general usage pattern. If you don’t max out a regular ribbon system; except for the (very essential) unique dispersion of the Alcons, you’d have kinda the same transient response at least.

Might also be other drivers similar to the Alcons ones, I believe Dolby had some professional cinema drivers with similar characteristics at some point (but still lacking in some other areas in direct comparison as far as I have understood...), but I have not seen anyone on the residential Ht market that is able to supply such a combination of SPL, transient response ala ribbon and dispersion, but if anyone knows of any similar ones please feel free to post that info!

Don´t shoot me if I´m mistaken, but I believe they use quite the "regular" ribbon albeit probably some really nice ones), although I am sure they sound amazing too!

Quested uses AMT’s (I am told), not sure about their power handling though...

Looks like a nice system. Lots of adjustability available with the framing. The wall covering used, looks a lot like a product sold here in the US called Hardiboard.

Sure Mike, I believe that’s the same type of boards.

Some Alcons CEDIA 2018 booth install pics!







We’re hopefully up and running shortly, room looks great too, Walter measured a rt60 (reverberation time) quite close to a real world home cinema setup, quite an improvement from previous conference room setups. So far no rattling has been identifyed either, so lookin’ good!!

Subs are closed though, not ported like the pic. Linear in room response down to about 14hz prior to any eq’ing by the way...

From Walter: The room construction itself lends itself to a significantly reduced ringing and resonance compared to our previous efforts...

Look forward seeing you Mike!

What is this CEDIA you speak of?

I will land in about thirteen hours. Lygren and Arrow let me have this. I am not looking forward to my six hour flight.

Some Alcons CEDIA 2018 booth install pics!







We’re hopefully up and running shortly, room looks great too, Walter measured a rt60 (reverberation time) quite close to a real world home cinema setup, quite an improvement from previous conference room setups. So far no rattling has been identifyed either, so lookin’ good!!

Subs are closed though, not ported like the pic. Linear in room response down to about 14hz prior to any eq’ing by the way...
