New RCF ART 745a's?
« on: May 07, 2014, 06:26:26 pm »

Hi,

I noticed today that RCF have recently released an new speaker to their 7series :-

http://www.rcf.it/products/pro-speaker-systems/art-7-series/art-745-a

The specs of this speaker look very impressive indeed. Both the horn and woofer have 4" voice coils and the maximum SPL has been increased. To top it off, the speaker is now around 5kg lighter than the previous ART725a model!

I have to say this looks like it could be a great speaker and am very keen to hear it at some point! My only complaint is that it doesn't have a built in crossover to use with an external sub!

Hi All,

After all those years, finally something in the same price range as the EV ZX5A, that gets louder and sounds better doing so ????

on paper it gets a vote of "meh" googling it yields a street price of 1300 EUROS, still just looks like yet another 700 watt 15"/1.5" speaker on a stick


woofer is 3.5" VC

I'd guess most buyers would be speaker on stick users or installers looking for a full range box that was solid down to 50hz.

I have never seen a plastic box like it.  Its got a very large 4 diaphragm compression driver crossed at 650Hz! Most a have small 1.75 drivers crossed at 1K2 to 1K6Hz. With the components they have used, its got some serious potential for a plastic box.
 
I suspect the HF driver is similar to this one.

I found pricing on a store in England, and it seems to have the same price as the ART-725MK11. It is also lighter (neo versus ceramic of the 725MK11).

Looks good on paper , waiting for the ZX5A/ ART-745 comparison !

Thought I'd bump this to see if there are any user experiences with these yet?
