Title: New RCF HDP45, HD35 & HD15
Post by: Richard Penrose on September 26, 2018, 03:20:38 am
I’ve just seen that RCF are bringing out new models in their HD line. The most interesting one for me is the HDP45.

Some of the more interesting features for me are :-

1/ New amp module derived from TT+ series
2/ RDNet
3/ New cabinet design (HD35 and HD15 also have this)

Other features look similar to the 745 and NX45

133 dB Max SPL
2200 WATT 2-way power
1.5” Titanium Compression Driver, 4.0” v.c.
Neodimium „„15” Neodimium Woofer 3.5” v.c.
750 Hz crossover point for perfect vocal reproduction „„
90°x60°, wide dispersion constant directivity horn „„
FiRPHASE
Ultra-Light weight
705x442x386 mm - 27.76x17.40x15.20 in (HxWxD)

From the specs it looks like the ART-745A in a different poly enclosure. I can't figure out why it would weigh 10 lbs more than the ART version though. The ART box is pretty thick and well braced so I can't imagine that much more weight just from a different box and full grill, so the amp module must be the main contributor. Maybe it doesn't weigh as much as they say. It wouldn't be the first time RCF had bad / conflicting info on their site.

I've never understood the incorrect frequency response specs for some of the models on their site. For example the Art 310A, used to say response down to 45hz (now 50hz) even though their own published frequency graphs indicated a clear drop in response below 70hz. Response is actually down like 20DBs at the 50hz point! The 312A and 315A used to have that same response spec down to 45hz, but their graphs indicated otherwise... You'd think they could read their own graphs.

What does the M in HDM stand for? In HDL I'm guessing it's "Line"(array). But the M?

"monitor" would be my guess.

My guess is "Multi-purpose" as that's how they are marketing that specific cab.

From the website:

HIGH DEMAND APPLICATIONS

The multi-purpose cabinet shape will allow every D-LINE model to be used in the standard configuration as well as in stage monitor mode. Two M10 and three M6 threaded inserts available for optional mounting hardware. This makes the speakers perfect for use in mounted or flown situations. When used on top of a SUB Series the HD speaker becomes an incredibly powerful PA system.
