Renkus-Heinz ICONYX Gen5 IC16-RN

Digitally Steerable Line Array Loudspeaker Systems

Since 2005 Renkus-Heinz have been leading the field in Digitally Steerable loudspeakers.

ICONYX has now been installed in thousands of project worldwide, from LAX International Airport in Los Angeles to the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China.

Truly the most flexible, powerful and architecturally seamless, Digitally Steerable Column Array on the market Iconyx brings intelligible sound to even the most demanding acoustic environments.

Advanced Steered Beam Technology

• 16x 4" Coaxial Transducers each with three HF tweeters

• 16x Amplifier and DSP channels

• Beam control effective down to 400Hz

• Multiple beams and multiple acoustic beam centers

• Multiple Configuration Presets

• RHAON Network

• Slim, Low-Profile Design

ICONYX technology gives sound system designers the power to create a system to cover even the most problematic spaces. Up to eight steerable beams can be individually shaped and aimed from a single IC16-RN column using the powerful software-controlled DSP.

Multichannel audiophile amplifiers power arrays of purpose-designed coaxial transducers, each with its own triple tweeter high frequency array. This triple tweeter "array within an array" design reduces the distance between HF sources for greatly improved high frequency performance with consistent, broad horizontal dispersion.


ICONYX Gen5 Brings Clarity to First Baptist Church of Redlands

Redlands, California | April, 2016 - "One of the biggest reasons I chose the Iconyx Gen5 was the precise coverage. The choir stands with the main loudspeakers just to their right and behind them, which I expected to be an issue. There was no way around placing the speakers there, but with the Iconyx beam steering, we had no feedback issues at all, which is amazing." Patrick Ireland, Ireland Sound Systems



Historic Temple Emanu-El Chooses Iconyx Gen5

Birmingham, AL | March, 2016 - "Temple Emanu-El's sanctuary is an extremely challenging acoustic environment, with a lot of hard surfaces, as well as a dome. Renkus-Heinz ICONYX systems are excellent for music reproduction, and the congregation has a cantor who sings very beautifully. But the most crucial issue was speech intelligibility. The clarity of ICONYX, combined with their precision beam steering, made them the perfect choice for this install." - John Kendall, Twist Technology
