Renkus-Heinz PN or PNX151

Two-Way Complex Conic Loudspeaker Systems


PN/PNX Series loudspeaker systems integrate the entire signal chain - from line level to listener - into a compact, two-way system.


Renkus-Heinz engineering begins with the highest quality components: advanced transducers developed with the world’s leading manufacturers, no-compromise analog and digital electronics, and our unique Complex Conic horns. From there, our proprietary design process creates the most transparent, uncolored systems available.



Reference Quality, Unparalleled Versatility


Self-powered PowerNet PN and non-powered PNX Series loudspeakers unite advanced technology and application-driven engineering to bring live sound closer to the ultimate reference point: reality. Cutting edge driver technology and unique innovations such as our Complex Conic Horns deliver natural sounding music and intelligible speech.


Advanced options like intelligent onboard amplification and RHAON - the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network - help you build sophisticated sound systems that are easy to use. Wherever audiences and operators demand superior performance and ease of use, PN/PNX loudspeakers are the choice for transparent, reference quality performance.


All PN and PNX series loudspeakers are handcrafted especially for you in our Foothill Ranch, California facility. Numerous custom options are available.


The PN151 features a 15-inch Heavy-Duty Woofer and 2-inch HF tweeter.


PN151 PowerNet Self-Powered Loudspeakers

Integrated PN-1 Class A/B amplifier with loudspeaker-specific signal processing and protection.


PN151R RHAON Empowered Loudspeakers

Self-powered PN151R cabinets include RHAON (Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network) for flexible digital signal distribution, loudspeaker management and control.


PNX151 Non-Powered Loudspeakers

For use with external amplification.



Key Features


• Reference Quality, High-level

Accurate full-range 40 Hz to 18 kHz; 131 dB peak SPL performance.


• Exclusive Complex Conic Horn Design

Provides constant beamwidth/directivity without the problems of conventional rectangular horns; offers superior pattern bandwidth, low distortion and more natural sound; can be rotated 90° within the cabinet for wide or deep listening spaces.


• TRAP (True Array Principle) Design

All PN & PNX151/4A models are true 40° TRAP modules. TRAP array geometry aligns acoustic centers, so modules combine seamlessly to produce a phase aligned wavefront virtually free of lobing.


• Choice of Coverage Patterns

Choose between 90°, 60° and 40° by 40° coverage.


• Choice of Finishes

PN and PNX Series loudspeakers are available in black, white or custom colors. Weather-resistant models are available.


• Built-in crossover

Eliminates the need for a separate electronic crossover and bi-amplification.



PN-1/PN-1R PowerNet Amplifiers


The PN-1, the heart of PowerNet performance, is a new kind of intelligent electronics system. It combines low-feedback Class A/B amplification and comprehensive signal processing into a single compact unit. Crossovers and parametric EQ are integrated into the signal path. Loudspeaker specific processing senses when output levels are about to damage the system and limits them to safe levels.


The PN-1R adds RHAON, the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network. RHAON empowers you with full control over digital audio distribution, loudspeaker specific DSP and remote control/ monitoring - all using standard Ethernet hardware and cable.


The PN-1R offers dual analog inputs, dual CobraNet inputs and an AES3id serial input. Onboard DSP includes eight bands of parametric EQ, high and low shelving filters, delay and input level control, and is easily configured using RHAON software. Critical operating parameters such as signal clipping, amplifier output voltage and current, and temperature are continually monitored with automatic alert functions.


If you need a versatile reference quality 2-way system, order the PNX151 or the PN151. If you need Ethernet-based audio operations networking, order the RHAON empowered PN151R



Applications


• Virtually any application where directional control and arrayability are critical issues and outstanding sonic performance is required.


• Distributed systems in sport arenas and stadiums.


• Multi-channel A/V playback systems, live sound and music systems in clubs and disco's (with optional subwoofers).


• Side fill in all types of large sound reinforcement systems.


• Array modules for theatrical and concert sound systems, sound reinforcement systems in Houses of Worship.
