The Red Dot. The prestigious mark of quality and innovation. This is an award that stands for brilliance in design. And the RCF ART 712-A MK4 Active Speaker has earned it.
It’s not easy winning that award. It’s one of the most renowned and difficult-to-achieve awards in the world. But in the Product Design category, the Art 7 series managed to receive the Red Dot quality seal for design, awarded by a jury of top-class experts.
A unique shape and style has been developed thanks to careful research carried out by RCF’s very own R&D team, and completed in collaboration with the ID-EE industrial design studio. Every single aspect of the series, down to the smallest of details, has been meticulously crafted to deliver next-level technical and functional characteristics. Aesthetics, acoustic performance, and digital technology have been fused together to create a system that is truly worthy of your sound. No matter what your sound may be.
Proprietary FiRPHASE filtering technology
Experience true transparency. With RCF’s proprietary advanced FiRPHASE filters, the Art 7 series delivers every single sonic detail and dynamic nuance with phenomenal clarity. The filters work to distribute your sound coherently across the entire area of coverage with zero phase distortions. This keeps system latency to a minimum, and ensures that the stereo imaging of your system remains perfect.
Built for performance
RCF are renowned for their transducer designs. The Art 7 series is equipped with precision-crafted woofers and compression drivers, delivering the entire audio spectrum with astounding impact and definition. Each transducer has been carefully engineered to combat distortion, withstand consistent high power levels, and reproduce sound with absolute purity.
High-tech materials and over 60 years of dedication to sound have allowed RCF to achieve this with every single driver they produce. As pioneers of transducer innovation, RCF bring you state-of-the-art magnetic circuits combined with new voice coil ventilation systems and assemblies. The result? The unadulterated sonic bliss that your sound deserves.
