Alcons Pro-Ribbons Deliver FLIXCinema’s Platinum Quality
FLIXCinema is a chain of Indonesian movie theatres, and the Platinum Hall at the company’s first venue delivers the highest quality experience, which is why an Alcons CRMSC pro-ribbon audio system was chosen for it. Kek Chung Sie (or KC) of Jakarta-based KC Sound was asked to design the Platinum Hall’s audio system.“The Platinum Hall only seats 24 people, but they are willing to pay a premium price for the best movie experience and I felt they deserved nothing but the best available reference sound quality,” he says. KC’s acoustic calculations showed that an Alcons CRMSC pro-ribbon system would deliver the ultimate sound
experience for the audience. He specified a system comprising three CRMSCompact Cinema Reference Monitor System in bi-amp mode, 12 CRMSC-SR compact reference surround loudspeakers and a CB211slFV Largerformat shallow subwoofer system, with front vent for baffle-wall mounting. The system is powered and controlled by three Sentinel3 amplified loudspeaker controllers, plus an ALC2 with DDP Driver for the CB211. “I was able to demonstrate to FLIXCinema that the CRMSC system offered the best solution and I was very glad they agreed, because it meant we could deliver the first Alcons Audio system to be installed in Indonesian cinemas,” says KC. For a premiumpriced experience, the equipment has to be the very best, a fact recognised by Yudho Rahutomo, Cinema Technology Manager at FLIXCinema. “They are excellent speakers! Great dynamics, clean and clear, very crisp highs with no distortion. The sub-bass is also very full and impactful. The system was expensive, but worth having in our cinema,” he says.
