The black TT5-A Active High-Output 2-Way Speaker from RCF is high-power, active, and designed specifically for high-quality indoor and outdoor near field sound amplification. It is suitable for mid- and near-field sound reinforcement, live performances, and events.

It is equipped with 1,600W digital amplification, of which 1,100W are delivered from the low-frequency amplifier and 500W from the high-frequency digital module. The low-frequency transducer is a powerful 15” hypervented neodymium woofer with a 4” voice coil, which provides a controlled and precise bass response for indoor applications such as theaters. A 2” titanium dome compression driver loaded to a 90 x 50° dispersion constant-directivity horn provides high-frequency coverage.

A fully optimized T-pole design minimizes flux modulation, and the dual-forced air venting system assures efficient voice coil ventilation for minimum power compression and higher power handling. The integration of 1,600W, 2-way digital amplification and advanced digital processing helps achieve appropriate levels for distortion, noise, and thermal efficiency.

TT5-A is equipped with an input board, which features XLR in/out, gain reduction, time delay, speaker presets, RDNet ready option, RDNet bypass switch, 4 status LEDs, and powerCON in/out. TT5-A also features a 96 kHz, 32-bit DSP processing and a dedicated networking board. Using the proprietary RDNet protocol, it is possible to monitor all the system parameters from the input to the status of each amplifier.

With DSP on board each cabinet, it is possible to address to single cabinets or groups of cabinets specific presets or modifications of parameters like gain, equalization, or delay. Since the RDNet protocol is based on RS-485 communication protocol, it is very stable and it is possible to send and receive data over a simple XLR cable.

TT5-A features a multifunctional rear encoder to easily control all the speaker functions (such as gain reduction, delay, speaker presets) even without network connection. Foam-backed grilles hide the drivers from view for pleasing aesthetics. The speaker is equipped with a complete set of integrated rigging mechanics for rental or installation. Dedicated accessories to create clusters are available for purchase separately.

Amplification

Class D Power

Two independent digital amplifiers, 1,100W for low frequency and 500W for the high frequency driver, deliver astonishing output power, making the TT5-A a powerful 2-way module. These class D amplifiers offer hi-fi sound, low distortion with negligible quiescent noise, and stable burst response.

Incredible Efficiency

The amplification module is housed in a separate chamber and mechanically insulated from the cabinet vibration for reliability in long time operation. Thanks to the efficiency of the amplifiers, no fans are needed for quiet operation of the speaker.

Advanced Processing

The 32-bit, floating point digital signal processing at 96 kHz takes care of 2-way system crossover and transducer alignments, 8 programmable system equalization, programmable output time delay, input sensitivity reduction, soft limiter and gentle compressor for high signal inputs, RMS current monitoring and transducers protection, and input noise reduction.

A specially developed algorithm takes care of the frequency-dependent soft limiter, offering to the listener the same linearity of the system from very low level signals to the maximum output of the amplifiers.

AC RDNet In-Out Plug

A dedicated processing area is available through the RDNet input board (sold separately). You have many options available on RDNet, including remote monitoring, special custom equalizations, high and low pass, single way solo and mute, and many other options.

Rear Panel

The rear panel features a simple rotary encoder to control all speaker functions. A bright 7-segment clear display helps in changing the settings of the system. The only switch on the panel allows you to set to local or remote control. A simple command from RDNet totally disables the input panel to allow you to take exclusive remote control of the speaker.

Components

HF Design

The HF transducer is a high-performance, 4" diaphragm compression driver with a 2" exit throat. The pure titanium molded diaphragm offers remarkable sonic quality, extended to high audible frequencies, which ensures consistent power handling and reliability. The diaphragm and suspension are precision formed from 0.002" (0.05mm) thick pure titanium. At the point where the titanium suspension is bonded to the assembly ring, a special dampening adhesive has been applied in order to further reduce and eliminate distortion creating resonances.

Direct Drive Voice Coil Assembly

The voice coil assembly is designed using a high-strength, high-temperature Kapton voice coil former and a rectangular profile copper clad aluminum wire, and is assembled using specially formulated adhesives. Proprietary curing processes ensure assembly strength and safe operation even under extreme thermal conditions. The top of the former is bent and bonded directly to the edge of the titanium diaphragm, resulting in a Direct Drive configuration. Direct Drive ensures optimal transfer of energy between the voice coil and the dome assembly, providing smooth, extended frequency response beyond 10 kHz, reducing break up modes, and lowering distortion. This assembly delivers high power handling along with great mechanical and thermal properties that make the compression driver reliable and robust.

Woofer Design

TT5-A's mid bass transducer is designed to provide great frequency response linearity with very low distortion. A strong neodymium magnetic structure ensures precision and a 4" voice coil design provides high power handling. The dual-forced air venting system ensures efficient voice coil ventilation to minimize the power compression and provide high power handling.

Inside/Outside Voice Coil

The speaker uses a voice coil that combines the advantages of inside/outside technology and the quality of polyimide-imide materials (wire resins and formers resins). This inside/outside coil offers many advantages: the dissipation surface and adhesion area to the former is doubled. During thermal expansion, the former is squeezed between inside and outside layers, offering optimum mechanical resistance.

The inside/outside formers are made from polyimide-imide fiberglass and the area between the coil and the cone is a triple layer of Nomex-fiberglass-Nomex for optimum stiffness and accurate sound transfer.

Acoustic Design

TT5-A features an advanced acoustic design, digital power amplifiers, and a group of innovative processing algorithms that, running at 96 kHz, take care of the speaker's linearity and its dynamic control.

Cabinet

Water-Resistant Baltic Birch Plywood

The cabinet is made in high-quality Baltic Birch plywood with every layer glued with special adhesive that makes the cabinet completely water-resistant even before the painting process.

Heavy-Duty Polyurea Paint

Special polyurea paint is used to create a thick, full coating of the cabinet, making it highly resistant to scratches and bumps.

Heavily Braced Internal Structure

The internal structure is heavily braced to survive long-term use and transportation and all the parts are assembled on metal inserts with metric screws. On the top and bottom of the cabinet, 2 large metal brackets are integrated for safe rigging day after day.

Handles

The cabinet features 2 die-cast aluminum side handles, powder coated and with a rubber handgrip. Thanks to the internal scoop design, it is possible to use the handle in 3 different directions to facilitate transport, positioning, and loading.

Rigging

The speaker offers many rigging possibilities: Top M20 insert; pole mount on the bottom; top and bottom fly tracks (6x); side quick lock pins (4x); side M10 rigging points (4x).
