The most powerful amplifier in it’s class
With 2,100 Watts of power, the 2-channel ART 9 Class-D amplifier is 50% more powerful than previous models, able to manage extremely high sound pressure levels with an ultra-fast attack, realistic transient response, and very low heat loss.
ART 9 is very energy-efficient so there is no need for a cooling fan – the amplifier is attached to a solid aluminum heat exchanger in the back of the unit – with no moving parts. Being physically connected with the internal frame, the amplifier is firm and solid within the cabinet. The input circuit features a new low distortion design with an advanced safety limiter, maintaining the true character of the input signal at all levels. All ART 9 amplifiers are designed according to EN62368-1 for maximum safety and present a Switch Mode Power Supply section joining high-efficiency with minimum weight.
One input, the one that sounds good
Plug the output of your mixer or audio device into the Line-in Combo (TRS+XLR) Input. The extremely low noise input circuit will deliver an unaltered and clean signal to the power amplifier.
1 – Balanced Line Input
2 – Balanced Line Link/Output
3 – Volume Control [rotate to adjust the volume] 4 – Status LEDs: Signal [green – safe input level] and Overload [red – limiting in action] 5 – Preset Selection Button
6 – Presets:
LINEAR – Finely tuned sound for best clarity
BOOST – Enhanced loudness for background music or punchy bass
STAGE – Perfect tuning for stage monitoring
7 – Aluminum back panel
Low-frequency transducer design gains more stability over higher currents, with less distortion, and is highly efficient in terms of heat dissipation. RCF quality control is very strict. Our woofers are tested with a 200 hours continuous signal to stress the transducer at extreme levels. Only the best woofer design can fit ART 9.
The advanced design of ART9 lies within the housing of the speaker. The new True Resistive Waveguide is the result of several refinements in both the transducers’ and the vented ports’ design with Finite Element Analysis, and constant measurement in RCF anechoic chambers. Thanks to FiRPHASE technology, the new shape, and the placement of the ports, the speaker now acts as a single ideal source for a perfect sound image. Acoustically, the TRW waveguide mimics a resonance-free pure resistive load reducing the high-frequency distortion of a classic horn. With its asymmetrical sound shaping, the coverage angle of the waveguide provides constant directivity to the entire listening area and improved stereo panorama.

About RCF. RCF BEGAN PRODUCING TRANSDUCERS IN 1949. The first products sold were microphones and loudspeakers. In the late ’60s, concert sound was going electric, and many loudspeaker pioneers were searching for high-powered devices to use in their designs. RCF was one of the first European OEM suppliers for international brands, thanks to the company’s experience gained building high power transducers. In-depth know-how in transducers and electronics provided the perfect technological culture to allow RCF to develop complete pro audio systems, bringing the company to a leading position in multiple audio markets over the years. From Hi-Fi to public address, portable loudspeakers and big concert systems.
RCF‘S PASSION FOR PERFECTION DRIVES THE DESIGN OF EVERY PRODUCT.
All products and components are conceived and developed internally, to maximise the end results. The extensive catalogue covers all aspects of the audio chain and meets the needs of musicians, sound engineers, architects, and system integrators. Whatever your audio requirement, RCF has the right solution.
EACH COMPONENT IS DESIGNED AND CONSTANTLY IMPROVED INTERNALLY
The design process at RCF is an evolving concept. The engineering team has an all-inclusive approach to product design, allowing the company to keep at the forefront of technology and materials. The modern manufacturing facility in Italy follows the same idea. All components are dynamically refined and full control of the manufacturing process provides the perfect environment to augment quality and reliability rapidly. From the transducer’s voice coil to the management software, each component is designed and constantly improved internally in a fully-comprehensive smart workflow.
