ULTRA COMPACT, MULTI-PURPOSE STAGE MONITOR
ST 12-SMA is a multi-purpose active loudspeaker, designed to be the everyday monitoring tool for rental companies and professional musicians. With its ultra compact design together with high output levels, ST 12-SMA is the answer to a wide variety of production requirements. It is particularly effective for small bands and personal use.
Use it as a stage monitor. The “FLAT” equalization mode is set for monitoring applications, when the system is placed on the floor.
With an easy 90° rotation and a simple click on the FLAT/BOOST switch, the ST 12-SMA turns into a loudspeaker, with the equalization settings in “BOOST” mode.
For the best visual impact RCF logo can be turned accordingly by 90°, thanks to a simple rotating movement.
TUNED FOR YOUR VOICE
ST Series provides a clear reproduction of midrange frequencies, with a specific focus on the voice
PERFECTLY FLAT RESPONSE CURVE
This turns into a maximum rejection to positive feedback between the stage monitor and the microphone, ensuring immunity from the Larsen effect (microphone-mixer-monitor chain) for an enhanced freedom of movement during live performances
IN-HOUSE ENGINEERING AND PRODUCTION
The ST Series monitoring systems feature professional RCF transducers that ensure a better performance and great vocal reproduction. Woofers and compression drivers are 100% in-house precision built – our team takes care of all production stages, from the first design to the final testing. Engineering and production occur in our factory, drawing on RCF’s superior moulding and assembly technologies, as well as a highly specialized know-how and 60 years’ experience dedicated to achieving extremely high standards.
ACCURATE AND POWERFUL WOOFER
ST 12-SMA features a professional 12’’ high power woofer, 2.5’’ voice coil, delivering extremely accurate punchy bass and precise low frequency control, making it an ideal stage monitor/speaker for personal use and small bands.
The custom-made compression driver ensures a transparent midrange and extreme accuracy. It features a high performance 1-inch exit throat and 1.4’’ voice coil, with a frequency range up to 20 kHz. A particularly resistant kind of polyimide is used for the diaphragm and suspension, in order to increase the driver’s mechanical strenght and stability.
ULTRA-LIGHT STATE OF THE ART DIGITAL AMPLIFIERS
ST Series two-way speakers are equipped with a new generation digital amplifier, resulting in very high output, extremely low distortion and an incredibly natural sound. The limited weight of our digital amplifier facilitates transportation and thus ensures maximum usability on the road.
Each amplifier presents both XLR and jack inputs, XLR output link, volume, EQ Mode (FLAT/BOOST), MIC/LINE sensitivity switch & VDE input connector. It features a solid mechanical aluminium structure which not only increases the amplifier’s stability during transportation, but also helps in heat dissipation.
The integrated DSP manages crossover, equalisation, soft limiter, compressor and dynamic bass boost.
Each amplifier presents both XLR In/Out connectors and a Jack input for the maximum connection versatility.
Set the FLAT or BOOST equalization with a simple click. “BOOST” is recommended when the system is used as a loudspeaker, on a floor stand. “FLAT” is optimized for stage monitoring, when the system is on the floor.
A useful Mic/Line switch to adjust the input sensitivity is provided. When used just for a speech, the “Mic” setting allows to use a microphone directly with the speaker. Set the selector to “Line” when using the speaker for live music or playback.
ST Series features a Birch plywood cabinet, finished with an extremely resistant paint for an extensive use on the road. Every detail is developed in order to optimize acoustical performance and ensure easiness of transport.
CURVED PROFILE FOR A BETTER SOUND
Two sides show a distinctive inward curve. The reason behind this original design choice is related to sound optimisation. In a cabinet with a standard design, sound waves reflect on the cabinet’s edges, thus creating undesired effects of absorption and disturbance or decreasing sound coverage. In our ST Series sound waves don’t hit the sides because of the slightly concave profile with moulded edges that helps avoiding all acoustical drawbacks.
HEAVY-DUTY FRONT GRILLE
Instead of being simply flat, the grille shows a distinctive design with 3 sides. This arch-inspired structure adds resistance to the whole system, creating a more balanced distribution of forces when the stage monitor is subject to stress and pressure, as often occurs during tours and live performances.
ONLY 4 INVISIBLE SCREWS
This charming cabinet is firmly anchored by 4 screws only. The screws are carefully tighten and hidden into small built-in holes, for a sleek and discreet aesthetics of the cabinet. Invisibile bolts are also less subject to wear and tear.
ULTRA-RESISTANT STEEL POLE MOUNT
Thanks to the integrated steel pole mount, the ST 12-SMA can be turned into a standard speaker in vertical configuration with a few simple moves. The use of steel instead of plastic makes the whole system particularly reliable and robust.
PERFORATED HEX GRILLE
The hexagonal shape of the holes is chosen with the purpose to maximise the empty space on the grill, thus making sound propagation clearer, with less absorption and reflection. The perforated hex grille allows the sound to propagate freely, with less disturbance if compared to circles or other shapes. At the same time ST Series grilles are particularly strong and rugged, ideal for use on the stage.
INNOVATIVE GRILLE FIXING
The grille is fixed by specialized technicians in our Italian factory, with an innovative component that avoids grille vibration: a small isolating rubber element placed between the cabinet’s edges and the grille, in order to avoid undesidered acoustical interference due to the grille’s oscillation.
A special transparent-to-sound foam backing on the inside of the grille ensures protection from dust and humidity.
ERGONOMIC SIDE HANDLE
An ergonomic recessed handle is positioned on the side of the speaker.
PROFESSIONAL ADAPTER SLEEVE - P/N 13360111
Steel professional adapter sleeve for loudspeaker stands. Integrated expanding mandrel system which provides a tight and firm fit for the speaker. The moveable plastic splints separate the speaker from the stand creating a vibration-free connection.
POLE MOUNT WITH RING LOCK - P/N 13360110
Steel pole mount accessory for a satellite loudspeaker on a subwoofer. Both ends of the pole mount are fitted with an expanding mandrel system for a tight and vibration-free fit for the base and satellite speakers.
FLOOR STAND FOR LOUDSPEAKERS - P/N 13360035
Aluminum speaker floor stand with folding base and telescopic rod, tube diameter 35mm.
Equipped with damping system and safety plug; central die-cast joint.
