Ascendo Immersive Audio has introduced four versions of the much-anticipated CCRM15 speaker systems, which are now available in passive and powered active models and with Titanium or Beryllium drivers.
The speed of sound through Beryllium is nearly 2.5 times faster than through aluminum or titanium and therefore, the first breakup will occur at a much higher frequency—well outside the audible range.
It is precisely these characteristics that give the CCRM15 Beryllium the ability to reproduce amazing detail and clarity, free of resonances, so even the finest details can be experienced.
Geoffrey Heinzel, Partner & Director of International Sales & Marketing at Ascendo said: “When we started our venture in 2014, we wrote, ‘The CCRM12-MKII marks the absolute spearhead in the field of coaxial cinema monitors’. How time flies,” states
“Fast forward to 2021, this statement is being replaced by the fact that the newly released CCRM15 Beryllium is taking this position.
“The 15” point source axi-symmetric speaker has been designed as a screen channel for large theaters as left, center, and right speakers or can be used for very large theaters as a surround bed speaker.
“The CCRM15 Beryllium is an extremely impressive and extraordinary performing musical speaker system, that leaves nothing to be desired.”
Although it is one of the most expensive materials used to make speaker diaphragms, Beryllium possesses the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio of any known metal and can deliver dramatically superior results when properly incorporated into a speaker design.
In the Active CCRM15 Beryllium, the expertly engineered Beryllium compression tweeter is centrically arranged in the back of the 15-inch mid-woofer unit, and both drivers are driven by a DSP-controlled two-channel digital amplifier.
Ascendo’s proprietary DSP technology works in combination with the enclosure and coaxial driver design to deliver ultra-precise and incredibly fast impulse response.
Each channel of CCRM15 Beryllium is capable of incredible SPL levels, but also the more impressive dynamic contrasts from whispering dialogues to explosive effects.
Even the most complex film passages with extreme dynamic requirements are reproduced at the highest clarity and lowest distortion.
Ascendo’s advanced audio-over-IP technology and a sophisticated system user interface are employed for an unprecedented level of control and flexibility to the system calibrator.
