Ascendo Launches Four Versions Of CCRM15 Speaker Systems

Ascendo Immersive Audio has enhanced its coaxial cinema monitor offering with new product launches.

The company has launched four versions of the much-anticipated CCRM15 speaker systems, available in passive and powered active models and with Titanium or Beryllium drivers.

"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," said Geoffrey Heinzel, Partner & Director International Sales & Marketing. "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 theatres as left, centre, and right speakers or can be used for very large theatres 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. The speed of sound through Beryllium is nearly 2.5 times faster than through aluminium or titanium. Therefore, the first breakup will occur at a much higher frequency—well outside the audible range. Breakup occurs when the cone partially vibrates at certain audible frequencies and therefore isn’t entirely pistonic throughout its range. This leads to non-linearities in the amplitude response as well as stored energy in the time domain. It is precisely these characteristics that give the CCRM15 Beryllium the ability to reproduce amazing detail and clarity, free of resonances, so that even the finest details are all there to be experienced.

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. Their results merge perfectly and allow for a time and phase-coherent lifelike reproduction of all-acoustic events with reference levels in every seat. The brain can therefore relax and stop trying to process the timing and phase errors far too common in other speaker designs.

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. The volume ranges your home theatre speakers need to be able to handle without audible distortion is huge, especially if you look for a reference level director's cut performance - this level difference from softest to loudest sounds yields incredible dynamic range. Even the most complex film passages with extreme dynamic requirements are reproduced at the highest clarity and lowest distortion. Imagine a life-like drum solo rendered exactly to the point by hearing and feeling the tremendous dynamic leaps of a bass drum and snare, while at the same time the humming of cymbals fading away airily into the dark silence of the room giving way to the tiniest of fine details.

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. When combined with Ascendo's SMS Reference subwoofers you will experience unimaginable realism of sound paired with sheer limitless dynamics.
