bc543 PLASA2010 saw a great deal of interest lavished on Alcons Audio's new range of subwoofers, the high output BQ211 quarter-wave loaded, all-carbon 21" subwoofer and the BC543 triple, all-carbon-coned triple 18" in bass-reflex configuration: a self-contained cardioid subwoofer or: with cardioid controllable dispersion pattern.
 
Particular interest in the new products was shown by live sound engineers, both being the first introductions of the upcoming LR24 mid-sized pro-ribbon line-array touring system. However, both can also be used with all of the company's current pro-ribbon line-arrays.
 
"PLASA was a good opportunity to meet up with existing clients and make new contacts," says Alcons' Tom Back. "The annual Alcons dinner on Tuesday was also an enjoyable gathering of Alcons Network members and partners. It is always a great opportunity to 'talk audio' and enjoy the global personal relationships between Alcons users."
