The ARCS II features one 15’’ neodymium LF driver in a bass-reflex tuned enclosure and one 3’’ neodymium diaphragm compression driver coupled to a DOSC® waveguide. The ARCS II is based on an active 2-way design with a nominal impedance of 8 ohms for both the HF and the LF section. The ARCS II cabinet is made of first grade Baltic birch plywood to ensure maximum acoustical and mechanical integrity.

The ARCS II enclosure operates over the 50 Hz to 20 kHz nominal frequency bandwidth. This response can be lowered down to 25 Hz with the addition of the SB28 subwoofer.

The DOSC® HF waveguide generates a 22.5° symmetric x 60° asymmetric (-20°/+40°) directivity pattern. These values correspond either to the horizontal x vertical coverage angles, for an ARCS II enclosure standing vertically, or to the vertical x horizontal coverage angles, for an ARCS II enclosure in the radial orientation.

The ARCS II rigging system allows assembling a horizontal or vertical array with a constant curvature. The DOSC® waveguide in the HF region allows the system to be arrayed without breaking the inter-element acoustic coupling. The WST® (Wavefront Sculpture Technology) criteria are then fulfilled, so that such an array can be qualified as a true line source. An ARCS II line source provides a smooth tonal response and a coverage that is free of secondary lobes over the entire frequency range.
