Full-range versatile two-way loudspeaker


The black C5212-96 Acustica Series 500W Passive Speaker from RCF is a full-range versatile two-way loudspeaker offering substantial power and efficiency for several professional applications. It can be used as a main unit in permanent installations, or as a supplementary fill in large speaker systems.

The Constant Matching Design technology helps guarantee an optimal transition between the high-frequency horn polar pattern and the low-frequency woofer directivity. The hi-frequency transducer is a 1.4” RCF precision compression driver with a 2.5” voice coil. The low-frequency transducer is a 12” RCF precision woofer with a 3” voice coil.

The speaker also includes a high-level crossover network that features low induction values in series with the woofer. This innovation, named LICC (Low Impedance Compensated Crossover), delays reduction, reduces phase shift, and lends superior transient response. Dynamic high-frequency driver protection is accomplished with the RCF AMCDP (Active MOSFET Compression Driver Protection System), which is chosen to complement the driver power curve. The internal crossover can be easily bypassed for bi-amplification.

The cabinet is made of Baltic birch (heavy duty painted) and allows different installation options. It comes equipped with top and bottom multiplates for either wall or suspended mounting with chains. The installation points are available on its rear panel as well. The steel front grille is protected with a double layer polyurethane fabric and the front RCF logo is easily rotatable. Connections are made through 2 Neutrik SpeakON NL4 connectors (audio input and parallel link output).

Australian Shipping Via DHL
DHL offers a great express shipping service to Australia from New Zealand. We are proud to be able to offer express shipping to main cities on the east coast of Australia, within the same timeframe ( If not quicker ) than local Australian courier companies. Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, service standards for these main centers was overnight. However these services have been impacted greatly, and as such the overnight service has been suspended. Overnight shipping will likely resume once things have returned to normal.

Qualifying main centers include:

  • Brisbane
  • Sydney
  • Adelaide

Whilst this service is extremely efficient and will likely be delivered within 1-2 days 99.9% of the time, it cannot be guaranteed. In the case where something were to go wrong with your delivery and it doesn’t arrive within the specified time frame, in most cases it will be delivered by the next day.

While not all major cities are eligible for overnight delivery, they still benefit from this great service. Other centers throughout Australia will have a typical delivery ETA of 2-4 days. (Excluding rural delivery address where this ETA can be extended to an additional three or more days).

If you require urgent shipping and you don’t reside in one of the cities stated above, please contact us and we can find a solution that works best for you.

Please Note: Shipping via DHL is not available to PO boxes and/ or parcel boxes etc.
