RCF: Audio Systems Since 1949
The first products sold were microphones and loudspeakers, the so-called voice systems. Around the end of the 60’s, with the rise of pop and rock music, the sound of live music evolves considerably and becomes electric. It was the time of the pioneers in the design of audio systems for amplification. These manufacturers are looking for high power transducers to use in their designs. They find the best performance in RCF technology. That’s why Emiliana has established itself as one of Europe’s leading OEMs. RCF’s deep experience in the field of transducers and especially electronics has been a natural launch track. Fundamental to the development of complete audio systems and that has led the company to be a leader in multiple audio markets. They range from Hi-Fi to Public Address (commonly PA) to portable audio systems or large concert systems.
