RCF HDP-45a

Richard Penrose 6:36 AM - 8 October, 2018
I’ve just seen that RCF are bringing out new models in their HD line. The most interesting one for me is the HDP-45a..

Watchm.youtube.com

Some of the more interesting features for me are :-

1/ New amp module derived from TT+ series
2/ RDNet
3/ New cabinet design (HD35 and HD15 also have this)
4/ 1.5” compression driver (745a uses 1.4”)

Other features look similar to the 745 and NX45

133 dB Max SPL
2200 WATT 2-way power
1.5” Titanium Compression Driver, 4.0” v.c.
Neodimium 15” Neodimium Woofer 3.5” v.c.
750 Hz crossover point for perfect vocal reproduction
90°x60°, wide dispersion constant directivity horn
FiRPHASE
Ultra-Light weight
705x442x386 mm - 27.76x17.40x15.20 in (HxWxD)
20 kg / 44.09 lbs

This looks like it could be a step up from the 745a?

So it's like the HD version of the ART 700 tops?

What's the difference between the two anyway other than the grill?
Richard Penrose 12:35 PM - 8 October, 2018
Pretty much all the things I mentioned above :-

1/ New 2200w amp module derived from the TT Series (745a has 1400w)
2/ RDNet features
3/ Slightly larger 1.5” compression driver (745a has 1.4”)
4) Different 750hz crossover point (745a has 650hz).

The amp in the DHP has various DSP settings. Basically an improvement on the 754a and it’s not butt ugly which means a hell of a lot to mobile DJs. Definitely want to hear these and compare them to the NX45a.

Glad to see they added PowerCON in and out on them as well.

is that 2200 RMS or Peak?
577er 2:48 AM - 15 November, 2018
PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAK That number is already cartoonish enough, you want it to be bigger?

I wonder if these speakers have a high pass filter built in?...or are they like the 745a that do not.
Arjun B 7:03 PM - 31 January, 2019
They have the DSP module on the back, so im pretty sure they do.
Johnnynights 7:28 PM - 31 January, 2019
Awesome if they do..a little later this year I might switch out my srx815ps and get these to go with my bassboss subs.

They appear to have presets and high pass filters.

Nice I'm really looking into them...I need to hear these in person if there out yet.
Arjun B 7:01 PM - 2 February, 2019
They're probably going to sound similar to the 745a, nx45a etc but better since the amp module on the hdp-45a is new. Im pretty sure RCF is just using the same ND940 HF driver in all of these cabs, the only difference being the amp modules and the wood/plastic box

the model on the site is HDM...i guess its the one ?
specs/desc/pics is the same
just askin'
Richard Penrose 11:51 AM - 16 April, 2019
Yes that's the one. The name changed for original announcement.
577er 3:25 PM - 16 April, 2019
If you look closely at the plastic ridge around the outside edge, it slopes in at the top and bottom just enough that the grill can be damaged... annoying, but I can't wait to hear them and compare them to the new HD35A which are the same weight despite the smaller VCs.
