Established in 1949
RCF was established in Reggio Emilia in 1949, focusing on the design and production of ribbon microphones and taking the name from the initials of the three shareholders. The first products sold were microphones and loudspeakers. In the late ’60s, concert sound was going electric, and many loudspeaker pioneers were searching for high-powered devices to use in their designs. RCF was one of the first European OEM suppliers for international brands, thanks to the company’s experience gained building high power transducers.
RCF Today - Technology Matters
The design process at RCF is an evolving concept. The engineering team has an all-inclusive approach to product design, allowing the company to keep at the forefront of technology and materials. The modern manufacturing facility in Italy follows the same idea. All components are dynamically refined and full control of the manufacturing process provides the perfect environment to augment quality and reliability rapidly. From the transducer’s voice coil to the management software, each component is designed and constantly improved internally in a fully-comprehensive smart workflow.
