RCF is based in Italy and has been one of the premier speaker manufacturers for years. In the 90's they designed one of the first powered speakers, the ART300A. Shortly thereafter they designed and built powered speakers for a famous company based in Washington State USA until about 2002. Then they started building and marketing powered and unpowered speakers under the RCF brand in the USA in about 2003. RMC Audio was one of the first dealers in the United States at that time so we are very familiar with the company and the product.
