Installed Sound Applications
Turbosound, the British-based manufacturer of live performance and installed-sound loudspeakers, is launching two new models in its TXD series of passive loudspeakers, on Stand No. EE20 at PLASA 2003. Also being shown is the first model in a new range of TSB sub-bass enclosures, as well as further developments in Turbosound's QLight series.
Introduced earlier this year, Turbosound's TXD series is aimed at the club, DJ and live performance markets, and has already proved to be one of the company's fastest-selling product lines. Being launched at PLASA is the compact TXD-081, a passive 8" two-way loudspeaker designed for club, bar and restaurants installs, plus the TXD-252 - a 2 x 15"/2" trapezoidal combo. Both the new models share the same advanced features that have made the TXD systems such a rapid success - a thermal overload protection system (TOPS), which ensures high frequency driver reliability, plus robust birch plywood construction, high-grade crossover components and built-in rigging points.
Turbosound's new range of efficient yet compact sub-bass cabinets is kicked off by the TSB-110. A dual-coil 10" band-pass design, it enables up to six satellite speakers to be connected via the internal passive crossover in a stereo configuration. The TSB-110 is powerful enough to generate up to 125dB max SPL (peak) of sub-bass energy, from an enclosure volume of less than 2 cubic feet.
In Turbosound's QLight series, the self-powered TQ-308SP has secured its place in the corporate and audio-visual dry hire market, and is now joined by an all-passive version, the TQ-308. A space-saving, asymmetrical trapezoidal cabinet makes the TQ-308 ideal for installation use, as well as rental applications, and also allows it to double as a powerful yet discreet floor monitor. The three-way TQ-440, mainstay of the QLight series of high performance portable loudspeakers, is the subject of a backwards-compatible performance upgrade that improves high frequency directivity and optimises the co-axial driver loading.
