|Turbosound is releasing an innovative sound
reinforcement system at Frankfurt Prolight + Sound 2004, hall 8, stand
J52. Turbosound's most efficient loudspeaker design to date, the new system is easily scaleable to suit specific acoustic and venue requirements ranging from small clubs and auditoria, to the largest arenas and stadia.
The new system comprises a set of proprietary transducers, which operate over four individual frequency bands, and are divided between two identically-sized modular enclosures. It incorporates many patented designs, with the key element being the deployment of unique equal-path-length multi-cellular horns, or "polyhorns", to create a phase-coherent wavefront. The system permits individual wavefronts to coincide seamlessly with the physical curvature of an array, to eliminate comb filtering effects. Due to the design's focused directivity, the system is intuitively adaptable to a huge range of room size and audience coverage requirements.
High stability neodymium magnet structures are used throughout, offering greater efficiency, better thermal stability and reduction in overall weight. Enclosure dimensions are exactly divisible into both US and European truck sizes, while the integral flying hardware enables the boxes - with their rotatable mid-high section - to rig horizontally or vertically, and allows cabinets to be pre-assembled on wheel dollies for easier load-ins.
Also being launched at Prolight+Sound 2004 is a new range of digitally powered QLight loudspeaker products. Utilising 96kHz DSP technology, they boast 112dB of dynamic range and operate at more than 80% overall efficiency. The power amplifier runs far cooler than more conventional designs, removing the need for a heat sink and resulting in significant weight reduction. Auto-sensing power supplies make them extremely easy to use anywhere in the world.
