Turbosound has added to its TA-500 family of professional point-source loudspeakers with the TA-500t and TA-500tDP touring enclosures. These two products are aimed at regional, national and theater touring applications, taking advantage of a fully integrated rigging system.
The TA-500t is a trapezoidal, switchable, bi-amp/tri-amp three-way enclosure containing a 1-inch HF driver on a Polyhorn™ device, a 10-inch MF driver on a Polyhorn™ device and a Turbo-loaded 15-inch LF driver, and covers the frequency range from 60 to 20k Hz. All drive units employ neodymium magnets to keep the cabinet’s net weight to 125.4 pounds, and the TA-500t is supplied with a detachable, stackable wheelboard to aid handling and trucking. Its 50×25-degree (HxV) dispersion pattern focuses energy on audience areas with minimum overspill and allows the creation of clusters with seamless arrayability.
The self-powered TA-500tDP cabinets are fully networkable, allowing real-time control and monitoring of operating parameters with a PC and TurboDrive™ software over a BVNet network, or even remotely over a VPN. The cabs offer integrated, high-efficiency, Class-D amplifiers and onboard electronics.
