New TCS series as well as Flex Array and Impact at PLASA 2008

Visitors to InfoComm 2008, Las Vegas, already saw a preview of a brand new TCS range of Turbosound sound contracting loudspeaker products offering sound quality and contractor-friendly features. The Flex Array system and the Impact series of installation loudspeakers had been showing at the prolight + sound show 2008 in Frankfurt in March already. All new products as well as Turbosound's range of know audio solutions will be exhibited at PLASA 2008, London, stand E22
“We have worked hard to ensure that our product range continues to reflect the needs of the market,” adds Turbosound’s Managing Director Simon Blackwood, “and this is borne out by how well Flex Array has already been received. The combination of our brand new line array technology alongside Turbosound’s proven virtual point source experience provides an incredibly versatile, one-box-fits-all product that is ideal for a huge variety of applications and we’re looking forward to demonstrating its potential at InfoComm.” Turbosound will be demonstrating Flex Array as well as products from the NuQ professional portable series, alongside the Aspect TA-500, TA-890 and TA-880 concert sound loudspeakers in Demo Room N102 each day. Turbosound’s new TCS sound contracting range will also be demonstrated, featuring patent-pending Dendritic waveguides in multiple dispersion options, IP54 weather resistance, choice of white or black finish and self-powered options, all backed up with industry standard EASE data.
Flex Array is a medium–scale professional sound reinforcement system that combines elements of Turbosound’s patented virtual point source system with well proven line array technology, resulting in a versatile loudspeaker product adaptable to a huge variety of venue types. Its rotatable mid/high section provides the key to rapid conversion from line array to point source mode, while two fully integrated rigging systems cater for both vertical and horizontal flown orientations with virtually no external parts.
The Flex Array system has been designed from the ground up, resulting from a three-year development cycle closely related to the development of the Polyhorn, and utilises Turbosound’s patent pending Dendritic horn, which produces a line source element with superior directional qualities together with Turbosound clarity and definition. All neodymium drive units ensure that weight is kept to a minimum for easy trucking and handling.
Flex Array is fully arrayable with flygear integrated into the box for rapid setup with no external parts, or can be used with external yokes and brackets for semi-permanent and fixed installations. The horn-loaded low frequency cabinet utilises a high power neodymium 18” drive unit and can either be flown with mid/highs, or ground stacked. Digitally self-powered versions of both cabinets with integrated lightweight Class D amplifier modules are also available.
The Impact series caters for the style-led areas of the fixed install market, building on the success of the Impact 50 and Impact 80 since their launch over a decade ago. Now in elegantly styled, paintable, injection moulded enclosures with IP54 weather resistance, the Impact series loudspeakers are designed tio suit fixed installations in cafés, bars, houses of worship and leisure facilities, as well as for corporate events.
The Impact series boasts a very neat and practical mounting solution: a wall bracket with integrated electrical connections for fast and easy installation, allowing brackets to be sited and fixed prior to the loudspeakers being on-site. The Impact 35T, Impact 55T and Impact 65T both feature internal muti-tapped line transformers for use with 70 volt line and 100 volt line distributed systems in larger commercial installations.
