An industry first, the Turbosound iQ Series features “Acoustic Integration”, which enables digital mixers, personal monitor systems and loudspeakers to communicate directly with each other digitally via the Company’s proprietary Ultranet Technology. Another first for the iQ Series is the sophisticated speaker modeling capability, which lets users dial up preset frequency contours that emulate the sound of 10 of the world’s most iconic loudspeakers.
Turbosound has launched the all-new iQ Series networked loudspeaker line at the 2014 NAMM Show
. iQ Series loudspeaker systems combine Turbosound’s loudspeaker legacy with Klark Teknik’s networking and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technologies.
Suitable for FOH and floor-wedge applications, the iQ15, iQ12, iQ10 and iQ8 two-way loudspeakers are lightweight, portable and feature Turbosound drivers for high-quality sound. Added support for low-frequency performance comes from the iQ18B and iQ15B subwoofers, which provide exceptionally-deep and powerful bass. All enclosures feature standard 35 mm pole-mount sockets, for deploying dynamic full-range systems ideal for even the most demanding sound-reinforcement applications.
All iQ Series models connect seamlessly with Midas M32 and Behringer X32 digital mixers, and are equipped with 3,000-Watt Klark Teknik Class-D amplifiers and DSP. Users can easily set up and adjust built-in DSP parameters directly at the speakers, or remotely via PC or tablet running the free of charge, downloadable app.
“Our design objective was advanced integration between our growing digital mixer family and this new, high-performance loudspeaker line,” said Al Walker, Product Manager. “The iQ Series is an industry first, thanks to the available digital audio networking via our proven Ultranet technology.”
The Turbosound iQ Series is designed to be affordable enough for small to medium-size venues, such as theaters, schools and houses of worship – yet powerful enough to take on festival stages, dance clubs and corporate convention center shows.
