Turbosound Introduces the Aspect TA-500 Wide-dispersion Loudspeaker and TSB-118
Jul 5, 2006 1:18 PM
Turbosound has announced the introduction of the TA-500 wide-dispersion loudspeaker, a significant new addition to the award-winning Aspect series of modular point source sound reinforcement enclosures. The U.K. manufacturer has simultaneously introduced the TSB-118, a high-efficiency bandpass subwoofer designed for use with TA-500 Aspect enclosures, as well as larger QLight models.
The TA-500 is a three-way, full-range (60Hz to 18kHz) enclosure that incorporates patented Polyhorn designs to provide wider dispersion characteristics of 50 degrees Hx25 degrees V, making it ideally suited to regional and theatre tours and fixed installations. The speaker complement comprises a Turbo-loaded 15in. LF driver, a single 10in. mid driver on a MF Polyhorn and a single HF driver on an HF Polyhorn.
The similarity of the TA-500 driver complement with the longer-throw Aspect TA-880 products results in similar voicing characteristics that allow easy integration of these models in any venue. The TA-500 is initially available in a fixed install/ground stacked variant, with additional models being added to the range later in the year.
The introduction of the new TA-500 further highlights the flexibility of the Aspect product range, which also encompasses TA-890 touring and TA-880 fixed install variants plus high/mid and low/mid downfills, supported by double 15in. TA-890L and double 18in. TSW-218 bass cabinets.
The new TSB-118 single 18in. bandpass subwoofer employs a single 600W RMS 18in. driver in a bandpass designed enclosure and was developed both for installation and portable sound use. Tuned to provide a frequency response of 35Hz to 150Hz, the TSB-118 is a perfect compliment to Aspect and TCS Series enclosures as well as larger QLight models such as the TQ-315 and TQ-445. The cabinet comes with stacking feet and a pole holder as standard, with an optional wheelboard for portable use.
