Latest full-range loudspeakers & band-pass subwoofers for install & touring.

By

29 June 2023

Turbosound’s TQ series of point source speakers are designed to offer faithful reproduction of the source material, allowing enjoyment from the front row to the back of the room. With six models to choose from, the range offers various loudspeaker and subwoofer options: TQ8, TQ10, TQ12, TQ15, TQ15B and TQ18B. These are suited to both installed and touring sound-reinforcement requirements.

FULL-RANGE LOUDSPEAKERS
TQ8
The 2-way full range TQ8 is a processed passive 1,100-Watt 8-inch loudspeaker system ideally suited for a wide range of speech and music sound reinforcement applications. Engineered to work in conjunction with Lab Gruppen powered loudspeaker management systems, the TQ8 provides optimal performance for FOH, sidefill and delay line loudspeakers. The TQ8 loudspeaker features an 8-inch neodymium low frequency driver with a low mass voice coil for improved transient response, and a titanium dome 1.4-inch neodymium high frequency compression driver mounted onto an 80° horizontal by 30° vertical rotatable exponential horn paired with a dendritic plane wave transformer (DPWT) waveguide. All drivers are matched with an internal passive crossover network in a reflex-loaded enclosure cabinet. The rear panel connector plate carries 2x Neutrik speakON NL4 connectors for input and link connections to additional enclosures.

TQ10
The 2-way full range TQ10 is a processed passive 1,600-Watt 10-inch loudspeaker system ideally suited for a wide range of speech and music sound reinforcement applications. Engineered to work in conjunction with Lab Gruppen powered loudspeaker management systems, the TQ10 provides optimal performance for FOH, sidefill and delay line applications. The TQ10 features an 10-inch neodymium low frequency driver with a low mass voice coil for improved transient response, and a titanium dome 1.4-inch neodymium high frequency compression driver mounted onto an 80° horizontal by 30° vertical rotatable exponential horn paired with a dendritic plane wave transformer (DPWT) waveguide. All drivers are matched with an internal passive crossover network in a reflex-loaded enclosure. The rear panel connector plate carries 2x Neutrik speakON NL4 connectors for input and link connections to additional enclosures.

TQ12
The 2-way full range TQ12 is a processed passive 2,000-Watt 12-inch loudspeaker system ideally suited for a wide range of speech and music sound reinforcement applications. Engineered to work in conjunction with Lab Gruppen powered loudspeaker management systems, the TQ12 provides optimal performance for FOH, sidefill and delay line loudspeakers. The TQ12 loudspeaker features an 12-inch neodymium low frequency driver with a low mass voice coil for improved transient response, and a titanium dome 1.4-inch neodymium high frequency compression driver mounted onto an 80° horizontal by 30° vertical rotatable exponential horn paired with a dendritic plane wave transformer (DPWT) waveguide. All drivers are matched with an internal passive crossover network in a reflex-loaded enclosure. The rear panel connector plate carries 2x Neutrik speakON NL4 connectors for input and link connections to additional enclosures.

TQ15
The 2-way full range TQ15 is a processed passive 2,200-Watt 15-inch loudspeaker system ideally suited for a wide range of speech and music sound reinforcement applications. Engineered to work in conjunction with Lab Gruppen powered loudspeaker management systems, the TQ15 provides optimal performance for FOH, sidefill and delay line loudspeakers. The TQ15 loudspeaker features an 15-inch neodymium low frequency driver with a low mass voice coil for improved transient response, and a titanium dome 1.4-inch neodymium high frequency compression driver mounted onto an 80° horizontal by 30° vertical rotatable exponential horn paired with a dendritic plane wave transformer (DPWT) waveguide. All drivers are matched with an internal passive crossover network in a reflex-loaded enclosure.  The rear panel connector plate carries 2x Neutrik speakON NL4 connectors for input and link connections to additional enclosures.

Enclosure Design
The full range loudspeaker models are all finished in a highly durable semi-matte black paint, the cabinet is constructed from 15mm plywood — and includes a rugged powder-coated, cloth-wrapped, perforated steel mesh grille. Multiple threaded rigging points are provided for suspension in any orientation, or for mounting. Optional flying yoke, swivel brackets are available separately. The TQ also features a dual 35mm socket for standard pole mounting — plus integrated handle for convenient transport.

Custom-Engineered Drivers, Waveguides & Horns
Turbosound’s full range loudspeaker models use in-house designed drivers, waveguides, and horns — with the dendritic waveguide uni-phase response having been part of the company’s premium design approach for the last two decades. The TQ Series has a refined curved exit dendritic married to a new 80° x 30° rotatable horn for accurate dispersion though the entire bandwidth of the high frequency device.

Lab Gruppen PLM+
With the ever-increasing complexity of modern-day sound systems, seamless integration with the Lab Gruppen PLM+ is a prerequisite for the full range loudspeaker models of the TQ series. Turbosound’s engineers have prepared and meticulously designed a series of presets that will allow the user to achieve the maximum system performance and consistency possible. Future FIR capable platforms from Lab Gruppen will be supported.

BAND-PASS SUBWOOFERS
TQ15B
The TQ15B is a compact and passive single 15-inch 8,000 Watt (peak) subwoofer that is ideally suited for a broad range of speech and music sound reinforcement applications in both fixed, portable and touring audio systems.

TQ18B
The TQ18B is a compact passive single 18-inch 4,000 Watt (peak) subwoofer that is ideally suited for a broad range of speech and music sound reinforcement applications in both fixed, portable and touring audio systems.

Lab Gruppen & Lake DSP
Both the TQ15B, and TQ18B are designed to work in conjunction with Lake DSP and Lab Gruppen amplification, providing optimal FOH performance, as well as considerable flexibility to readily adapt to varying venue requirements. Multiple bass array configurations and all pre-sets are available to download.

Custom-Engineered Drivers
Turbosound is recognised the world over for designing and building some of the most iconic loudspeakers and subwoofers. We take meticulous care and pride in maintaining that reputation by utilising only drivers designed by ourselves or to our exacting standards.

Enclosure Design
The low distortion design utilised in the TQ15B and TQ18B reinforces the low frequency spectrum in program or live music, steep cut-off slopes and Large singular DLP Technology (Diverging Lens Port) ensure an effective acoustic transition for use with TQ series elements.

The TQ range also has a line of accessories that includes, brackets, yoke brackets, and weather-resistant protective bags.
