Professional British audio manufacturer Turbosound announce its iQ Series networked loudspeaker product line is now shipping and will soon be available from all major resellers.
The iQ Series combines Turbosound’s 40-year loudspeaker legacy with Klark Teknik’s networking and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technologies to create what is referred to as “Acoustic Integration”. This enables digital mixers, personal monitor systems and loudspeakers to communicate directly with each other via the Company’s proprietary ULTRANET Technology. Another first for the iQ Series is the speaker modelling capability, which lets users call up preset frequency contours that emulate the sound of 10 of the world’s most recognized loudspeakers.
Acoustic Integration puts more control at the user’s fingertips, allowing them to make changes to overall sound system performance – in real time, without ever leaving the mixing desk. Users can set up and adjust built-in DSP parameters directly at the loudspeakers, or remotely via PC.
The iQ15, iQ12, iQ10 and iQ8 two-way loudspeakers are lightweight and portable. Added support for low-frequency performance comes from the iQ18B and iQ15B subwoofers. All enclosures feature standard 35 mm pole-mount sockets.
“Our design objective was advanced integration between our growing digital mixer family and this new, high-performance loudspeaker line,” said Andrew Pardoe, lead acoustic engineer for Turbosound. “The iQ Series is an industry first, thanks to the available digital audio networking via our proven ULTRANET technology.”
The iQ Series is affordable enough for small to medium-size venues, such as theaters, schools and houses of worship – yet powerful enough to easily accommodate festival stages, dance clubs and convention center corporate events.
The full range iQ8, iQ10, iQ12, iQ15, and Q15B and iQ18B subwoofers are available at an estimated U.S. street price starting at $549.99 – and are covered by a Three-Year Warranty Program.
