Turbosound delivers the Low-Down

Turbosound's TSW-218.

1 September 2005

UK - Turbosound, the British-based manufacturer of live performance and installed-sound loudspeakers, has introduced a new addition to its range of low-frequency options. Already field-proven at numerous summer festivals and events across Europe, the large-format TSW-218 is a 2 x 18" Turbo-loaded sub-bass enclosure, capable of delivering very high SPLs, say the company.

It has been specifically designed to complement Turbosound's Aspect series, as well as the larger models in the QLight range, and its first projects have included high-energy, low-frequency duties at this year's Glastonbury Festival, Denmark's Roskilde and Skanderborg Festivals, plus London's Big Gay Out.

Configured to provide dynamic and accurate low-frequency performance at very high levels, the Turbosound TSW-218 sub-bass system is a double 18" modular coupling-horn enclosure, which benefits from a dramatic sensitivity increase when multiple units are coupled. Incorporating TurboBass high-velocity partial horn-loading principles, the TSW-218 outputs 104dB sensitivity from a single unit, with eight cabinets coupled delivering up to 110dB. Designed for high power applications in the sub-100Hz region, the new enclosure is particularly suited to concert touring and festival environments. Its performance characteristics have been specifically developed to complement Turbosound's Aspect series enclosures, particularly when additional sub-bass energy is required for large-scale arenas, stadia and nightclubs, with the TSW-218 also complementing the larger QLight loudspeakers, such as the TQ-445 or TQ-315.

The unique 18" transducers employed in the new sub-bass cabinet incorporate a 5" diameter voice coil - among the largest in the industry - and high temperature, neodymium magnet structures. The TSW-218 also includes additional handling features derived from Turbosound's wide experience at the sharp end of festival and concert touring: cabinets are equipped with Heavy-duty nylon feet and matching locating recesses, as well as strap points integrated into the side handles. These ensure that ground-stacked arrays are structurally secure.
