The 2 way full range TCS152/96 is a switchable passive/bi-amp 15″ 2,400 Watt arrayable loudspeaker system that is ideally suited for a wide range of speech and music sound reinforcement applications. The TCS152/96 is designed to work in conjunction with TURBOSOUND loudspeaker management systems, providing optimal FOH performance, as well as offering considerable flexibility to readily adapt to varying venue requirements.
The TCS152/96 arrayable loudspeaker features a carbon fibre loaded 15″ low frequency driver with inside/outside wound coil with low mass voice coil for improved transient response, and a titanium dome 1.4″ neodymium motor compression driver mounted on a rotatable 90° horizontal by 60° vertical Dendritic waveguide. All drivers are matched with an internal passive crossover network in a reflex-loaded enclosure, and bi-amp mode can be enabled by means of a rear panel switch. The rear panel connector plate carries Neutrik speakON* NL4 and barrier strip connectors for input and link connections to additional enclosures.
TURBOSOUND’s proprietary HF Dendritic waveguide features multiple hornlets with identical path lengths, which are engineered to provide a flat constant-phase wavefront with a 90° horizontal by 60° vertical dispersion pattern. When the waveguide is rotated 90° from the standard position, a 60° horizontal by 90° vertical dispersion is achieved, making the TCS152/96 ideal for an even broader range of applications.
Finished in a highly durable semi matt black paint, the cabinet is constructed from 15 mm (5⁄8″) birch plywood – and includes a rugged powder coated perforated steel mesh grille backed with reticulated foam. Internal M10 threaded rigging points are provided for suspension in any orientation, or mounting with dedicated brackets – available separately. A dedicated range of fly plates and coupler kits are also available separately for constructing tightly packed custom full-range and subwoofer enclosure arrays for aesthetically pleasing and venue specific coverage requirements.
