About Turbosound ATHENS TCS152/64-AN Arrayable 2 Way 15inch Loudspeaker
The 2-way full range TCS152/64-AN is a 2,500 Watt 15″ powered arrayable loudspeaker system that is ideally suited for a wide range of speech and music sound reinforcement applications. Designed to work individually without a controller or in arrays, the TCS152/64-AN provides optimal FOH performance, and offers the flexibility to accommodate venue-specific requirements and install applications. Turbosound ATHENS TCS152/64-AN arrayable 2 way 15inch loudspeaker features a carbon fibre loaded 15″ low frequency driver with an inside/outside wound low mass voice coil for improved power handling. The titanium dome 1.4″ neodymium motor compression driver is mounted on a rotatable 60° horizontal by 40° vertical proprietary Dendritic waveguide, which features multiple hornlets with identical path lengths to provide a flat constant-phase wavefront. When the waveguide is rotated 90° from the standard position a 40° horizontal by 60° vertical dispersion is achieved, making the TCS152/64-AN ideal for an even broader range of applications.
Output power for the Turbosound ATHENS TCS152/64-AN arrayable 2 way 15inch loudspeaker is provided by means of an efficient and lightweight KLARK TEKNIK 2,500-Watt Class-D power amplifier. A sophisticated, but easy to use KLARK TEKNIK Digital Signal Processor (DSP) provides dynamic EQ for impressive full range response at low volume levels and transparent limiting for clarity at high output levels – and for long-term reliability. On the rear panel of the amplifier module, the user interface’s LCD display and single rotary encoder provide intuitive access to: array, position, user EQ control, and signal routing features. In addition to the two combination balanced XLR/jack inputs, an XLR output is provided for daisy-chaining more active loudspeakers or for use with an active subwoofer. An onboard USB port provides access for remote control of the TCS152/64-AN via PC computer, as well as DSP firmware updates. ULTRANET connectivity is provided by two locking etherCON* connectors. Up to 16 independent channels of 24-bit digital audio and control data are transmitted via a single CAT5 cable between compatible digital devices – including mixers, I/O stage boxes, powered loudspeakers and personal monitoring systems.
Simplified cable routing and ease of setup translate directly into significant time saved during installation. Finished in a highly durable semi matt black paint, the trapezoidal cabinet is constructed from 15 mm (5⁄8″) birch plywood – and includes a rugged powder coated perforated steel mesh grille. Multiple rigging points allow bracket mount 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. Mains power input is provided via a Neutrik powerCON* connector.
