Turbosound Introduces NuQ Loudspeaker Systems
Turbosound is introducing the NuQ systems of fully integrated, networkable sound reinforcement packages designed for portable professional audio applications. They are offered either as digitally self-powered units or as discrete loudspeakers used in conjunction with optimized Turbosound controllers and power amplifiers. TurboDrive™ software gives reliable real-time, intuitive control of Turbosound controllers and powered loudspeakers individually or over a network.
NuQ systems make exclusive use of advanced neodymium magnets, low distortion rotatable high-frequency waveguides and pre-bent plywood construction to provide the highest possible performance, flexibility, handling and reliability. Early production units have already been extensively road-tested and proven by Britannia Row Productions with David Gilmour and the Fratellis.
NuQ systems are offered in different sizes and output capability according to application, providing consistently high audio quality with similar voicing between models. The ultra-compact eight-inch passive two-way NuQ-8 delivers 124dB max SPL, while the slightly larger ten-inch passive two-way NuQ-10 clocks in at an impressive 127dB max SPL. The larger twelve-inch two-way NuQ-12 and fifteen-inch two-way NuQ-15 are both switchable active/passive cabinets delivering 133dB and 135dB respectively.
All two-way enclosures feature wide dispersion rotatable Converging Elliptical Waveguides™ for smooth and even room coverage, as well as symmetrically-shaped quasi-trapezoidal cabinets that allow them to easily double as monitor wedges. Two complementary low-frequency cabinets provide sub-bass support: a compact fifteen-inch front-loaded bass enclosure and a powerful eighteen-inch bandpass subwoofer. Both are equipped with flush handles, corner protectors and pole mount sockets for all portable corporate and audio-visual applications.
Digitally self-powered variants of all models are also available, offering exactly the same consistently superb performance from fully integrated, optimally matched Class D amplifier modules with 96kHz sample rates, operating at better than 90% efficiency.
