West Sussex, U.K. (December 23, 2004)–Turbosound has unveiled a new range of digitally powered systems in its QLight Series. The three new models–the TQ-445DP 3-way design in a trapezoidal cabinet, the TQ-310DP 2-way system in a trapezoidal enclosure, and the TQ-308DP trapezoidal 2-way design–all employ new-generation Class-D power amplifiers, which incorporate DSP technology using a 96 kHz sample rate.
The new models boast a 110 dB dynamic range, and are capable of operating at more than 90 percent overall efficiency. The loudspeakers’ 96 kHz DSP technology incorporates active crossovers and output limiters, to ensure the new systems are optimized and completely self-contained, needing only a signal feed from a console and no additional outboard processing. The system’s amplifier/DSP module is equipped with an RS232 port for software updates, while this port also provides a contact-closure loudspeaker-mute facility. This enables the loudspeakers to be deployed in installations that need to meet the requirements for voice-evacuation systems.
