Full-service sound and lighting company Sound Media (Hollywood, Fla.) has selected the Turbosound Flex Array as its flagship loudspeaker system. “My degree is in Electrical Engineering, so I am very analytical in choosing my equipment,” says Sound Media founder/president Lennox Foster (pictured). “When we auditioned speakers for this purchase, the vocal clarity of the Flex Array really caught our attention. It provides great intelligibility and really highlights the subtleties of music at any volume.”



Corporate and worship events comprise the majority of Sound Media’s business, along with a steady stream of music concerts. With venues ranging from hotel ballrooms and churches to golf courses and airplane hangars, flexibility and ease of use were critical factors in choosing a new array. “Physically, the TFA-600H is unique,” says Foster. “This loudspeaker provides a great deal of SPL with moderate amplification, and I like the fact that it can be used as either a two-way or three-way box. On corporate events where space is often an issue, we can have a smaller amplifier footprint by using the two-way configuration.



“The loudspeaker has a small visual footprint, which works well for our corporate clients and ballroom events,” he continues. “At 90 pounds, hanging four boxes from a 500-pound-capacity rigging point becomes much less difficult. I also like the ability to rotate the horn to configure the loudspeaker in a horizontal array, which takes less than five minutes. The Turbosound Flex has been a great investment for us.”



Sound Media currently owns 16 TFA-600H array loudspeakers, complemented by Turbosound TA-500 loudspeakers, which are deployed as fill speakers for wider dispersion in the near-field. The company’s custom subwoofers were designed and built by Foster. “I have been designing loudspeakers since high school,” Foster says.
