One of the first products launched by newly founded Alcons Audio is the TS Series of loudspeakers that can be used for fullrange speech and music reinforcement, as well as "fill" speaker or "under-balcony" system.

The Alcons TS Series currently consist of two models: the TS 3 and TS 7. The TS 3 features one 6.5-inch mid-bass driver with 1-inch soft-dome tweeter on optimised wave-guide. Peak power is 400 watts with an efficiency of 89 dB (1 W/1 m) and a frequency response of 66-20k Hz. The TS 7 features double 6.5-inch mid-bass driver with identical 1-inch soft-dome tweeter. Peak power is 800 watts with an efficiency of 92 dB (1 W/1 m) and a frequency response of 66-20k Hz. The speaker components are matched by an audiophile-grade crossover network.

By flush-mounting the speaker components and perforating the sides of the grille, obstruction and reflection are reduced, further smoothing the on-axis response. The TS3 and TS 7 have a very high grade of finish, with double-Speakon connectors, custom perforated-steel grille for acoustic transparency and a number of mounting nuts (M6 and M8) on the rear, upper and under side. Mounting accessories include: Trussmount with or without fly frame, standmount with or without frame, multiple wall- and ceiling mounts, OmniMount®, Multimount® (or equivalent), and many others.

Philip de Haan, senior R&D engineer, said, "With all of the high-tech speaker and amplifier developments we have, our smallest speaker range is actually the product that truly demonstrates our know-how and years of experience. We herefore invite people to do A/B comparisons with similar category products from other quality brands."

The first delivery of the new loudspeakers went to SPK Alliance, Alcons’ partner in South Korea, for an application in a SIAP sound system (System for Improved Acoustic Performance).
