Turbosound's Aspect Series is a highly innovative sound reinforcement system, one of the company's most innovative designs to date. The system is easily scaleable to suit specific acoustic and venue requirements ranging from small clubs and auditoriums, to the largest arenas and stadiums.

The Aspect Series consists of four modules: two models for touring-a mid/high and bass enclosures, fitted with integral rigging hardware; and two trapezoidal models-a mid/high with matching bass cabinet, designed for ground stacking and fixed installations. The design of the Aspect series features a set of proprietary transducers, which operate over four individual frequency bands and are divided between the system's modular mid-high and low-frequency enclosures. The new series incorporates many patented concepts, with the key element being the system's Polyhorn(tm) designs. These are applied at both high and high-mid frequencies, and comprise equal-path-length multisection waveguides that create a phase-coherent wavefront. This unique design permits individual wavefronts to coincide seamlessly with the physical curvature of an array, to minimize comb filtering effects between adjacent cabinets and, due to the design's tightly focused point-and-shoot directivity, the system is intuitively adaptable to a huge range of room size and audience coverage requirements.

All Aspect Series' transducers have been designed in-house. In addition, high-stability neodymium magnet structures are used throughout, offering greater efficiency, better thermal stability, lower power compression and a reduction in overall weight. Enclosure dimensions are exactly divisible into both U.S. and European truck sizes, while the integral flying hardware enables the boxes-with their rotatable mid-high section-to rig horizontally or vertically, and allows cabinets to be pre-assembled on wheel dollies for easier load-ins. The flying hardware can also be easily removed to permit independent safety testing.

Four Aspect models are being launched. Aimed primarily at the install market, and also for ground-stacked touring applications, are the TA-880H trapezoidal mid-high system and the corresponding TA-880L low-frequency enclosure. These models use removable rigging swords that form a simple, lightweight and easy-to-use flying system. For both large and small scale touring applications, the TA-890H mid-high unit, and the identically-sized TA-890L low-frequency enclosure, are designed to be flown in point source arrays.

Turbosound's Aspect series sets a new benchmark for audio quality in sound reinforcement. Its combination of high efficiency and improved power handling can generate sound pressure levels in excess of 146dB peak.
