Having purchased the Turbosound Flex Array (TFA-600H) system a year ago, the company has experienced a growing presence in the south Florida market. Flex Array combines elements of line array theory with proven virtual point source technology in a single product range for exceptional flexibility in application. According to Lennox Foster, Sound Media’s President and founder. “We bought 16 of the 75-degree boxes last year, and it took our business to another level. The TFA-600 is one of the best sounding boxes I’ve heard in a long time. Now we’re expanding again, so it was natural to stay with the sound signature that has helped us get so many new and repeat customers. Now we have enough Flex Line Array for stadium shows of 15,000 or more.”

Foster points to the Aspect 500 as an excellent example of Turbosound flexibility. “It’s an outstanding full-range box for point and shoot applications,” he says. “It’s actually bigger than the Flex Array, a 3-way with a 15-inch woofer. We can use two of them per side at an outdoor show for 2,000 people, no problem. It’s also a perfect sidefill to use with the Flex Array at bigger shows.”

Similarly, the smaller NuQ-8DP finds utility in a range of applications. “We do a lot of smaller corporate shows, where sound quality is important, but the client does not want to see large black boxes,” says Lennox Foster. “The NuQ is perfect for that, because it has high fidelity, is very compact, and still has plenty of output. Then, at our bigger events we can use it as a frontfill and as monitor wedges on stage for speeches. It’s a very diverse box.”

An electrical engineer by education, Lennox Foster has firm opinions on the design features that make Turbosound speakers so good. “There are a lot of very good speakers on the market today, but what’s unique about Turbosound is the vocal presence,” he explains. “The crossovers on the larger systems are designed so that the vocals are primarily all coming out of one speaker, which keeps it very cohesive and very intelligible. There is no smearing of the vocals with Turbosound systems, and that is very important to us, and to our customers.”
