      Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker (H80848)
Availability:  


Class D powered speaker with total transparency for clean, clear performance every time.

Part of Alto's TRUESONIC series, the TS115A is an 800W Class D powered loudspeaker with a 15" low-frequency transducer and 1" neodymium driver. It provides you with two mic/line combo inputs with independent volume controls and an XLR output for linking to other speakers. Their lightweight, trapezoidal cabinet makes it easy for you to use it as a traditional upright loudspeaker or as floor wedge monitor, and it's stand or pole-mountable as well as flyable. Other features include a Clip Limiter with red LED, Ground Lift switch, and a contour switch for increased EQ control.

Versatile Cabinet Design
All TRUESONIC 2-way speaker cabinets have been designed with versatility and longevity in mind. They feature a durable, lightweight polypropylene enclosure that is stand-mountable for weekend gigs and flyable for more permanent installations. What's more, they have a trapezoidal design which greatly decreases the resonance of the standing wave in the cabinet for a more true-and-exact sound reproduction. The TRUESONIC TS115A is ideal for musicians and DJs on the move and halls, malls, schools, houses of worship and more.

Total Transparency
The TRUESONIC Series was designed from the ground up to be the most transparent loudspeaker money can buy. Rigorous testing and thousands of hours of listening have gone into making sure that what you pump into a TRUESONIC speaker is exactly what you get out. Everything you see (and some things you don’t) – from internal signal path and components used to the sculpted cabinet and meticulously designed waveguide – was developed in service of the principle of accurate, transparent sound.

Super Efficient Drivers
The drivers in the TRUESONIC TS115A are designed to make sure that virtually no energy is wasted. That translates to more of the power from the amplifier actually working to generate sound rather than heat, giving the speaker better real-world performance than other speakers with comparable published specifications. The TRUESONIC TS115A offers a 15" LF driver (2" voice coil) and a 1" HF neodymium driver.

Modern amplifier design
Every active TRUESONIC speaker benefits from the use of a Class D amplifier integrated into the cabinet. Class D amps are generally lighter than Class A and AB amplifier designs, and offer more than enough power to provide your performance with plenty of punch. The TRUESONIC TS112A delivers with 800 watts of power and offers a balanced combo jack (XLR/TRS) input with level control. Class D amplifiers are also highly efficient and run cooler than other kinds of amps so the amp doesn't have to work as hard to deliver your mix.

Hang 'em High
Optimal speaker placement can be challenging, especially if your speakers don't have what it takes to go anywhere. Whether you need to fly your speakers, polemount or use them as floor monitors, TRUESONIC speakers are ready for you. All TRUESONIC speakers feature standard 36mm pole mounting insets on the bottom. If you need to fly them, it's no problem. The TS115A comes with five rigging points. All these options make the TRUESONIC one remarkably venue-friendly speaker. You can use them anywhere you need them.

Just what you need
Whether you're performing at a coffeehouse, wedding, house of worship or other small- to medium-sized venue, the TRUESONIC TS115A is your best choice. For example, it's easy to get your TRUESONIC speakers to the gig thanks to their carrying handles and lightweight design. Once you're there you won't need to be a live sound engineer to figure out how to EQ the speakers thanks to the built-in Contour EQ switch that can help adjust for those situations where an EQ alternative is needed for recorded music playback. When you're connecting everything, the TRUESONIC's dual XLR/combo inputs make easy work of your setup and each speaker's independent level controls give you the flexibility to dial everything in your way in seconds.

Full metal grille
You can never be too safe around the stage. We know stuff happens that you just can't predict. Sometimes it's the flying drumstick, a falling mic stand or worse. Every TRUESONIC speaker comes with a complete front grille from top to bottom that protects not only your low-frequency driver, but your high-frequency driver as well. With TRUESONIC speakers, you get extra peace of mind knowing that whatever comes at your sound system, it's covered, literally.

  • Great Sound.

    As reviewed by Jose Ibarra on 4/28/2012

    I've been a mobile DJ for 9 years, and I was looking to simplify my setup without sacrificing sound quality. I had always used JBL speakers and Crown Amps. However, the setup took up too much room and weighed a lot. So I decided to go with a Numark NS6 and recently 2 Alto TS115s along with an Alto TSSUB15. They are a lot lighter than my previous speakers, but the sound is impressive. I've received many compliments regarding the sound quality as well as the look of these speakers. I'm also looking to add 2 10s to use during cocktail hour at weddings where a second setup is required. These speakers are amazing.

  • Best Deal for the Price

    As reviewed by Derek Koloditch on 4/18/2012

    After spending some time researching speakers, I decided to drop by a GC store and listen to a few models. At that point I was torn between the Mackie Thumps and some higher rated Behringers for slightly less. I asked a sales rep what he thought was the best bang for the buck and he recommended the Alto series. He claimed to own a pair himself and stated the brand is actually made/owned by Akai. After listening to a side-by-side test against the Mackie Thumps, the choice was easy. The Altos sounded clear and present, while the Mackies sounded surprisingly dull and cheap (unsurprising, given Mackie's problems of late). That said, be aware that this is the first pair of PA speakers I've owned and I've had them for only a few weeks so far. However, when I've used them, they sound great. I'm pleased with the clarity, bass, and loudness.

  • Limit Way to Fast!

    As reviewed by jacob stogner on 6/6/2012

    I bought these speakers after listening and being very impressed in the store. I started with the Behringer 15 inch powered speakers. Theres really no comparison when it comes down to clarity of sound and the amount of bass that these put out compared to the behringers. With that said, These are not nearly as loud before they begin limiting. I am an EDM DJ and play mostly Trance, Progressive House, and Dubstep. I have already blow 2 of these speakers and I'm not just some kid blasting this music and limiting them at shows. If your going to be playing small house parties/small venues these are great for the price, but if you ever play mid to large shows don't waste your money. You might as well buy the Behringers. I recently blew out my second alto and finally broke down and bought the qsc k12. If you can save up and get these bad boys, there is no comparison in the store as far as powered speakers that deliver plenty of sound, as well as clear highs and miss and a lot of bass. Plus these have a built in limiter so its a lot harder to blow them. I am very happy with these and would suggest them all day.
