Overview

Part of Alto's TRUESONIC series, the TS112A is an 800W Class D powered loudspeaker with a 12" 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 TS112A 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 TS112A 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 TS112A offers a 12" 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, pole mount 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 TS112A 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 coffee house, wedding, house of worship or other small to medium-sized venue, the TRUESONIC TS112A 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 need an EQ alternative 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.

Seriously, these are the best powered speakers out there for the money. Crystal clear sound, plenty of bass and power, two inputs, contour control, and did I mention plenty of power? They also look great! I have a pair of them that we use in our youth ministry. We use them as stage monitors, but they also double as our portable system. I used them all over the place this summer, and they didn't skip a beat! If you're trying to decide between these and a Mackie Thump or Behringer speaker...just get these! I've tried them all right next to these, and there is no contest!

I bought a new speaker a while back and recently bought the same one I'm reviewing, which is used. Unfortunately after the 2nd use I started to hear static from it and it being used means you take a gamble and don't have the same warranty/return policy.

Comments about Alto TS112A 12" Active 2-Way Speaker:

I bought a set of these a year ago, and have been using them on a regular basis for everything from backyard barbecues to small/medium sized wedding venues. They have a surprisingly powerful, yet clear sound. I've had compliments on these critters at every performance, and I'd love to upgrade to the 15" model when funds allow. I added an Alto TSSUB15 to go with these speakers, and it is more than enough to provide clients with amazing sound either indoors or outdoors.

I'd also like to mention that while doing a pre-event check up on them, my 3 year old cranked up my main volume control and clipped one of the speakers. I turned it off, turned it back on, and it worked like a charm! Very durable! Having said that, I do not like to turn up the volume control knob on the back of the speakers past halfway. I get the red signal limit LED if I go past that, but with a mixer it shouldn't be an issue.

All in all it's a great deal for your money!

    Comments about Alto TS112A 12" Active 2-Way Speaker:

    I bought it because one of my other speakers a Elx112p took a dump, and had to send out for repair. I was shocked that the sound was so good, not as good as the EV, But close, so I will buy another just to have a pair.

      I bought two of these and the sound quality were amazing. I was shocked on how loud they were because some of the reviews out there will have you 2nd guessing this product. If you want a pair of speakers that are reasonable price and sound clear and crisp these will do the job.

        Comments about Alto TS112A 12" Active 2-Way Speaker:

        Owned one for a year. I'm lead singer in a rock band. Used it for monitor in rehearsal many times. DJ'd a couple of parties. Rocked it at several tailgates with ipod. Wow! This thing is great. Very loud and substantial bass, not deep subwoofer bass, but def good enough for most applications. I'm gonna buy another one soon. And FYI, I've been running live sound for 5-6 pc bands since the 80's. This speaker is worth the $. It's also rugged. And I've run it off car inverter 400watt, straight off cig outlet in the car. That's pretty good. The cooling fan starts off slow and you might think it's not working, but it has a variable speed and kicks in when needed. I've pushed it HARD and never clipped. Not once, even after tailgating 3+ hrs, listening to high volume rock from the ipod.

        I own and have owned a lot of pro audio gear. The clear, clean, & crisp highs are AMAZING from these. Just picked up a pair and am wearing them out trying to break 'em in nice. Major upgrade from the Harbinger V2115's and Yamaha V115's I have used in recent past. Better than my Mackie Thump 12's. Heck, better than any top mains I have ever used. Gotta pair these boys up with subs, as they dont punch the throaty deep end. But, as HF mains, they are money. Very happy with them. Best speakers I have ever owned. Hands down.

        I had a sound guy bail on me at the last possible minute for a convention and had to buy something that could handle a 20,000 sq ft convention hall and a bunch of live bands. Just one pair of these did more than I could have hoped for in a million years. Get a pair as soon as you can! There is no question that these outperform a lot of more expensive brands on the market.

        So far so good...

        By Andrew

        from Queens, NY

        Comments about Alto TS112A 12" Active 2-Way Speaker:

        I only used them twice on my own private gigs. Overkill for those, that's why I got 12's instead of 15's. I will re-post if my band uses them or an outdoor band shell show where we need 4 speakers. We have 4 EV's (ELX 15" powered) and a tweeter blew in one of'em. May not be fixed on time so we might use these 12" Altos of mine. I actually hope we get to use them because small gigs like restaurants don't let the throttle out on them. But they perform well and sound great on the 2 occasions I've used them. Price was a driving factor for me.
