Overview

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.

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.

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.

Great Sound.

By Jose Ibarra

from Central Point, OR

Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

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.

Cheap Price, Cheap Speakers.

By Adam Weindling

from Boulder, Colorado

Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

These sparkers are great!... and they you blow them. I DJ EDM at medium size bars at least once a week. I have already blown the three I have during three different shows. I have pro care coverage, but I would rather not have to deal with that. I would have much rather purchased the mackies I originally wanted, but the salesmen at Guitar Center insisted I buy these Altos (They must get some kind of special commission). Moral of the story, buy cheap speakers get cheap results, even if the salesmen tell you otherwise.

AGREE WITH ADAM

By Jake Armijo

from MOKENA IL

Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

These speakers kicked butt out of the box. I was in love with them. I DJ at school medium size bars and house parties (EDM and sell out music), and just as others have posted before i have also blown several of these. The tweeter remain fine its the low end that dies. I have been very cautious with them and kept my low end down and no redline or ceiling touched at all. The speaker still blew. I have pro coverage and everything and these speakers have give me nothing but a gigantic hassle for the three now i have gone through.

iPod Dock systems don't come close!

By Rachelle Moore

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

I am a Zumba instructor and was in need of better and louder sound for one of my biggest classes. After giving up on dock systems and picking my boyfriend's brain (who has 20 years expereince as an audio engineer) about PA/self-powered speakers, we decided to drop by a GC store and listen to a few models. At that point I was dead set on price! He said you get what you pay for and we went back and forth! He asked a sales rep what he thought was the best bang for the buck and the rep recommended the Alto series. He claimed to have worked with them on his side gigs as a sound tech. and stated the brand is actually made/owned by Akai. After listening to a side-by-side test against the Harbinger 15 inch, the choice was easy. The Altos sounded crystal clear! The bass was amazing, talk about a thump! This is the first pair of PA speakers I've owned and I've had them now for more than a month. I absolutely LOVE them! My students rave about the clarity and the loudness! They say they can really FEEL the music! That's my ultimate goal, for them to FEEL the music and let loose!

After Much Debate...

By steve derzanovich

from Johnson City, NY

Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

Purchased a pair of these to beef up the sound of my band. I had been running a powered mixer with two passive speakers. After this was no longer cutting it, I linked to of these to the pre-out of my mixer. Now, I don't hardly use the powered mixer for juice at all, just mainly the monitors. These things push! I did a lot of research and finally decided based on sound clarity and price point, and I have not been disappointed in the slightest. They are perfect for running a guitar straight in as well, crystal clear.

Great but

By Terry Howard

from Greer, S.C.

Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

I have been a DJ for over 6 years and went through many speakers but these are by far the best I have ever used. I am doing Karaoke and Dj at a medium sized bar and the sound is awesome. I have yet to turn these speakers up over half way on the speaker or my mixer. They are light weight (to me at least) and easy for me to move around. They have a good crisp sound with good controlled bass.I am already working on a back up system because my company is growing so fast and I contribute that to the good quality sound I have from these speakers. A great buy for the money.
