Overview

The Truesonic TS2 product range is the result of a clean-sheet approach to designing professional speakers that strike an ideal balance between no-compromise acoustic performance, the complete array of features that users demand and outstanding ergonomics and utility—all coupled with a stunning new industrial design.

The range consists of three models, the TS210, TS212 and TS215. The amplifiers in all three are rated at 550 watts continuous, 1100 watts peak—a significant increase over the previous line. This higher power capability ensures greater output for use in larger spaces, with increased clarity, since the amplifiers won’t “run out of steam” and distort the way less powerful units will.

The all-new industrial design is more than just beautiful: The TS212 and TS215 have five integrated handles and the TS210 has two, making them easy to pick up in either H or V orientation. Each model also employs professional-grade M10 rigging/suspension points. The tough, durable cabinets have excellent acoustic properties, while their light weight makes them easy to transport.

Because of their cutting-edge, high-efficiency amplifiers, these speakers run at far lower temperatures than conventional amplifiers, even during extended periods of high output. The ground-up design effort for these speakers enabled us to incorporate advanced amplifiers with superior heat-dissipation characteristics, eliminating the need for costly, noisy cooling fans. The result is a powered speaker system that is cleaner, quieter and more reliable.

I am an active gigging musician, mainly solo acoustic, but I also branch out to Duo's and Trio's. I have been using Bose towers for the last several years, but have found that in packed loud rooms, the Bose gets very muddy and cant punch through. I bought 2 of these for mains and a 10" for my monitor. I have gigged with them about a dozen times already and absolutely love them. I've done single speaker small room set-ups as well as all 3 going for larger rooms and outdoor gigs. They are very clear and have good clean volume. I haven't had any problem with hissing, they are silent between songs and sets. These speakers are also pretty light for powered speakers, which is a nice plus. Overall I am very pleased so far,, the only thing I miss about my tower is the ease of set-up, but being that these are light,, it's not an issue. Very pleased with this product. I waited to do this review because I wanted to give a true review after 10-12 shows. Best speakers in this price range for sure!!

I had the previous models for 3 years with no problems so I figured I would upgrade to the TS212's. I really liked the sound quality at the store and was sold. I have had these for less than 3 months and used them three times and one of the highs/tweeters in out of one of the speakers already. Very frustrating!

          Comments about Alto Truesonic TS212 12" 2-Way Powered Speaker:

          I had purchased this speaker already by phone, and when I came to pick it up. I asked if I could just hear the one that was on display... I had the rep cycle through the Mackie thump 15, Ev 12, and the Alto 12. And before I could even say which one sounded better my girlfriend cut me off and said this one easily sounds better (Alto). And she was absolutely right, it had a warm crisp sound, just the right amount of punch and is very ascetically pleasing. For a second I thought the EV's were going to be the clear winner with its wooden cabinets. Totally blown away, I was more then happy to tell the rep I had already purchased the speaker and was actually there to pick it up. Will be getting a second one as soon as I sell my Mackie SRM 350v3 with no hesitation. I'm a mobile DJ with a very strange obsession for good quality audio equipment.... So trust me when I say you won't be sorry you pulled the trigger.

            I auditioned every PA speaker in its class (10", 12" and 15") at Guitar Center. QSC, JBL, EV, up to $1400/pair being my budget. All of them added coloration, boominess, or muddiness to the sound, which I confirmed by running white noise through a spectrum analyzer. Only the higher end QSC were tolerable. On the other hand, the TS212 were incredibly accurate (my reference speaker at home are B&W and JBL monitors), and this was again confirmed by a perfectly flat response down to about 40-50 Hz and rolling off at 17-18 kHz on the TS212. Basically blew away everything up to 3.5 times the price. Couldn't convince myself to spend a cent more for worse sound, bought two that day and have been enjoying this sound for the past 9 months!

                SEE JEFF - GC FRESNO CA - FOR EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE
                STOPPED BY GC ORIGINALLY TO REPLACE MY MACKIE TH15's THAT I HAD SOLD. THEY WERE THE GREY VERSIONS NOW THEY HAVE THE ALL BLACK VERSIONS AND THEY SUCK !!

                ANYWAYS - SEEN SOME USED TS212's AND ASKED TO DEMO THEM AND IMMEDIATELY I WAS JUST AMAZED ON HOW LOUD THESE BABIES WERE. CRISP CLEAR HIGHS AND THE BASS OUTPUT WAS AMAZING CONSIDERING THEY WERE 12's. IMMEDIATELY I WAS SOLD ON THE TS212's !! FOR THE MONEY AND PRICE RANGE THEY ARE THE "MUST HAVE" SPEAKER FOR BUDGET MINDED MUSICIANS. TRUST ME YOU WILL NOT BE LET DOWN.

                  Comments about Alto Truesonic TS212 12" 2-Way Powered Speaker:

                  I just bought a pair of these speakers and finally used them out in the park then inside a gym. Firstly let me say I took some time checking these speakers out at various Guitar Centers using my own music on my iPod. I was trying to decide whether to get the 12s or 15s. The output on both of these speakers are the same. Ignore the 1100 watts output as that is peak output. This speaker puts out 550 watts continuous. That's the real deal. Under first impressions I thought I was going to go with the 15s. After a few visits back to GC with a cleaner set of ears I decided to go with the 12s based upon a much cleaner midrange on them than the 15s. The 15s have the larger woofer which creates a somewhat muddier sound. Nothing wrong with that but since I was already using my Alto 18" TSSUB, I didn't need the lows of the 15s. Let me tell you these speakers put out some clean audio without even distorting or running hot for 4 hours of straight music. I was truly impressed, as were many other people in the park who heard the music from the other side of the facility. Try these speakers out. They are very lightweight. Sure you can spend over $1100 on QSCs but if your budget doesn't allow it then you can bank on these. In comparison it's either buying a BMW or a Toyota. You still will get from point A to point B. I am now waiting for the new line of subs to be released in August. Get to your local Guitar Center and try these out. I've heard that they have been flying out of the stores. Enjoy!!!
