Alto

Description

Since their first iteration, the Alto Professional TrueSonic 15", two-way powered loudspeakers have excelled at delivering pro-level audio that's seriously affordable while not compromising on quality. The latest-generation TrueSonic 415, or TS415, doubles down on that promise, with smart new DSP, more power, flexible app control and stunningly effective Bluetooth wireless stereo linking.

Power in Reserve

Packing 2,500W of peak Class-D power, the Alto Professional TS415 has plenty of power to spare, providing the headroom you need for the best quality. Class-D amps also help make the TS415 incredibly lightweight, at just 38 lb. Alto Professional's fanless cooling designs help keep the weight down, as well, while adding to durability. The custom 15" low-frequency and 1" exit ceramic high-frequency driver combine with that massive power to provide a peak output of 135dB, so the TS415 is at home in any small- to medium-size venue.

Flexible, Customizable DSP

Expanding from previous analog designs into the world of Digital Signal Processing (DSP), Alto Professional has built immense flexibility into the TS415. With three available factory DSP presets—Flat, Live and DJ—plus a fourth, User Custom preset where you can store settings from the internal 6-band parametric EQ, the TS415 excels in almost any environment, whether pole-mounted, flown or used as a monitor wedge. The internal DSP also enabled Alto to have greatly increased control over internal filtering and limiting, which allows the TS415 to bring more clarity and punch to its output, delivering greater SPL while retaining equally great sound.

Easy App Control

Along with the DSP, the Alto Professional TS415 debuts a new mobile control app for iOS and Android devices. From the connected app, each TS415 is individually connectable and addressable, so each speaker in your system can have different settings, all controlled from a single location, offering unparalleled ability to tune speakers to a room. Or, individual band members can have control of the monitor in front of them from their own phone. The choices are plentiful. The app can change the speaker settings, control the EQ, control the Bluetooth volume and more—virtually every user adjustable setting on the speaker is available from the app. 

Expanded Connectivity

When it comes to connections, Alto Professional provides all you expect, and then some. With two Mic/Line switchable, combination XLR/1/4" jack inputs and a Mix out, the TS415 can run as a standalone system for solo singer-songwriter gigs or speaking engagements, either singly, or in pairs. You can also switch the internal high-pass filter to match any size of connected subwoofer (from any manufacturer, not just theirs, as Alto pointed out to us), or set it to full-range when no sub is connected. The TS415's added Bluetooth capability goes beyond merely allowing you to play music from any Bluetooth device. A pair of TS415s can be stereo-linked via Bluetooth for a totally wireless stereo setup. There's even a convenient USB charge port to keep your smartphone or tablet topped off so the party can last all night. 

 

As has been their habit, Alto overdelivers with the TrueSonic 4 series. With massive power, immense flexibility and superb connectivity, these compact, lightweight powered loudspeakers make you and your band, or your venue, sound great while leaving some ducats in the bank for other gear.
