Overview

The iQ15 is a powered two-way loudspeaker ideally suited for a wide range of portable and fixed installation, music and speech sound reinforcement applications. The driver complement includes a 15" low frequency driver with a low mass voice coil for improved transient response, and a high temperature 1" compression driver with copper-clad aluminum voice coil for extended high frequency reproduction.

Equipped with an efficient and lightweight two-channel KLARK TEKNIK Class-D power amplifier, the iQ15 provides an impressive 2500 Watts of peak output power. A high degree of control over the loudspeaker system’s performance is managed by a sophisticated, but easy to use KLARK TEKNIK Digital Signal Processor (DSP), which provides dynamic EQ for remarkable full range response at low volume levels, and transparent limiting for the utmost clarity at high output levels as well as for long-term reliability. The iQ15’s advanced DSP speaker modeling presets include accurate models of some of the audio industry’s most-respected loudspeakers.

KLARK TEKNIK also developed a highly versatile Spatial Contour Control (SCC) DSP function, which allows the user to optimize the iQ15’s frequency response for the physical speaker placement. This advanced functionality provides frequency compensation for stand, floor, wall or ceiling placement, much like the adjustments commonly found on studio reference monitors.

On the rear panel amplifier module, you will find a user interface consisting of an LCD display, Channel A and B gain controls, and a single rotary encoder for intuitive access to level, EQ, Speaker modeling, SCC, Subwoofer Integration and Feedback Control (FBI). In addition to the two combination balanced XLR/jack inputs, balanced XLR outputs for each of the two independent channels, and a Mix Out XLR connector, the iQ15 features a mic/line switch and level control with signal present LED on each channel.

The iQ15 also features Turbosound’s proprietary ULTRANET technology, which allows the use of CAT5 cables for transmitting pristine multi-channel audio signals and other information between ULTRANET-enabled products, such as digital mixers and personal monitor systems. This digital distribution networking not only eliminates the potential for RFI and crosstalk, but also reduces setup or installation time. An onboard USB port provides access for remote control of the iQ15 via PC computer, as well as DSP and speaker modeling firmware updates.

The lightweight fiberglass-reinforced composite enclosure is fitted with a rugged powder coated perforated steel mesh grille and multiple internal rigging points for permanent installations. The iQ15 is also fitted with a dual angle pole mount socket, allowing the enclosure to be pole mounted straight on, or raised and angled downward for optimal audience coverage. Mains power input and link output is provided via Neutrik powerCON* connectors.

    Comments about Turbosound iQ15 15 Inch Powered Loudspeaker:

    Picked this up as an upgrade from my Behr B215D. Side by side this unit sounds much warmer.
    I gave it a workout while we were rain delayed for a festival. With a lot of low boost it sounds really nice on its own and is respectably loud.

    Comments about Turbosound iQ15 15 Inch Powered Loudspeaker:

    These speakers are amazing when they work. I used them at 4 mobile DJ gigs and on the 4th gig one of the IQ15s made a loud popping sound, and quit working. RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A WEDDING RECEPTION. I'd only been playing for about 45 minutes during the cocktail/dinner hour and had them at LOW volume. They were indoors in a well air conditioned environment yet they somehow overheated and the amp blew.

    Worst part is I couldn't just take it to a local authorized repair shop to get fixed. These HAVE TO be shipped to Las Vegas. So I tried generating a service request online but the site DOES NOT WORK. There's no phone number listed so there's no way to get a hold of anyone at Turbosound. The only way I was able to get a response was through their Facebook page. Then and only then was I able to obtain an email address for customer support and a phone number.

    I called for days and left multiple voice messages which were NEVER returned. I was able to generate a service request via email. I had to pay $32 out of pocket to ship to Las Vegas for a WARRANTY ISSUE.

    After about a week I made numerous calls and emails just to check status but not one call or email was answered. I finally got a hold of someone and I'll get my repaired amp back after two weeks down time.

    If I were you, I'd stay FAR AWAY from Turbosound unless you live in Las Vegas and can drop it off at Turbosound yourself.

    I wasted a ton of money on two IQ15s and IQ18b subs I can't trust and can't get product support for. Stick with names like JBL, QSC, EV, or anyone who has authorized local repair shops.

      Comments about Turbosound iQ15 15 Inch Powered Loudspeaker:

      After reading the available reviews, and after comparing against dozens of models, I had decided to purchase a pair of the IQ15s; and honestly, I've been blown away! Used them for their first performance yesterday; and I couldn't be happier! They're sound is crisp and very responsive and provided ample sound for a medium size venue. I got lots of compliments! Turbosound has made me a believer!

        Comments about Turbosound iQ15 15 Inch Powered Loudspeaker:

        The TURBOSOUND "iQ" family of Powered Speakers are exceptional value and a great Sounding Speaker.... Our Sound Company has used the entire line (10", 12", 15" and Subs) and we have been very satisfied....The iq15 is very well built....Great on a Pole or as a Floor Monitor....Nothing shabby here; these are strong, tight cabinets (no rattle at all)....Very Loud and clear....Plenty of nice DSP settings including a Feedback elimination function....The 15" is very loud with great bass just using the default settings (you can adjust the built-in EQ and set-up your own tailored sound)....Using it with your X32 makes it even more attractive....The Turbosound line of covers are reasonably priced and are recommended for mobile use.
