System Requirements

TPX122M and TPX152 are passive 2-way loudspeakers, and TPX153 is a passive 3-way loudspeaker, all of which can be driven directly from a single amplifier channel with no controller. For optimum performance or for use with a subwoofer, they require 1 amplifier channel and 1 controller channel. The input signal is divided between the low-frequency and high-frequency drivers internally with a passive crossover.The TPX118B subwoofer has a full-range input and link through to connect an additional subwoofer. Operation requires 1 amplifier channel and 1 controller channel.

Correct controller settings for all model’s operation, with and without subwoofers, can be downloaded from turbosound.com, and are also available as presents for the LMS series controllers. To avoid wasting amplifier power, you should use heavy-duty speaker cable with a minimum wire size of 1.5 mm² (16 AWG), and preferably 2.5 mm² (14 AWG) for longer runs. For extreme cable lengths, be aware of cable impedance and resistive losses. Always observe the correct polarity.The TPX122M doubles effectively as a wedge monitor.

Amplifier Considerations

The TPX series loudspeakers are optimized for use with the Turbosound T series amplifiers with the LMS series controllers. A full range of DSP settings to suit any configuration are provided for download on the Turbosound website. The use of third party amplification and processing is only advised using the matrix of manual settings as well as the limiter calculator provided on the Turbosound website. The TPX series loudspeaker enclosures should be driven by high quality power amplifiers designed for true professional use. Power amplifiers should be capable of delivering long term broadband power equal to half the loudspeaker’s peak power rating at its stated nominal impedance. The use of underpowered amplifiers must be avoided as heavily clipped signals can cause permanent loudspeaker damage. Limiters, crossovers and equalisation points must be set in accordance with the settings provided on the Turbosound website. This will ensure the optimum sound quality and long-term reliability as well as protection from damage.Neutrik speakON* NL4 locking input connector(s) are provided, allowing options for input and link through.
