The Turbosound Milan M15s' integrated
Class-D amplifier is a true 2-channel unit with an integrated electronic
crossover, allowing the HF and LF drivers to be powered separately without
one being able to influence the sound of the other. Total output power
is 1,100 watts peak, providing plenty of headroom to maintain good dynamic
range so that transient signals are delivered effortlessly. The lightweight
switch-mode power supply coupled with industry leading Klark Teknik digital
signal processing, providing dynamic equalisation and sophisticated limiting
functions to ensure optimum performance and long term reliability.
The two discrete input channels are each equipped with balanced, combination
jack/XLR connectors and a level control, catering for a range of music
sources from low impedance microphones, acoustic guitars and keyboards
to mp3 players and mixing consoles, selectable via a mic/line slide switch.
Common to both channels are bass and treble controls with ±6 dB
of cut or boost to allow the loudspeaker to be equalised to the venue.
In addition, a low cut filter is provided at 100 Hz to shelve the low
frequency response when used on the floor as a wedge monitor, or to ensure
correct integration with subwoofers. A speech/music switch optimises the
loudspeaker’s frequency response either for predominantly vocal
material or for music programme. A Mix Out function sends the mix of both
input channels post-EQ to additional Milan loudspeakers on a balanced
male XLR for easy system expansion.
The Turbosound Milan M15s' trapezoidal enclosure is fabricated from high
density polypropylene, and is extensively ribbed externally and internally
to eliminate resonances and also to provide an attractive and durable
cabinet finish. The symmetrical 43° side angles allow the loudspeaker
to be conveniently used as a floor monitor. A recessed grab handle on
the top is designed for easy lifting and carrying, while the dual angle
pole mount socket allows the loudspeaker to be mounted on straight poles
or speaker stands either vertically, or raised higher and angled down
to optimise audience coverage. A total of six M10 rigging points are provided
on the top and bottom of the cabinet to enable vertical or horizontal
suspension in permanent installations using M10 shoulder eyebolts.
The Mains power is connected via a non-locking IEC with integrated fuseholder.
The illuminated front badge can operate in one of three possible modes:
permanently on; permanently off; or to indicate the action of limiting.
