Turbosound iQ8
8" 2-Way 2500W Peak Powered Loudspeaker with DSP and Digital Networking

OUR PART #  IQ8


The Tubosound iQ8 is a 2,500 Watt (peak) powered two way full range loudspeaker with digital networking designed for a wide range of portable PA and fixed installation applications. It consists of a 8" low frequency driver utilising a low mass voice coil for improved transient response, and a titanium dome 1" high frequency compression driver with a pure aluminium voice coil for extended high frequency reproduction.

As with all Turbosound powered loudspeakers, the iQ8 features a very efficient and lightweight two channel Klark Teknik Class-D power amplifier which provides 2,500 Watts of peak power. A high degree of control over the loudspeaker system's performance is provided by the highly sophisticated Klark Teknik Digital Signal Processing which offers dynamic EQ for impressive full range response at low volume levels, and transparent limiting to ensure the utmost clarity at high output levels, and the assurance of long term reliability. Highly advanced DSP speaker modeling includes accurate models of industry standard speakers.

The loudspeaker's rear panel amplifier module carries a fully featured user interface consisting of an LCD display and rotary encoder providing intuitive access to level, EQ, and pre-set frequency contours that optimise response for pole or stand mounted front of house, or floor monitor use. In addition to the balanced combination TRS/XLR inputs, balanced XLR outputs for each of the two independent channels, and a Mix Out XLR connector, the iQ8 features a mic/line switch and level control with signal present LED on each channel. It is equipped with proprietary ULTRANET technology, using CAT5 cables to transmit pristine quality multi-channel audio signals and other information between ULTRANET enabled products such as digital mixers and personal monitor systems. The USB port provides remote access to the onboard DSP via Windows or Mac Computer.

Mains power is connected via a locking Neutrik powerCON connector with additional auxilliary mains output to power further iQ series loudspeakers. The iQ8 is fitted with a dual angle pole mount socket, allowing it to be pole mounted straight on or raised higher and angled downwards to optimise audience coverage. 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.
