Alto

Class D powered speaker with total transparency for clean, clear performance every time.

Part of Alto's TRUESONIC series, the TS115A is an 800W Class D powered loudspeaker with a 15" low-frequency transducer and 1" neodymium driver. It provides you with two mic/line combo inputs with independent volume controls and an XLR output for linking to other speakers. Their lightweight, trapezoidal cabinet makes it easy for you to use it as a traditional upright loudspeaker or as floor wedge monitor, and it's stand or pole-mountable as well as flyable. Other features include a Clip Limiter with red LED, Ground Lift switch, and a contour switch for increased EQ control.

Versatile Cabinet Design
All TRUESONIC 2-way speaker cabinets have been designed with versatility and longevity in mind. They feature a durable, lightweight polypropylene enclosure that is stand-mountable for weekend gigs and flyable for more permanent installations. What's more, they have a trapezoidal design which greatly decreases the resonance of the standing wave in the cabinet for a more true-and-exact sound reproduction. The TRUESONIC TS115A is ideal for musicians and DJs on the move and halls, malls, schools, houses of worship and more.

Total Transparency
The TRUESONIC Series was designed from the ground up to be the most transparent loudspeaker money can buy. Rigorous testing and thousands of hours of listening have gone into making sure that what you pump into a TRUESONIC speaker is exactly what you get out. Everything you see (and some things you don’t) – from internal signal path and components used to the sculpted cabinet and meticulously designed waveguide – was developed in service of the principle of accurate, transparent sound.

Super Efficient Drivers
The drivers in the TRUESONIC TS115A are designed to make sure that virtually no energy is wasted. That translates to more of the power from the amplifier actually working to generate sound rather than heat, giving the speaker better real-world performance than other speakers with comparable published specifications. The TRUESONIC TS115A offers a 15" LF driver (2" voice coil) and a 1" HF neodymium driver.

Modern amplifier design
Every active TRUESONIC speaker benefits from the use of a Class D amplifier integrated into the cabinet. Class D amps are generally lighter than Class A and AB amplifier designs, and offer more than enough power to provide your performance with plenty of punch. The TRUESONIC TS112A delivers with 800 watts of power and offers a balanced combo jack (XLR/TRS) input with level control. Class D amplifiers are also highly efficient and run cooler than other kinds of amps so the amp doesn't have to work as hard to deliver your mix.

Hang 'em High
Optimal speaker placement can be challenging, especially if your speakers don't have what it takes to go anywhere. Whether you need to fly your speakers, polemount or use them as floor monitors, TRUESONIC speakers are ready for you. All TRUESONIC speakers feature standard 36mm pole mounting insets on the bottom. If you need to fly them, it's no problem. The TS115A comes with five rigging points. All these options make the TRUESONIC one remarkably venue-friendly speaker. You can use them anywhere you need them.

Just what you need
Whether you're performing at a coffeehouse, wedding, house of worship or other small- to medium-sized venue, the TRUESONIC TS115A is your best choice. For example, it's easy to get your TRUESONIC speakers to the gig thanks to their carrying handles and lightweight design. Once you're there you won't need to be a live sound engineer to figure out how to EQ the speakers thanks to the built-in Contour EQ switch that can help adjust for those situations where an EQ alternative is needed for recorded music playback. When you're connecting everything, the TRUESONIC's dual XLR/combo inputs make easy work of your setup and each speaker's independent level controls give you the flexibility to dial everything in your way in seconds.

Full metal grille
You can never be too safe around the stage. We know stuff happens that you just can't predict. Sometimes it's the flying drumstick, a falling mic stand or worse. Every TRUESONIC speaker comes with a complete front grille from top to bottom that protects not only your low-frequency driver, but your high-frequency driver as well. With TRUESONIC speakers, you get extra peace of mind knowing that whatever comes at your sound system, it's covered, literally.

    I've had several othre musicians ask me where I got these because they want a pair, they even sound great playing tunes off my phone during breaks. These are great speakers, lightweight, inexpensive, these guys nailed it.
    I love these speakers, they sound great! I was borrowing my freinds QSC's for a few shows and then I got these Alto 15's, man, I'm blown away! I like the QSC's but these actually sound better live, they're just as loud but I'm not getting any more complaints from people up front.We do this restuarant gig and the QSC's sound ok in the back of the room, but when you get up toward the front, they tend to blow your head off, they're way too directional. These Alto's are just as powerful but give me a much more even sound throughout the whole room, and cost like half as much. I saved enough to be able to get four of their powered wedge monitors to. The Alto's sound great!
    They seem to be built tough for the road.
    I can't believe how good these sound compared to everything else I've heard and used. Everything comes out crystal clear.

    I used a pair of this speakers only at 4 gigs. I tried to used them at my next gig and the low end driver was out. If you look at Alto forums and other PA forums you'll find that this is a common issue with the TS115A.

    The speakers were never pushed at the gigs as they were merely used as monitors. The price is very attractive but like most things in the pro audio world you get what you pay for.

    In terms of sound quality, I wasn't impress. Sound is average, sometimes a bit sharp. Some people report great low end. I never experienced it. Maybe my pair was just a defective one to start with. You can get a lot more end from an 8' QSC than a 15' Alto.

      Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

      These are great speakers. They are solidly built and not heavy at all. It has 2 side handles and a top handle so you can easily pick it up in many ways. It has 2 xlr/trs combo inputs and 1 xlr output. It also has a switch called ''contour'' which pretty much raises the high and low frequencies for some quick eq setting however I would not recommend it for loud volumes. The sound output is clear in my opinion. I have used other brand speakers and I find the the high frequencies are a little on the harsh side or the low side is too boomy but these altos sound sweet, not too high not too low. I have only used in them in a few events so i cannot comment on its durability but so far they have stood up. The speaker looks great on the aesthetic side so you cannot go qrong with using these in super formal events. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase. O I almost forgot to mention that you should not go past 12 o'clock on the input knob unless you are only using a microphone directly into the speaker otherwise you might clip the amplifier. I just adjust the levels on my mixer and leave the knob on the speaker at 12 o'clock. I think that is why some people have had issues with them.

      Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

      Well packed in a plain brown box. 800 watts should not be boasted on these! That's a peak! 335 watts is what is listed for the woofer and 65 for the tweeter nominal. These are restocks as they already had issues. Well after using them for one gig. I noticed the top end just drops off. As if a filter was kicked in. I sent them back and bought the EV ZLX-115P

      Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

      I wish I would of found these speakers a long time ago. I have gone through several different powered speakers over my career (23+years) and haven't been happier with any of them. These are half the price of my Mackies SRM 15's and have relegated the Mackies to backups since showing up. the price is great, the sound is clean and loud ..... I honestly couldn't be happier with these speakers . Bottom line if you need a powered speaker this size look no further, period

        I own five of these (4 for FOH, one for my drummer's monitor) and I love them. Great value for the price and I have received tons of compliments on the sound quality. Everyone asks me where I got them or how did I find out about this line. Impressive, easy to set up, lightweight and powerful.
        I use 4 - TSSUB18's with them and it is an awesome sound.

          Comments about Alto TS115A 15" Active 2-Way Speaker:

          I've been using the Alto TS-115A with Amplitube 3, and I couldn't be happier with it. I had quit using my guitar modeling software because the great sound I got in my headphones never came across through my desktop monitors. But with this powered PA speaker, I really feel like I'm playing through an amp.

          Most of the demos online focus on extremely distorted metal sounds, which the Alto can easily handle. But I'm here to testify that it works great with clean sounds too. I dialed up a clean Fender Twin sound in Amplitube, and I can't believe how warm and amp-like it sounds through the Alto. If the nü metal demos have turned you jazzbos off of the Alto, give it another look.

            This speaker is the best powered speaker out there. Hands down. This thing can be compared sound quality wise to qsc or jbl any day. It sounds amazing. The bass is great. It is very clear! And for the price why not? And let me say something about durability. I had this thing sitting on top of my mixer case in my trailer with no protection whatsoever and when I get to my gig it was flipped upside down on the floor grill down it fell off of the case and bounced around. I plugged it in and it sounds fantastic!!!!!! You couldn't ask for a better powered speaker like this. Hands down. I am convinced that it is all in the name. This sounds just as good as a qsc or jbl. i am an alto fan for life. Great job on this one.

I ordered another for a great price and I hope it's just as nice. I'm planning on using these for vocals in a smaller band I'm putting together soon.

                    I've had two Alto Pro 115's and they do sound great--nice highs and solid lows. Here's the thing to watch: Look closely at the input level controls on the back of the speaker! Since it's a hybrid quarter inch or XLR jack, the input CHANGES from Line level to Mic Level at 50% on the dial. If you're running line level in, DO NOT push these beyond the midway setting since the speaker at that point is looking for a much lower mic level input!!!! I've had trouble with one where I may have pushed line level through into the mic level portion of the input. As a solid powered speaker, it has great sound, but don't cross into Mic Level input unless you're using a microphone into the hybrid input!!! Since I use line input 99% of the time, I run mine half to two-thirds up on the line input section, then adjust input from my mixer accordingly and only push to the 50% mark when needed for larger outdoor or very large hall events! Best balance for the money, but you have to understand the design of the inputs!!! If you have a chance to buy a replacement plan, that's not a bad idea on these speakers!
