Speaker manufacturer Alto has just launched the TX2 and TS3 series of active loudspeakers. The TS3 line has four models with varying woofer sizes: 8″, 10″, 12″ and 15″. All TS3 models come 2000W peak amplifiers, 1″ tweeters and a two-channel mixer with combo TRS inputs onboard. The cheaper TX2 line comes with the same woofer sizes and tweeters, but only has one combo TRS input. The TX2 speakers also have less powerful amplifiers compared to the TX3 – the 8″ and 10″ models have 300W peaks, and the 12″ and 15″ 600W peaks.
Alto’s a cost-effective option for those who want to build a PA system on a budget – we thought the original TX speakers are decent. The new TS3 looks interesting because it comes with two inputs for more flexibility and, potentially, being able to leave your small PA mixer at home. If you’re a one-man mobile DJ service, gear that’s able to multitask makes setting up and striking down easier and quicker. Watch out for our review of them soon.
