Those very clever people at Turbosound have developed a revolutionary new loudspeaker bracket which means the new Impact series not only satisfies demand for great styling and sound quality, it greatly simplifies the sound system installer’s job.
The WB-5 adjustable wall bracket, supplied as standard with all three new Impact series installation loudspeakers, has integral electrical connections built into it.
This neat solution allows the brackets to be sited, installed and pre-wired by an electrical contractor, who need have no acoustics knowledge, prior to the loudspeakers being available on-site. The audio contractor simply has to push-fit the loudspeakers onto the brackets to complete the electrical circuit and angle the loudspeakers for best venue coverage. (more…)

California desert rockers Queens of the Stone Age went for a radical change of scene recently when they performed an exclusive one-off gig for 300 fans in a German salt mine.
Billed as the world‘s deepest gig ever, fans were transported 2,300 feet underground to hear Queens of the Stone Age perform through a Crest Audio Pro 200™-powered sound system supplied by audio rental and production specialists Complete Audio Berlin.
Complete Audio‘s Andrť Rauhut admitted that the Sondershausen salt mine definitely ranked at the top of his “most unusual venue” list, and was pretty close to earning “most challenging,” as well.
