TORUS

Constant Curvature Array Cabinets

THE DEFINITIVE CONSTANT CURVATURE

For applications that typically require a throw between 15-30m, a full-blown line array is not always practical, optimal or affordable. Conversely, a point source solution may not be sufficient in coverage and SPL.

TORUS is a constant curvature array, designed to fill that gap perfectly, combining optimised coverage, SPL profile and cost efficiency.

However, it is much more than just another constant curvature array. TORUS was in development for three years in an exhaustive bid to further the acoustic concept and performance achievable.
Typically, constant curvature arrays have adjustable horizontal dispersion but their performance can vary considerably in terms of tonality and effectiveness of coverage when different dispersions are selected.
Equally, many lack sufficient sensitivity in the mid-band frequency, critically important for voice projection and clarity.
They also can suffer from comb filtering.
TORUS fundamentally addresses these areas and more.

Edit

Each TORUS cabinet is designed for a flexible horizontal dispersion pattern and this can be manually adjusted between 90°, 60° or 75° (Asymmetrical) via the unique Dynamic Horn Flare™. This not only moves and locks the waveguide but also adjusts the horn mouth, including the low diffraction termination into the baffle, to ensure correct geometry and optimal performance in each of those settings.

The Dynamic Horn Flare™ is moved by a rotating mechanism accessible from the front grille so is easy and intuitive, while leaving the grille design to be both smart and fully protective of the drivers within.

Edit

A vertical pattern of either 15° or 30° is achieved via two separate cabinet types: T1215 and T1230, respectively. These cabinets can also be combined to fit venue and coverage requirements.

TORUS features a phase plug mounted in front of the 12” neodymium driver to increase mid-band sensitivity. Along with three 1.4” HF Polymer dome neodymium compression drivers, the sonic performance is not compromised even when driven at higher SPL.

Increased Vocal Projection and Clarity
Edit

TORUS is the first product to take advantage of DISPLAY 3 and can therefore be modelled in 3D and optimised accordingly, allowing different box resolutions as well as automatically optimising filtering to deliver consistent and defined coverage.

DISPLAY 3 – 3D Modelling and Optimisation
Edit

The plywood cabinets are finished in hardwearing Warnex paint with well positioned handles for easy installation and deployment.

The integrated rigging is suitable for install and touring applications and support horizontal array configurations of up to 180° with a flying frame that can support up to 6 cabinets in vertical orientation. The cabinets also feature a fixing for an external pole-mount accessory, increasing the flexibility to the max.

All this and finished off with a fully fitting grille, leaving no exposed parts, enabling a premium yet discreet look.

TORUS is available as standard in black or white.

Premium Cabinet Design with Flexible Deployment
Edit

Both models have two NL4 connectors with passive configuration using pins 1+ 1- or 2+ 2- selected via rear-mounted switch. TORUS systems are powered by Martin Audio iKON amplifiers, which support VU-NET control software and Dante® integration.

Amplification
Edit

TORUS can be supplemented by SX subwoofers and is specifically designed to fully integrate with the cardioid subwoofer, SXCF118, for flown and ground-stack configurations.

The SXCF118 is a compact, high performance cardioid subwoofer, combining maximum low frequency output with pattern control. It features an 18” (460mm) forward facing driver and a 14” (356mm) rear facing driver, each driven independently by separate amplifier channels and DSP. Each driver has its own chamber with optimised bass reflex porting. This arrangement produces a cardioid dispersion pattern which maximises the front radiation and reduces unwanted radiation behind the subwoofer.
