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.
For short and medium-throw applications of typically 15-30m (50-100ft), a full-blown line array is not always practical, optimal or affordable. Conversely, a point-source solution may not be able to achieve sufficient coverage with the SPL required.
TORUS constant curvature arrays are designed to fill that gap perfectly.
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.
