If you’re looking for a great value set of powered PA speakers, then the new Alto Professional TS4 series could be for you! Combining Bluetooth connectivity and app control, this new series promises a lot of bang for your buck!
Alto Professional TS4
Alto has always been one of those brands you’d look to when value is a high priority. In recent years though, we’ve seen some clever solutions from them such as the Bluetooth Total 2. Now Alto is throwing a bunch of clever solutions into their latest powered speaker range, the Alto TS4.
Available in a range of sizes and power outputs, the new TS4 range offers premium-level connectivity at a very affordable price. Look around the back of any model in the TS4 range, and you’ll find an integrated 3-channel mixer. Two XLR jack combo inputs give you connectivity for microphones, instruments or line-level signals.
Bluetooth and App Connectivity
I was surprised to learn that the TS4 range offers some very welcome Bluetooth and app-enabled features; the kind of features you don’t usually see on speakers at this price point. Pair your Bluetooth device using the controls on the back of the speaker and you’re good to go.
I particularly like the ability to connect a pair of TS4 speakers, in stereo, wirelessly, using the True Wireless Stereo function. I’m sure we’ve all been in situations where it’s difficult (or impossible) to run an XLR cable to a speaker!
The Alto app (available for Android and iOS) gives you remote access to speaker settings. Built-in DSP (which is also accessible via the Alto app) offers a range of preset “Speaker Use” modes; you can of course, also adjust EQ manually to suit.
Sized to suit
All models in the TS4 lineup use efficient Class D power amplifiers and the same connectivity throughout the range. Your choice then is down to power output and speaker size:
- TS408 – 8″ woofer 2000 Watts (€379.99)
- TS410 – 10″ woofer 2000 Watts (€449.99)
- TS412 – 12″ woofer 2500 Watts (€499.99)
- TS415 – 15″ woofer 2500 Watts (€549.99)
Overall I think the Alto Professional TS4 series seems to offer good value. The closest speaker range with these specs and features is probably the Mackie Thump series; however, you’ll pay a lot more money compared to the Alto equivalent!
