Turbosound iNSPIRE iP1000 Powered Column Speaker System (Discontinued)
The Turbosound iNSPIRE iP1000 strays from traditional form-factor with its column design, featuring 8 x 2.75" neodymium drivers, along with 2 x 8" LF drivers and a 1" HF driver.
This design, together with its powerful 1000W amplifier allows for improved clarity and dispersion.
It comes equipped with Klark Teknik DSP with Spatial Sound technology that tweaks the sound subtly to match venues or your preferences.
In addition to all that, it comes with convenient Bluetooth connectivity, which allows you to stream audio from your computer and mobile devices.
Finally, since Turbosound is under the same parent company of Behringer, the iNSPIRE iP1000 is accessible priced considering its features.

Awesome and amazing are just two of the many positive adjectives that many use to describe their experience with the Turbosound iNSPIRE iP1000. One user even described it as a quantum leap compared to traditional portable PA systems in the same price range. Most are impressed with how loud and clear the sound can be, and more importantly, how balanced the projection is - to the point that some have stopped using monitors because it feels up the stage and venue really well. The convenience of modern wireless connectivity also garnered a lot of thumbs up.
There are a few users who had issues with Bluetooth connectivity, but the issue maybe due to third party devices and compatibility - not the PA system itself.
