Although we refer to it as a ?column” loudspeaker, the iNSPIRE iP500 delivers the powerful, high-quality sound and optimised dispersion inspired by our award-winning line array products – in a surprisingly lightweight and easy to use, all-in-one form factor.
Thanks to its built-in 2-channel digital mixer and 800-Watt output through a custom-engineered 8″ subwoofer and 6 x 2″ neodymium drivers, the iP500 is ideally-suited for small to medium-sized performance venues, houses of worship, boardroom presentations, nightclubs, and much more. The iP500 is lightweight and features industry-leading KLARK TEKNIK‘s revolutionary Spatial Sound Technology (SST), DSP presets and Class-D amplifier technologies, plus convenient Bluetooth audio streaming and iPhone/ iPad remote control.
Tiny PA – Tremendous Sound
Designed for maximum portability, iP500’s two columns fit neatly into the included shoulder bag, allowing you to carry the base unit with one hand – and keep the other hand free to open the door. Setup is fast and easy; just attach the column(s) to the base and connect your mic, or mixer feed, and power. The powerful iP500 instantly fills the room with the world-famous TURBOSOUND ?column” that has won the coveted Queen’s Award – an unprecedented three times.
KLARK TEKNIK Spatial Sound Technology
The groundbreaking iP500 utilises KLARK TEKNIK‘s revolutionary Spatial Sound Technology (SST) to create a wide and well-defined, virtual 3-D acoustic environment. SST takes advantage of the arrival-time differential between sound waves reaching the left and right ears, to envelope the listener in a rich and more realistic experience. In essence, the locations of the onstage voices and instruments are perceived in their rightful positions within the soundscape, for a performance that is beautifully open and transparent – with unparalleled intelligibility.
Outstanding Sound Dispersion
Much like the huge line array systems you’ve experienced at concerts and outdoor festivals (we make those too), the 2″ neodymium midrange / extended high-frequency drivers in the iP500 columns are strategically placed to provide up to a 180? horizontal dispersion pattern. Such wide coverage eliminates the need for monitor wedges for the performers, and creates a more even, sonically balanced soundscape that covers the entire room.

Class-D – Massive Power, Perfect Sound
Thanks to Class-D amplifier technology, the INSPIRE iP500 provides enormous power and incredible sonic performance in an easy-to-use, ultra-portable and lightweight package. Class-D amplification makes all the difference, offering the ultimate in energy efficiency and eliminating the need for heavy power supplies and massive heat sinks. This amazing technology makes it possible to design and build extremely powerful products that are significantly lighter in weight than their traditional counterparts, while using less energy and protecting the environment.
The Inspiring Brain
From the instant your signal enters the iP500, the built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) takes over, ensuring the highest possible signal integrity. Much more than just selective EQ enhancement, the 24-bit DSP analyzes the incoming signal and intelligently applies specific filters to actually improve the sound quality. It’s like having an audio engineer monitoring the input and output signals, dialing in the perfect EQ and constantly making subtle adjustments to the crossover, compressor/ limiter and more – all of which adds up to significantly better sound.
Our speakers are designed specifically for each application – it’s what sets us apart from the competition. When you buy a TURBOSOUND speaker system, you can rest assured that the speakers inside have been engineered to perform flawlessly in conjunction with every other element for truly professional results.
Built-in Digital Mixer – Total Remote Control
The iP500 features a fully addressable onboard digital mixer with two combo jack/XLR connectors that accept balanced and unbalanced connections for dynamic mics and line-level instruments. The simple and intuitive user interface consists of a single rotary push-encoder with Process, Setup, Exit and Enter function buttons. A beautifully-backlit LCD panel displays parameters for Delay (up to 300 ms), Limiter, High/Low shelving and parametric EQs, and Presets. All settings can be controlled locally, or via free downloadable iPhone/iPad apps – and locked down to prevent unauthorised access.
We take Bluetooth a step further, giving you total control of the iP500 directly from you iPhone or iPad. This amazing feature lets you adjust all settings from either the listening area or the stage, for the perfect sound every time. The dedicated apps are available free of charge at turbosound.com, or from the Apple App Store.
The days of tape decks, CD and even mp3 players are long gone. Now your music lives on your smartphone or computer tablet, so you can stop searching for those outdated cables and fancy adapters. An industry first, the iP500 puts all your music at your fingertips via stereo Bluetooth. Now with a simple wave of your hand, you can stream music from any Bluetooth-equipped iOS device, such as your iPad, iPod touch, iPhone – or even your laptop computer.
