The Early Days

The TURBOSOUND story unofficially begins in the days when men were men, and sound reinforcement was a truckload of AC30’s and a wall of bulky bins stretching as far as the eye could see. Tony Andrews was one of the first to seriously question the accepted thinking that live music could never sound the way a band and its record producer had heard it.

And with a little divine inspiration, egged on partly by the heady exploratory air of the Glastonbury Free Festivals (later to become major TURBOSOUND showcases) he set out to prove the theory wrong.

Sound reinforcement designers of the day had a seemingly impossible challenge: to produce excellent sound quality with maximum projection, in the smallest possible enclosure.
