Worldwide Acclaim

Such was TURBOSOUND’s international success that the TMS-3 was widely copied, hijacking a patented product design down to the last detail. In Canada, a successful legal case resulted in a local company’s TMS- 3 copies being publicly chain sawed.


The TSE series of loudspeakers was launched soon after. Basically a split TMS-4, the TSE-111 and TSE-118 combination became a popular rental company alternative to the TMS-4 due to the boxes’ easier portability and because the split format allowed the mid/high to be pole mounted and angled down with the “pitchfork” flying yoke.
