Waveguides win Turbosound a Queen’s Award for Innovation

Paddy Baker 19 April 2012

West Sussex-based loudspeaker manufacturer Turbosound has won a 2012 Queen’s Award for Innovation for its Polyhorn and Dendritic waveguides.   Managing director Simon Blackwood said: “The design team has come up with two truly innovative concepts – the Polyhorn and Dendritic waveguides – deployed across three product ranges which contribute towards the ever-increasing quality of sound reproduction at live concerts and in permanent installations, and which are set to earn the company significant income both at home and in our 45-plus export markets.”   The two waveguides are both deployed in the company’s new Flashline sound system, which is already in use in Germany, Thailand, China and the US.   “Set against a challenging economic background and stiff competition from all quarters, this award really underlines the importance of UK design innovation in helping us to be a leader in the field of professional audio, and give us a genuinely competitive edge,” said Blackwood.   This is the third occasion in its 30-year history that the company has won a Queen’s Award: in 1987 and 1997 it won Export Achievement Awards in recognition of exceptional export growth.   Another company within the Installation Europe market space to win a Queen’s Award is Calibre UK.   www.turbosound.com
