The TA-880 system uses Turbosound's patented Polyhorn (tm) design to deliver seamless arrayability, as well as very high SPL from small and manageable cabinets, fast and simple rigging, low weight and convenient truck pack. The partner TA-880L bass enclosure is designed to provide low-frequency support from an extremely compact and manageable cabinet.

The TA-880H features Turbosound's patented Polyhorn technology delivering significant and audible benefits. These are a phase-coherent wavefront at the horn mouth designed to match the array curvature, plus a sharp cut-off at the pattern edges allowing adjacent cabinets to integrate seamlessly in an array. All drive units are custom designed in-house to further optimize the drive unit/waveguide performance.

The TA-880 system is recommended for regional concert touring and corporate applications for which a system of six mid-highs and eight lows is capable of providing high-quality sound reinforcement for up to 3,000 people, provided coverage requirements are met. The systems are equally ideal for fixed installations such as nightclubs, sports facilities, theaters, exhibition centers and concert halls.

A typical ground stack of three trapezoidal TA-880H top cabinets array placed on top of a block of four TA-880L bass cabinets, reaches an optimal height from the ground providing true 75° of horizontal dispersion. Similarly a three-wide flown cluster of TA-880H boxes is ideal for theater-type venues, with bass cabinets ground stacked underneath. The TA-880HM high/mid downfill can be used to good effect giving coverage of both floor and balcony areas from a single cluster.

The rigging system is external to the box, which not only offers a cost effective option to those users not wishing to fly cabinets, but also allows the hardware to be easily safety tested. It consists of removable swords, which pass through the box, secured and linked with lynch pins, forming modular clusters to suit the coverage required. Fixed angle flybars are available for two-wide and three-wide configurations.

Trapezoidal Aspect cabinets can be fitted with optional wheelboards which attach securely to the front of the cabinet to aid in moving and handling. The wheelboard is designed so that when detached from the cabinet multiples can be conveniently stacked with minimal footprint. TA-880L bass cabinets are pre-drilled for optional heavy-duty T-4 wheels.
