This article walks through a number of frequently asked questions about the Alto TS212 loudspeaker.


Frequently Asked Questions



What are the dimensions and weight of the TS212?

The TS212 dimensions are 13.75" x 14" x 23.25" (L x W x H). It weighs approximately 28 lbs.


How loud can it get? How much power does it have?

The TS212 loudspeaker comes with a 12" woofer with a 2" voice coil and a 1" neodymium compression driver.  It can pump out audio at 1100 watts of peak power (700W LF + 400W HF) and 550 watts of continuous RMS power (350W LF + 200W HF).


Why doesn't the TS212 have a built-in fan? Won't it overheat?

All of the speakers in the Alto TS2 series are passively cooled, so no fan is required. This results in a quieter and more efficient speaker. You never have to worry about the TS212 overheating. 


Where do I set the volume control knobs on my TS212?

This depends on a number of factors, including what you have connected to the speaker and the various levels you have already set on your other equipment.  You can find a great guide about Gain Staging here.  This guide provides an overview of how to gain stage all of your equipment that connects to your Alto speakers to help ensure the clearest, loudest sound possible!


What is the XLR Mix Out for?

Use a standard XLR cable to connect the Mix Out to another loudspeaker.  The signal sent from this output is a summed Mono signal of the two inputs.


Can I bring the TS212 to a different country?

We do not recommend using a TS212 outside of the country where it was purchased unless an authorized service technician has approved it.  For the TS212 to safely be used, an internal jumper needs to be changed, and the fuse needs to be replaced.  This requires a service technician.  For more information on service centers who may be qualified to perform this procedure, please contact Alto Technical Support.


Are there bags available for my TS212?

Yes!  You can find covers for all of the TS200 series speakers at this link.
