TSA Loudspeakers produce bespoke loudspeakers. Our cabinets are high quality, craftsman made with your desired finish. Choose from over one hundred natural woodgrain or melamine finishes.
Our specialisation is the full range, high sensitivity, single driver configuration style. Sometimes referred to as point source, the singular advantage of full range loudspeakers is their holistic sound stage presentation. Customers are always commenting how they feel they are in the front row when listening to our loudspeakers.
High sensitivity loudspeakers feature an SPL above 95dB (1w @ 1m; note that when comparing SPL numbers, every 3 dB is a doubling of sound pressure so 96dB is eight times as loud as 87dB for a given input) and whilst they can be used with any amplifier type they are particularly well suited to use with tube amplifiers. Tube amps are analogue devices. They are fast and noted for their warmth; used with high sensitivity drivers the effect is extraordinary - vinyl record enthusiasts take note!
For years now, TSA has employed the well-respected Audio Nirvana drivers in our single driver loudspeakers, which are available in sizes designed to cater to a broad spectrum of listening environments. Ask for a catalogue today.
Full range drivers handle the full audio spectrum so therefore no crossover filters; in other words there is less circuitry in between the amplifier and the speaker. The full range driver produces a single point-source of sound. In combination with tube amplification the resulting stereo imagining is uncanny. The music simply floats in the air, the performers seemingly there in the room with you.
We also offer a very well performed bookshelf size speaker, a two way design of lower SPL as well as a superb sub-woofer designed by Ed Schilling of The Horn Shoppe for those seeking high end performance in bass reproduction.
TSA Seamless Sub
Here is a low cost, hi-fi performance standard, low bass enhancement speaker (aka sub-woofer). Powered by a 125W plate amp and featuring a 24dB/octave pass filter, the upward firing driver unit features a lightweight paper cone which is housed in a sealed, 300mm, 10 kg diameter cylindrical cabinet. This unit is fast meaning bass performance is tight; no mushy or booming bottom end. A marvellous adjunct to any high end system requiring better low bass performance.
Andrew H’s comment: I tested the TSA Seamless sub at home and was impressed by the solid addition to the overall sound of my system (a TSA built tube amp). I am not a big bass fan, but I found the addition to the sound of my records significant. I would recommend anyone looking for great bass from their sound system to test this out.
TSA Monitor 1
An impressive bookshelf-sized loudspeaker, the TSA Monitor 1 is a very well performed two way loudspeaker of medium sensitivity (91 dB).
Kerry’s comments: Just a quick note to let you know that I am very impressed with the monitor speakers, the clarity and sharpness of sound is incredible: crystal clear sound with good depth to the bass out of a pretty small package
Full Range Loudspeakers
Smaller listening environments are perfectly catered for by the Wollemi, which, unlike its namesake, stands less than a metre high and with a footprint of less than one square foot. The little brother of the mighty Shock &Awe, this compact package delivers amazing clarity and sound stage in a smaller format. The Wollemi is available with either ferrite or AlNiCo driver achieving an SPL of 98dB and 95dB respectively.
Brian’s comment: The speakers arrived on Friday, and I am delighted with them! They are beautiful in appearance (I am very pleased with my choice of “Wenge”) and they sound fantastic. I tried them out with a broad range of styles of music, as well as recordings from different eras. They all sounded superb: full of detail and clarity across the full range of sounds and instruments.
The Megalong is a utility loudspeaker demonstrating a smaller footprint whilst offering the 10 inch driver in a medium sized cabinet, an excellent loudspeaker configuration with a higher output in this size presentation. The Megalong is available with either ferrite or AlNiCo driver achieving an SPL of 99dB and 97dB respectively.
Darryl’s comments: My wife, the real test. I could have easily bought loudspeakers that met her needs while spending less money and taking far less time. One of my wife's favourite albums is Diana Krall "Live in Paris". We went to a Diana Krall concert at the Sydney Opera House and my wife said "that sounds exactly the same as the new stereo". Good enough for me
The Jamison is configured with a 12” full range driver. Jamisons are the choice of those seeking the depth and realism of the large displacement loudspeaker where space is at a premium. The Jamison is available with either ferrite or AlNiCo driver achieving an SPL of 99dB and 96dB respectively.
George’s comments: I have this friend who continues to throw extraordinary amounts of money at various loudspeaker types and configurations searching for something he likes. He listens to my TSA Jamisons and shakes his head: “but they don’t cost enough to sound that good”. My turn to shake my head
Presenting a larger footprint than Jamison and smaller than Shock & Awe, a pair of Penultimates is an attractive option between the extended presence of Shock & Awe and the more compact Jamison. They are a superb loudspeaker fully delivering the promise of the 15 inch full range driver. The Penultimate driver is a single full range AlNiCo driver achieving 96dB SPL.
Frank’s comment: The speakers have arrived safe and sound.....thank you for the careful packaging. I have unboxed and installed them and they appear extremely well made....thank you again!!!
I have listened for about an hour and their virtues in the area of transparency, detail and just plain musicality are immediately apparent..........I love them straight out of the box and I suspect they will turn out to be the best speaker I have ever owned
TSA Shock & Awe
At 370 litres displacement, Shock & Awe are the big daddies of the TSA Loudspeaker range and beautifully complement the capabilities of the 15 inch driver, faithfully projecting all the way to the lowest register for the most lifelike experience. The awesome capacity of this loudspeaker allows configuration with a passive driver for truly extraordinary presence. The Shock & Awe driver is a single full range AlNiCo driver achieving 96dB SPL.
Peter’s comments: This is truly UNBELIEVABLE UNBELIEVABLE UNBELIEVABLE ,!!!!! Words cannot describe !! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Listening to Diana Krall right now and my wife is starting to smile and we can easily hear each other! It is all and more than what I expected. Soft dynamic everything you hear, the detail ... My father would love it!! Thanks again!
