Sounds Great

Great bass and crisp treble using Bluetooth or wired.
Connected my phone ,tablet and Laptop easily.
Remembers all connected devices.
Would be ideal in large venue where extra speaker was needed away from the stage down the room.
Also could be used for PA for quiz night or public speaking.
Background music bluetoothed from your phone and your away.
Excellent value for the price going to order second one for complete setup.

In itself a great speaker, but with quirks

Ukiwa_san, 19.10.2017
I bought two of these full-range speakers together with a subwoofer TS218S from ALTO in June this year (2017), because I wanted a powerful system from a well-known manufacturer.

I rent music equipment, and this equipment was mainly intended for ceremonies up to 200 people.

First to the positive points:
The box is well made and therefore very valuable. Nothing really works cheap. Only the paint is definitely too sensitive.
The sound of the box is great. That is what my customers say, who have hitherto rented the plant.
And power has the facility too. Even at high volume no distortion (at least for my ear) can be detected.
As far as the 5 stars and an absolute buy recommendation.
I have not tested Bluetooth yet.

Where is light ...
There is also at least one very sensitive flaw (maybe other buyers can confirm that): The system was only three or four times in use, when one of the boxes, the tweeter failed. Of course, I immediately sent the box to Thomann.
Since the system was rented out again a few days later, I got by express another ALTO box.
A week was also in the second box of the tweeter.
Pure coincidence?

My research on the internet showed that the ALTO TS215W likes to have problems with the tweeter. Thomann could not confirm this to me on the phone.
However, I found some reports on the internet about very similar cases like mine. It is striking that is often mentioned explicitly that the boxes were not operated at the limit and the boxes were not very often in use.

I'm beginning to wonder if buying ALTO boxes was a wise decision. Since I rent the plant, I expect a certain reliability. Unfortunately, under this aspect, Thomann (as much as I appreciate this dealer) also takes a lot of time repairing the speakers. I'm sitting on coal and one customer after another has given a rejection.

If the above-mentioned problems of my boxes really prove to be pure coincidence, I will gladly correct my assessment positively.

Supplement from 25.10.2017:
Today I got the two repaired ALTO boxes repaired by Thomann.
First of all many thanks to the Thomann team that the repair was free for me.
As expected, the tweeter was defective in both boxes.
Presumably, the volume control was turned up too far and overloaded the tweeters!


You have to say the following:
The TS215W has two inputs, to which you can connect either a music source (eg laptop) or a microphone. Each input has exactly one volume control. For this purpose, such a volume control is divided into two parts. Up to the 12 o'clock position, a connected laptop is controlled, in addition, a connected microphone in the volume regulated. But if a laptop is connected and turning the volume control beyond the 12 o'clock position, there is a high probability of destroying the tweeter.
This is not a criticism of you. Dear Thomann team.
At this point, thank you again that you have the repair costs (culu tarily you must say) have taken.

In my view, an absolute design flaw and highly risky. And I'm certainly not alone with this opinion.
A comparison: I have a Ferrari whose engine explodes when I give full throttle.
Separate inputs for eg laptop and microphone with separate volume controls would have been the right way here.

That can not be true!
Sorry, that's an absolute no-go!
I rent these boxes eg for weddings.
Does the manufacturer believe anything serious, anyone adheres to the instruction to turn the volume control until 12 o'clock?
For me as a landlord that means that I can not give such boxes out of my hands, I do not want to hear from every tenant that a box has broken.
That would be negligent and preprogrammed image damage to the highest degree.

What does that mean for my rating?
In itself, the ALTO TS215W is a great box.
The latter restriction is very critical at least if you do not set up and operate the boxes yourself.
The prime example of a civic coup.
A good example of savings at the wrong end.
And there are deductions.
