  • Carvin Audio’s TRC SYSTEMS are our finest sound systems, offering high SPL levels that project up to 400’ with exceptional clarity. Unsurpassed high frequency and deep bass response will place the audience in the center of your performance.


Clear Powerful Audio

CARVIN Audio has developed the TRC™ System, a state-of-the-art, high-powered active column array system for live sound and installations. 9 3.5-inch transducers per column array, 18 per side, deliver pristine intelligibility designed for all genres and venues from small to large concerts.

The Multiple Source Dispersion MSD™ technology projects out 400’ while greatly reducing front hot spots and feedback. Its wide 120º coverage requires fewer loudspeakers for the same audience up to 1000 with dual subs per side (TRC600A System).

Expect impressive deep bass from 18-inch subs and silky-smooth highs that will impress your audience with high resolution transparency from Analog Devices™ DSP processing. CARVIN AUDIO's TRC™ Systems feature easy setups with the ultimate in portability. Hardwood construction with precision CNC machining speaks quality since 1946.

"We were all amazed with the tone, clarity, definition, coverage & volume produced from these compact enclosures. Everything about these cabs is stellar. The vocals & instruments are clean & detailed. Coverage & dispersion from front to back, left to right of the venue is even & clear - virtually eliminated hot spots & dead spots." - John H. Boston, MA
