Trew Audio’s customers have always expressed interest in battery-powered speakers. While several choices have been available, all seemed to have lacked the ideal balance of build quality, compact size, battery life, and adequate power. For most on-set applications requiring a portable playback system, Galaxy Audio may have the best balance yet.
The “Any Spot Traveler” is Galaxy’s new AC/battery-operated portable powered-speaker. This compact system features an 8″ woofer, 1″ horn, 50-watt amplifier, and can be configured in a variety of ways (with or without wireless receiver, for example) to meet your specific needs.
The Traveler’s standard features are: 2 Inputs (XLR/1/4″ combo with its own volume control and a dual RCA), 2 Band EQ, and a Master Volume. Audio Outputs include a dual RCA Line Out and a 1/4″ Speaker Output to power an additional speaker.
The Traveler will operate for an unlimited time on AC power, and for about 6 continuous hours on battery power alone. Our customers using them in the field report that the Traveler can go a full production day of typical use without recharging. A full battery-recharge takes about 4 hours, and The Traveler may be operated while recharging without affecting charge time. If a power failure occurs when operating on AC, the Traveler seamlessly switches to battery power. And thanks to the Universal Power Supply/Battery Charger, the Traveler is still user-friendly anywhere in the world.
True to its name, the Traveler has now proven itself capable of enduring the rigors of shipping and moving where other brands have failed.
The Traveler is ready the instant you need it. Other brands have a “feature” that turns off the amplifier when no signal is present, resulting in a 2 second delay when playback begins. This, of course, cannot be tolerated in film/video playback situations. So it is good to know that the Galaxy Traveler is always ready for the very first click of a “count-off” or “Action!” cue.
The Traveler is versatile with a “plug in” modular design, allowing Function Modules to be easily added and removed. Optional Modules include Wireless Mic Receivers (with Handheld, Headset, & Lapel options), a CD/MP3 player, and an Audio Link Module, which wirelessly transmits audio from one Traveler to any number of satellite Travelers. Since all the Modules are internally wired, no external patching is necessary.
The durable ABS enclosure features a sturdy carry handle and a provision for standard pole mounting. The Traveler is the perfect tool for those who need a portable, lightweight, all-in-one PA system that allows for a quick and uncomplicated setup.
