What is a Tornavoz??

Post by Dustin McKinney » Sat Mar 18, 2017 7:02 pm

Hello!

At the risk of sounding incompetent, what is a tornavoz? What is it's function, advantages, disadvantages? Is it common practice- why or why not?

Thanks in advance for satisfying my curiosity!

Thanks much! From my own speculation, I assume that it is subjective. Several posts claim more projection while others claim a loss in volume. I'd never heard of them before running into a post about a Thames with a Tornavoz. Again, thanks for the direction!
