QSC introduces K.2 Series loudspeakers

QSC has announced the launch of the K.2 Series of powered loudspeakers, consisting of the 8in K8.2, 10in K10.2 and 12in K12.2 full-range speaker models.

A follow-up to the K Family, the new range offers a number of significant feature upgrades, and establishes a new standard in powered loudspeaker technology, claims the company. QSC is also announcing the introduction of the KS212C, a single-box powered cardioid subwoofer.

Each loudspeaker model in the K.2 Series is equipped with a 2,000W power module carefully matched to high-performance woofers and compression drivers. DMT (Directivity-Matched Transition) ensures smooth coverage across the listening area and on-board DSP provides Intrinsic Correction voicing and advanced system management to further optimise performance.

K.2 Series models additionally provide operators with a library of pre-set contours for common applications such as stage monitor, dance music, musical instrument amplification, and hand-held microphone, while also offering storable scenes to recall user-configurable settings such as input type, delay, EQ, cross-over and selected contour via the loudspeakers’ LCD screen and control panel. All three models can be operated as either main PA or as a floor monitor. Each model can also be flown, wall-or truss-mounted, or placed on a speaker pole, either straight-firing or with 7.5° down-tilt utilising the new dual pole cup.

“The phenomenal success of the K Series is unprecedented in the pro audio industry and a testament to the values of great design, high performance, steadfast quality and long-term reliability,” said Ray van Straten, senior director of marketing, QSC Professional. “This next-generation product raises the bar yet again for the category and will most certainly further reinforce the reputation of the K Family brand for many years to come.”

The new KS212C cardioid subwoofer is said to represent a breakthrough in innovation and design, uniquely providing all the benefits of a cardioid subwoofer array in a single, compact enclosure. ‘Keeping bass in its place’ for mobile entertainers, AV production and rental professionals, as well as modestly-sized performance venues, the KS212C is able to manage low frequencies on the stage, or any application where undesirable low frequency energy needs to be minimised. Dual 12in long-excursion drivers, each arranged in a sixth order bandpass chamber, are powered by a 3,600W amplifier and controlled by the system’s DSP to produce 15dB more output at the front of the cabinet than at the rear.
