QSC Introduces new AcousticPerformance line of loudspeakers10 December 2012
QSC Audio Products has announced the launch of the AcousticPerformance line of professional, two-way, full-range loudspeakers. The company says the new range is ideal for a variety of installed sound reinforcement applications, which require higher SPL and a stylish enclosure.
The range comprises the AP-5122, AP-5102 and AP-5152, all of which feature a 3in voice coil, high power-capacity compression driver combined with high-output woofers to deliver full bandwidth reproduction. They also feature M10 mounting points for deployment via eye-bolts as well as mount points for an optional yoke bracket.
The AcousticPerformance speakers can be used in passive (full-range) mode to minimise amplifier channel count or bi-amp mode for greater control and performance. Moreover, performance can be enhanced for Q-Sys and future QSC products with bi-amp and full-range tunings using QSC Intrinsic Correction techniques.
In addition, the AP-5122 multi-purpose enclosure features a 40º angle, making it ideal for floor monitor use, and a pole cup for deployment on a loudspeaker stand. The enclosure and terminal input cup on the AP-5122 have been designed to facilitate the cable runs for a clean appearance on stage.
“In keeping with QSC’s loudspeaker design philosophy, all AcousticPerformance loudspeakers feature Directivity Matched Transition (DMT) which matches the compression driver to the natural coverage angle of the woofer in the cross-over region”, stateed Phil Sanchez, QSC loudspeaker product manager. “When combined with their axisymmetric waveguides, AcousticPerformance loudspeakers deliver a flat power response with smooth and accurate sonic reproduction and remarkably consistent coverage both on and off-axis.”
AP-5102/5122/5152 models are available in black (RAL 9011) and white (RAL 9010) finishes, while AP-5122m is available in black only. To minimise impact and disposal fees at the job site, all AcousticPerformance loudspeakers are packaged in environmentally friendly, recyclable cartons.
