QSC is now shipping two new loudspeakers – the AD-P.HALO, an integrated SUB/SAT pendant loudspeaker system, and the AC-C2T-LP, a low-profile ceiling-mount full range loudspeaker.
As part of the AcousticDesign Series, AD-P.HALO features an integrated 6.5” subwoofer and four 2.75” transducers in a single pendant-mount enclosure. The purpose-built design is ready to install right out of the box, eliminating time-consuming assembly while speeding up the installation process and reducing labour costs.
The AD-P.HALO is suitable for applications where music inspires the overall atmosphere, such as high-end retail or hospitality. At 200 Watts RMS, the AD-P.HALO is designed to offer significant dynamic headroom that surpasses the background music performance of traditional two-way pendant-mount loudspeakers. It also shares sonic characteristics with the rest of the AcousticDesign Series, allowing integrators to mix-and-match enclosures types, including ceiling-mount, pendant-mount and surface-mount form factors, within in the same installation.

The AcousticCoverage Series AC-C2T-LP is a low-profile, ceiling-mounted 2.75″ full-range loudspeaker, designed for installations with tighter space requirements or where lower ceiling heights are more common. Featuring a 95 mm installation depth, it is suited to environments where voice-reinforced coverage is a primary concern, including conference rooms and background music (BGM) applications.
The diameter of the AC-C2T-LP matches the AC-C6T, a 6.5″ 2-way system loudspeaker, which allows installers to interchange them when they encounter unexpected ceiling obstructions without affecting the look of the whole installation. It also offers a 170° conical coverage, reducing the number of loudspeakers required for consistent coverage in low-ceiling applications.
When combined with Q-SYS network amplifiers, QSC processing amplifiers or MP-M Series mixers, both the AD-P.HALO and AC-C2T-LP can take advantage of Intrinsic Correction, a QSC proprietary voicing algorithm that helps reduce the set up time and tuning process.
“These two new loudspeakers answer some real pain points integrators experience with excessive loudspeaker assembly time and flexibility to accommodate the needs of virtually any installation,” said Travis Nie, product manager, installed loudspeakers, QSC. “Both the AD-P.HALO and AC-C2T-LP are unique loudspeaker options in their class and deliver the overall musicality to produce the rich sonic timbre needed for background music or voice-reinforced atmospheres.”
The new launches follow the opening of QSC’s brand new Netherlands office earlier this month.
