A pair of sharp 10" loudspeakers with a solid 1000W sub and speaker stands.
This kit includes 2 QSC K10 Powered speakers with a QSC Ksub Powered Subwoofer and 2 Musician's Gear All-Steel Tripod Speaker Stands.
The QSC K10 10" powered loudspeaker, featuring its revolutionary 1000W power module, delivers the high-quality amplification, HF driver, and low-frequency driver of the K-Series speakers, offering ~90° conical coverage and 129dB peak output, low frequencies extending to ~56Hz. The K10 offers exceptional power and performance from an extremely compact system, and it can also be used as an ultra low-profile, horizontal wedge or side fill.
QSC's K10 PA speaker features a 1-3/4" HF device in its 2-way enclosure. The primary differentiator in K-series speakers is the resulting output dispersion—the K8 being the widest at 105° and the K12 the narrowest at 75°. This radical approach is achievable due to a process called Directivity Matched Transition (DMT). DMT allows QSC to take advantage of a fundamental law of acoustics: smaller diameter woofers have wider coverage patterns than larger ones. The K Series matches the HF device to the LF dispersion, allowing for the smoothest and flattest frequency response possible across the entire sound field.
Add to this advanced DSP processing and an enclosure molded from ABS—a material far more rugged and sonically pleasing than conventional plastics—and the K Series delivers exceptional performance in this category of loudspeakers.
Several proprietary QSC DSP technologies are incorporated into the K Series. One such technology is Digital Extension and Excursion Processing (DEEP). DEEP allows each of the K Series models to deliver levels of low-frequency extension previously impossible in enclosures of this size. Intrinsic Correction, first featured in QSC line-array technology, use dozens of spatially averaged measurements mapped to the processor to deliver smooth and accurate reproduction across the entire sound field.
Preventing amplifier clipping or overload is QSC's proprietary GuardRail technology. GuardRail closely monitors the input voltage and controls the amplifier output stage before the onset of clipping. Unlike typical clip limiters, when GuardRail is activated, the results are all but undetectable—there's none of the typical "pumping" associated with other methods. In addition, user EQ controls are provided to select between subwoofer settings (EXTSUB, VOCAL, or FLAT response).
The QSC K10 speaker boasts other user-friendly features. For example, when speakers are pole-mounted, the Tilt-Direct pole socket converts to a 7.5° down-tilt with a simple 180° rotation of the dial. A locking IEC power cord is included, preventing accidental disconnect during a performance. For installed applications, connecting a commonly available potentiometer to the unit's Euroblock connector allows the operator to have gain control from a remote location. Multiple K Series units can be daisy-chained together to one centralized control. Additionally, the QSC K Series enters Standby mode after 5 minutes of inactivity, conserving power.
The entire PA package is housed in rugged and sonically friendly ABS (the sub in birch plywood) with steel grilles and carry-friendly ergonomic aluminum handles.
Processing, Connectivity & Monitoring
The brain of the K10 system is its expansive digital signal processing. While the DSP functions are optimized using Intrinsic Correction, DEEP, DMT and GuardRail technologies (with the high-pass filter included for use with subwoofer systems), two XLR-combi inputs, each with its own Level control, are provided. Both accommodate line-level inputs and one may be switched to microphone level sensitivity. Phono (RCA) input jacks are also included for connection of consumer electronics sources. Dual XLR outputs are provided for dual "loop-thru" XLR/M connectors and a single XLR jack is available as a summed output. All 3 input sources may be used at once and mixed via the 2 Gain control knobs.
Input Panel LED indicators are provided for Power, Signal Present, Mic Level Sensitivity and Limit annunciation. A front-mounted power LED may be disabled by means of a rear panel switch when desired or set so it indicates when the limit circuitry has been engaged.
The QSC K10 speaker incorporates a conical waveguide that maintains pattern control all
the way down to the crossover frequency. The coverage angles of the waveguides are tailored for a smooth transition from woofer to compression driver with far less "waistbanding" or other directivity related anomalies than other products in this class.
Suspension and Mounting
The QSC K10 2-way speaker may be pole-mounted, suspended, or yoke-mounted. The K10 yoke accessory kit (not included) allows for either horizontal or vertical yoke mounting, providing a flexible means of attaching K-Series loudspeakers to a building structure or truss. When suspended deployment is required, M10 threaded inserts support vertical or horizontal suspension, while the integral pole mount socket accommodates 35mm speaker poles for use on a speaker stand or over a sub. The pole socket is designed so that the speaker may be angled down 7.5° in order to cover the audience while keeping acoustic energy off reflective walls and ceilings.
The QSC KSub Powered Subwoofer is the ideal supplement to QSC K Series 2-way speakers for live reinforcement of bass instruments and drums, or higher-level playback of recorded music. Its 1000W Class-D power module never fails to deliver. The KSub subwoofer's M20 threaded pole socket (pole included) provides a secure, wobble-free method of elevating a mid-high speaker over the subwoofer. The KSub subwoofer's compact footprint won't take over the stage, dance floor, or seating area of smaller venues. A pair of high-power 12" speakers in an optimized band-pass enclosure will handle everything the 1,000-watt power module can give them. Compact in size, the QSC KSub has ergonomically designed handles and 3" noise-free casters ease load-in and load-out.

Comments about QSC K10 / KSub Powered Speaker Package:
I went from using a Fishman Solo Amp 220 to this package. Night and day. Just like the Fishman for clarity, acoustic replication and sonic fidelity except much louder without sacrifice. When I thump my guitar, the sub thumps it to the audience. This make music you can hear AND feel. That's what is missing in the Solo Amp. I use this in conjunction with a Allen & Heath 12 channel mixer, GT-100 and an RC-300 and perform as a one-woman band. The sub weighs a ton (to me), but I wouldn't want to be without it. Total attention-getter to cut through the chatty crowd. Very pleased. Picked up the QSC 6-year warranty as well.
