Pair of powerful, compact active loudspeakers, ideal for crowded stages.
The QSC K8 8" powered loudspeaker features a 1000-watt Class-D power module, and its extremely compact size won't intrude on audience sightlines. Its 105 wide dispersion is a major advantage when the audience is up close to the loudspeaker. Low frequencies extend to 61Hz (-10dB) and the unit outputs an amazing 127dB.
QSC's K8 speaker features a 1-3/4" HF device in its 2-way enclosure. The primary differentiator 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 QSC K8 Speaker delivers exceptional performance in this category of loudspeakers.
Several proprietary QSC DSP technologies are incorporated into the K8 PA speaker. One such technology is Digital Extension and Excursion Processing (DEEP). DEEP allows the K8 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).

Comments about QSC K8 Speaker Pair:
QSC created the perfect speaker with the K series. I took home a pair of K10.2's only to return them as they were no match for the original k10's. Still a great deal, but not naturally true and pure. I purchased the K8's and they sound wonderful, like standing in front of a pair of 1000 watt studio monitors.
If you're a DJ playing back produced music then the K.2 series will sound great. If you're an artist who plays an acoustic instrument and want a pure uncolored rendition of your life's work without having to toggle in a color that's being played through the other side of the speaker. then you may be very disappointed. As a studio engineer and songwriter, I choose the original hands down!
