OVERVIEW

Unprecedented power combined with uncompromising workmanship and quality.

With a redesigned, ultra-efficient power module that routes nearly twice the power to the low-frequency driver compared to the legacy K Series, the QSC K8.2 redefines how an active, portable PA should perform. Boasting a 1,012W RMS (2,000W peak) output, this 8 in. powerhouse is nothing short of a game changer, punching well above its weight with clean, Class D amplification. From its tight, deep lows to its crystal-clear highs, the K8.2 delivers accurate sound at levels that seem almost impossible for its small size. Crank it up and hear the difference; you'll swear you're listening to a much bigger enclosure.

Equally impressive is that all this performance comes in such a lightweight and user-friendly package, making transporting and setting up the K8.2 almost effortless. But don’t let its ease of use and its small footprint deceive you—the K8.2 has some serious kick, and is built tough to withstand the rigors of professional use. Thanks to QSC’s high-grade materials and uncompromising workmanship, this speaker is designed for unwavering reliability.

Superbly flexible, the K8.2’s on-board DSP and 11 preset EQ contours let you adapt to any venue and get your sound dialed in quickly. You can also store customized scenes to recall settings such as input type, delay, EQ and crossover.

With so much power under the hood, the K8.2 is just as comfortable taking center stage as a main PA as it is wedged on the floor as a monitor. Paired with a QSC subwoofer for low-end reinforcement, this powerful speaker can handle a wide range of events with ease.

Heavy-duty rigging points mean the K8.2 easily adapts to both flown and mounted installations. Whether you’re a singer/songwriter gigging in a coffee shop or a mobile DJ keeping the dance floor alive, the K8.2 is an indispensible and versatile tool that lives up to QSC’s reputation for quality and reliability.

    Comments about QSC K8.2 2,000W Powered 8 in. 2-way Loudspeaker System with Advanced DSP:

    We've used Mackie SRM450's from back when they were made in Italy (version 1) and have loved the sound of those original Italian boxes ... a sound not replicated in later versions from China in my opinion. That being said, I hadn't been a huge fan of QSC's over the years but these updated K8's are the real deal. They sound great, even run flat and have a lot of punch. QSC has a winner on it's hands, and we as a company doing corporate and broadcast events, have a updated speaker we're proud to offer to our clients.

      We love the QSC K8.2 and mainly use them for our Pro Sound Center Fill Speakers; close monitoring of Keyboards; rear Hall back fill (with their built -in delay).....Great over subwoofers for medium venues....An all around light, loud sound package....QSC quality !

        Comments about QSC K8.2 2,000W Powered 8 in. 2-way Loudspeaker System with Advanced DSP:

        I need more time with these in order to give an opinion. I set them up for a middle school dance; they had no comments to give, so I suppose they were satisfied with the sound. Usually you'll here from people who are dissatisfied so...

        We have a Veteran's Day event coming up in the gym and I will be attending. I'll definitely hear opinions from the organizers as to the quality and amount of sound these speakers provide.

          Just received our delivery of a second pair of the new K8 version 2's and again I'm throughly impressed with the quality, features, size and overall sound of these small speakers. Big sound from a small box! Will be buying more as we retire older Mackie SRM450's to other events.
