        A pair of 1000W 12" speakers paired with a 1000W subwoofer and speaker stands.

        This kit includes two QSC KW122 Powered Speakers, a QSC KW181 Powered Subwoofer, and a Musician's Gear Standard Speaker stands.

        KW122
        Building on the success of QSC's K Series, the 2-way KW122, like the rest of the KW Series, represents QSC's next evolutionary step in wood enclosure loudspeakers. The system engineers created the KW Series to feature all the groundbreaking electronic attributes of QSC's popular K Series while at the same time designing a product that is both smaller and significantly lighter than previous wood enclosure models.

        High Output
        Like it's K series predecessors, the QSC KW122 features a QSC designed, 1000W (2 x 500) Class D power module. It is also fitted with the identical high-output 1.75" HF device and 12" cone transducer of the same high-quality design.

        Defined Coverage Area
        The QSC KW122 speaker also comes with Directivity Matched Transition (DMT) technology which provides matched LF and HF coverage across the entire listening area, eliminating unnatural "dead" or "hot" frequency zones.

        DSP
        Extensive signal processing is employed throughout, providing levels of sonic clarity and total output that defy all expectations for a product in this category:
        •Intrinsic Correction: first featured in QSC's high-end line array products, it maps 65-75 spatially-averaged measurements to IIR and FIR filters that actively adjust time, frequency, and amplitude response to a maximally flat bandpass target. The result is an active speaker that behaves equally well across the entire sound field
        •DEEP and excursion limiting allow for extended low-frequency response by actively managing low-frequency transients without degradation of the underlying signal or adjacent frequencies
        •GuardRail protection, first introduced on our GX Series amplifiers protects both the amplifier module and your performance from unnatural and destructive clipping

        Connectivity:
        The QSC KW122 loudspeaker, like all the KW Series speakers, features a four-position mic / line gain switch that lets you connect to a wide variety of devices. Combo XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs accept both mic and line level input while a set of RCA phono inputs allow additional connectivity to portable MP3 players, CD players and line-level mixers. Up to three audio sources can be mixed internally and summed to a balanced output for daisy-chaining of multiple units. The QSC speaker also provides separate direct outputs on each channel for additional output flexibility.

        Control:
        Onboard switches provide preset EQ settings. The HF setting can be set to VOCAL BOOST for additional presence in the critical mid-frequency area or FLAT for accurate reproduction of the incoming signal. The LF switch can be set to NORM, DEEP for additional bass extension, or EXT SUB for use with an external subwoofer. The rear panel LED switch can be set to POWER, illuminating the front-mounted LED when the unit is powered on, OFF for applications where it is not desirable to illuminate the front LED, or LIMIT which indicates to the system operator that the clip limiter circuit has been engaged during operation.

        Tilt-Direct:
        The QSC KW122 active speaker features a unique Tilt-Direct pole cup mounting system. A simple turn of the dial engages a 7.5 degree downward tilt of the speaker allowing acoustic energy to be kept on the audience and off reflective surfaces for applications where maximum coverage from a high-positioned speaker is desired.

        Remote Gain:
        Remote gain control capability is offered via a potentiometer (not included) connected to the onboard Phoenix-Style connector. In an installed application, multiple QSC KW Series speakers can be daisy-chained for total gain control from a single remote pot. Auto-standby mode is engaged after 5 minutes of inactivity.

        Premium-grade materials:
        The QSC KW122 speaker, like all its KW Series brethren, is designed to withstand the rigors of professional use. Advanced construction processes, premium-grade Baltic birch cabinetry, ergonomic, cast aluminum handles, and a highly protective steel grille provide for ease of transport and long-term durability. Integrated M10 suspension points allow for flown applications.

        KW181
        Building on the success of QSC's K Series, the KW181 subwoofer, like the rest of QSC's KW active loudspeakers, represents QSC's next evolutionary step in wood enclosure loudspeakers.

        High Output
        Like it K series predecessors, the QSC KW181 speaker features a QSC designed, 1000W (2 x 500) Class D power module. The loudspeaker is also fitted with an 18" cone transducer of the same high-quality design.

        Connectivity:
        The QSC KW181 subwoofer speaker features dual balanced female XLR / 1/4" line level input, dual balanced male XLR full-range line leave out, remote gain control via a potentiometer (sold separately), and a locking IEC power connector.

        Control:
        The QSC KW181 speaker has an LF switch which can be set to NORM, DEEP for additional bass extension. The rear panel LED switch can be set to POWER, illuminating the front-mounted LED when the QSC speaker is powered on, OFF for applications where it is not desirable to illuminate the front LED, or LIMIT which indicates to the system operator that the clip limiter circuit has been engaged during operation.

        Premium-grade materials:
        The QSC KW181 subwoofer, like all its KW Series brethren, is designed to withstand the rigors of professional use. Advanced construction processes, premium-grade Baltic birch cabinetry, ergonomic, cast aluminum handles, low-noise casters, and a highly protective steel grille provide for ease of transport and long-term durability. The QSC loudspeaker's integrated M10 suspension points allow for flown applications and a threaded pole receptacle provides for a positive, wobble-free connection to a threaded speaker pole (included).

        Musician's Gear Standard Speaker Stand
        This Standard audio speaker stand adjusts from 42" to 71" in height, accepts 1-3/8" diameter sockets, and can hold up to 110 lb. Its aluminum construction reduces stand weight for easy transport, and its molded plastic leg housing with ergonomic knob is extremely durable.
