About QSC Powered Speakers
Founded in 1968 by Patrick Howe Quilter, QSC’s innovations in the music industry have put them on the forefront of durable, quality powered speaker development. From tiny coffee shop appearances to outdoor venues, QSC active speakers are versatile choices. With over four decades of experience, QSC engineers on the forefront of powered PA speaker designs, and QSC a respected name throughout the industry. QSC powered PA speakers feature power amplifiers that are built into the same cabinet as the speaker. Their advanced amplifier technology means lightweight, portable, all-in-one speakers you'll love.
QSC Powered Speaker Lineup
At Musician’s Friend, we offer a full selection of QSC powered speakers. The newer CP Series speakers deliver QSC technology in affordable options. Compact and easy to use, the CP8 and CP12 feature an onboard Class-D amp with 1,000-watt peak output. For acoustic musicians, touring DJs and AV professionals, the CP Series is a lightweight and portable choice.
The QSC K.2 Series speakers — the K8.2, K10.2 and K12.2 — are built for small-to-mid-sized venues. With a 2,000-watt peak output from the Class-D amp, the K.2 Series adapts to portable and installed applications. For mobile performers gigging at clubs to houses of worship seeking permanent installations, the K.2 Series brings the SPL (Sound Pressure Level) and DSP (Digital Signal Processing) you need.
The KW Series produces high sound quality thanks to a machined birch wood enclosure. DSP and high SPL ensure your sound reaches every corner. Need to project deep bass sounds? The QSC KS Series are powered subwoofer speakers that deliver low-frequency sounds with high performance. The powerful KS118 subwoofer gets the crowd going at clubs and live concerts. For your mid-to-large-sized venue, you can’t go wrong with the popular KLA Series of line array speakers. The curved design and extensive DSP helps the KLA Series throw the sound to every inch of a large space.
Live Sound Adaptability
All QSC powered speakers in the K.2, KW and CP Series function as either a floor monitor or main PA speaker, providing extra flexibility. The QSC K.2 Series speakers can be flown, wall-mounted, truss-mounted or placed on speaker poles. The QSC CP Series can be yoke-mounted, pole-mounted or used as a floor monitor. The KLA and KW Series speakers use the trademarked Tilt-Direct pole cup mounting system. This focuses the speaker on the audience and away from reflective surfaces for maximum coverage. The K.2 Series allows you to tilt the speaker using dual pole cup mounts for the same effect.
The K.2, KW and CP Series powered speakers can daisy chain together. This connects multiple QSC powered speakers to the same source by inputting one QSC speaker to the output of another. Daisy chaining generates consistent sound throughout your venue.
Benefits of QSC Powered Speaker Technology
Every QSC powered speaker is built with highly researched and developed technology. The patented Class-D amplifier results in better output and reduced distortion across wider frequency ranges. DMT (Directivity-Matched Transition) is a trademarked advancement that reduces “dead” or “hot” frequency zones in your performance. This gives the speakers a uniform response. Each speaker also comes with Intrinsic Correction. This trademarked design adjusts the time, frequency and amplitude response. It gives the speaker smooth power response with added accuracy. As QSC continues to advance powered speaker technology, rest assured that you’re investing in high-quality, long-lasting live sound equipment.
