The QSC K Series is quite simply The New Standard in lightweight powered loudspeaker systems.

The New Standard in Active Loudspeakers

The QSC K8 is an 8-inch, 2-way active loudspeaker system featuring an all-new 1000 Watt QSC Class D power module outputting a remarkable 127 dB (peak). The K8 ultra-wide, DMT(TM) (Directivity Matched Transition) 105-degree dispersion pattern (vertical or horizontal) provides for even coverage of its 61 Hz - 20 kHz frequency response across the entire sound field, eliminating unnatural "dead" or "hot" zones in the audience area. Extensive DSP featuring Intrinsic Correction(TM) and DEEP(TM) provide for levels of total sonic performance that defy the system's size and weight while GuardRail(TM) protection, first introduced on our GX Series amplifiers protect both the amplifier module and your performance from unnatural and destructive clipping.

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. Separate direct outputs are also provided on each channel for additional output flexibility.

On-board 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(TM) 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.

The entire system is housed in a rugged ABS enclosure with a professional appearance that is at home in any application. ABS is a far more robust material than conventional speaker plastics and offers an additional measure of sonic clarity due to its internal rigidity. Ergonomic aluminum handles and a highly protective steel grill complete the package for ease of transport and long term durability.

The K8 also features a unique Tilt-Direct(TM) 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. Integrated M10 suspension points allow for suspended applications with an M10 Fly Kit (sold separately) or K8 Yolk (sold separately).

Remote gain control capability is offered via a potentiometer (not included) connected to the on-board Euroblock connector. In an installed application, multiple K Series speakers can be "daisy-chained" for total gain control from a single remote pot.

        Nice compact speaker that blast out sound. Great when up on speaker stands. perfect for any size business or meeting hall, church or small coffee house/restaurant. I was impressed with these 8 inch speakers for the response and magic they produce. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

        QSC is definitely one of the best companies in the audio world. The K8 definitely proves this. So much power in such a small speaker. Couldn't ask for me.

              The QSC K8 8" Powered PA Cabinet packs a really big punch for it's small stature. It is great as a monitor or for smaller mains. They have a great crisp sound that you don't have to worry about static when you chain them up. Packs a real 1000 watts of power.

                The QSC K8 is lightweight and small but packs an incredible punch.
                I work as a solo act- guitar/vocals. The QSC K8 has an incredibly full sound. Well built. And you can't beat the price. Give this PA Speaker a try you will be happy you did. This is a real hands-on product review from Rick @ Sam Ash Phoenix.

                  I use this speaker for some mains and monitors, and use the QSC K12's for the others. This speaker actually delivers 1000 watts of sound, compared to other speakers that advertise more power than what they actually deliver. You can chain these endlessly without adding any static to your sound, and it is ridiculously easy to set up.

                        The clarity and punch of these little speakers is amazing.I own a pair of K-12's that are great. I bought the K8's for smaller venues. I could not believe the sound coming out of the small box. I'm sold on QSC.

                          Lightweight, small but packs an incredible punch. I've seen other people wishing it had reverb or some sort of effect but I don't think that's what I'd want. I control my sound through my pedal board and Fishman Soloamp and use the K8 to add power and extra low end to the mix.
                          You just have to try it!!
