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.

    Comments about QSC K8 8" Powered PA Cabinet:

    I am a one man act. I sing, play accordion, clarinet and keyboard and everything is coming through one powered speaker. I was using a heavy EV 250 for years and was getting worn out schlepping it around. The last job I did was a party in a very large room with over two hundred people. When I got there there was a DJ with a massive system and two large speakers. He watched me set up and I asked if I could put the K8 on one of his speakers.
    He said, "is that it ? don't you have another one." I said "that's it." I proceeded to perform and the K8 was clear as a bell with my voice and every instrument.

    Comments about QSC K8 8" Powered PA Cabinet:

    I was looking for a single speaker to sing through and to add more volume for larger venues. I play in an acoustic trio and play my guitar through an Ultrasound. The QSC K8 has two inputs so I can sing through one and use the other to accept the direct out from the Ultrasound. Ridiculously good sound for a compact speaker!
    I compared this to the latest model JBL and Mackie 10" and this 8" QSC blew them away.
