QSC scales K.2
QSC has released the second generation of its K Family of powered loudspeakers with the K.2 Series, formed from the 8-inch K8.2, 10-inch K10.2 and 12-inch K12.2. Each model features a variety of preset contours for common applications, including as a stage monitor, for dance music, for amplifying musical instruments of for use with handheld microphones.
Users of the K.2 systems will have the ability to store Scenes that recall settings for input type, delay, EQ, crossover and selected contour. All three units can be deployed as either a flown PA system, as a floor monitor, wall- or truss-mounted for either straight-firing or with a 7.5° down tilt. They each contain a 2,000W power module matched to its woofers and compression drivers. Furthermore, QSC’s Directivity-Matched Transition (DMT) is built in to provide smooth coverage across the listening area, while on-board DSP facilitates Intrinsic Correction voicing and advanced system management.
Launched alongside the K.2 loudspeakers is the KS212C cardioid subwoofer, which the manufacturer claims provides ‘the benefits of a cardioid subwoofer array in a single, compact enclosure’. Targeting mobile entertainers, A/V production and rental firms as well as small venues, the KS212C is designed to minimise undesirable low frequencies with dual 12-inch long-excursion drivers configured in a 6th order bandpass chamber, powered by a 3,600W amp and controlled by the system’s DSP. It reportedly achieves 15dB additional output at the front than at the rear and facilitates recallable Scenes with the ability to be mounted on a 35mm speaker pole via two M20 sockets in either vertical or horizontal deployment.
