Product Details

QSC K8 K Series 8" 2-Way Active Loudspeaker 1000W Class D

The QSC K Series is quite simply The New Standard in lightweight powered loudspeaker systems. Under the direction of Pat Quilter, QSC's team of amplifier engineers have created a new standard in Class D power modules unparalleled in the industry. Breaking from the traditional loudspeaker paradigm the K8, 8" trapezoidal 2-way speaker, is fitted with the identical 1.75" HF device and woofers of the same high quality for unparalleled performance, regardless of speaker size. Extensive DSP processing is employed throughout, providing levels of sonic clarity and total output that defy the system's size and weight.

Premium-grade materials, advanced construction processes and multiple mounting and suspension options allow for a wide range of live and installed applications. 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™ 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.

This model 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 grille complete the package for ease of transport and long term durability.

The K Series fullrange models feature 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. Integrated M10 suspension points allow for suspended applications with a K SERIES M10 KIT (sold separately) or Yoke bracket (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. Auto-standby mode is engaged after 5 minutes of inactivity.

QSC K8 K Series 8" 2-Way Active Loudspeaker 1000W Class D
QSC K8 K Series 8" 2-Way Active Loudspeaker 1000W Class D is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full Accurate SoundI just replaced a pair of powered 12" brand named PA speakers with the QSC K8 and wow, in the same room and same supporting system. The K8's really blew me away and completely refreshed the sound in the room. Great sound Value!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Things Come in Small PackagesI have used these speakers for performing at farmer's markets, 100 seat venues, small amphitheaters, and coffee shops. The sound quality is absolutely amazing: I play world music using a variety of percussion instruments, Native American style flutes, and didgeridoos and the speakers deliver the full spectrum of sound and really project wonderful low end at the flat setting. I host a electronic group at my studio and the K8s were used without a sub and the musicians were in love with the low end they heard coming out of the speakers. Very lightweight, easy to store, very diverse, and so much more than I expected that I am glad I didn't get the K10 or K12s because the K8s are perfect for so much of what I do, and anything passed a 100 person audience I am at a venue that already has a PA setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Speaker, Amazing sound.Was working a show, and a gentleman from the local sound company brought himself one of these little guys for load-out. Needless to say, several of us were blown away on the quality, and quantity of sound that came out. I remember in the past QSC wasn't much of a name, but lately they really have been making strides to change that. If you think the price is a bit steep, go and listen to one, and you will understand why. I am so getting me a set for my house!
