Anaheim, CA (January 27 2016)—At the NAMM Show, QSC introduced its new E Series range of passive loudspeakers.
Intended for live performance, DJ and dance music, karaoke and stage monitoring use, the series works with any power amplifier, but if used as part of the company’s E Series Entertainment System, the loudspeakers invoke specialized DSP settings to provide improved performance. According to Gerry Tschetter, vice president, Professional Product Development, “A system of E Series loudspeakers paired with a GXD or PLD Power Amplifier or a TouchMix Digital Compact Mixer offer much more than just a group of audio components. It’s a system which offers a complete QSC solution that will deliver superior professional sounding results.”
The new E Series line consists of four models incorporating QSC’s DMT (Directivity Matched Transition) which is said to provide uniform frequency response across the entire coverage area. The E10 features a 10-inch, die cast frame woofer with a 2.5-inch voice-coil housed in an enclosure that’s designed as a stage monitor or for main PA deployment. The E12 is a trapezoidal, two-way loudspeaker using a 12-inch die cast aluminum woofer with a 3-inch voice-coil, and the 15mm, 11-ply enclosure reportedly provides low-frequency extension down to 60 Hz. The E15 is a trapezoidal, two-way loudspeaker uses a 15-inch, 500W, die cast aluminum frame woofer with a 3-inch voice coil.
The E18SW is a high-performance subwoofer with a single, high-powered, 18-inch, aluminum frame woofer; a threaded, M20 pole socket is provided with the E18SW for sub/satellite use with any of the E Series two-way models. For portable applications, it includes attachment points for four optional casters.
All four models are constructed of plywood and coated in black, textured paint. Heavy-duty grilles lined with foam provide protection for the woofers and a professional appearance. All three two-way models are equipped with an all metal, dual-angle, 35mm socket that allows the speaker to be mounted vertically on a pole or angled down by 10 degrees. Multiple mounting options using E Series Yoke or M8 eyebolts are supported. Input connections include dual NL4 as well as screw terminal receptacles.
