Costa Mesa, CA (April 17, 2017)—QSC has announced its K.2 Series, the next generation of the popular K Family line of powered loudspeakers. The new K.2 Series, comprised of the 8-inch K8.2, 10-inch K10.2 and 12-inch K12.2 two-way, full-range loudspeakers, includes a number of feature upgrades. Also, QSC has announced its new KS212C, a single-box powered cardioid subwoofer.
Each loudspeaker model in the K.2 Series features a 2000-watt power amplifier, proprietary DMT (Directivity-Matched Transition) technology, onboard DSP for QSC’s Intrinsic Correction voicing, a library of preset contours, LCD screen and control panel, and more. All three models can be operated as either main PA or as a floor monitor. Each model can also be flown, wall- or truss-mounted, or placed on a speaker pole, either straight-firing or with 7.5-degree down-tilt utilizing the new dual pole cup.
Meanwhile, QSC’s new KS212C Cardioid Subwoofer features dual 12-inch long-excursion drivers, each arranged in a 6th order bandpass chamber, powered by a 3,600 W amplifier and controlled by the system’s DSP. Like the K.2 Series, the KS212C QSC’s newest generation DSP with on-board user-controllable and recallable Scenes via the LCD screen and control panel. It is reportedly easy to transport, featuring ergonomic aluminum handles and four, rear-mounted casters. Two M20 sockets are provided to accept a 35mm speaker pole in either vertical or horizontal deployment of the sub.
Finally, QSC will offer a global 6-year warranty with product registration for its new K.2 Series models as well as the KS212C Cardioid Subwoofer. According to QSC, the K.2 Series will be available in select markets in mid-May 2017. Estimated US street prices are $649.99 for the K8.2, $699.99 for the K10.2, and $799.99 for the K12.2.
