QSC has launched the KS118 active subwoofer, the newest member of the KS Series subwoofer family.
The KS118 is designed for mobile entertainment, AV rental, event production, clubs and performance venues for which very high output and commanding low-frequency performance is needed.
Featuring a long excursion 18-inch direct radiating driver powered by a 3600 Watt Class D amplifier, the KS118 delivers high sound pressure levels with dynamic and musical sound reproduction of low frequencies. On-board DSP optimises and protects system performance while also offering advanced capabilities such as the ability to array two units in a cardioid arrangement, maximising low frequency output in front while minimising unwanted energy around the sides and rear of the system. DEEP mode provides additional low frequency extension and driver excursion processing.
Its transportable premium birch enclosure features aluminum handles and four, rear-mounted low-noise casters. A top-mounted M20 threaded pole receptacle accepts a 35 mm pole for easy vertical deployment with K.2 Series and other full-range loudspeakers.
“With the introduction of the KS118, QSC now offers users an unprecedented choice in selecting the perfect low frequency companion for their sound reinforcement system,” said Chris Brouelette, product manager, Portable Loudspeakers. “Ranging from the ultra-compact KS112, to the single-enclosure cardioid KS212C and now the new, very high-output KS118, this wide variety of subwoofer options present very compelling solutions for AV professionals and enthusiasts of all kinds.”
