Product Description

KW Series Active Loudspeakers
KW series represents next evolutionary step in wood enclosure loudspeakers. KW series to feature all the groundbreaking electronic attributes of K series while at same time designing product that is both smaller and significantly lighter than previous wood enclosure models. Each of four KW series models features QSC designed, 1000W (2x 500W continuous) Class D power module. And continuing in the K series tradition, every model is fitted with identical high-output 1.75-inch HF device (full-range models) and woofers of same high quality design, regardless of speaker size. Directivity matched transition (DMT) provides for matched LF and HF coverage across entire listening area, eliminating unnatural dead or hot frequency zones. DSP, extensive signal processing is employed throughout, providing levels of sonic clarity and total output that defy all expectations for a product in this category. KW series features four-position mic/line gain switch that allows for connection of wide variety of devices. Combo XLR and 1/4-inch TRS inputs accept both mic and line level input while a set of RCA phono inputs (except KW181) 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 balanced output for daisy-chaining of multiple units. Separate direct outputs are also provided on each channel for additional output flexibility. KW122 and KW152 features unique Tilt-Direct pole cup mounting system. A simple turn of the dial engages 7.5° downward tilt of the speaker allowing acoustic energy to be kept on audience and off reflective surfaces for applications where maximum coverage from a high-positioned speaker is desired. KW series is designed to withstand the rigors of professional use. Advanced construction processes, premium-grade baltic birch cabinetry, ergonomic, cast aluminum handles, low-noise casters (KW181) and highly protective steel grille provide for ease of transport and long term durability. Integrated M10 suspension points allow for flown applications with KW M10 KIT (sold separately) and threaded pole receptacle (KW181) provides for positive, wobble free connection to a threaded speaker pole (included). On-board switches provide preset EQ settings. The HF setting (full-range models) can be set to vocal boost for additional presence in the critical mid-frequency area or FLAT for accurate reproduction of the incoming signal. LF switch can be set to NORM, DEEP for additional bass extension, or EXT SUB (full-range models) 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 system operator that the clip limiter circuit has been engaged during operation.
