      QSC KW152 Powered Speaker 15" 2-way 1000w (485943)
Availability:  


A 15" 2-way active loudspeaker with a 1000W Class D power module, DSP, and much more.

Building on the success of QSC's K Series, the 2-way KW152, like the rest of the KW Series, represents QSC's next evolutionary step in wood enclosure loudspeakers. The system engineers created the KW Series to feature all the groundbreaking electronic attributes of the popular K Series while at the same time designing a product that is both smaller and significantly lighter than previous wood enclosure models.

High Output
Like it's K Series predecessors, the KW152 active speaker features a QSC designed, 1000W (2 x 500) Class D power module. It is also fitted with the identical high-output 1.75" HF device and 15" cone transducer of the same high-quality design.

Defined Coverage Area
The QSC KW152 speaker also comes with Directivity Matched Transition (DMT) technology which provides matched LF and HF coverage across the 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:
•Intrinsic Correction: first featured in QSC's high-end line array products, it maps 65-75 spatially-averaged measurements to IIR and FIR filters that actively adjust time, frequency, and amplitude response to a maximally flat bandpass target. The result is a speaker that behaves equally well across the entire sound field
•DEEP and excursion limiting allow for extended low-frequency response by actively managing low-frequency transients without degradation of the underlying signal or adjacent frequencies
•GuardRail protection, first introduced on our GX Series amplifiers protects both the amplifier module and your performance from unnatural and destructive clipping

Connectivity:
The KW152, like all the KW Series speakers, features a four-position mic / line gain switch that lets you connect to a wide variety of devices. 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.

Control:
Onboard 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.

Tilt-Direct:
The KW152 features 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.

Remote Gain:
Remote gain control capability is offered via a potentiometer (not included) connected to the onboard Phoenix-Style connector. In an installed application, multiple KW 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.

Premium-grade materials:
The KW152, like all its KW Series brethren, is designed to withstand the rigors of professional use. Advanced construction processes, premium-grade Baltic birch cabinetry, ergonomic, cast aluminum handles, and a highly protective steel grille provide for ease of transport and long-term durability. Integrated M10 suspension points allow for flown applications.

QSC KW152 Powered Speaker 15" 2-way 1000w Features:

    15" 2-way speaker with a a 1.75" diaphragm compression driver

  • AMAZING!!!

    As reviewed by Keith on 9/9/2010

    Are they expensive? Yes... Are they worth every penny? Absolutely!!! I first heard them in a QSC Demo Room at the DJ Expo in Atlantic City in August. I bought them immediately and couldn't be happier. The best compliment I got on them was from a musician friend of mine that came over to hear them, and to screw with him, I put on some big band music. I cranked it up and watched his eyes get big. He looked at me and said they sounded like the whole Glen Miller Orchestra was playing in the corner. I really love the "DEEP" feature when unable to use subs at some gigs. The low end that the KW152's produce on their own sounds better that some full set up's. And at 62 pounds, they don't break your back during set-up & tear down. If you want to step it up and really own the room, then get these... You won't be sorry.
