The QSC K10 punches above its weight class with unrivaled sound quality and solid workmanship that stands up to the rigors of professional use. Even more impressive is you get all this in a remarkably compact, lightweight and stylish enclosure for effortless handling and set up.  Under the hood you'll find an efficient Class D power module that pumps out 1000 watts of clean, distortion-free sound with crisp highs and deep, rich lows.

With 90 degrees of coverage, the K10's woofer drives low frequencies down to 56Hz making it ideal for a wide range of applications including DJing or live reinforcement of instruments, especially in smaller venues. Paired with a K Series subwoofer there's not much this speaker can't handle. Equally comfortable as a stage monitor, the K10 enclosure has an angled side for use as a low-profile, horizontal wedge and a flat side for proper side-fill use.

Processing Technology
QSC incorporates several proprietary DSP technologies into the K10, including Digital Extension and Excursion Processing (DEEP). DEEP allows K10 to deliver levels of low-frequency extension previously impossible in enclosures of this size. Another innovation is Intrinsic Correction, which uses dozens of spatially-averaged measurements mapped to the processor to deliver smooth and accurate reproduction across the entire sound field. Preventing amplifier clipping or overload is QSC's proprietary GuardRail technology, which monitors the input voltage and controls the amplifier output stage before the onset of clipping. 

Connectivity & Monitoring
The back of the K10 features two XLR-combi inputs, each with its own level control. Both accommodate line-level inputs and one may be switched to microphone level sensitivity. Phono (RCA) input jacks are also included for connection of consumer electronics sources. Dual XLR outputs are provided for dual "loop-thru" XLR/M connectors and a single XLR jack is available as a summed output. All three input sources may be used at once and mixed via the two gain control knobs. In addition, user EQ controls are provided to select between different subwoofer settings. For installed applications, connecting a commonly available potentiometer to the unit's Euroblock connector allows the operator to have gain control from a remote location. Multiple K Series units can be daisy-chained together to one centralized control. 

Suspension and Mounting
The K10 may be pole-mounted, suspended, or yoke-mounted. The K10 yoke accessory kit (not included) allows for either horizontal or vertical yoke mounting, providing a flexible means of attaching K Series loudspeakers to a building structure or truss. When suspended deployment is required, M10 threaded inserts support vertical or horizontal suspension, while the integral polemount socket accommodates 35 mm speaker poles for use on a speaker stand or over a sub. The pole socket is designed so that the speaker may be angled down 7.5 in order to cover the audience while keeping acoustic energy off reflective walls and ceilings.

All I can say is "WOW"! These speakers sound great when coupled to powered subwoofers. The output does not distort indoors or outdoors. I have used these speakers for a 7 piece band and you could hear every detail. The cymbals sizzled, the drums were like thunder, the guitar sounded fantastic, the horns were clear as well as brilliant and the bass thumped. It seems impossible and improbable that these speakers can handle the whole group but they did. I am amazed by their outstanding performance, clarity and loudness. For Ipod playback during breaks, the sound was lifelike, clean and clear. The crowd continued to dance to the "canned" music. I am extremely pleased with the "over-the-top" performance of these lightweight speakers.

I tried this unit after reading and reading and reading all the great reviews. I need it for my keyboards and came to find it underpowered for my needs. I used a small mixer to add gain and never could get any warmth out of it, and I tried everthing I could think of. The volume was just not there and the keys always sounded compressed. I went back to my old 12" speaker. I thought maybe new technology would make a 10" unit sound like a 12" but NOT!

    Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

    I am a professional a/v, installer. These speakers were suggested to me by Phillip from Guitar Showcase in San Jose, CA, and I could not be happier, because my clients are ecstatic with the performance of these speakers, plus the installation of these speakers is very easy compared to many of the other speakers at this level of performance.

        Great speakers for the money

        By MHB Music

        Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

        Overall very happy with these speakers. Make sure you use Line input of using with a mixing board. I run mine at about 3/4 volume on the back dial. 3:00 on the dial. I just fine I never push them all the way and this cuts down the noise level perfectly. I current have 3 and getting another one for my live rig. 2 mains, 2 monitors. I would even use the fourth as a side fill/sub as the bass on these are amazing and running just the kick and bass through an aux to this with the DEEP setting switch on back would be perfect until a sub gets added to my rig.

          Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

          I needed a quality Stage Monitor and I found it in the K10. Compact enough for small stage footprints and loud, clean sound with no feedback due to it's headroom. At 1,000 watts it can also be used as a Main for small venues. It's heavy compared to other Monitors but that is where the sound comes from.

            I use K10's, K8's and K subs on average once a week for mobile DJ dances, theater events, outdoor events, other random stuff. Never had a problem with any of it. Always works without a glitch and sounds great. Sometimes I set these up at home too. I noticed that they sound good just set flat. The amps are very quiet and the output is crystal clear. I can hear nuances in music that other speakers cover up. Not muddy sounding. A lot of power in a small package. Easy to load and set up. I actually put two K10's on a fork on each sub. Takes up almost no space. K subs will hide under a banquet table too if you want to hide them. You hardly ever see QSC stuff on refurbished, it rarely breaks flown. It's really worth the money for dependable stuff. I used to have another brand. It costs just as much because I had to own spares for when stuff was shipped off for service. Not worth the hassle at all. Very pleased with QSC!

            This purchase was my 5th and 6th of these speakers. They run live stage monitors for a 9 piece live performing group. Hands down, best sound, clarity and power for the money. QSC stands behind everything they build. That plus reliability is everything to our shows. You can not go wrong with these.
