The QSC K10 10" powered loudspeaker, featuring its revolutionary 1000W power module, delivers the high-quality amplification, HF driver, and low-frequency driver of the K-Series speakers, offering 90 conical coverage and 129dB peak output, low frequencies extending to 56Hz. The K10 offers exceptional power and performance from an extremely compact system, and it can also be used as an ultra low-profile, horizontal wedge or side fill.

QSC's K10 PA speaker features a 1-3/4" HF device in its 2-way enclosure. The primary differentiator in K-series speakers is the resulting output dispersion-the K8 being the widest at 105 and the K12 the narrowest at 75. This radical approach is achievable due to a process called Directivity Matched Transition (DMT). DMT allows QSC to take advantage of a fundamental law of acoustics: smaller diameter woofers have wider coverage patterns than larger ones. The K Series matches the HF device to the LF dispersion, allowing for the smoothest and flattest frequency response possible across the entire sound field.

Add to this advanced DSP processing and an enclosure molded from ABS-a material far more rugged and sonically pleasing than conventional plastics-and the K Series delivers exceptional performance in this category of loudspeakers.

Several proprietary QSC DSP technologies are incorporated into the K Series. One such technology is Digital Extension and Excursion Processing (DEEP). DEEP allows each of the K Series models to deliver levels of low-frequency extension previously impossible in enclosures of this size. Intrinsic Correction, first featured in QSC line-array technology, use 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. GuardRail closely monitors the input voltage and controls the amplifier output stage before the onset of clipping. Unlike typical clip limiters, when GuardRail is activated, the results are all but undetectable-there's none of the typical "pumping" associated with other methods. In addition, user EQ controls are provided to select between subwoofer settings (EXTSUB, VOCAL, or FLAT response).

The QSC K10 speaker boasts other user-friendly features. For example, when speakers are pole-mounted, the Tilt-Direct pole socket converts to a 7.5 down-tilt with a simple 180 rotation of the dial. A locking IEC power cord is included, preventing accidental disconnect during a performance. 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. Additionally, the QSC K Series enters Standby mode after 5 minutes of inactivity, conserving power.

The entire PA package is housed in rugged and sonically friendly ABS (the sub in birch plywood) with steel grilles and carry-friendly ergonomic aluminum handles.

Processing, Connectivity & Monitoring

The brain of the K10 system is its expansive digital signal processing. While the DSP functions are optimized using Intrinsic Correction, DEEP, DMT and GuardRail technologies (with the high-pass filter included for use with subwoofer systems), two XLR-combi inputs, each with its own Level control, are provided. 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 3 input sources may be used at once and mixed via the 2 Gain control knobs.

Input Panel LED indicators are provided for Power, Signal Present, Mic Level Sensitivity and Limit annunciation. A front-mounted power LED may be disabled by means of a rear panel switch when desired or set so it indicates when the limit circuitry has been engaged.

Waveguide

The QSC K10 speaker incorporates a conical waveguide that maintains pattern control all
the way down to the crossover frequency. The coverage angles of the waveguides are tailored for a smooth transition from woofer to compression driver with far less "waistbanding" or other directivity related anomalies than other products in this class.

Suspension and Mounting

The QSC K10 2-way speaker 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 pole mount socket accommodates 35mm 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.

    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

      from Crofton, MD

      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.

      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.

      Top notch

      By Brett

      from Ridott, IL

      Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

      I received 2 K10's about 2 weeks ago, and they are the best speakers I have ever owned. They perform like 15's, deliver incredible sound, and look oh so professional. They have a 6 year warranty although I doubt I'll ever have to use it. The are very robust, sleek and have tons of options. If you can afford it, they are well worth it.

      A small, light, powerful, great sounding smal main or monitor

      By Kyle Byrd

      from Richmond, VA

      Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

      I have used a pair of K12s as monitors for several years with KW153 and KW181s as mains. Recently I put together a small combo to play some light, easy, quick, pickup jobs for restaurants, outside cafes, etc. The KW153s are much too big for that. So, I use the KW12s as mains - and I needed something for a monitor. So I bought a single K10. It is absolutely perfect as a vocal monitor. A buddy of mine uses a pair for keyboard monitor. The only thing would be if your drummer needed to hear kick drum in the monitor, the K10 would probably not cut it. I bought it with the K10 covers which makes it easy to move and keep clean. Right now, I am very impressed with QSC products.

      Extraordinary Quality Overall

      By Brian Diener

      from Clovis, California

      Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

      The QSC K-10 is beyond what I wanted it to be! The design is seamless allowing for almost any type of input or output and has tons of features that serve multiple purposes. For instance, the mounting points on the top and sides of the speaker are perfect for mounting lights on in small or crowded venues. I used a regular mounting bolt from my go pro camera which was the right size and also was able to find some other random bolts that fit that were laying around in the garage. You can also use the mounting points on the top to use an o clamp and attach a t-bar or a truss for large amounts of lighting. The speaker itself also has many options for sound quality such as the vocal boost which I keep on because the music sounds crisper and the deep mode which completes the low end. We use these speakers to play music for 1500+ people in a middle school gym. I am yet to use all of the features this speaker has such as the tilt direct and remote gain. If you are on the edge of buying this speaker, and you want something that is going to be reliable, perform loud, crisp, clear, and be easy going and user friendly, the qsc k-10 is for you!! I HIGHLY recommend this speaker and all of the other models in the k series.

      Thoughtful innovation, hands down best in class!

      By Christopher

      from Greeley, Colorado

      Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

      I listened side by side with the 'comparable' lightweight Mackie & JBL offerings. The QSC's have tighter bass & are more natural sounding. I mostly play blues, these have enough bottom end for my purposes, rock musicians & DJ's will appreciate the bass boost from the fairly amazing Deep circuit, or leave it off (for more natural vocals) and add a sub. The vocal boost feature sounds great with males but not to my tastes with females singing in higher ranges. I LOVE the small size, I can put four of them in my 4 dr sedan, along with a mixer, mic case, 5 mic stands, cable bag, speaker stands, an instrument amp plus keyboard & stand (everything I need to run a good sized jam session) & still have room for a passenger! I also LOVE the light weight! At 33 pounds each I can carry two at once without worrying about re-injuring my bad shoulder... especially welcome for load-in's with long stairways! Easy for one smallish person to put up on a stand. Handles are comfortable to grip & very sturdy, well positioned on both top & side. Integrated fly mounts so they can be permanantly hung, or flown for temporary applications. The concave front grill is a nice touch, doesn't try to roll off a car seat like a rounded front speaker, + is more resistant to being dented-in during handling. Tastefully attractive, doesn't look or feel like a toy. Wow, 1,000 watts! These get pretty loud, and stay clean sounding to at least 80% max volume, which is as high as I have ever needed to turn them up. Two combo jack inputs with separate volume controls + a line out make these very flexible, lots more input/output features too... (read the spec's) You could do a solo coffee house gig with nothing but this speaker + a mic & guitar plugged in direct. The phono input jacks allow you to plug in your I-Pod or other device while you're on a break. Small lighweight speaker cabinets typically give you a synthetic boxy sound, these are a pleasant exception. While nothing this size can duplicate the rich natural tone or produce the soundstage imaging of larger, heavier & much more expensive alternatives, the QSC K10 comes as close as present technology allows. This is a solidly built professional tool that is near perfect for it's intended uses.

      Awesome!

      By Justin Gream

      from garland tx

      Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

      I bought one k10 to use as a stage monitor for my karaoke set up i use a set of mackie SR153 3 ways for my mains and two qsc hpr15 subs. my mackie mains are 110 lbs each, i was so impressed with the k10 i bought another two k10's to replace my mains still sounds great and much less weight, but if you don't have subs you wont like them for DJ use. I still use the mackies in large rooms but most of the time the k10's are more than enough. Crisp Clear great sound i also from rime to time plug my acoustic guitar and a mic directly into one k10 and i have a gig worthy acoustic solo set up. "Love it" buy one you won't regret it!
