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 degrees in order to cover the audience while keeping acoustic energy off reflective walls and ceilings.

QSC K10 Powered Speaker (1KW)

By The Tone Master

from Sacramento, California

Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

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.

Easy setup, Fantastic Sound!

By Essential DJ Service

from Glen Burnie, MD

Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

I bought 2 of these with a ksub from Guitar Center along with the travel covers. They have done wonders for my set up times for mobile dj gigs. Coupled with serato, a Mac, and vestax VCI 300, I can run audio in 15 minutes... The sound is absolutely fantastic for being a tiny little speaker. The range is great. If I have less than 100 people at a gig the sub isn't required. They sound great in Deep mode. I've run JBL's and Mackie in the past, and thought for sure I was going to side with them... but QSC has won me over...

Nice speaker....

By Rusty

from Stow, OH

Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

Nice speaker. Sounds good, small size and not very heavy. Bought a single K10 to add to the band's single K8. May also add a single K12 if the band gets to play some larger venues. We would then have a nice choice of coverage patterns and a lot of power. We're using these only for vocals and a tiny bit of extra coverage for two electric guitars. No subs needed at this time.

Comments about QSC K10 10" Powered PA Speaker:

These speakers are amazing, for its size, value, weight and inputs they are one of the best choices on the market. The sound is crystal clear you will hear things you can�ۡ���t probably hear with other speakers. If you are thinking of upgrading your sound system, these speakers are a great choice. I tested them side by side with the Mackies 450 v2 and these speakers sound way better because they don�ۡ���t distort at high volumes like the Mackies. These speakers have a lot of features and it�ۡ���s like having a compact mixer and a compact speaker in one amazing package.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
