Overview

With proven performance and solid workmanship, the KW122 takes the next evolutionary step in wood enclosure loudspeakers. QSC engineers combined all the technical advancements of the K Series with a custom-designed, tour-grade Baltic birch cabinet for unmatched sound quality and durability that’s ready for the road.

Although smaller and lighter than previous wood enclosure models, the powerful KW122 cranks out clean, tight sound at output levels that seem almost impossible for its size.

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, tight lows. 75 degrees of coverage, the KW122's woofer drives low frequencies down to 50Hz making it ideal for a wide range of applications, especially DJing or live reinforcement of instruments. Equally comfortable as a stage monitor, the KW122 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 KW122, including Digital Extension and Excursion Processing (DEEP). DEEP allows the KW122 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 KW122 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 KW Series units can be daisy-chained together to one centralized control. 

Suspension and Mounting

The KW122 may be pole-mounted, suspended, or yoke-mounted. The yoke accessory kit (not included) allows for either horizontal or vertical yoke mounting, providing a flexible means of attaching KW 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 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.

        Comments about QSC KW122 Active Loudspeaker 1000 Watt 12 Inch 2 Way:

        QSC makes top quality products. I had the QSC KW153 set and they are outstanding in every respect. I bought the KW 122 set to primarily use as monitors, but they can also be turned around and added to support the KW153 set with sub later if desired. Based on my personal experience, I will always try QSC products first because of the quality results I have had so far. When a new product comes out PA speakers wise, I find myself comparing it to my QSC products. Their are other quality products out there but I haven't heard anything that will make me switch yet. Kinda like you'really a Ford over Chevy guy, or Matrin over Taylor guitare guy... all quality products just one is better for you in particular.
