QSC brings professional-grade audio performance to an all-new level of portability with the CP8 powered speaker. The CP8 packs advanced components and processing power into an amazingly lightweight yet rugged enclosure. Musicians, DJs, educators and AV professionals will appreciate the CP8's mix of power, clarity and convenience.

Class-D Amplifier Delivers Serious Power

At the heart of the CP8 is an efficient yet potent Class-D amplifier that generates 1,000W of peak power. This amplifier works with the CP8's 8" woofer and 1.4" compression driver to deliver tight, articulate bass, crisp highs and full midrange—all from an ultracompact cabinet. The 90° coverage pattern ensures balanced coverage over a wide area.

Simple Interface, Sophisticated Sound

Despite its small size, the CP8 is packed with advanced technology to optimize your sound. QSC's Intrinsic Correction DSP provides EQ, crossover and speaker protection to produce accurate, full-range audio free of distortion. The CP8's one-touch Contour dial lets you quickly select from four EQ presets—Default, Dance, Floor Monitor and Speech—to suit any application or venue. High-pass filter settings also allow using the CP8 with a subwoofer.

Road-Ready and Install-Friendly

Weighing just 21 pounds, the CP8 is easy to transport and set up anywhere you need great sound. Its molded enclosure is both durable and stylish, sporting a modern silhouette and steel grille. Input connections include two balanced 1/4"TRS/XLR combo jacks and 3.5 mm TRS. Mounting points on the CP8 allow permanent installation, and M8 rigging points add suspension options.

Premium Components, Professional Results

QSC builds the CP8 to meet the demands of real-world use, with high-quality components and rugged, road-tested construction. Input connectors and switches are designed for frequent use and handling. Overall, the CP8 delivers professional-caliber performance and durability in a go-anywhere package.
