Enjoy peace of mind knowing your KSub is driven by an amplifier from a legendary company with 50 years of experience in the field.
Speaking of Excellence
Unlike other compact subwoofers, the QSC KSub incorporates not one, but TWO 12 inch drivers. Coupled with the aforementioned 1000-watt Class D amplifier, this “little giant” is capable of achieving a 48 Hz - 134 Hz frequency response (-6dB) at a maximum SPL of 130 dB (peak).
The KSub’s rear panel features two Line inputs, each equipped with a combo XLR/Balanced TRS 1/4” jack and passive Line Outs on XLR jack for daisy-chaining additional powered subs or full-range speakers. There’s also a Phoenix-style Euroblock connector for integrating an external potentiometer — useful for install situations where you may need to control the gain of multiple daisy-chained K-Series speakers remotely.
Additional Rear Panel Features
Set the MODE switch to NORMAL for no effect, or choose DEEP for additional bass extension. Flip the PHASE switch from NORMAL to REVERSE to solve phase cancellation issues in sonically-challenged rooms or to better match the internal wiring of other speakers.
The LED switch selects which mode the front-mounted LED indicates. Choose from POWER to tell at a glance if the KSub is powered on; LIMIT to monitor when the clip limiter circuit has been engaged; or OFF for situations where you don’t want the LED to be illuminated at all.
A three-LED array on the rear panel indicates POWER, LIMIT or STANDBY (Auto-Standby mode kicks in after 5 minutes of inactivity). There’s also a Master GAIN control with LED to indicate when SIGNAL is present.
The QSC KSub is designed to endure the rigors of the road for years to come. Its cabinetry is constructed of premium-grade Baltic birch and finished with a chip and scratch-resistant textured paint. You’ll find the cast aluminum handles to be comfortable and ergonomic. And KSub’s 3 inch, heavy-duty, low-noise casters will make your load-in and load-out a breeze. There’s even a wobble-free connection for a threaded speaker pole (included).
QSC's GuardRail™ technology protects your KSub’s woofers from over-excursion and excessive heat — the primary causes of voice coil burnout. There’s also an on-demand cooling fan on the rear panel and internal thermal limiting circuitry to prevent the electronics from overheating.
