The QSC KW Series represents the next evolutionary step in wood enclosure loudspeakers. QSC's system engineers have created the KW Series to feature groundbreaking electronic attributes, while at the same time designing a product that is both smaller and significantly lighter than previous wood enclosure models.

High Output: Each of the four KW Series models features a QSC designed, 1000 watt (2 x 500) Class D power module. And continuing in the K Series tradition, every model is fitted with the identical high-output 1.75 inch HF device (full-range models) and woofers of the same high quality design, regardless of speaker size.

Defined Coverage Area: Directivity Matched Transition (DMT) provides for matched LF and HF coverage across the entire listening area, eliminating unnatural dead or hot frequency zones.

DSP: Extensive signal processing is employed throughout, providing levels of sonic clarity and total output that defy all expectations for a product in this category.

Connectivity: KW Series features a four-position mic / line gain switch that allows for connection of a wide variety of devices. Combo XLR and 1/4 inch TRS inputs accept both mic and line level input while a set of RCA phono inputs (except KW181) allow additional connectivity to portable MP3 players, CD players and line-level mixers. Up to three audio sources can be mixed internally and summed to a balanced output for daisy-chaining of multiple units. Separate direct outputs are also provided on each channel for additional output flexibility.

Control: On-board switches provide preset EQ settings. The HF setting (full-range models) can be set to VOCAL BOOST for additional presence in the critical mid-frequency area or FLAT for accurate reproduction of the incoming signal. The LF switch can be set to NORM, DEEP for additional bass extension, or EXT SUB (full-range models) for use with an external subwoofer. The rear panel LED switch can be set to POWER, illuminating the front-mounted LED when the unit is powered on, OFF for applications where it is not desirable to illuminate the front LED, or LIMIT which indicates to the system operator that the clip limiter circuit has been engaged during operation.

Tilt-Direct: The KW122 features a unique Tilt-Direct pole cup mounting system. A simple turn of the dial engages a 7.5 degree downward tilt of the speaker allowing acoustic energy to be kept on the audience and off reflective surfaces for applications where maximum coverage from a high-positioned speaker is desired.

Remote Gain: Remote gain control capability is offered via a potentiometer (not included) connected to the on-board Phoenix-Style connector. In an installed application, multiple KW Series speakers can be daisy-chained for total gain control from a single remote pot. Auto-standby mode is engaged after 5 minutes of inactivity.

Premium-grade materials: KW Series is designed to withstand the rigors of professional use. Advanced construction processes, premium-grade Baltic birch cabinetry, ergonomic, cast aluminum handles, and a highly protective steel grille provide for ease of transport and long term durability. Wobble free connection to a threaded speaker pole (included).

Awesome !!
Product Rating

Very rugged for a small footprint ! Kinda heavy , little more than my Eon G 2's but that dont matter to me !A great design !!

I love that you can use the tilt for seven degree angled down projection on stands ! Very great for monitors or FOH in a small venue !!! Lots of inputs and a 1000 watts !The deep switch really makes the 12 thump ! You would not believe how they sound flown from trussing ! Wow

Simple plug and play !! I use them in my PA rigg for monitors mostly ! They are awesome for a small DJ rig too ! Used them several times for DJ parties ! Simple

Best I have heard for a long time in a box with a twelve inch woofer ! They really cut thru loud stage volumes and have great clarity !

Your general opinion of this product.

So far I love them and want another pair ! I have sold all my JBL Eon G2's just to get a pair of these ! They work for all the applications that I come up with ! Two of them do so much !! Must have !!
