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

    High Output: Like K Series, 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.

    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).

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have a high energy rock band{Grand Funk. J.Geils, Springsteen etc. 3 part harmonies,a CP4 stage piano, 5 piece in total. I bought the JBL 735s but the back panel and housing on both cabinets rattled and buzzed at low frequencies. The overall sound was good but I refuse to pay that kind of money for a cheaply built product. So I took a major hit to trade them in for the QSC 153s. Thank God I did. They cost more although GC gave me a good discount and I could not be happier with EVERYTHING about these speakers. Overall sound is far superior to JBL. Vocals, keys, everything ! Just a better balance from lows to highs. The band thought I was crazy to get rid of the JBLs due to some buzzing sounds, but they are praising my decision now ! I must say for extra large venues or outside, I bought 2 DXR 15 to give an spl level boost and the combination Of the QSCs and DXR15 is well.. let's just say a wall of sound !Probably won't need that much power often, But I got it. QSC 153 are phenomenal.
