Compact Yet Powerful Active PA Speakers from QSC

We'll sum up the QSC K10 active loudspeaker in a word: "WOW." When QSC came to Sweetwater to let us hear their K Series of speakers, we could hardly believe our ears. These extremely lightweight, 1,000W powerhouses will redefine your expectations of how a compact PA speaker should sound. They're loud, yes. But they have the kind of balance and clarity you expect to find in only the best studio monitors. And their wide dispersion means everyone in the audience can hear clearly. Your portable PA rig doesn't have to sound small when you're equipped with QSC K10 active loudspeakers.

Built-in DSP for tailored sonic performance

QSC packed in tailored EQ switches and DSP, so you can adjust the K10's sound to whatever you're doing. Our favorite is the DEEP switch. Flip it on, and you've got an unbelievable bass response from a 10" speaker. You can always add a sub if you want true full-range response. Use the Vocal Boost to give the mid-frequency area more presence or keep it flat for "what goes in is what comes out" honesty. Other clever touches include the switchable LED light; if you find it visually intrusive, simply turn it off. You can even have the LED work as a Clip Limiter Circuit indicator, so the sound engineer knows what's going on, even from the back of the room.

Smart input/output options

The QSC K10's combo XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs accept both Mic and Line Level input, and a set of RCA phono inputs make it easy to hook up your 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 — very handy. Separate direct outputs are also provided on each channel for even more flexibility.

Dual-angle pole socket for more positioning options

When you're playing to a smaller room, it's often better to angle your speakers down towards the audience as opposed to firing straight into the back wall. QSC K10 speakers feature a Tilt-Direct pole socket that makes it easy to angle the speaker downward 7.5 degrees.

Great for keyboard amplification

Most of the reviewers here are using the K-10s as a PA or as monitors, so I thought I'd throw out just how good these are for keyboard amplification. After 45 years of using conventional keyboard and (shudder) guitar amps, I made the switch to powered PA speakers and it was definitely a step up. At one end of the spectrum are the low-volume gigs, where these shine due to their low noise and flat response. At the other end are larger venues where these serve as stage monitors and the mains provide most of the volume. My problem was the in-between gigs, small enough to not bother with a send to the mains but big enough to demand a lot from my amplifiers. The K-10s scale up nicely, maintaining a consistent tone over a wide range of levels.

I was looking for something for live performances that reproduced clear, quallity music and brought out clear, intelligible, great frequency response for voice, with quality volume. The QSC K10 did just that. It blew me away! My friends also were very impressed.

QSC K10's Simply the Best

I have been using various speakers for our Flamenco Fusion band and we have tried other brands and set ups including the Bose systems and what we have landed with is the QSC K10's they can handle the full spectrum of sound from bass, synth, drums, backing tracks, and Flamenco Guitars and sound amazing. We use the PreSonus Studio Live 16.0.2 Mixer and we just sound great. The QSC K10's really made a huge difference in the way we sound and play. They sound clear, detailed no muddiness and the fans love the way we sound. The ease of the use is great too and can be used for a solo gig with a iPod hooked up to play backing tracks. Great speaker and for our use just the best we can play louder with out feedback and the clarity of tone is just something you have to experience to understand. Thanks QSC.

K10 is Flawless!!!!

I bought the QSC K10 to try it out after a Recommendation from my sweetwater Engineer, Aaron Rom. Right out of the box it sounded Phenomenal! I have a Yamaha cp33 stage piano and it sounds absolutely gorgeous coming through the K10. I will soon be adding a workstation synthesizer to my set-up (Sticking with Motif as The Kronos has turned out to be a disappointment). But as for the K10, you could run a toy Casio through it and not believe your ears. I registered it with QSC and its covered for 6 years!!!! I know it's price but take it from me... IT IS WELL WORTH IT!!!!!! I'll be purchasing a second k10 to run in stereo for sure! Hope this helps someone and GOD BLESS QSC!!!!!
