You Won't Believe How Huge This Speaker Sounds!

When we first experienced QSC's super-powerful and amazingly portable active K-series PA speakers, we were blown away, to say the least. Now, here's your chance to change the way you look at live sound; plug into the 1,000-watt KW152 and prepare to be amazed! QSC managed to pack a 2 x 500-watt, Class D power plant into this premium birch enclosure, and very effective onboard DSP lets you get the absolute maximum out of this 15" speaker. You'll love the connection and control options on the KW152's back panel. You'll also love the fact that this loudspeaker is built for the long haul. Plug into the KW152 and you'll be a believer!

If it's power you're after, then this is your loudspeaker. QSC built the KW152 to give you big, clean, room-filling performance, to the tune of 1,000 watts. And, thanks to the Class D design, this speaker won't break your back when it's time to set up or tear down! It also puts an array of connection options conveniently at hand. The back panel gives you mic, line, and even RCA inputs plus gain controls, right where you need them. You can even mix up to three audio sources internally and daisy chain to another KW152, via the balanced output.

QSC built DSP right into the KW152, so you get the absolute most out of this speaker's formidable wattage. Intrinsic Correction adjusts time, frequency, and amplitude response to give you amazing performance across all frequencies. Guardrail protection keeps the amplifier safe from overloads and minimizes clipping. Hit the DEEP switch and hear just how big this speaker can sound. This isn't just a series of filters and limiters thrown in to enhance the sound; this DSP makes an already outstanding speaker incredibly efficient and perfect for any room.

You know that a well-made loudspeaker is only as good as the ruggedness of its enclosure. After all, if it can't take the rigors of the road, then what good is it? That's why QSC made the KW152 extremely tough. You get premium-grade Baltic birch cabinet construction, a tough steel grille, cast-aluminum side handles, and even integrated M10 suspension points for flown installation. If you use speaker stands, then you'll definitely appreciate the Tilt-Direct pole-mounting system. This setup actually lets you dial in a downward tilt, so the speakers point at the audience and not at the back wall.

Great experience as usual.

Wow...Just Amazing!

QSC is the crown jewel of pro audio. I do sound for an 8 piece cover band. I purchased the KW series. The 152s are ridiculous. Sound is crystal clear even at 110 dB. 152s can handle most venues . Would recommend the 153's for outdoor shows with large crowds. With or without subs, speakers are the real deal and worth the investment.

Paired with KW122s and a KW181 for a Rhonda Vincent & the Rage concert. Venue was indoors with 320 people. The sound was clean, clear powerful and the audience reviews very positive. Wish the KW152 had better KW122 style handles and weighed less. The 60 degree dispersion is the most narrow in the K/KW series and works better in some venues than others. My favorite QSC so far is the KW122. I have not tried the KW153 yet. The reviews I have read on the KW153 encourage me to try that next.
