QSC E Series Range of Passive Loudspeakers
At this year’s Pro Light + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany (Hall 4.0, Stand F71), QSC announces that it is now shipping its E Series range of passive loudspeakers are now shipping. The new E Series is designed for sound reinforcement in entertainment applications, such as live performance, DJ and dance music, karaoke and stage monitoring and production.
QSC states that E Series loudspeakers have high-capacity continuous power ratings to perform well with any quality, professional power amplifier. When used as part of the complete E Series Entertainment System, with the company’s PLD and GXD amplifiers and TouchMix digital mixers, the E Series takes advantage of advanced DSP settings in these latest generation products, for an even higher level of performance.
The new E Series line comprises four models incorporating QSC’s DMT (Directivity Matched Transition), which delivers uniform frequency response across the entire coverage area.
The E10 features a 10-inch, die cast frame woofer with a 2.5-inch voice-coil housed in an enclosure that’s ideal as a stage monitor or in main P.A. deployment.
The E12 is a trapezoidal, two-way loudspeaker using a 12-inch die cast aluminum woofer with a 3-inch voice-coil, and the 15mm, 11-ply enclosure provides enough volume to deliver solid low-frequency extension down to 46 Hz, making it an excellent choice for applications in which preclude the use of a subwoofer.
The E15 is a trapezoidal, two-way loudspeaker using a 15-inch, 500W, die cast aluminum frame woofer with a 3-inch voice coil, intended for use when high-power and authoritative low-end are needed from a full-range loudspeaker.
The E18SW is a high-performance subwoofer with a single, high-powered, 18-inch, aluminum frame woofer, designed to produce crushing low-end for live performance with kick-drum and bass in the PA or for high-level, high-energy dance music. A threaded, M20 pole socket is provided with the E18SW for sub/satellite use with any of the E Series two-way models. For portable applications it includes attachment points for four optional casters.
All four models are constructed of rugged plywood and coated in black, textured paint. Heavy-duty grilles lined with foam provide protection for the woofers and a professional appearance. All three two-way models are equipped with an all metal, dual-angle, 35mm socket that allows the speaker to be mounted vertically on a pole or angled down by 10 degrees to improve audience coverage and reduce rear wall reflections. Multiple mounting options using E Series Yoke or M8 eyebolts are supported. Input connections include dual NL4 as well as screw terminal receptacles.
QSC states that advanced E Series DSP settings for use as part of a complete QSC system will soon be available for download from www.qsc.com to support a variety of applications including live sound reinforcement (with and without subwoofers), stage monitoring, dance music and karaoke.
