Costa Mesa, CA (January 2016) – QSC is very pleased to introduce the new E Series range of passive loudspeakers, designed for sound reinforcement in entertainment applications, such as live performance, DJ and dance music, karaoke and stage monitoring and production. With their high-capacity continuous power ratings, the E Series loudspeakers will perform well with any quality, professional power amplifier. And when used as part of the complete E Series Entertainment System – with the company’s powerful 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.
“QSC is dedicated to building products that help even an inexperienced user get professional results that would otherwise require a far more skilled operator.” Says Gerry Tschetter, Vice-President Professional Product Development. “We applied this same philosophy in creating the E Series. A system of E Series loudspeakers paired with a GXD or PLD Power Amplifier or a TouchMix Digital Compact Mixer offer much more than just a group of audio components. It’s a system which offers a complete QSC solution that will deliver superior professional sounding results.”
The new E Series line consists of 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 PA 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 60 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° 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.
Advanced E Series DSP settings for use as part of a complete QSC system are soon available for download at www.qsc.com, to support a variety of applications including live sound reinforcement (with and without subwoofers), stage monitoring, dance music and karaoke.
