QSC Delivers Its One Millionth K Family Loudspeaker
Costa Mesa, CA (January 24, 2018) - QSC is very pleased to announce that the company has sold over one million units of K Family loudspeakers since the initial launch of the K Series in 2009. The hugely popular K Family of powered loudspeakers, subwoofers and line arrays, including the K Series, KW Series, KLA Series and the company’s newest generation K.2 Series and KS Series, represent the peak of performance, ease-of-use, elegant style, and long-term reliability for countless scores of musicians and bands, mobile DJs, clubs, performance venues, A/V rental and production companies and houses of worship the world over; becoming the industry standard for today’s audio professionals and enthusiasts.
Introduced in 2009, the K Series established a “New Standard” for the powered loudspeaker category with its first-in-class 1000-watt power module, elegant design and overall sonic performance. “When we first set our sights on the loudspeaker category, we knew that we had to deliver a product that was notably better than the typical offerings of the time,” says Ray van Straten, QSC Sr. Director of Marketing for the company’s Pro division. “We believed then as we do now that delivering a product that demonstrates real and tangible benefits to a user, and helps them get consistently great results in a professional application, reliably, and with minimal effort, is a winning formula. The K Family does that, as does our TouchMix Series of digital mixers, the Q-Sys platform for AV networking and control, and our entire range of AV solutions.”
Van Straten adds, “Reaching this million-sold milestone is also the result of a global network of dedicated QSC channel partners that supported us when we entered the loudspeaker business, and today, share in our success. We owe them, and the hundreds of thousands of passionate QSC users around the world, our most sincere gratitude.”
2018 will see the market introduction of two new K Family models, the first in the new KS Series of subwoofers; the KS212C powered cardioid subwoofer and the KS112 compact powered subwoofer. Uniquely, the KS212C is a first-in-class, single-box powered cardioid subwoofer equipped with a 3600-watt power module in a 6th order bandpass cabinet featuring dual 12-inch high-performance drivers and measuring a remarkable 15 dB more output at the front of the cabinet than at the rear. The KS112 is a single 12-inch, 6th order bandpass subwoofer featuring a 2000-watt power module and a highly compact and portable form factor. Both subwoofers complement the already highly-flexible and interchangeable K Family line, providing even more options for sound reinforcement users in a wide variety of applications.
2018 also marks the 50th anniversary of the company’s founding in 1968, another milestone for QSC this year. A number of events, activities and key product introductions will take place during the year throughout the company’s three business units and around the world.
