The QSC KW122 is a 12" two-way active loudspeaker that features a 1.75" diaphragm compression driver and a 75° nominal coverage angle. Part of the KW Loudspeaker series, this speaker also features a power output of 1000 Watts (500 W LF + 500 W HF) and a maximum SPL of 131 dB.

Building on the success of QSC's K Series, the KW Series represents the next evolutionary step in wood enclosure loudspeakers. QSC's system engineers have created the KW Series to feature all the groundbreaking electronic attributes of the popular K Series while at the same time designing a product that is both smaller and significantly lighter than previous wood enclosure models.

High Output
Like K Series, each of the four KW Series models features a QSC designed, 1000 watt (2 x 500) Class D power module. And continuing in the K Series tradition, every model is fitted with the identical high-output 1.75" HF device (full-range models) and woofers of the same high quality design, regardless of speaker size.

Defined Coverage Area
Directivity Matched Transition (DMT™) provides for matched LF and HF coverage across the entire listening area, eliminating unnatural ”dead” or ”hot” frequency zones.

DSP
Extensive signal processing is employed throughout, providing levels of sonic clarity and total output that defy all expectations for a product in this category:

  • Intrinsic Correction™, first featured in QSC'shigh-end line array products maps 65-75 spatially-averaged measurements to IIR and FIR filters that actively adjust time, frequency and amplitude response toa maximally flat bandpass target. The result is a speaker that behaves equally well across the entire sound field.
  • DEEP™ and excursion limiting allow for extended low-frequency response by actively managing low-frequency transients without degradation of the underlying signal or adjacent frequencies.
  • GuardRail™ protection, first introduced on QSC's GX Series amplifiers protects both the amplifier module and your performance from unnatural and destructive clipping.

Connectivity
The KW Series features a four-position mic / line gain switch that allows for connection of a wide variety of devices. Combo XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs accept both mic and line level input while a set of RCA phono inputs allow additional connectivity to 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. Separate direct outputs are also provided on each channel for additional output flexibility.

Control
On-board switches provide preset EQ settings. The HF setting (full-range models) can be set to VOCAL BOOST for additional presence in the critical mid-frequency area or FLAT for accurate reproduction of the incoming signal. The LF switch can be set to NORM, DEEP™ for additional bass extension, or EXT SUB (full-range models) for use with an external subwoofer. The rear panel LED switch can be set to POWER, illuminating the front-mounted LED when the unit is powered on, OFF for applications where it is not desirable to illuminate the front LED, or LIMIT which indicates to the system operator that the clip limiter circuit has been engaged during operation.

Tilt-Direct
The KW122 and KW152 feature a unique Tilt-Direct™ pole cup mounting system. A simple turn of the dial engages a 7.5 degree downward tilt of the speaker allowing acoustic energy to be kept on the audience and off reflective surfaces for applications where maximum coverage from a high-positioned speaker is desired.

Remote Gain
Remote gain control capability is offered via a potentiometer (not included) connected to the on-board Phoenix-Style connector. In an installed application, multiple KW Series speakers can be ”daisy-chained” for total gain control from a single remote pot. Auto-standby mode is engaged after 5 minutes of inactivity.

Premium-grade Materials
The KW Series is designed to withstand the rigors of professional use. Advanced construction processes, premium-grade Baltic birch cabinetry, ergonomic, cast aluminum handles and a highly protective steel grille provide for ease of transport and long term durability. Integrated M10 suspension points allow for flown applications with a KW M10 KIT (sold separately).

QSC KW122 Features:

  • 12” Woofer; 1.75” diaphragm compression driver
  • 75° Nominal coverage angle
  • Maximum SPL 131 dB peak
  • Also functions as monitor floor wedge
  • 1000-watt Class D power modules in all models (2 ×500 W continuous)
  • Onboard mixer with two combo XLR and 1/4” inputs, and stereo RCA inputs, (three audio input sources); two direct channel outputs and single summed balanced output
  • Extensive DSP featuring DEEP™ and Intrinsic Correction™ enhances system performance
  • DMT™ (Directivity Matched Transition) ensures uniform coverage across the entire sound field
  • Rugged, texture-painted birch enclosures
  • Four-position Mic/Line gain (full-range models)
  • Tour-grade 16 gauge steel grilles
  • Comfortable ergonomic handles
  • 35 mm pole sockets with Tilt-Direct™
  • M10 rigging points for suspended installation
