QSC adds new active subwoofer to KS Series Family

QSC has introduced the KS118 active subwoofer, the newest member of the KS Series subwoofer family which succeeds the KW181 model.

The KS118 is designed for mobile entertainment, AV rental, event production, clubs and performance venues for which very high output and commanding low frequency performance is needed.

Featuring a long excursion 18-inch direct radiating driver powered by a 3600 Watt Class D amplifier, the KS118 delivers high sound pressure levels with dynamic and musical sound reproduction of very low frequencies. On-board DSP optimises and protects system performance while also offering the ability to array two units in a cardioid arrangement. DEEP mode provides additional low frequency extension and driver excursion processing.

The highly transportable enclosure features comfortable, aluminium handles and four, rear-mounted low-noise casters. A top-mounted M20 threaded pole receptacle accepts a 35mm pole for easy vertical deployment with K.2 Series and other full-range loudspeakers.

“With the introduction of the KS118, QSC now offers users an unprecedented choice in selecting the perfect low frequency companion for their sound reinforcement system,” said Chris Brouelette, product manager, Portable Loudspeakers. “Ranging from the ultra-compact KS112, to the single-enclosure cardioid KS212C and now the new, very high-output KS118, this wide variety of subwoofer options present very compelling solutions for AV professionals and enthusiasts of all kinds.”
