QSC K8 8-Inch 2-Way K-Series 1000-Watt Powered PA Speaker

The QSC K Series is quite simply The New Standard in lightweight powered loudspeaker systems. Under the direction of Pat Quilter, QSC's team of amplifier engineers have created a new standard in Class D power modules unparalleled in the industry. Next, breaking from the traditional loudspeaker paradigm, every model is fitted with the identical 1.75" HF device (fullrange models) and woofers of the same high quality for unparalleled performance, regardless of speaker size.

Extensive DSP processing is employed throughout, providing levels of sonic clarity and total output that defy the system's size and weight.

Premium-grade materials, advanced construction processes and multiple mounting and suspension options allow for a wide range of live and installed applications.

Combo XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs accept both Mic and Line Level input while a set of RCA phono inputs (except KSub) 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. On-board switches provide preset EQ settings. The HF setting (fullrange 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 (fullrange 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.

Fullrange models are housed in rugged ABS enclosures with a professional appearance that is at home in any application. ABS is a far more robust material than conventional speaker plastics and offers an additional measure of sonic clarity due to its internal rigidity. Ergonomic aluminum handles and a highly protective steel grille complete the package for ease of transport and long term durability.

The K Series fullrange models 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. Integrated M10 suspension points allow for suspended applications with a K SERIES M10 KIT (sold separately) or Yoke bracket (sold separately).

The KSub is a dual-12" bandpass design, constructed of premium birch and includes high-quality, low-noise casters. The subwoofer features a threaded pole receptacle for a positive, wobble free connection to a threaded speaker pole (included).

Remote gain control capability is offered via a potentiometer (not included) connected to the on-board Euroblock connector. In an installed application, multiple K 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.

Worth every penny!
Pros: Light weight,Good Power Output,Attractive Design,Easy to Mount,Easy Setup,Great Sound Quality

I was searching for some speakers for my DJ setup. I didn't want anything bulky that would take up room in my garage and I didn't want it to break my back but I still wanted it to pack some power. I walked into the store and seen a little K8 and read the 1000 watt label on the front of the speaker and I said "Yeah right" the sales rep heard me and asked me if I wanted to hear it, he plugged it in and only turned it up 2 notches and I was sold! It was love at first sound =) He didn't even turn it up all the way, I didn't know that so much sound could come out of such a little speaker. You get what you pay for and in the K8s case it was quality and great sound....oh they also some with QSC's amazing warranty.

Incredible sound from a small speaker!!!
Pros: Great Sound Quality,Powerful,Crisp Sound,Attractive Design,Easy To Connect
Cons: Expensive

These are the smallest speakers of the K series but lack NOTHING! When I was looking for powered speakers to trim down my current dj set-up, the sales rep pulled these out and I laughed at him!! I told him that they couldn't possible replace my 2-way 15" JBL"s then he put on some music. Starting with a little Hip-hop, Rock, then jazz. I was blown away!!!! Beautiful full sound with a smooth bass response from a freakin' 2-way 8" speaker! These speakers are sick!! They have the same effect on my clients as they did on me. They look at my speakers think they couldn't possible be my speakers for 100-200 guest party. Then I start the set and they can't believe the sound! Plenty of volume from the combined 2000 watts of power from my 2 tiny speakers (1000 watts each). I've added the Ksub for larger venues or for some extra " bass-punch". Don't get me wrong, these speaker have enough punch on their own! I've yet to clip these speakers and I've run them HARD!! If you can afford them, get them. Go to your nearest dealer and listen to a pair, you will be sold instantly. These speakers are pricey but worth every single penny!!!!!

Pros: Easy To Set Up,Attractive Design,Good Power Output,Great Sound Quality,Easy to Mount

I own the k12s so I wanted to get the k8 to use as a monitor but when I heard how loud this thing is I was blown away.
I could honestly do a gig with two k8s if I wanted to on a medium size venue I never thought it was possible for so much sound to come out of a 8" speaker

I added K8's to my QSC lineup for wedding ceremony use. They are smaller than my fleet of K12's but sound just as great. The smaller size makes them easier to hide. Anyone who has used QSC knows how awesome they are. I would never trust my mobile entertainment business to any other brand.
