Prolight + Sound: QSC E Series now shipping

QSC has used this year’s Prolight + Sound show to announce that its new E Series passive loudspeakers are now shipping.

Consisting of four models incorporating QSC’s DMT (Directivity Matched Transition), which promises uniform frequency response across the entire coverage area, the E Series is designed for sound reinforcement in entertainment applications such as live performance, DJ and dance music, karaoke and stage monitoring and production.

When used as part of the complete E Series Entertainment System – with QSC’s PLD and GXD amplifiers and TouchMix digital mixers – the E Series takes advantage of advanced DSP settings for a ‘very high level of performance’, according to the company.

The E10 has a 10in, die cast frame woofer with a 2.5in 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 12in die cast aluminium woofer with a 3in voice-coil, and the 15mm, 11-ply enclosure provides enough volume to deliver low-frequency extension down to 60 Hz, making it suitable for applications which preclude the use of a sub.

The E15 is a trapezoidal, two-way loudspeaker using a 15in, 500W die cast aluminium frame woofer with a 3in voice coil, intended for use when high-power and authoritative low-end are needed from a full-range loudspeaker. Lastly there is the E18SW, a subwoofer with a single, high-powered, 18in aluminium frame woofer, designed to produce ‘crushing’ low-end for live performance with kick-drum and bass in the PA for high-level, high-energy dance music.

All three two-way models feature 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.

“QSC is dedicated to building products that help even an inexperienced user get professional results that would otherwise require a far more skilled operator,” said Gerry Tschetter, vice-president professional product development at QSC. “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.”

Advanced E Series DSP settings for use as part of a complete QSC system will soon be available for download from the QSC website.
