QSC has launched its AcousticPerformance two-way full-range loudspeakers, ideal for installed sound reinforcement applications where high SPL is required.

All models feature a three-inch voice coil and high power-capacity compression driver, along with with high-output woofers.

“In keeping with QSC’s loudspeaker design philosophy, all AcousticPerformance loudspeakers feature Directivity Matched Transition (DMT), which matches the compression driver to the natural coverage angle of the woofer in the cross-over region,” stated Phil Sanchez, QSC loudspeaker product manager. “When combined with their axisymmetric waveguides, AcousticPerformance loudspeakers deliver a flat power response with smooth and accurate sonic reproduction and remarkably consistent coverage both on- and off-axis.”

The AcousticPerformance units can be used in passive (full-range) mode to minimise amplifier channel count or bi-amp mode for greater control and performance. Bi-amp and full-range tunings – using QSC Intrinsic Correction techniques – are available for Q-Sys and future QSC products.

All models feature M10 mounting points, as well as points for an optional yoke bracket. The AP-5122m multi-purpose enclosure offers a 40-degree angle, making it ideal for floor monitor use, and a pole cup for deployment on to a loudspeaker stand. The enclosure and terminal input cup on the AP-5122m have also been designed to facilitate the cable runs for a clean appearance on stage.

The AcousticPerformance grilles are unadorned, eliminating the need to cover-up logo treatments, which can be difficult to hide or remove. Grilles are lined with acoustically transparent backing as well, adding to the enclosure’s professional appearance.

The AP-5102/5122/5152 speakers are available in Black (RAL 9011) and White (RAL 9010) finishes, but the AP-5122m is available in Black only. All AcousticPerformance products are packaged in environmentally friendly, recyclable cartons.
