The LF-3 low-frequency filter, when used with the XC-3 2-way crossover, provides a 3-way active crossover system. The LF-3 mounts to the rear panel of 2-channel QSC amps (DCA, PL2, PL3, CX, ISA) to conserve cost and rack space. The LF-3 is comprised of two discrete channels with 4th order Linkwitz-Riley low-pass filters (24 dB/ octave slope). Each channel has a delay to time-align low-, mid-, and high-frequency speakers, and a trim control (0-20 dB of attenuation) to match levels. One amp-mounted LF-3 supports up to two other amps (even in stereo) with XC-3 accessories installed. The XC-3 features 4th order Linkwitz-Riley filters (24 dB/octave) with the low frequencies routed to amp channel 1 and the highs to channel 2. Each channel has an all-pass filter delay for time alignment of lowand high-frequency drivers, and a trim control (0-20 dB attenuation) to balance the frequency bands. The high-frequency channel offers up to 10 dB of boost at 20 kHz to properly equalize constant-directivity horns. A 3-way crossover can be implemented using the XC-3’s low-frequency high-pass filter with the LF-3. SF-3 Subwoofer Filter The SF-3 subwoofer filter provides subwoofer signal processing without the need for a conventional crossover. The unit mounts to the rear panel DataPort of 2-channel QSC amps (DCA, PL2, PL3, CX, ISA) to conserve cost and rack space. A 4th order Linkwitz-Riley low-pass filter may be set to 80, 150 or 250 Hz. The subsonic filter offers roll-off frequencies in the range 20-50 Hz to prevent driver overexcursion. An optional EQ is provided to extend the response of B6 speaker enclosures. A trim control (0-20 dB of attenuation) allows balancing the various frequency bands. DataPort The QSC DataPort provides a simple, convenient means of connecting and powering digital and analog accessory devices to expand the capabilities of QSC CX, DCA, PowerLight™, PowerLight 2 and PowerLight 3 amplifiers. Devices supported include the DSP-3, DSP-4, XC-3, LF-3 and SF-3. Note that ISA models require an external power adapter for the DSP devices, and PL380 for the DSP-3 device. In addition, the DataPort HD15 connector provides a singlecable interface to Q-Sys™ and QSControl.net™. Q-Sys and QSControl.net allow remote amplifier monitoring and control.

QSC designed this proprietary technology expressly for system integrators, contractors, consultants and concert audio engineers who need to integrate signal processing, amplifier management and audio transport functions with QSC power amplifiers and loudspeakers. The powerful BASIS hardware platform integrates control, monitoring, protection and processing of amplifiers and loudspeakers with configurable DSP and CobraNet™ digital audio transport via Ethernet: BASIS products are the core of the QSControl.net enabled products. QSC’s RAVE units, which combine DSP functions with CobraNet digital audio transport, and the DSP 322ua dedicated signal processor, are also integral to QSControl.net systems. BASIS, RAVE and DSP units are all programmed and controlled via QSC’s Venue Manager software. Far more than digital signal transport and processing, QSControl.net integrates the entire audio system – CX, PL2, PL3 and DCA series amplifiers as well as a growing range of loudspeaker systems including AcousticDesign™, WideLine™, ILA, and DCS products. Ideally suited for applications both large and small, the power of 26 QSControl.net is the logical choice anywhere a need exists for a complete system-wide audio solution – installations such as stadiums, arenas, theatres, nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, houses of worship, corporate campuses and educational facilities, as well as large scale touring concert systems. Integrated Technologies QSControl.net combines three distinct QSC technologies of configurable DSP, amplifier/loudspeaker control and monitoring, and CobraNet audio transport into a single unified system. As noted earlier, various QSControl.net hardware devices (BASIS, RAVE and the DSP 322ua) include functionally appropriate elements of all these technologies. All of the technologies and devices found within the QSControl. net platform can be programmed and controlled from a single networked computer or simultaneously from multiple networked computers. QSCreator Custom Control Panels QSCreator is hosted inside our Venue Manager software to facilitate custom control panel creation. Control panels with a custom look and feel are designed by selecting from an extensive library of faders, knobs, buttons, meters, indicators and graphic tools. Once a control screen design has been developed, QSCreator can be established as the only software required for system operations. This prevents accidental adjustments or unauthorized tampering while keeping the control template as easy-to-use as possible.

Advanced signal processing algorithms incorporate IIR (Infinite Impulse Response) as well as FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters. QSC system engineers have employed the power of the SC28 System Controller’s FIR filters to implement Intrinsic Correction™ of the loudspeaker. Intrinsic Correction is designed to produce flat acoustical amplitude, frequency and phase response by compensating for physical phenomena such as the effects of waveguide acoustical impedance and loudspeaker cone resonance. The result is excellent power response and extremely natural, uncolored sound across the loudspeaker’s frequency band and coverage area. An array of loudspeakers with Intrinsic Correction will be very responsive to user-applied equalization. Intrinsic Correction™ User-Adjustable Delays • Sub delay adjustable from 0 to 50 ms. • Array delay adjustable from 0 to 20 ms.

The series consists of three, bi-amplified 2-way models ranging in woofer size from 8" to 12" plus a dual 12" subwoofer. LOUDSPE AK ER S The selection of woofer diameter and coverage for the various K Series models is not arbitrary but is based on acoustical science. K Series is designed using a concept called Directivity Matched Transition (DMT™). DMT matches the high-frequency coverage angle to the natural coverage of the woofer at crossover frequency. As a result, frequency response remains far more uniform across the entire audience area. The K8 delivers wide 105° coverage making it a great choice for performers who work in more intimate venues where the audience is closer to the stage and spread more widely. The more directional K12 with its 75° coverage is a better choice when more “throw” is needed. The K10, of course, strikes a balance between both width and throw. All models boast the same 1000 watt power module and the same high-quality, neodymium HF driver. Extensive DSP is employed throughout, providing levels of sonic clarity and total output that exceed expectations for systems of this size and weight. On-board switches select preset EQ contours. Combo XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs accept either Microphone or Line Level input while a set of RCA phono inputs (not available on 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” 32 of multiple units. Separate direct thru-puts are also provided on each channel for additional flexibility. Full-range 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 sonic benefits 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 K12 and K10 enclosures are also designed for floor monitor use. The K Series full-range 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 highquality, anti-rattle 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 an external potentiometer (not included) that may be wired 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 and disengages instantly when an audio signal is present.

Our system engineers have created the KW Series to feature all the same ground breaking electronic attributes of our popular K Series while at the same time designing a product that is both smaller and significantly lighter than previous wood enclosure models. LOUDSPE AK ER S Like K Series, each of the four KW Series models features a QSC-designed, 1000 watt 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. Directivity Matched Transition (DMT™) provides for matched LF and HF coverage across the entire listening area, eliminating unnatural ”dead” or ”hot” frequency zones. Extensive signal processing is employed throughout, providing levels of sonic clarity and total output that defy all expectations for a product in this category. 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 (except KW181) 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. 34 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 midfrequency 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. 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 control capability is offered via a potentiometer (not included) connected to the on-board Euroblock 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.

With its simple Lift, Click and Play approach, KLA can be deployed in a fraction of the time required by comparable line array products. This fixed arcuate, active line array system is ideal for a wide range of portable and permanently installed applications ranging from live entertainment to houses of worship or other venues where a line array system is desired. KLA Power Module The KLA Series is comprised of two models, the KLA12, a 12", 2-way loudspeaker and the KLA181, an 18" subwoofer. The KLA12 features a highly efficient 500 W x 500 W power amp module and the KLA181 offers the same highly efficient power amp module in a 1000 W configuration. This efficient design enables up to five KLA models (any combination of KLA12 and KLA181) to be driven off of a single 15 Amp/120 V or 8 Amp/230 V electrical circuit. KLA loudspeakers incorporate QSC’s DEEP™ DSP algorithm, providing extended bass response by actively managing potentially damaging low-frequency transients, and GuardRail™ circuitry protection which prevents the amplifier module from unnatural and destructive clipping. As an energy saving feature, the Auto Standby mode automatically engages after five minutes of inactivity; but upon resumption of audio signal, the power module on the KLA will awaken instantly for immediate output. In an installed application, multiple KLA Series loudspeakers can be “daisy-chained” for total gain control from a single remote pot wired to the on-board Euroblock connector. Additional power module characteristics on KLA include a balanced, line-level XLR input in parallel with an XLR "Thru" connector, powerCON® In and Out connectors, Attenuation Control and LED indicators for Signal, Limit, and Power and Standby status. KLA12 Housed in a rugged ABS enclosure that results in both light weight and long-term durability, the KLA12 features a 12-inch low frequency transducer coupled with a 1.75-inch compression driver. Designed to be used exclusively as a fixed arcuate line array, each KLA12 is set at a 90˚ x 18˚ splay angle, allowing 90˚ vertical arrays to be configured using only five boxes (most other solutions require six). KLA’s unique self-contained SOLO™ (Single-Operator Logistics) Rigging System enables users to quickly assemble (and disassemble) the line array in a fraction of the time as other fixed arcuate line array systems and without the need for special tools or external hardware.

RoHS Rigging & Deployment KLA181 Up to five KLA enclosures (any combination of KLA12 and KLA181) can be flown via M10 fittings on the top of each enclosure. An optional KLA AF12 array frame is also available. Along with DEEP™, GuardRail™, Auto Standby, balanced thru-level XLR input connectors, Attenuation and Remote Gains Controls and LED indicators, the KLA181 subwoofer also includes a polarity switch for low frequency directivity control. For maximum deployment flexibility, KLA loudspeakers can be either ground deployed or flown. As a ground stack, up to two KLA12 enclosures can be mounted over the KLA181 or the KW181 subwoofer via a threaded pole socket, or without a sub using an appropriately rated loudspeaker stand. KLA12 enclosures also feature the Tilt-Direct™ 35mm pole socket allowing the loudspeaker to be aimed downward 9° for the best audience coverage. LOUDSPE AK ER S KLA12’s Ar-Q™ (Arcuate Equalization) processing enables users to quickly tune the array, making appropriate frequency compensation adjustments based on the number of boxes. With the click of a dial, the user can select the total number of boxes deployed in the array resulting in an evenly balanced and accurate tonal curve.

By focusing on installation applications, QSC drove cost out of the ILA System while retaining the performance of high-end touring line array systems. ILA System v2 takes this concept and builds on it by offering a complete and accessible solution consisting of processing, amplification, line array, subwoofer and suspension accessories. WL2802-i with WL118-sw using EB2082-i extension bar and FB2082-i fly-bar. WL2082-i LOUDSPE AK ER S Each Installation Line Array element uses a pair of high-power, neodymium magnet, 8" diameter low-frequency drivers. For high frequencies, a pair of 1.75" (voice coil diameter) neodymium compression drivers with titanium domes are mounted on a patented* multiple aperture diffraction waveguide that provides extremely wide coverage (140º). As a result, a WL2082-i system will rarely require additional side or center fill speakers and solid stereo imaging is preserved across the entire listening area. Available in black or white, the WL2082-i enclosure is made of high impact polystyrene with extensive internal ribs to eliminate acoustic losses due to sidewall flex. The Installation Line Array may be used in outdoor applications where the system is not directly exposed to the elements. GP118-sw Subwoofer The GP118-sw omits the ILA-compatible suspension hardware but retains the identical acoustical performance of the WL118-sw at a lower cost. Each GP118-sw includes a total of eight (8) threaded M10 inserts for single box suspension in permanent installations. In ground-supported applications, multiple units can be stacked vertically utilizing the interlocking feet and recess features machined into the enclosure's top panel. Also included on the GP version is a screw-in (M20) pole mount to provide flexibility as a “Sub-Sat” system when used with full-range pole mount speakers such as K or KW. WL118-sw Subwoofer The WL118-sw is a single 18" version of the popular WideLine-10 touring, dual 18" subwoofer. ILA subs may be suspended at the top of an ILA array using the standard FB2082-i array frame. When trim height is limited, the ILA sub may be suspended behind the array using the available EB2082-i extension bar. *Patent No. 7,177,437 38 GP118-sw WL2802-i GP118-sw WL118-sw System Type 3-way line array element, Bi-amp or Tri-amp Vented box, direct radiating Vented box, direct radiating Frequency Range (-10 dB) 68 Hz – 22 kHz 29 Hz – 800 Hz 29 Hz – 800 Hz Frequency Response (±3 dB) 80 Hz – 20 kHz 32 Hz – 200 Hz 32 Hz – 200 Hz Nominal Coverage 140° H N/A N/A Power Handling 1 LF / MF / SUB 400 W 850 W 850 W 100 W N/A N/A Peak Output 2 132 dB 134.5 dB 134.5 dB Driver Information LF 2 x 8" transducers; 2" voice coil; neodymium magnet 18" transducer, 4" voice coil, ferrite magnet 18" transducer, 4" voice coil, ferrite magnet 2 x 1.75" titanium diaphragm, neodymium magnet N/A N/A Controls / Selectors Bi-amp/tri-amp selector switch, N/A LF/MF shading switch N/A Input Connectors 2 x NL8 in parallel 2 x NL8 in parallel and 2 x NL4 in parallel 2 x NL8 in parallel and 2 x NL4 in parallel Suspension / Attachment Point Integral rigging system, vertical splay adjustable in 1 degree increments from 0-10 degrees 8 x M10 threaded inserts Integral, non-adjustable (straight array only) Dimensions (HWD) inches 11.8" x 27" x 13.4" 22.1" x 27.6" x 30.3" 22.1" x 27.6" x 30.3" Dimensions (HWD) mm 300 mm x 686 mm x 340 mm 562 mm x 702 mm x 771 mm 562 mm x 702 mm x 771 mm Net Weight (each) 37 lb / 16.8 kg 107 lb / 48.5 kg 111 lb / 50.4 kg HF HF 1 Continuous IEC specified test signal, 2 hours. 2 Calculated at 1 m using power capacity and system sensitivity. 6 dB peak-to-average signal ratio assumed.

WideLine-8 Line Array System Concert Systems Installed Sound WL3082 Designed for the most demanding concert and installation audio professionals, the WideLine™ WideLine-8 system packs full size line array performance into an ultra compact package measuring less than 20" (508 mm) wide and 9" (229 mm) high. WideLine-8 fits “difficult” venues with height or sightline restrictions that limit the placement and size of the array. It eases transport requirements to avoid rising fuel costs. LOUDSPE AK ER S Each tri-amplified WideLine-8 element uses a pair of highpower neodymium 8" low-frequency drivers. Both generate the low frequencies, but to maintain wide 140° horizontal coverage at crossover, only one extends into the mid-range. High frequencies are handled by a 3" diaphragm, neodymium compression driver on QSC’s patented* multiple aperture diffraction slot waveguide. Enclosures are Baltic birch plywood with an environmentally friendly, field-repairable waterborne polymer finish and lightweight, rustproof aluminum suspension fittings. *Patent No. 7,177,437 40 Flexible Arrays An elegantly simple 4-point suspension system combined with light weight, compact size and excellent handling ergonomics mean that one crew person can easily deploy an array. A single AF3082-L array frame suspends up to twelve line array elements or up to twelve line array elements plus four subwoofers. Arrays can be assembled using only WL3082 elements for events where extreme low end below 62 Hz is not required. For additional subbass impact, WL212-sw subwoofers can be flown at the top of the array, or behind the fullrange array by utilizing the EB3082 extension bar. Arrays of up to twelve WL3082 modules, with four WL212-sw subwoofers flown behind can be accommodated by the combination of 2 x AF3082-S small array frames and a single EB3082 extension bar. As many as twelve WL3082 modules can be suspended using one AF3082-S while the AF3082-L large array frame can be used to assemble arrays of up to twelve WL3082 modules alone or suspended below up to four WL212-sw subwoofers. The AF8-10 adapter frame allows the user to add WL3082 WideLine-8 arrays beneath WL2102 WideLine-10 arrays. The PB3082 pullback bar can be used to attain extra downangle in flown arrays or as a suspension bar for arrays of up to eight WL3082 modules. *Note: In application where the AF3082-S (small array frame) is utilized, a PB3082 (pull-back bar) will be required for setting the array angle (focusing) of each array.

For suspension in permanent installations each GP212-sw subwoofer includes a total of six (6) threaded M10 inserts. For ground-supported applications, the subwoofers may be stacked horizontally using their interlocking feet and recess features machined into the enclosure’s top panel. A screw-in (M20) pole mount has been added to provide flexibility in use with small 2-way pole-mount full-range speakers. The WL212-sw, WideLine-8 Subwoofer, and the GP212-sw are acoustically identical subwoofers, differing primarily in suspension hardware. Both subwoofers set a new benchmark for extraordinary acoustic output from a miniscule enclosure. At first glance, the enclosure seems too small for a pair of 4" voice coil, long-excursion 12" woofers. The extremely low profile (under 15" / 38 mm) also makes the WL212-sw sub a great choice for installed and portable use under a stage or in other tight quarters. The 4th order bandpass design produces 135 dB peak SPL and has LF extension to 32 Hz – all the power and punch needed for popular music. WL212-sw Enclosure width matches the WL3082 (WideLine-8) allowing it to be flown above or behind a WideLine-8 array. Adding WL212-sw subwoofers to tri-amplified WL3082 arrays creates a 4-way active system. A WideLine-8 system can be flown or ground stacked.

LOUDSPE AK ER S WL2102-wx RoHS 49 CSM Series Concert Stage Monitor Systems Concert Systems CSM10 | CSM12 | CSM15 LOUDSPE AK ER S The CSM Series are “system packages” comprised of stage monitor loudspeakers, proprietary digital processing and high-power amplifiers in a tightly integrated design that offers the highest output to size ratio of any premium brand stage monitor on the market to date. Combining elegant industrial design with state of the art driver and waveguide technology, these very low-profile wedges embody all the contemporary attributes asked for by today’s most demanding monitor engineers. Achieving all this requires very specific power and digital processing. The amazing performance of the CSM models is a result of extensive and sophisticated application of digital signal processing. The processing algorithms can not be readily replicated on other DSP platforms. CSM Series are designed only for use with the appropriate QSC processing using a digital controller from the QSControl.net™ series of processors. Selectable Coverage Pattern CSM models utilize a selectable pattern control “shutter” system that enables the user to limit the amount of high-frequency energy spilling over into the audience, while increasing its upstage coverage angle. By opening the shutter, the vertical coverage is converted to an asymmetrical pattern of +45° and -75° off axis, while maintaining a nominal 50° pattern 50 in the horizontal. With the shutter closed, the enclosure can be used as a wide coverage 150°H x 50°V utility fill speaker. Internal Angle Adjusters In addition to the generous upstage coverage of the CSM waveguide, special integral hardware provides up to an additional 15°, in 1° increments, of angle to the enclosure to gain more extreme upstage coverage. Hidden and Protected Connectors One of the problematic conditions that have long plagued most stage monitor designs is the location of the input and output speaker connections. If they are located on the sides, they can often be in the way when placing multiple monitors side by side. If they get mounted on the down-stage side (facing the audience), they tend to become unsightly and cluttered in view from the audience. If they are placed on the up-stage side (facing the musician), they tend to wind up under the performer's feet and often get damaged or broken during performances.
