Packed with a powerful 1000 watt amplifier, a tough yet professional looking exterior, and some really flexible input and output mixing capabilities, the K10 from QSC stands out as a great option in the active loudspeaker market. Since powered speakers get used in many different kinds of ways, the K10 has been equipped to adapt to any situation.

You can use the K10 as a stand-alone PA system, without the need for an external mixer. Simply attach a microphone directly into its XLR combo input, and if needed, attach a second sound source to the other XLR combo input, and a third source (such as an MP3 player) to the RCA stereo input. There are two gain knobs that you can use to balance the mix, and a dedicated XLR output that outputs the mixed signal to a second K10 or any other active loudspeaker. For more involved professional installations, there are designated suspension points and kits available, and a Euroblock connector to remotely control the gain.

The back panel features a couple of easy-to-use switches that allow you to accentuate a person's speaking voice, or to add depth to the bass in music. Don't let the simplicity of the controls fool you; extensive digital signal processing is going on under the hood of the K10 that help it achieve its amazing sound quality. There's even a tilting feature in its standard 35mm pole mounting socket that enables you to point the K10 down toward the audience, so they can fully experience and appreciate your program material. If you're looking for a reliable powered speaker that's filled with useful functions and supplies great sound, look no further than the QSC K10.

Integrated DSP technology dramatically improves overall sound quality and total output
Robust ABS enclosure adds an external toughness, creates a clean and professional appearance, and gives the K10 an internal rigidity that adds to its sonic clarity
18 gauge steel grille will protect the speakers for years to come against the rigors of touring and live use
Inputs include a combo XLR and 1/4" TRS jack for mic or line level signals, and a stereo RCA jack for connecting MP3 players and other devices
The LED light on the front panel illuminates when powered on, you can disengage the light completely, and it can be put into LIMIT mode where it will only illuminate when the clip limiter circuit activates
The cast aluminum handles have been designed to make transporting the K10 as comfortable as possible
35mm pole sockets are built-in and feature a Tilt-Direct functionality that allows you to aim the acoustic energy of the drivers downward at a 7.5 degree angle to better reach your audience
M10 rigging points and M5 yoke attachment points are integrated into the design
Can be used as a stand alone PA, as a stage monitor, or as a FOH speaker

      Comments about QSC K10 10" 2-Way 1000 Watt Powered Speaker:

      Very high quality through and through. The top handle is really comfortable, and the side handle is much appreciated, both a textured aluminum which just feels awesome. In general, this is REALLY powerful. I tested it indoors and could only turn it up to the 3rd notch (out of 20), for fear the neighbors would complain.

      As a keyboard amp, the size, portability, and clarity blow every other keyboard amp away. Two XLR / TRS combo inputs with THRU jacks save you from needing a direct box. And honestly, the amount of power is overkill if you're using it as a wedge monitor. Acoustic pianos sounded a little boxy, but better than any other monitor I've used. Electric pianos and organs sounded awesome.

      As a house party speaker, the power and clarity shine. The DEEP bass seems fitting but I wished there was some way to curtail the highs a bit. People usually just plug their laptops / phones straight into this, so a little more EQ functionality would help here.

      This replaced my all in one Yamaha PA system (STAGEPAS 250m), which was convenient in many ways, and could get very loud, but when it was using 50-100% of its power, highs / mids started getting mushy and harsh. From what I can tell, the QSC is clear at the same volume levels. Also, the noise floor seems very low. I haven't even heard the fan spin up yet.

      Deduct one star for price, it hurts. I've been eyeing sales for this, which never come, and only pulled the trigger because they included the bag for free. I hate getting nice equipment and not having protection for it.

      The closest competitor is the newer Yamaha DXR10, which I never got to try, but is well reviewed. I went with the K10 because it has a long history of rave reviews, and they have the free bag deal.

        Yes they are more expensive, but you get what you pay for. The K-Series line is quickly becoming the Go To standard for audio visual companies. This was my 2nd batch of K10s. We love them!! Get your covers from Connie on @!!

            After making two Mackie Speaker last way beyond their life time, I purchased the QSC K10's. Thus far they have been great, providing crisp, clean, powerful sound.

                I use these mainly for speech reproduction in live PA applications for venues of 50 to 150 people. These are very clear, powerful, and versatile speakers. They are very light weight making transport and set-up a breeze. I would buy a second pair in a heartbeat.

                  I play small coffee house type places, a single act. However I use a bass in backing tracks that I pre-record. I can not believe the sound quality I get out of these small light weight speakers. The bass is tight and sounds live. The K10's are fan cooled and totaly quite at full power, no hiss. I love the HF it's not ear splitting like some Thumps I've heard. You need to read the instructions (guys) to understand all the options on the back of the speakers. Once read, very easy to setup and use. These speakers are top-shelf and well worth the bucks. I highly recommend the K Series spearkers and I'm planning to buy K8's for monitors.
