Product Highlights
  • 40W Power Handling
  • 70/100V Multitap Transformer

The AD-C42 from QSC is a ceiling mount loudspeaker for background and general purpose audio playback. This speaker will match the entire AcousticDesign series of speaker with its aesthetic and sonic qualities. Each speaker is equipped with a 4" polypropylene cone woofer in a sealed enclosure to handles bass frequencies below 70Hz. The HF driver is a co-axial, post mounter 0.75" dome tweeter surrounded by cloth with a titanium diaphragm. Destructive interference often found in axisymmetric post mounted coaxial systems is diminished by placing the coaxial post center off center from the LF driver.
