QSC QSKW153181K overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit combines the QSC KW153 3-Way Powered Speaker and the QSC KW181 Active Subwoofer with a speaker tote, a subwoofer cover, a 6' XLR cable, and a 25' XLR cable to form the primary components of a portable PA system with protection from on-the-road wear and tear. The KW153 is a professional-quality active 3-way PA loudspeaker, featuring a 15" woofer, a 6.5" midrange driver, and a 1.75" compression tweeter to deliver crisp, natural audio with a wide frequency response. The lightweight and rugged birch cabinet houses a pair of efficient Class-D amplifiers that provide a combined power of 1000W for strong audio with low distortion. The KW181 houses an efficient Class-D amplifier providing 1000W to an 18" woofer, delivering deep, thumping bass with frequencies as low as 35 Hz.

The soft tote bag is constructed from weather-resistant, heavy-duty Cordura nylon and designed to carry and protect a KW153 active loudspeaker. It has a pocket in front for wires and cables. The tote is carried by 2 strap handles with an overlapping grip. The subwoofer cover is also made from heavy-duty Cordura nylon, but with grille guard. Both the 25' and 6' XLR-M to XLR-F cables are designed to be extremely quiet and flexible cables that are ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cables are engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise.

  • QSC KW153 1000W 15" Active 3-Way Loudspeaker

    The KW153 from QSC is a professional-quality active 3-way PA loudspeaker. Ideal for music and speech applications, the lightweight and rugged birch cabinet houses a 15" woofer, a 6.5" midrange driver, and a 1.75" compression tweeter to deliver crisp, natural audio with a wide frequency response. A pair of efficient Class-D amplifiers provide a combined power of 1000W for strong audio with low distortion. Directivity Matched Transition technology provides matched low and high frequency coverage across your entire listening area to eliminate "dead" and "hot" zones.

    The speaker offers excellent connectivity, with XLR/TRS combo inputs and line-level RCA inputs for accepting a variety of sound sources. Up to 3 audio sources can be mixed internally and sent to the outputs. Direct XLR outputs are provided for each channel, as well as a mix output for daisy-chaining. Extensive internal DSP includes Intrinsic Correction, DEEP, and GuardRail technologies to provide terrific sonic clarity and component protection for reliable operation.

    Onboard control options allow you to adjust EQ to perfectly match your surroundings and applications. You can also use the rear-panel Phoenix connector to connect an external potentiometer (not included) for remote gain control. The speaker has a standard 35mm pole socket and integrated M10 suspension points for easy mounting and installation. It also has ergonomic cast-aluminum handles for easy transport.

    Can be used as a PA loudspeaker for music or speech applications
    Lightweight and durable texture-painted birch cabinet with road-worthy 16-gauge steel grille

    Efficient Class-D amplifiers provide a combined power of 1000W for strong audio with low distortion
    Directivity Matched Transition technology provides matched low and high frequency coverage across your entire listening area to eliminate "dead" and "hot" zones
    A conical wave guide eliminates the phase distortions of typical asymmetric horns for more natural audio reproduction
    XLR/TRS combo inputs and line-level RCA inputs allow the speaker to accept up to 3 audio sources that can be mixed internally and sent to the outputs. Direct XLR outputs are provided for each channel, as well as a mix output for daisy-chaining
    Intrinsic Correction maps 65-75 spatially-averaged measurements to IIR and FIR filters that actively adjust time, frequency and amplitude response to a maximally flat bandpass target, for excellent performance across the entire sound field
    DEEP technology and excursion limiting allow for extended low-frequency response by actively managing low-frequency transients without degradation of the underlying signal or adjacent frequencies
    GuardRail protection technology protects both the amplifier module and your performance from unnatural and destructive clipping
    Multiple EQ modes let you optimize the speaker's output for specific applications with the flip of a switch
    The onboard LED indicator can be set to illuminate when power is on, to only illuminate when the clip limiter circuit is engaged, or to always be off
    The rear-panel Phoenix connector allows you to connect an external potentiometer (not included) for remote gain control. You can even control multiple daisy-chained speakers from a single control pot
    A standard 35mm pole socket and integrated M10 suspension points provide easy mounting and installation
    Ergonomic cast-aluminum handles for easy transport
    A locking power cable prevents accidental disconnection, while an automatic standby mode conserves energy and extends the life of the loudspeaker

  • Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 25' (7.6 m), Black

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (25') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
    Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
    24-AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity
    Caged type contact and improved ground contact
