QSC Audio has introduced three new loudspeaker models designed for fixed installation applications—the new AD-S6T loudspeaker and AD-S112sw surface-mount subwoofer join the AcousticDesign Series, while the new AC-C4T (part of the upcoming AcousticCoverage loudspeaker line) provides a cost-effective, in-ceiling option for voice paging and light background music applications. They were on display at the recent InfoComm 2014 show in Las Vegas.
The new AD-S6T is a 6-inch, two-way surface-mount loudspeaker outfitted with the proprietary X-Mount system. It incorporates proprietary Directivity Matched Transition (DMT) for smooth 105-degree axisymmetric coverage, and is capable of both 70/100-volt and direct drive operation utilizing a multi-tap, low-saturation 60-watt transformer with an 8-ohm bypass.
The new AD-S112sw surface-mount subwoofer employs a long-throw 12-inch driver, with yoke-mount hardware to optimize boundary-coupling. It offers 8-ohm operation only.
Both the AD-S6T and AD-S112sw have the same stylish looks, with unadorned aluminum grilles and paintable ABS enclosures.
The new AcousticCoverage AC-C4T in-ceiling loudspeaker has a 4-inch full-range transducer housed in a ported enclosure for added low-frequency extension. It’s equpped with a low-saturation transformer with multiple tap settings, including an 8-ohm bypass, making it well suited for both 70/100-volt and direct drive applications.
“Today’s integrator is looking for a single solution system including loudspeakers and these new additions to the QSC loudspeaker lineup helps fulfill that growing need,” says Travis Nie, QSC product manager – Install Loudspeakers. “With the continuously growing acceptance of the Q-Sys platform and PLD/CXD amplifiers both of which feature Intrinsic Correction processing, advanced voicing filter sets can be applied enabling integrators and their customers to get optimum acoustical performance from these new models as well as the rest of the QSC loudspeaker line.”
All three new models are now available.
