    As QSC approaches the celebration of nearly one million K Family loudspeakers sold since their introduction in 2009, the company announce the newest member of the family. The K Cardioid Subwoofer offers advanced DSP in a compact single-box powered cardioid subwoofer solution for portable entertainment and installation applications.
