By PSW Staff • January 17, 2009 One of the models in the new QSC CSM Series of stage monitors QSC’s new CSM Series of stage monitors, making their industry debut at this year’s Winter NAMM Show, includes three models: the CSM10, CSM12, and CSM15. As the model numbers in the product group imply, the loudspeakers are respectively equipped with 10, 12, and 15-inch woofers. At the high-end within each of the horn-loaded, two-way cabinets, compression drivers outfitted with neodymium magnet structures, 3-inch voice coils, and 1.4-inch exits can be found. All feature a user-adjustable pattern control of the high frequency section, which facilitates changes in the vertical plane from asymmetrical coverage spanning a total of 100 degrees to a fully symmetrical 150 degrees. Working in combination with each CSM Series cabinet’s tight, narrow coverage of 50 degrees in the horizontal plane, the asymmetrical vertical pattern is helps keep spill into the house at a minimum, while the symmetrical choice makes each enclosure capable of serving double-duty as a frontfill, downfill, or other full-range device when used with a special yoke. Hardware internal to each cabinet and the simple press of a button facilitates the release of a pair of aluminum legs that offer added upstage tilt available from 0-15 degrees in 1 degree increments. Keeping cable connections tucked away out of sight, a recessed pocket on the bottom of each cabinet houses a pair of Neutrik Speakon NL4 connectors, as well as a switch for selecting passive or biamped operation. Sold in packages including the company’s BASIS processing supporting different numbers of mixes, every CSM Series cabinet is made using 15-ply birch. Finished in black, the enclosures additionally sport heavy-duty perforated steel grilles. For more infomation: QSC Audio Website Comments Have something to say about this PSW content?
