QSC has introduced the AD-P.HALO, an integrated SUB/SAT pendant loudspeaker system as part of the AcousticDesign Series that’s equipped with an integrated 6.5-inch subwoofer and four 2.75-inch transducers in a single enclosure. It will be demonstrated by the company in its Premium Business Music café at booth 1-F120 at the upcoming ISE 2020 show in Amsterdam.
AD-P.HALO is intended to supply high-performance output and enhanced musicality for background music applications such as high-end retail and hospitality. It;s designed to be ready to install right out the box, helping to eliminate the need for time-consuming assembly of multiple hardware components.
Consultants and integrators can use AD-P.HALO alongside any number of AcousticDesign Series loudspeakers (ceiling-mount, pendant-mount and surface-mount) because the portfolio is designed to maintain consistent sonic characteristics. In addition, by utilizing Q-SYS network amplifiers or QSC DSP-enabled amplifiers, integrators can employ QSC’s Intrinsic Correction proprietary voicing algorithm for QSC loudspeakers to help further reduce set up time and tuning.
“Our extensive conversations with integrators revealed common struggles associated with other pendant loudspeaker systems in this class, which we address with AD-P.HALO,” says Travis Nie, product manager, Installed Loudspeakers, QSC. “With the quality of the AcousticDesign Series, we knew we could deliver a rich sonic timbre needed for background atmospheres, an ability often lacking in traditional pendant loudspeakers. We also needed to eliminate the frustration spawned by excessive assembly times, which can take 30 to 40 minutes or more for each loudspeaker. The AD-P.HALO delivers on both promises with an all-in-one system that takes minutes to install.”
