Intelligent Active Speakers: QSC Introduces L Class, the next generation of advanced, active loudspeakers for DJs.
Costa Mesa, Calif. – QSC has introduced L Class, its next generation of advanced, intelligent, active loudspeakers for applications ranging from portable, plug-and-play setups for DJs to networked, high-tech AV productions and fixed installations for clubs.
L Class delivers its performance and audio experience via high-output amplification, state-of-the-art DSP, premium components, extensive system intelligence and an elegantly intuitive user interface. Onboard Dante connects L Class to networked AV systems and connected stages.
Developed with sound quality and expandability in mind, the new LA108 (two-way, 8-inch) and LA112 (two-way, 12-inch) active line-array loudspeakers are complemented by the LS118 (single 18-inch) active subwoofer, each offering a combination of innovation and ease of use.
Technical innovations abound in the LA108 and LA112, including the proprietary QSC LEAF (Length-Equalized Acoustic Flare) waveguide, the ergonomically designed, single operator QSC RapidDeploy rigging system, and QSC AWARE (Automatic Wireless Array Recognition) system intelligence, which also provides one-button single box or full array intelligence and optimization.
The LS118 active subwoofer’s on-board DSP further optimizes and protects system performance while also offering advanced capabilities such as the ability to array two units in a cardioid arrangement, maximizing low frequency output in front while minimizing unwanted energy around the sides and rear of the system. DEEP mode provides additional low frequency extension and driver excursion processing. All models feature QSC Acoustic Linear Phase (ALP) design, allowing cohesive phase response when deployed with other QSC loudspeakers in a given environment.
Both line array loudspeakers can be deployed using dedicated array frames, ground-stacked (array frame combined with optional sub-stack adapter) or mounted in one of two pole cups using loudspeaker stands or poles of various lengths. The LS118 can be deployed in both horizontal and vertical orientations in a ground-stack configuration or using one of its two pole receptacles.
All three models feature daisy-chain connections for analog and digital audio as well as AC power (PowerCON TRUE1) and are backed by an industry-best global Six-Year Extended Warranty, with product registration.
The QSC SysNav (System Navigator) App for Windows and iPadOS further enhances the L Class user experience, providing the ability to easily design, configure, control, monitor and apply signal processing to individual loudspeakers, full arrays or groupings of both. Additionally, the AIM (Array Installation Modeling) prediction tool lets the user visualize array coverage by positioning virtual loudspeakers and arrays in a scaled, graphical model of a venue or installation space.
