QSC KW181 18" Powered Subwoofer

    Get Groundbreaking Sound With The QSC KW181 18" Powered Subwoofer

    The KW Series represents the next evolutionary step in wood enclosure loudspeakers. QSC system engineers have created the KW Series to feature all the groundbreaking electronic attributes of our popular K Series while at the same time designing a product that is both smaller and significantly lighter than previous wood enclosure models.


    Extensive signal processing is employed throughout, providing levels of sonic clarity and total output that defy all expectations for a product in this category:

    DEEP and excursion limiting allow for extended low-frequency response by actively managing low-frequency transients without degradation of the underlying signal or adjacent frequencies.
    GuardRail protection, first introduced on our GX Series amplifiers protects both the amplifier module and your performance from unnatural and destructive clipping.


    KW Series features a four-position mic / line gain switch that allows for connection of a wide variety of devices. Combo XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs accept both mic and line level input. Separate direct outputs are also provided on each channel for additional output flexibility.


    The LF switch can be set to NORM, DEEP for additional bass extension. The rear panel LED switch can be set to POWER, illuminating the front-mounted LED when the unit is powered on, OFF for applications where it is not desirable to illuminate the front LED, or LIMIT which indicates to the system operator that the clip limiter circuit has been engaged during operation.


    Remote gain control capability is offered via a potentiometer (not included) connected to the on-board Phoenix-Style connector. In an installed application, multiple KW Series speakers can be "daisy-chained" for total gain control from a single remote pot. Auto-standby mode is engaged after 5 minutes of inactivity.


    KW Series is designed to withstand the rigors of professional use. Advanced construction processes, premium-grade Baltic birch cabinetry, ergonomic, cast aluminum handles, low-noise casters and a highly protective steel grille provide for ease of transport and long term durability. A threaded pole receptacle provides for a positive, wobble free connection to a threaded speaker pole (included).
