In the music and entertainment industry, things are a whole lot easier these days. As a long time disc jockey, songwriter, sound engineer and musician, I can fondly remember a time when we were laying down tracks, splicing tape together, and doing live concert setups that could take all day.
Nowadays, everything is self-powered and self-contained. I’m not saying that’s bad, I’m just merely making a general observation. I’m doing this because I wanted to offer up a huge recommendation for the new QSC K12 powered loudspeaker.
Last month I was running sound for a band out of New York. They were here in Las Vegas to do a show for one of the local casinos. They didn’t want to haul all of their gear out here from the east coast, because that would be too expensive and time consuming. So I went down to a local music store and rented a mixing console and eight QSC K12 powered loudspeakers.
Each unit pushes 1000 watts of sound, which is more than enough for the club they were performing at. Hooking up the system was simple because each speaker has a sound chain. It literally took me 20 minutes to get everything set up. The band got into town at 3pm that afternoon, ran a quick soundcheck, and they were onstage wowing the crowd three hours later. I couldn’t be happier with these speakers. I would recommend them to anyone in the business.
