• QSC expands surface-mount options for AcousticDesign Series loudspeakers

    QSC introduces the AD-S5T, a 5.25” two-way loudspeaker system for a wide variety of foreground and background sound reinforcement applications.

    “We designed the AD-S5T on the same foundation as the rest of the award-winning QSC AcousticDesign Series, which has become a staple in the industry for installations requiring a refined audio experience,” says Travis Nie, Product Manager, Installed Loudspeakers, QSC. “This new 5.25” loudspeaker offers integrators yet another surface-mount option to easily meet the needs of any customer looking to enhance the overall sound experience and create a memorable experience for their audience.”

    The AcousticDesign Series includes a wide variety of sizes and enclosure types (surface-mount, pendant-mount, ceiling-mount, columnar and SUB/SAT) and reportdely provides consistent sonic characteristics across the entire line, allowing the ability to mix-and-match enclosures in a single installation. In addition, by utilizing native Q-SYS™ network amplifiers, including CX-Q Series, or standalone QSC DSP processing amplifiers, integrators can take advantage of Intrinsic Correction™, a proprietary voicing algorithm for QSC loudspeakers, which helps to further reduce the setup time and tuning process.

    To ease installation, the AD-S5T includes the X-Mount™ system which enables the loudspeaker to be aimed and installed at a variety of precise, repeatable angles without slipping over time. It’s available in black (RAL9011) or white (RAL9010) and housed in a rugged ABS enclosure to easily withstand the harshest elements.

    Other features:
    - 5.25 inch weather treated woofer; 1 inch silk dome tweeter
    - 115° conical DMT coverage
    - 60 watt 70/100V transformers with 8Ω bypass
    - Maximum nominal peak SPL 116 dB (8 ohm bypass)

    The AD-S5T is now shipping worldwide.
