QSC Expands AcousticDesign Series with New Column Surface-Mount Loudspeaker

Innovative acoustics and unique mounting solution meet the needs of reverberant and other architecturally complex spaces


QSC introduces an exciting line extension of the AcousticDesign™ Series column surface-mount loudspeaker with the new AD-S402T. It consists of four weather-treaded 2.5 inch transducers and is capable of 70 V / 100 V or 8 ohm bypass loads, making it highly optimized for delivering high quality sound performance within challenging acoustic environments.

“Column loudspeakers are ideal for highly reverberant rooms or rooms with high ceilings that need a narrow vertical beam directed toward the ear of the listener,” says Travis Nie, Product Manager, Installed Loudspeakers, QSC. “In addition, they provide a more aesthetically pleasing look and blend with any environment. We designed the AcousticDesign Series column loudspeakers to address these needs while providing a more consistent listening experience with improved speech intelligibility.”

Each of the three AD Series column loudspeakers in this line (including the existing 8-driver and 16-driver models) feature Progressive Taper Topology™ (PTT), which provides a virtual curve for more precise directivity control, allowing integrators to achieve better audio performance for their customer. In addition, the entire line includes an intuitive and unique mounting system with simple pan-and-tilt positioning, greatly reducing the amount of live load time and allowing for an easier and more time-efficient installation.

The AcousticDesign Series loudspeakers offer a wide variety of sizes and enclosure types including SUB/SAT, surface-mount, pendant-mount, and ceiling-mount. All models in this broad portfolio provide consistent, balanced sonic characteristics, and share the same superior aesthetics enabling users to mix-and-match from wide variety of enclosure types.
