QSC introduces new loudspeakers for small cinemas

Dec 6, 2013

QSC Audio Products announced three new cost-effective loudspeakers for smaller cinemas that meet sound output requirements without compromising sound quality. All three models will be on display at CineAsia booth #100 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Dec. 10-12.

The new models include two passive full-range, two-way screen-channel loudspeakers and a compact, narrow-profile subwoofer. Combined with the QSC SC-2150 screen-channel loudspeaker and SR-8101 surround, QSC offers a complete range of loudspeaker products tailored to the needs and budgets of small-room cinema applications.

Optimized for rooms up to 35 feet (11 meters) from the screen to the last row of seating, the new SC-1120 two-way screen-channel loudspeaker features a 12-inch low-frequency driver and a 1.75-inch voice-coil high-frequency driver. The new SC-1150 two-way screen-channel loudspeaker is designed for rooms up to 45 feet (14 meters) in length, featuring a single 15-inch low-frequency driver and a 1.75-inch voice-coil high-frequency driver. Both systems are fully passive, requiring only a single amplifier channel per loudspeaker, and both utilize QSC’s 90-degree Axisymmetrical waveguide for wide, even coverage. The new SB-1180 subwoofer features a single 18-inch extended-bandwidth low-frequency driver. All three enclosures are only 11.7 inches (297 mm) deep, minimizing space requirements behind the screen.

“It’s a fact that small cinemas simply don’t require the same output capabilities from their loudspeakers that larger cinemas require,” says Barry Ferrell, senior VP and chief strategy officer for QSC Audio Products. “But until now, cinema operators have been forced to compromise—either by spending too much on a loudspeaker system that’s too large for the room, or settling for a small, inexpensive system that sacrifices both output and sound quality. The new small-room systems from QSC solve that dilemma for cost-conscious cinema operators.”
