QSC expands AcousticDesign™ Series with new Transformer-less Surface-Mount Loudspeaker Option


QSC introduces the new AD-S6, a transformer-less surface mount 6.5-inch two-way loudspeaker. As part of the AcousticDesign™ Series, this new loudspeaker is ideal for foreground and background music (BGM/FGM) applications, as well as installations specifically requiring higher SPL foreground sound reinforcement.

“The AD-S6 is an ideal addition to our Premium Business Music solutions that were specifically designed to meet the high-performance needs of foreground applications,” said Travis Nie, Product Manager, Installed Loudspeakers, QSC. “We are excited to expand our popular AcousticDesign Series with a loudspeaker that is nearly identical to AD-S6T, but with the AD-S6 we lowered the cost by removing the transformer and providing 16 ohm nominal impedance, making it ideal for use in low impedance distributed systems.”

The AcousticDesign Series loudspeakers deliver pristine audio reproduction for installations requiring a refined audio experience, combining exceptional clarity, performance, coverage and aesthetics for installed sound applications. This line includes a wide range of sizes and models that deliver consistent and balanced sonic characteristics, and share the same high-end aesthetic quality enabling users to mix-and-match enclosure types. Available in black or white, they also include the patented X-Mount™ mounting system providing unprecedented ease-of-installation that minimizes commissioning time and expense.
