    QSC "Keeps Bass in Its Place" with the K Cardioid Subwoofer

    Jason Bourne Premieres with QSC Sound

    QSC Headquarters, Costa Mesa, CA (August 11, 2016) - When scouting for a location for the premiere of Jason Bourne, Universal Pictures chose Las Vegas, an obvious choice since it’s the scene of the film’s climactic and chaotic car chase.
