At ShowEast in Hollywood, Florida this week, QSC Audio Products introduced a new complete loudspeaker system for critical listening applications. The Reference Monitor System (shown here with optional baffle wings) includes screen channel and subwoofer loudspeakers, signal processing, and power amplifiers, resulting in a fully-optimized system for the best possible listening experience when high quality sound is paramount.
The Reference Monitor System loudspeaker components are the new RSC-112 three-way loudspeaker and the new RSB-212 subwoofer. The RSC-112 is the screen channel component of the Reference Monitor System. It features a 12” (305 mm) woofer with 4” (102 mm) voice coil for exceptional low frequency bandwidth reproduction. The LF driver crosses over into a high power capacity, neodymium mid frequency compression driver with 3.5” (90 mm) voice coil and coaxially-mounted 1.75” (44 mm) voice coil high frequency driver. The RSC-112 features Directivity Matched Transition, a QSC design approach that matches the radiation pattern of the LF and MF/HF components at the crossover frequency, which results in smooth, even coverage throughout the listening area.
Each RSC-112 is stacked vertically on top of a RSB-212 subwoofer, which features two specially-designed long-throw 12" (305 mm) woofers with 3" voice coils for exceptional extended bandwidth reproduction. Each woofer is loaded in its own tuned chamber.
Both loudspeaker sections receive customized signal processing from a matched QSC Q-SYS™ processor core. The Q-SYS core provides a set of proprietary DSP tunings implemented in FIR filters that provide the most accurate acoustical magnitude, frequency, and phase domain performance possible. Finally, legendary QSC DCA power amplifiers deliver the precise level of amplification to get the most out of each loudspeaker component, producing the cleanest sound with nearly undetectable levels of distortion.
The new QSC Reference Monitor System is ideal for critical listening applications in post-production facilities, cinema dub stages and mixing rooms, premier screening rooms, and small cinemas up to 35 feet in length.
