Before the February 2020 price increase, the QSC KW153 had the highest rating among all the powered PA speakers under $1500.
It is now the highest rated priced between $1000 and $2000.
This three way powered loudspeaker can get really low and loud, while still retaining the sound quality expected from QSC.
It features a 1000W (Continuous RMS) amplifier that drives a 15" LF driver, a 6.6" MF (Middle Frequency) Driver and a 1.75" tweeter, all of which converge nicely thanks to combination of great DSP and projection.
