QSC introduces the K Cardioid Subwoofer, which provides all the benefits of a cardioid subwoofer array but in a single, compact enclosure. “Keeping bass in its place” for mobile entertainers, AV production and rental professionals, as well as modestly-sized performance venues, the K Cardioid Subwoofer manages low frequencies on the stage, or any application where undesirable low frequency energy needs to be minimized. The K Cardioid subwoofer is expected to be available in the first half of 2017.
