The QSC K8 is an 8 inch powered PA speaker and it is built to last a long time. The outer casting of it is very solid and I have bumped it on metal door trims and on concrete floors a lot over the years but it has stood strong. It did weight more than I expected it to weight though, that is one thing I definitely remember about using it. We had this for about a year and used it over 20 times, it sounded great with almost any type of audio we put through it. I think that it sounded best when paired with a nice amp that was warm.
I did not like the way this PA speaker projected the bass in dance music though for some reason. With dance music bass, it hits on pretty much every beat and it just didn’t sound that well too me. When played with more of a jazz or even rock music it sounded much better because the baselines tend to flow a little better and don’t pulsate like bass in dance music.
The highs are very clean and crisp and when pushed to high volumes it remains clean and crisp without distortion. But with this speaker it will come down to how good your amps and microphones are. It will only be as good as that equipment is. The price of the QSC K8 seems kind of overpriced being over 700 dollars just for one of them but it is built very good and tough so I can see why it is not as cheap as some other speakers with similar specs. This is a great PA speaker to get for a first time buyer because you will have the peace of mind to know that you are getting a speaker that will last you a lifetime.
