Summary: Just replaced an old Mackie that blew out. Love this QSC. Clean articulate bass. I use it in the house audio system at a community center - about 2600 square feet, with 14' ceilings. It is used every day.
Excerpt: I bought the QSC KW181 subs for my mobile DJ system. They are perfect for use in larger venues and take up little space. They are very easy to set up and the casters make it easy to transport. The sound is clean, warm, tight, deep and loud.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Best sub that I have heard yet, I set it up to do a sound test and before the sub even clipped, I was rattling the neighbor's windows over 40 feet away. Good sound, I bought one waiting more cash to get a next one great seller fast shipping thanks I would recommend this speaker as the best on the...
Excerpt: We use the KW 181 for both live sound and DJ entertainment. I have 6 of these in my system, 4 KW 153's, and 2 KW 151's. A very warm sound with a unique punch. After 35 yrs playing music, these are by far the most user friendly, and best sounding subs I have ever owned.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I have owned this sub for 2 years. I use it about 15 times a year for outdoor live bands. They send plenty of bass, and match well with my QSC HPR153 3-way tops. This sub thumps. It came with a threaded pole for the top, so that a smaller PA speaker can be mounted above.
Summary: I have come to love these subs. I rely on them in my live sound business rvalivesound.com and they have been putting out the bass since day one without missing a beat. I can't imagine working with anything less at this point.
Summary: We just used two of these side-by-side along with four K12's to support a band in an airplane hangar with 1200 people. The band was CRAZY impressed. I stood 200 feet away, and could actually feel my pants vibrating slightly.
Summary: As a mobile DJ who averages nearly 120 events annually, I love my KW181. I've had the first one for a little over three years, and it has a six year factory warranty. I didn't purchase it from Amazon (I have a friend who is a dealer), but since I'm always shopping on Amazon, I wanted to share my...
Summary: A DJ "MUST HAVE"!! If you are a DJ just starting out, resist the temptation to buy one of those $700 active subs out there. Also don't buy the K-SUB for DJ use- it is not enough (learned that the hard way). After approx.
