Optimize your Outdoor Movie Audio – QSC K.2 Series

by Kevin Little

Quality audio is one of the most important considerations to make when planning your outdoor movie event. We’ve covered the importance of power, safety and screen direction in the past — but just how much planning is required in regard to your speakers?

Luckily, there’s not too much to fear. For optimal audio performance, the event ideally needs to take place in an area with lower ambient noise. City traffic, nearby interstates or landscaping equipment can quite easily cut through any sort of cinematic performance.

A set of high-performing speakers and ample elevation is your best bet with this common issue. At Outdoor Movies, we offer (and prefer) QSC’s K.2 series. Each model of QSC K.2 speaker comes equipped with a 2000-watt power module and DMT™ (Directivity-Matched Transition) technology to ensure smooth coverage across the entire listening area – a great benefit in an outdoor setting! We also recommend speaker stands — useful for sending proper audio to the back of your audience, without deafening viewers seated closer to the screen.

With all of our larger systems, we include a quality subwoofer system to provide enhanced bass, and to allow the K.2 series speakers to focus their energy on mid-range and high-range audio reproduction. QSC delivers great tech in that department too! The lightweight, portable, powerful KS112 offers dual 12″ subwoofer drivers and 1000-watt continuous Class D power modules. Expect the same high-end QSC amplifier power and extensive digital signal processing to enhance your entire system’s performance of impressive sound.

Setting aside our utmost confidence in these impressive speakers and subwoofers, we wouldn’t want to limit anyone to one speaker set. The QSC K.2 series is simply the best speaker series for the price, hands-down… But your needs may change over time. Maybe you start with one of our Outdoor Movie Packages, but need larger or most sophisticated speaker systems that reach much wider, open audience spaces.

In such an event, we’re always happy to offer experienced support and offer those larger, more sophisticated systems that can better assist your unique situation. In this business, we’ve done it all!
