Having built our reputation in professional amplifiers, our line of HPR powered speakers had to exceed expectations. Like exceptional sound quality. Legendary reliability. And clear, dazzling sound even when driven to their limits. Sound that can only come from powered speakers built with QSC professional amps. Now, turn that speaker around. And turn up the volume.

Be Featured in Mix!
Attention, engineers: Mix is working on a feature on radical recording, and we want to hear from you! Our studio stories have covered the bizarre and unusual, from recording drummers whacking glass bottles instead of the kit (Bruce Swedien recording Michael Jackson) to dousing the vocal mic with lighter fluid and setting it on fire (Dave Sardy with Marilyn Manson), but we know there are plenty of "best kept secrets" out there...Send us your wildest recording technique! The most extreme (printable!) submissions will be featured in our February issue. E-mail -- photos welcome!
