PDFQW 1 Specifications (pdf)

The new QW-1 is designed for the top end of a three- or four-way professional high performance sound system. When used in conjunction with the QW-215 and QW-218, in four-way applications, the sound pressure levels of a single four-way can reach SPLs of 140 dB continuous. The power handling of this system in four-way applications approaches 6800 Watts program. Due to its high efficiency drivers, the QW-1 has a rating of 1200 Watts program for the mids, with a 44XT™ rated at 200 Watts program (band limited 1000 Hz to 20 kHz).

The QW’s patented CH®-642qt horn is loaded with the patented 44XT high efficiency compression driver and a BWX 1008-8 HE high powered mid, designed specifically for the QW-1. The horn has a coverage pattern of 60° in the horizontal axis and 40° in the vertical axis.

The QW-1 is designed for arraying in flying applications or stacking on a stage. Twelve mounting points are located on the unit for flying applications. Three flying points are located on the top and bottom, and two points are on the right and left sides and the rear of the enclosure.

The QW-1 is constructed with a special grade of high density ¾" plywood and covered with a black Hammer Head hard coat, a tough finish equivalent to the durable liners used in truck beds today. This finish makes the enclosure very road-worthy, but more importantly the Hammer Head finish helps to dampen resonant modes that may develop. These minor, subtle resonant modes are dampened to help improve the overall sound quality of the system.


  • Two 10" BWX 1008-8 HE woofers with 4" voice coils
  • Patented 44XT™ titanium compression driver, ferrofluid cooled, coupled to a CH®642qt constant directivity horn which employs the patented Quadratic Throat Waveguide™ technology
  • Flexible flying provisions
  • Maximum concert power
  • Designed for professional bi-amp applications
  • Durable Hammer Head™ black polyurea finish
