PDFQW 215 Specifications (pdf)

The QW 215 combines two new high power Pro Rider 15" woofers with a new compact trapezoidal cabinet design. The QW 215 is a direct radiator woofer designed specifically for the high end pro-audio user. When used in conjunction with the QW 1 and QW 218 in a four-way application, the sound pressure levels can reach SPLs of 140 dB continuous. The power handling of this system in four-way applications approaches 6800 Watts program.

The new Pro Rider 15" driver is a milestone in high power subwoofer design. Its incredible 2400 Watt program rating and extra-long cone excursion produce amazing new levels of clean, deep bass, making the QW 215 a superioir choice for the bottom end of any high powered sound system.

The QW 215 trapezoid enclosure is unusually compact for its power handling, SPL output, distortion performance and bass extension. This is made possible by special characteristics designed into the Pro Rider woofer.

The QW 215 is well braced, as internal pressures produced by the Pro Rider woofer can be very high. A special vent design integrated into the enclosure includes a vertical brace to further increase enclosure strength.

The QW 215’s large vent area and long path length allow for a large volume of air to move with very low resistance. This is important due to the huge volumes of air flow that the Pro Rider woofer can produce.

The QW 215 is constructed of premium .720" plywood and covered with a tough, durable black Hammer Head™ polyurea coating, making this enclosure rugged and very road-worthy. A 16-gauge powder-coated, perforated metal grille covers the front of the system to protect the speakers from external damage.

Inputs include two four-pin Neutrik jacks in parallel; an eight-pin Neutrik; and a four-pin Neutrik thru jack for bi-amping flexibility while maintaining superior signal integrity. A standard four-pin Neutrik jack in parallel allows for simple daisy-chaining to another cabinet when bi-amping.

Despite its compact dimensions, this system can output extremely high sound levels and receive 2400 Watts program of clean amplifier power, resulting in large area coverage with excellent punch and high reliability.
