The AD-P.HALO is an integrated SUB/SAT pendant loudspeaker system
QSC has added to its AcousticDesign Series with the AD-P.HALO, an integrated SUB/SAT pendant loudspeaker system featuring an integrated 6.5-inch subwoofer and four 2.75-inch transducers in a single enclosure. At 200W RMS, the AD-P.HALO offers significant dynamic headroom that is said to surpass the background music performance of traditional two-way pendant-mount speakers. Users can integrate AD-P.HALO alongside any number of AcousticDesign loudspeakers (ceiling-mount, pendant-mount or surface-mount).
The system is ‘ready to install right out of the box’, reducing installation time and labour costs. In addition, by using Q-Sys network amplifiers or QSC DSP-enabled amplifiers, integrators can take advantage of QSC’s Intrinsic Correction proprietary voicing algorithm for QSC loudspeakers, which reportedly helps to further reduce the set up time and tuning process.
‘Our extensive conversations with integrators revealed common struggles associated with other pendant loudspeaker systems in this class,’ said Travis Nie, product manager, installed loudspeakers at QSC. ‘With the quality of the AcousticDesign Series, we knew we could deliver a rich sonic timbre needed for foreground atmospheres, an ability often lacking in traditional pendant loudspeakers. We also needed to eliminate the frustration spawned by excessive assembly times, which can take 30–40 minutes or more for each loudspeaker. The AD-P.HALO delivers on both promises with an all-in-one system that takes minutes to install.’
