"Crystal clear, really loud, and I couldn't believe the amount of sound that was coming out of these 10-inch speakers - without feedback. If you had told me that this was going to be the sound, I wouldn't have believed you."

"I hear exactly what the mic sounds like. It's not colored by the loudspeaker."

"They're so robust sounding that you'd think that they weighed two to three times as much."

Interview

QSC: Steve, what are you doing here in New York?

Steve: I’m  here at Germano Studios on Broadway where I do a lot of work. It’s a fantastic facility, it has two wonderful rooms, amazing monitor system, great outboard gear…it’s a great studio

QSC: Let’s talk a little bit about the K10’s you’ve been using. What do you think about the sound?

Steve: When we first took them home, Meegan Voss and I threw our Telefunken M80’s into them and the sound was absolutely phenomenal. Crystal clear, really loud, and I couldn’t believe the amount of sound that was coming out of these 10-inch speakers - without feedback. Really controlled, punchy, clear. I was shocked, I was absolutely shocked. If you had told me that this was going to be the sound, I wouldn’t have believed you.

QSC: A lot of speakers are known for having certain sonic characteristics. What would you say is the “sound” of the K Series?

Steve: I haven’t used a ton of different mics yet, but what I have noticed so far is that you get the sound of the mic you’re using. So, for instance, with the Telefunken M80, I hear exactly what the mic sounds like. It’s not colored by the loudspeaker. I actually know more about what this mic sounds now by using this speaker.

QSC: How about power?

Steve: If I had gotten it any louder, it would have been dangerous. No clipping. I’ve not yet used full power on it but it’s been absolutely fantastic.

QSC: Like many musicians, you’re a city dweller. How do you feel about the speaker’s portability?

Steve: The portability is really quite amazing. The other thing is, to get the sound that I’m looking for I would normally use at least a 12-inch wedge. So now to be able to use 10-inch wedges is quite different for me because I would never have been able to do that before. They’re so robust sounding that you’d think that they weighed two to three times as much.
