QTX QR12PA Portable PA System Review

QTX QR12PA Portable PA System Review

Many professionals in the audio industry, from presenters and performers through to fitness instructors, are making the switch to portable PA systems, instead of opting for more traditional public address systems. These battery-powered devices are helping to reduce the reliance on mains supply, and are far less cumbersome and expensive too; all together, this is contributing to improved versatility in the audio industry!

The QRPA Series comes with 10”, 12”, and 15” low-frequency drivers (QR10PA, QR12PA and QR15PA). The PA is essentially an upgraded version of the hugely popular QR active speaker with an integrated mixer, MP3 player, two VHF receivers, and two wireless handheld microphones. A built-in rechargeable battery features, as does a smaller amplifier to save on power consumption.

What audience size is the QR12PA suitable for?

The size of the audience you can use the QR12PA with is dependent on the room layout. Ceiling height, room acoustics, speaker placement, and spacing between audience members all play a part but, as a general rule, the QR12PA will cater to audiences of up to 150 when used with a speaker pole.

Will I be able operate the QR12PA?

The wireless handheld microphones (included) come pre-tuned so there’s no need to worry about adjusting the frequencies which are within the legal range. On the back of the loudspeaker is a small mixer which features several basic controls. Master Volume, Bass and Treble adjustment knobs and individual microphone volumes make for easy basic setup. Also present is a useful Echo feature, ideal for adding a professional touch to vocals.

Can this portable PA be used outdoors?

The rugged design of the QRPA coupled with the ability to run off an internal battery makes it ideal for outdoor use. A protective slip-on cover (sold separately), made from durable water-resistant material, allows for the speaker to be covered during light showers, making it ideal for use in outdoor fitness classes, at traditionally drizzly British BBQ’s, etc.
