Two-way point source loudspeakers with directivity control

View of the PL-DC Series Family including the PL-DC24, PL-DC26, PL-DC8, PL-DC12

The Q-SYS PL-DC family is composed of two-way, passive point source loudspeakers with directivity control that deliver premium sound for a broad range of venue types in entertainment, hospitality, corporate, and higher ed applications. Available in four sizes (dual-4-inch, dual-6-inch, 8-inch, and 12-inch), all the PL-DC models can act as stage fills or delays, while the smaller models can be placed under balconies to fill in lost coverage and the larger models can be part of distributed systems. Additionally, the dual-4-inch model offers a fixed 120°x50° horn while the three larger models offer a reconfigurable horn, enabling more control over where sound needs to be heard. PL Series performance loudspeakers pair a rich legacy of high-performance audio with the power and flexibility of Q-SYS to extend an integrated audio, video, and control experience to your front-of-house applications.


  • Four sizes available for optimal flexibility
  • PL-DC26, PL-DC8, and PL-DC12 include reconfigurable horn for better control over sound coverage

  • Deliver the Right System for your Customers: PL Series loudspeakers provide an abundance of options to ensure the right loudspeaker solution anywhere in the venue that requires higher performance audio.
