    Yamaha DSR112 and QSC KW122 comparability

    Hello all,

    I have a single Yamaha DSR112 and have been looking for another at a reasonable price. I havenít had any luck finding one -market is scarce. The few that Iíve seen are at least $900 each. Iím very fond of the DSR112. Can I pair it with a QSC KW122? Iíve seen a video that said the two cabinets compliment each other well when the DSP is engaged in the Yamaha.

    What are you allís thoughts and suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Que Yi

    The SPL specs for the QSCs are badly overstated.. they admitted this when the new K.2 series was released, so there wouldn't be much point IMO. The DSR gets a LOT louder.. I wouldn't be surprised if it would outrun a pair of KWs. Keep looking for another Yamaha.

    Two different animals altogether.... The DSR112 does not do well full range, as they have very little response below 80hz. The KW does much better used full range. However, pair the DSR112 with a sub or two (and hi-pass it) and it will outrun the KW.

    Thanks Al,

    I am planning to pair the tops with subs. Iím just trying to get something as close to the DSR without breaking the bank
