Part of the WideLine-8 line array system, the WL3082 from QSC is an 8” wide line array speaker. Boasting multiple mounting, stacking, and suspension options, the WL3082 is ideal for installed and portable applications that need professional audio performance but are tight on space.

More about QSC’s WideLine-8 System

Boasting the WideLine family’s signature wide coverage, the Wideline-8 system packs full-size line array performance into a compact design. Line array speaker systems are becoming more prevalent in an ever-expanding range of applications of all shapes and sizes. WL-8 is QSC’s solution for spaces that need big audio input in a small footprint—all while delivering professional sound worthy of demanding concert and installation setups.

Experience a broad stereo image that reduces the number of speakers you need to fill your space with awesome audio and gives you more flexibility in speaker placement. The waveguide exits of each WL-8 model extend nearly to the top and bottom of the speaker enclosure, creating a continuous acoustical source while minimizing discontinuities between adjacent elements resulting in greatly reduced destructive interaction.

Another premium feature of the WL-8 series is its pristine and expansive frequency coverage. Each tri-amplified speaker element uses two high-power 8" low-frequency drivers with neodymium magnets. Both drivers cover low frequency, while only one extends into the mid-range, thus maintaining horizontal dispersion control at crossover. Meanwhile, high frequencies are handled by a premium, 3" diaphragm neodymium compression driver mounted to a 140º multiple aperture diffraction waveguide.
