Superior quality and long lasting reliability

The QSC CP8 8″ compact powered loudspeaker for portable sound has the quality, reliability, and performance consistent with the tradition of QSC products. To complement these qualities, QSC built this rugged line of CP (Compact Portable) powered speakers to be lightweight and affordable. The CP8 has an 8" inch LF driver and uses a Class-D, 1,000-watt peak amp with a 90° coverage. Stylish yet unobtrusive, the cabinet is constructed of rugged polypropylene, and with its remarkable light-weight design, it is easy to lift, load and set-up for a wide variety of portable and installed applications. Speaking to this versatility and thoughtful design, the 8” compact portable powered loudspeaker has an angled side for floor monitoring, a pole mount socket, a front molded carry point, and an optional quick-connect yoke mount.


  • 1000 W Class D amplifier
  • Advanced DSP with Intrinsic Correction™ for superior sound quality and speaker protection
  • Light weight and highly portable
  • Directivity Matched Transition™ (DMT) for consistent frequency response across the entire coverage area
  • Use for main PA, stage monitor, or instrument amplifier
