The story of QSC Audio is one of professional audio's most inspiring tales. From its humble beginnings crafting handmade guitar amps from a one-room shop in Orange County, California, QSC has grown to become the industry's undisputed leader in power amps, loudspeakers, and complete networked audio solutions.
QSC’s story began one day in 1968, when Barry Andrew's motorcycle broke down in an industrial park in Costa Mesa, California. While waiting for a friend to pick him up, Barry struck up a conversation with a guy working in a nearby garage. Pat Quilter told Barry about his fledgling business, designing and building various types of amplifiers.
In the heyday of Hendrix, Cream and acid rock, Pat's best opportunities seemed to lie with the growing market of local guitar and bass players, and Barry's experience in building speaker cabinets looked to be a natural fit. Working out of a cramped 800-square-foot shop, the two men joined forces, determined to change the world with products like the Quilter Sound Thing and the Duck Amp. Managing to strategically place their QSC amps at prominent clubs on Sunset Strip, they won praise (but little else) from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Cream, The Doors and other bands of the day.
Over the following decades new markets emerged and QSC diversified from being an amplifier company into to a pro audio powerhouse, creating many industry-changing technologies. Today, QSC still manufactures in Costa Mesa, California, with an 81,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility.
