Q-SYS NL Series network PoE loudspeakers deliver clear speech and music reproduction to the modern collaboration space. As native Q-SYS Products, the NL Series help enable true end-to-end network-based audio, video and control solutions driven by the Q-SYS OS. NL Series network loudspeakers integrate into your space with a single Ethernet cable to reduce the overall hardware footprint and lower system cost. They are available in three form factors (speakerbar, pendant mount and ceiling mount) to enable a wide range of room types, and take full advantage of the drag-and-drop integration and simple control capabilities offered by Q-SYS.

  • The right loudspeaker for your space: The Q-SYS NL-SB42 is a 3.5-inch, two-way soundbar, while the Q-SYS NL-P4 is a 4-inch pendant-mount loudspeaker for open ceiling installations, and the Q-SYS NL-C4 is a 4-inch ceiling-mount loudspeaker. All NL Series loudspeakers are designed for low distortion to improve system level AEC performance and optimize audio intelligibility.

  • Mix and Match: NL Series network loudspeakers are built on the same design principles as the Q-SYS AcousticDesign™ Series, featuring a sleek, unobtrusive design along with the same sonic characteristics that allow integrators to mix-and-match form factors to fit the unique needs of any space.
  • Go easy: NL Series network loudspeakers are powered-over-Ethernet (PoE), which means native Q-SYS audio data, power and control and are delivered over a single cable, greatly simplifying installation and deployment while reducing rack space requirement.

  • Intrinsic Correction: To simplify the tuning process, Q-SYS automatically integrates loudspeaker voicing for NL Series loudspeakers.
  • Q-SYS Call Sync: Automatically sync onboard controls and LED status indicators on select Q-SYS devices (NM-T1 microphone, TSC Series Gen 3 touchscreens & NL-SB42 PoE speakerbar) keeping the state of all in-room endpoints in sync with connected UC platforms.
  • Remote Monitoring and Management: NL Series network loudspeakers are the first loudspeakers that can be automatically monitored and managed by Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager every step of the way, from the audio source all the way through the loudspeaker driver.
  • Designed for Q-SYS: NL Series integrate seamlessly into Q-SYS, a cloud-manageable audio, video, and control platform, built to deliver flexible, scalable AV solutions well into the future. Learn more about Q-SYS.
