HPI5

At First Glance

The HPI5 is a 5" ultra compact, passive professional sound reinforcement loudspeaker. Ideally suited to applications that require an ultra low profile solution. Its small footprint still manages to deliver medium to high output making the HPI5 ideally suited to short\medium throw environments.The HPI5 is optimized for high vocal range intelligibility as a small PA system, or as a fill\delay loudspeaker in larger indoor or outdoor systems.

A full-range system can be created with the addition of an optional subwoofer (HPI12S). The HPI5 high frequency section comprises a proprietary 3/4 inch horn driver matched to a custom designed symmetrical wide dispersion constant-directivity high frequency horn. The sound signature of the HPI5 has been created in line with the entire range of Quest HPI systems making it the perfect companion to a larger system eliminating the need for extensive correction or a dedicated system processor.

An Inside Look

Good things definitely come in small packages and the HPI5 is no exception. The HPI5 is the culmination of three years of combined research and development by a design team determined to release a loudspeaker product that would be an uncontested class leader in power, performance and functionality.

Like all things Quest, our vision was to create a product that embodied our core beliefs:, performance, practicality, value and reliability. The HPI5 is the culmination of these efforts in our smallest form factor to date.

Intelligent Vocal, Musical Clarity

The innovative wide dispersion symmetrical horn flare ensures exceptional throw of mid-high frequencies delivering naturally coherent vocal with projection far superior to any other speaker in its class. Musical reproduction is also impressive with the ultra high powered 5” woofer providing astonishing low end performance all the way down to 75Hz.

High Power, Small Footprint

Weighing in at less than 6.5kg and under 25cm, the HPI5 is easy to underestimate from the onset. Cleverly designed using the latest in high power compact driver technology, the HPI5's custom designed 5" high tech woofer and 1" coherent phase compression driver create the best in performance, size and balance.

Pro Portable or Fixed Installation

With three standard 1/4" BSW microphone mounting points: one on either side and one on the base, the HPI5 can be used in a myriad of ways. When connecting directly to a standard microphone stand either vertically or horizontally, the unit becomes a powerful portable PA. By employing the use of the WBHPIU bracket, the HPI5 can be installed either from ceilings, walls or even used as a desktop unit. Standard speaker pole mounting is also possible with an adaptor.

Clean Lines, Subtle Design

The HPI5 is a loudspeaker, not a neon light. We wanted to create a subtle speaker that blends into the background without drawing undue attention to itself. With a clean black finish and low profile outlined branding along the side grill, the HPI5 blends into the background making for discrete installation.

Wooden Body, Steel Faced

The HPI5 chassis is made of the same heavy duty birch ply wood as our hard working and industry trusted Q-Motion systems. Finished with an extremely resilient black coating then fitted with a wrap-around heavy gauge protective steel grille, the HPI5 has been crafted to endure even the most demanding environments; and built to last.

Compact Bass, Perfect Partner

The HPI12S is an ultra compact single 12" sub that has been designed specifically for use with the HPI5. This 500W sub boasts a wide 42Hz - 250Hz frequency response delivering punchy LF to a HPI5 stereo or distributed system. Its internal rigging points have been designed to allow for unobtrusive ceiling installations and its 35mm top hat provides simple pole mounting for the HPI5.

Power Me Up

The QM1000P sub\satellite system from Quest is a convenient match for a paired HPI5 and HPI12S system. This left, right, sub channel amplifier provides a convenient solution for boutique installations where multiple amplifier/crossover combinations would be impractical.
