Maybe, you'll need to check the specs on the QSC poles.  The ones that come with the KW181 have an M20 threaded bolt on the bottom for the sub and a 35mm pole end for the top speaker.  The ones with the HPR181 have a plain pole with two 35mm ends.

yes they will but the height is quite frankly terrible, I would recommend something that extends, either from K&M, or onstage just came out with a more inexpensive option.

You can find the K&M adjustable height (which is I believe the same unit JBL rebrands) poles for significantly less than $110, and having the extra height is very handy.

OnStage has been claiming they have a pole to fit the JBL models with the M20 thread at a street price of under $30.00. I've been waiting since before Thanksgiving for them to be released. Until then, I will just keep using tripods.

Has anyone heard what the delay is in them releasing this pole? The  K&M rebranded JBL price seems a bit crazy.

I use my Adam Hall poles for my JBL SRX subs and my QSC K-subs. They are adjustable and were really inexpensive. Amazon sell them. Been using them for 2 years no problems....

I just saw that K&M has the hand crank poles, either with M20 thread or just a 35mm bottom.
