Full Description

Building upon the success of its predecessor, the 3020i speakers boast 5-inch and 0.9-inch precision drivers that deliver deep bass and room-filling sound. They utilize Point-to-Point™ (P2P) bracing to improve focus of the stereo image, have slightly taller and deeper cabinets that allow an extended low-frequency response from the ported design, and a high-frequency driver unit with the tweeters decoupled from the baffles. With all the technological advancements, Q hasn’t forgotten about the required aesthetic upgrades. The speakers have beautiful chrome bezels around each driver and magnetic speaker grills.

Every good speaker needs a quality cable to drive that beautiful sound we all crave, which is why we’ve included our multi award-winning XT40 cable. With X-Tube™ technology, this pure copper cable is able to combat the skin effect and deliver stunning detail. It also has a 4mm, 2 cross-sectional area, which results in a cable that delivers clear sonic advantages over conventional designs. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty, so you can enjoy your music or movies for years to come.

Bigger, Bolder Sound From The Q 3020i

The Q 3020i  builds on the success of its multi award winning predecessor. Boasting 125mm (5 in) and 22mm (0.9 in) precision drivers, the Q 3020i speakers deliver deep bass and room-filling sound. The Q 3020i maintain the same acoustically optimal front profile but have been made slightly taller and deeper giving an overall cabinet size increase of 25%. This increased internal volume has enabled the Q 3020i to gain an extended low frequency response from the ported design so that more-than-ever the smaller enclosures in the range belie their diminutive stature with an impressively large-scale sound.

The Q 3020i speakers can be shelf-mounted on compliant, pre-fitted rubber feet, stand-mounted or wall-mounted on optional, dedicated stands and brackets ensuring the Q 3020i fit seamlessly and fill your chosen listening room with bold, beautiful sound.

Leading Technology Ensuring The Most Open Soundstage

The Q 3020i  boasts P2P™ (Point to Point) bracing which supports the parts of the enclosure that need to be stiffened making the new enclosures exceptionally rigid, improving the focus of the stereo image and giving the soundstage more accuracy than ever before (* entire series ). With the addition of a brand new mid/bass driver and a high frequency driver unit with the tweeters decoupled from the baffles, which allows the tweeter to perform with dramatically reduced interference, the Q 3020i is a true testament of the technological enhancements the entire series has seen to make it our most special yet.

High-Frequency Driver Unit

3000i Series tweeters are decoupled from the baffle via a compliant suspension system. Vibrations from the woofer, which can impair the performance of the tweeter are isolated allowing the tweeter to perform with dramatically reduced interference.

Mid/Bass Driver

Whichever 3000i model you choose the cone is precision formed from impregnated and coated paper and teamed with a newly developed, low-hysteresis, rubber surround. The coated paper cone provides the optimum balance between stiffness and self- damping which means it can accelerate without flexing and stop very accurately without unwanted resonances.

New Low Profile Binding Posts For Easy Room Positioning

Conventional terminal panel cut-outs have been removed, giving greatly improved structural integrity to the enclosures and new low profile binding posts have been incorporated with sockets deep enough to accept 4mm (0.16 in) Banana Plugs. The speaker can be positioned very close to a rear wall even when banana plugs rather than spades or bare wires are used.

Beautiful Inside And Out

Not only does the entire 3000i range features all new enclosure aesthetics but it also offers 4 new contemporary finishes. The new 3000i series speakers are available in four standard finishes; Graphite Grey, English Walnut, Carbon Black or Arctic White. All are finished with an attractive chrome bezel around each driver and feature magnetic speaker grilles.
