Concept 5.1 Plus Home Cinema Pack
- With Q Acoustics' new 'Q B12 Subwoofer' and 'Concept 5.0' Cinema Package, movie lovers can now experience soundtracks and dialogue with the same unparalleled sonic clarity that audiophiles enjoy from their award-winning Concept stereo models.
- The outstanding level of performance is achieved because the 'Concept' models incorporate 'Gelcore Construction' loudspeaker cabinets. This ground breaking technology, developed by Q Acoustics, almost totally eliminates loudspeaker cabinet resonance - a major factor limiting the sonic performance of modern loudspeakers.
- No Hollywood blockbuster soundtrack features explosions too loud, too deep or too powerful for Concept 5.1 Plus Home Cinema Speaker System to handle.
- Gloss Black and Gloss White finishes complete the look of your living room and give you the best cinema sound experience.
Our Concept Cinema is a 5.1 sound system consisting of a Concept Center and pair of Concept 40 floorstanding speakers across the front, Concept 20 bookshelf speakers at the rear for sound balance with the powerful Q B12 Subwoofer. Iron-fist punch meets velvet-glove control in Q B12 subwoofer - it’s the subwoofer your audio set-up deserves. The first Q Acoustics subwoofer to feature a 12" driver brings all of the depth and drive your home cinema system craves, along with all the detail and subtlety your music needs.
The Concept 5.1 home cinema sound system’s speakers are beautifully finished and designed for music and movie lovers. Extra comparable channels can be added to provide 7.1 or Atmos and DTS:X formats.
Concept 40 Floorstanding Speaker
The Concept 40 is Q Acoustics’ flagship floorstanding speaker. It is the latest addition of the acclaimed, award winning Concept range and, like so many Q Acoustics models, delivers an unparalleled sonic performance at its price. We firmly believe the Concept 40 speakers sets new standards, even outperforming many speakers in higher price brackets.
In common with the Concept 20, its award-winning ‘little brother’, the new Concept 40’s extraordinary soundstage, dynamics and sheer musicality is achieved by incorporating its bespoke drive units into a ‘Gelcore™ Construction’ cabinet. This State-of-the-Art, ultra-low resonance and beautifully lacquered cabinet design allows the drive units to perform at their very impressive best.
The low distortion drive units incorporate powerful oversized magnets to ensure wide dynamics and an ultra-fast transient response. The elegant tripod stand allows the Concept 40 to achieve perfect rigidity and floor contact which further enhances its performance.
With 90dB sensitivity and a nominal impedance of 8 ohms, the Concept 40 is easily driven by any good quality amplifier. This striking floorstanding loudspeaker is available in either high gloss black, or high gloss white finishes.
Concept 20 Bookshelf Speaker
The beautifully finished, compact and eminently affordable Concept 20 loudspeaker is designed for music lovers who wish to enjoy performances at their very highest quality. The Concept 20 changes everything. Their revolutionary ‘Gelcore™ Construction’ incorporated into their design means, for the very first time, music lovers can enjoy genuine ‘high end’ sonic performance at a very affordable price.
The astonishing ability of the Concept 20 is best revealed when the loudspeakers are used in conjunction with the matching Concept 20 Speaker Stands which, to optimise performance, boasts a Gelcore™ layer in its top plate. This is both visually striking and is resonance-free to optimise sonic performance. With the option of either lacquered gloss black, or lacquered gloss white, not only will they sound amazing, but will also look great. Their versatile design means they are also at home on furniture, bookshelves or suitable wall brackets. Wherever you decide to place them, they will deliver an amazing experience that many of those with a higher price range struggle to reach.
Concept Center Channel Speaker
At the heart of any home cinema system is the Center channel, handling the difficult dialogue and often much more. The Concept Center is a precisely optimized implementation of the Gelcore™ cabinet technology used in the Concept 20 and 40, in order to bring the highest quality performance from this key Home Cinema component. This ultra-low resonance and beautifully lacquered cabinet design with magnetic grille allows the dual 105mm drive units and wide dispersion 25mm tweeter to perform at their very articulate best.
The Concept Center uses Gelcore™ Cabinet Construction, where two layers of MDF, are separated by a bespoke, resonance absorbing, non-setting adhesive, which converts the kinetic energy and disperses it as heat. This substantially reduces distortion and allows the individual drive units to deliver their optimal performance; a pure and uncolored sound.
The Concept Center is easily driven by any good quality amplifier, providing effortless peaks and crescendos in music and movies soundtracks. Alternative locations for positioning the speaker in the listening room are catered for by providing a foam bung which can be inserted in the rear-mounted reflex port modifying the bass response to suit positioning against a rear wall or in AV furniture.
Q B12 Subwoofer
220 watts of Class D power driving a long-throw 12inch drive unit sounds like a recipe for action. And that’s exactly what it is - no Hollywood blockbuster soundtrack features explosions too loud, too deep or too powerful for Q B12 to handle. But power is nothing without control, and Q B12 is just as comfortable describing the nuances of a double bass or an electronic kick-drum.
Technology behind the scenes - Designed to integrate seamlessly – Strength and Control
Q B12 subwoofer’s sealed, ‘infinite baffle’ cabinet is cleverly braced to deliver maximum stiffness to its motor system and, as a consequence, minimum influence on those deep bass sounds.
Incorporating a 'cabinet within a cabinet' design, its inner and outer enclosures are bound together by a bespoke adhesive which never quite sets. This configuration (known as Gelcore™ construction) allows the kinetic energy generated by the drive units within the cabinet to be dispersed as heat and preventing them colouring and degrading the speaker's musical output.
