Concept Series

Gelcore™ Technology

The Concept Series has been developed using Gelcore™; a never-setting gel between cabinet layers, which minimises cabinet resonance for a purer, more uncoloured sound.

The 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 uncoloured sound.

Dual GelcoreTM

The Concept 500 speaker cabinet is constructed in three separate layers. The gaps between the layers are completely filled under pressure with a compliant form of non-setting gel.

The two constrained layers effectively damp the walls of the speaker cabinet by converting higher frequency vibrations into heat, which is then dissipated harmlessly within the damping gel.

The graph (below) shows how the cabinet performs in the mid-band frequency area from 500Hz to 2kHz. The blue line shows the amount of unwanted sound energy produced by the wall of a conventional loudspeaker cabinet.

Any erroneous boost or cut in level at this frequency can affect the perception of musical timbre and contribute to listener fatigue. You can see from the trace of the red line how the addition of Dual Gelcore™ technology significantly reduces the ability of the speaker cabinet to interfere with the accurate reproduction of the source material.

Media Range

180 Degree Speaker Technology

With traditional speakers, listeners are on a mission to find the 'sweet spot'; the exact listening position where the sound is at its very best in the room. With Q Acoustics 180 degree sound technology, the whole room is a 'sweet spot'.

Using BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) driver units, not only do they deliver superior sonic performance but disperse the sound 180 degrees across the room. Wherever you sit in your room, you'll still enjoy the optimal hi-fi or home cinema experience.

MoviEQ

MoviEQ

MoviEQ control which has been designed to enhance movie sounds tracks, adding more bass; your home will rumble with powerful bass for that full blooded movie experience.

To ensure the sound truly matches the picture up to 50ms of Lip Sync adjustment is available, which is adjustable in 10ms steps.

Bluetooth aptX™ & NFC

Bluetooth aptX™ & NFC

All Q Acoustics Media products are Bluetooth aptX™ and NFC enabled, providing full connectivity and streaming flexibility from any Bluetooth or NFC device.

3000 Series

Optimized Crossover

All passive models boast a fourth order Linkwitz-Butterworth crossover.

This design is chosen because it minimises phasing errors at the crossover frequencies. To further reduce distortion, we have introduced even higher quality ‘audiophile’ laminated U-Core’ capacitors to the crossover.

These capacitors substantially reduce the unwanted crosstalk between crossover components.

P2P™*

Q Acoustics P2P™ (Point to Point) bracing across the 3000i series 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.

HPE™**

HPE™ (Helmholtz Pressure Equalizer) technology designed to convert pressure to velocity and reduce the overall pressure gradient within the speaker enclosure, has been applied to the Q 3050i floorstanding speakers to reduce cabinet resonance. This technology is perfect for taller loudspeakers that tend to resonate at a single favoured frequency.

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.

High-Frequency Driver Unit

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.
