Q ACOUSTICS CONCEPT 30, CONCEPT 50 AND CONCEPT 90 HIFI AND HOME CINEMA SPEAKERS LAUNCHED

 Q Acoustics has launched the new Q AcousticsConcept 30 standmount, Concept 50 floorstander and Concept 90 centre channel loudspeakers.

Q ACOUSTICS GELCORE

Introduced in the original Q Acoustics Concept speaker, the Gelcore™ cabinet construction is designed to minimise high-frequency noise. It is a design comprised of a non-setting gel sandwiched between two individual layers, this specially developed adhesive dissipates high-frequency vibrations, generated by the moving drivers, into heat to maintain a focused audio performance.

P2P BRACING

To keep the cabinet as rigid as possible, Point-2-Point™ (P2P) internal bracing is employed. First introduced in the Concept 500, reinforcement is fitted to interior areas of the cabinet susceptible to low-end frequency reverberations.

Q ACOUSTICS CONCEPT ISOLATION BASE

A variation on the ‘isolation base’ principle first seen on Concept 300 means all three of the new Concept models have a suspension system in the form of a sprung baseplate. Two plates are separated by suspension ‘spheres’ that effectively isolates the cabinet from interference from external vibrations.

HPE TUBES

Tall floorstanding speakers can be prone to an internal build-up of pressure that causes unwanted standing waves and reverberations. To prevent this from occurring, specially designed Helmholtz Pressure Equalisers (HPE™) tubes are fitted inside the Concept 50’s cabinet to improve frequency response.

Q ACOUSTICS CONCEPT DRIVERS

Designed as an integral part of the mechanical structure of the cabinet, both the 5-inch mid/bass and 0.9-inch tweeter drivers are new, ground-up designs specifically for the Concept 30, 50 and 90 loudspeakers. The drive units are fixed to a remarkably stiff 3mm aluminium baffle plate before it is fitted to the cabinet – this gives the correct acoustic seal, dampening vibrations and minimising structural coupling. Elsewhere, the tweeter is hermetically sealed and mechanically isolated (floating) from the baffle, which means lower distortion and a lower crossover point for integration through the crossover region. At 30.5mm, the larger mid/bass driver voice coil increases motor strength resulting in a 50% increase in power handling over a comparable driver with 25.4 mm voice coil.

Lastly, the crossover itself is mounted to the isolation base, keeping it free of sound-effecting vibrations and away from the electro-magnetic influence of the drivers themselves.

Featuring the same design lines and high gloss finish of the 300 and 500 models, the new range retains the signature aluminium front baffle plate. All models arrive in three lacquers: black, silver and white.

Q ACOUSTICS CONCEPT HOME CINEMA

The Concept 50 5.1 speaker package is comprised of a pair of Concept 50 floorstanders at the front, a pair of Concept 30 standmounts positioned at the rear, with a Concept 90 centre channel focused on dialogue. Finally, Q Acoustics most powerful subwoofer, the Q B12, provides the low-end sonics. The Concept series is designed to work in any 2.1 or 5.1 configurations should you decide to add the Concept 90 centre channel and Q B12 subwoofer to any of the range’s floorstanding or standmount models (choose from the 30, 50, 300 or 500.)
