Q Acoustics Concept 5.1 Home Cinema Speaker Pack

About Q Acoustics:

  • Q Acoustics is a multi-award winning hi-fi brand, which was founded by experts in the audio industry with the sole aim of developing a highly successful loudspeaker brand.
  • It has been 10 years since Q Acoustics was founded, and in every year since we have continued to drive innovation and develop multi-award winning products.

Q Acoustics Story

  • Q Acoustics is not like most other loudspeaker companies.
  • Q Acoustics is a young brand. No heritage. No tradition. No old black and white photographs. We believe that to be the secret of our success.
  • Q Acoustics was established in 2006; but not by a wealthy music lover, hobbyist designer or retired rock musician.
  • No. Q Acoustics was founded by professional engineers and businessmen whose sole aim was to develop a highly successful best in class loudspeaker brand based on outstanding audio performance.
  • It’s that simple, a completely focussed understanding of acoustic engineering and inspirational design has driven our remarkable success.
  • We recognised that the only way Q Acoustics could possibly enjoy commercial success was to design and produce loudspeaker products that were, without question, superior to their similarly priced competitors.
  • So, with that aim in mind, for the last ten years with have enabled audiophiles around the world to enjoy Q Acoustics for its innovative and high performance loudspeakers.

Feature

Feature of Concept Cinema Pack

A Result Even Greater Than the Sum of the Parts

  • A Concept Cinema is a 5.1 format consisting of a Concept Centre and pair of Concept 40s across the front, Concept 20s at the rear to match perfectly for looks and sound balance, the powerful 2070Si Subwoofer.
  • Extra comparable channels can be added to provide 7.1 or Atmos and DTS:X formats.

Ultra-Low Resonance Cabinet Design

  • The five speakers in the Concept Cinema use GelcoreTM 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 cinema sound experience.

Simple to Drive, Simple to Position

  • AV receivers have a difficult task sending sufficient energy to multiple channels simultaneously, especially with the challenging soundtracks of blockbuster movies.
  • The Concept Cinema components have sensitivity and impedance characteristic making them particularly easily driven by any good quality amplifier.
  • 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 close to a corner.

 Accessories for Wall Mounting and Atmos

  • Concept 20 and Concept Centre can be wall mounted using Q Acoustics' elegant 'floating' glass shelf, the CENTRE GLASS WALL SUPPORT and SPEAKER GLASS WALL SUPPORTS.
  • For the overhead channels in an Atmos or DTS:X installation, the Q Acoustics INSTALL range offers a number of compatible options.
  • We would particularly recommend the Q INSTALL PERFORMANCE range.

Feature Of Concept 40

Conceptualising the Floorstanding Speaker

  • In common with the Concept 20, its award-winning sibling, the Concept 40's extraordinary soundstage, dynamics and sheer musicality is achieved by incorporating its bespoke drive units into a GelcoreTM Construction cabinet.
  • This State-of-the-Art, ultra-low resonance and beautifully lacquered cabinet design allows the dual 125mm drive units and wide dispersion 25mm tweeter to perform at their very impressive best.
  • The combination of high sensitivity for dynamics and increased bass extension for realism make the step up from bookshelf speakers, worthwhile.

Ultra-Low Resonance Cabinet Design

  • The Concept 40 uses GelcoreTM 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.

Simple to Drive, Simple to Position

  • With 90dB sensitivity and a nominal impedance of 8 ohms, the Concept 40 is easily driven by any good quality amplifier, providing effortless peaks and crescendos in music and movie soundtracks.
  • Various 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 close to a corner.

Stunning to Hear, Stunning to See

  • These striking floorstanding loudspeakers are available in multi-layered lacquered black or white finishes.
  • The elegant tripod stand allows the Concept 40 to achieve perfect rigidity and floor contact, which further enhances its performance.
  • Even the speaker's attractive brushed aluminium facia plate is not purely decorative.
  • It's part of an assembly, which clamps a butyl rubber sheet to the front panel to reduce cabinet resonance still further in the panel facing the listener.

Feature Of Concept Center

Centre of Excellence

  • At the heart of any home cinema system is the Centre Channel, handling the difficult dialogue and often much more besides.
  • The Concept Centre is a precisely optimised implementation of the GelcoreTM 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.

Feature Of Concept 20

An Innovative Solution

  • The Concept 20 represents the start of a new era going beyond anything that Q Acoustics had achieved before.
  • It's a beautifully styled product, which we confidently believe provides a level of sonic performance previously thought impossible at its price point.
  • To achieve this extraordinary result, Q Acoustics' design team applied advanced technology to address cabinet resonance, widely recognised as the single biggest hurdle preventing 'high end' sonic performance.
  • This State-of-the-Art, ultra-low resonance and beautifully lacquered cabinet design allows the 125mm drive unit and wide dispersion 25mm tweeter to perform at their very impressive best.

  • It’s part of an assembly, which clamps a butyl rubber sheet to the front panel to reduce cabinet resonance still further in the panel facing the listener.
  • It is available in two beautiful multi-layered lacquered finishes in high gloss black and white.
  • Multiple positions are possible thanks to 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 close to a corner, to fit seamlessly into your chosen room.

Critically Acclaimed by Industry Experts

  • These clever bookshelf speakers have won multiple awards including What Hi Fi - Product of the Year, Hi Fi Choice - Editors Choice and AV Forums - Highly Recommended Award demonstrating that these speakers deliver genuine 'high end' sonic performance.

Feature Of Concept Q2070si

  • Unusually at its price level, the Model 2070Si subwoofer is a completely DSP (Digital Signal Processing) driven system with highly efficient class D amplification.
  • However this has meant we have been able to achieve an advanced level of functionality, as well as optimising the sonic performance, by undertaking all filtering and limiting completely in the digital domain.
  • An example is the Speaker Type function switch, which alters the characteristic of the subwoofer's frequency response at the crossover point.
  • This allows the subwoofer to be optimised for use with either ported speakers, like the rest of the Q Acoustics range, or infinite baffle models.
