Description

Q Acoustics Concept 500 speakers

Founded in 2006, Q Acoustics quickly built a reputation for designing and manufacturing class-leading loudspeakers. Q Acoustics Concept 500 speaker is the culmination of Q Acoustics continual evolution and refinement resulting in what we believe is sonic perfection.

Designed to appeal to discerning audiophiles, the Q Acoustics Concept 500 speakers achieve a perfect balance between art and science. It is a loudspeaker that is at once, stylish, contemporary, fine-sounding and astonishingly accurate. It couples low directivity with wide bandwidth, good sensitivity and sensible impedance. This makes the new Concept 500 both room-friendly and an easy load to drive, allowing amplifiers to deliver their best performance.

To create a stereo soundstage which gives as good an impression of width, depth and height as that found in a live performance requires high quality drive units, a well designed crossover and an accurately constructed cabinet.

To achieve this, Q Acoustics formed a truly talented team with many years of experience in the design, engineering and manufacture of world-class loudspeakers. A combination that resulted in a state-of-the-art loudspeaker worthy of any high-end system.

Key Features

  • The High-end Concept 500 Floorstanding Speakers adopt advanced, innovative technologies to deliver pure audio excellence and a sensational sound stage.
  • The Concept 500 pairs Point-to-Point (P2P™) bracing to deal with low-frequency panel vibrations with Helmholtz Pressure Equalizers (HPE™) to balance out pressure irregularities.
  • Three separate layers filled with a non-setting gel, which dampens the cabinet walls and converts higher frequency vibrations into heat for better performance.

Crossover
Great care has been taken in both the design of the crossover and the selection of high grade components, to introduce virtually zero noise and distortion. The 4th-order Linkwitz-Riley topology which gives an excellent response both on and off-axis.

Cabinet Bracing
A method, known as P2P™ (Point to Point) bracing, supports the parts of the cabinet that need to be stiffened to deal with low frequency panel vibrations.

Cabinet Walls
Constructed in three separate layers and filled under pressure with a non-setting gel, this damps the cabinet walls and converts higher frequency vibrations into heat.

High Frequency Driver
Mechanically decoupled mounting which effectively isolates the HF driver and speaker cabinet from reciprocal vibrations that would otherwise be transmitted between them.

Mid/Bass Drivers
The Mid/Bass voice coil has an uncommonly large diameter of 35mm which allows increased ‘shove’ and higher power handling – as well as reducing compression.

Pressure Equalisers
Tall loudspeakers tend to suffer from resonances caused by unwanted pressure gradients. Specially designed Helmholtz Pressure Equalisers (HPE™) balance out these pressure irregularities.
