Q Acoustics Concept 500 Floor Standing Speakers
Q Acoustics have built their reputation of producing high quality Hi-Fi components over the course of almost 12 years; and now, with the addition of the new Q Acoustics Concept 500 Floor Standing Speakers, they are only confirming that this is still the case. This new speaker is a result of the culmination of the continual evolution and refinement in sonic perfection that Q Acoustics strive to accomplish.
The Concept 500 speakers have been designed with audiophiles in mind, achieving the perfect balance of stylish aesthetics and impressive technological advances. Coupling low directivity with wide bandwidth, impressive sensitivity and impedance, these speakers are both room friendly and easy to drive. This will allow the Concept 500s’ amplifiers to deliver a performance that will blow you away.
Creating a stereo soundstage that will offer a good impression of width, depth and height - the likes of which can be found in a live performance - would require high quality drive units, a sophisticated crossover and an accurately constructed speaker cabinet. In order to achieve all of this, Q Acoustics have formed an extremely talented team of individuals to come together and create this: a new state-of-the-art loudspeaker that would make even the most discerning of audiophiles happy.
The crossover within the Concept 500 was created with great care and attention, with an intuitive design and high grade components implemented throughout, this crossover introduces virtually no noise and distortion, meaning you can enjoy all of your music unimpeded. Included within this crossover is the 4th-order Linkwitz-Riley topology, incorporated in order to produce an excellent response both on and off-axis.
With a high frequency driver that has been mechanically decoupled, the Q Acoustics Concept 500 speakers’ HF driver and speaker cabinet have been isolated from reciprocal vibrations that would otherwise be transmitted between the two components.
The mid/bass voice coil in these speakers has an uncommonly large diameter at 35mm. This will allow for increased ‘shove’ and higher power handling, as well as reducing compression.
Point-to-point (also known as P2P) bracing has been included in order to support the parts of this speakers cabinet that needed to be stiffened in order to deal with low frequency panel vibrations.
Gelcore™ cabinet walls, constructed in three separate layers and filled under presson with a non-setting gel, will damp the cabinet walls and convert higher frequency vibrations into heat.
On the rear of the cabinet, a rear access panel has been constructed in order to maintain the integrity of the Dual Gelcore™ cabinet. This speaker has been equipped for bi-wiring and bi-amping, including terminals that are able to accept bare wires, spades and 4mm banana plugs.
HPE™ pressure equalisers have been included to stop the Concept 500’s from suffering from resonances caused by unwanted pressure gradients – a problem that most tall loudspeakers run into. To combat this issue, Q Acoustics have used specially designed Helmholtz Pressure Equalisers to balance out these pressure irregularities.
The cabinet plinth of the Q Acoustic Concept 500 speakers has been cast out of aluminium, and has been designed without any large and flat areas or additional adornments in order to discourage any unwanted acoustic reflections. This results in an elegant design that not only works to please the eye aesthetically, but also to please the ear in its exceptional performance. Expertly engineered feet have also been incorporated into these speakers in order to immovably couple the loudspeaker to any surface.
