Q Acoustics is all about finding the combination that delivers the best performance and best value at each price level.
For the launch of the latest Q Acoustics series, Australia got a global first, the seven models in the 3000i loudspeaker series being announced in Melbourne at an event by Australian distributor Indi Imports. The new 3000i loudspeaker series delivers true hi-fi and immersive, powerful home cinema sound for the home at an affordable price. Building on the success of the original 3000 series, this new range features innovative audio and design technology taken from the company’s high-end flagship Concept 500 loudspeaker to significantly improve on what was already an award-winning audio performance.
Whether it's a stereo upgrade to your hi-fi system, a compact bookshelf speaker for tight spaces, or floor-standers for larger rooms or even a 5.1 set-up to take TV, movies and gaming to the next level, then there is a model to suit all budgets and living spaces. The series consists of the 3050i large floor-stander, the compact 3010i and mid-sized 3020i bookshelf speakers with a matching 3090i centre-channel speaker and the slimline 3060S active sub-woofer completing a 5.1 surround sound home cinema speaker set-up.
The original 3000 series already delivered an open, realistic and powerful sound-stage typical found in expensive speakers, winning multiple awards and rave reviews. Significant upgrades in sonic's and aesthetic's, delivers further enhance the lifelike and dynamic sound.
To deliver a larger-scale sound, the 3010i and 3020i bookshelf models have been designed slightly taller and 25% deeper than its predecessors. This increase in physical volume allows the low-end frequencies to be extended for more powerful bass sounds whilst maintaining what is a diminutive size.
The 3000i series is available in four stylish premium finishes - Graphite Grey, English Walnut, Carbon Black or Arctic White - and enhanced with an attractive chrome finish around each driver to fit seamlessly into any interior style.
Q Acoustics’ engineers recognise that a meticulously designed enclosure can reduce the structural vibrations that can adversely affect the sonic performance. Taking P2P™ (Point to Point) bracing first employed in the Concept 500 loudspeakers, the new 3000i range now features internal support in areas of the cabinet that need stiffening, including an extra precision-cut top damping panel. The result is a more focused, accurate and low distortion fidelity.
The 3050i also benefits from innovative audio technology first designed for the company’s flagship floorstander. Tall loudspeaker enclosures are vulnerable to increased internal pressure caused by standing waves. These generate unwanted resonances that colour the sound. Q Acoustics’ engineers have employed specially designed HPE™ (Helmholtz Pressure Equaliser) Tubes inside the 3050i’s cabinet to eliminate these performance-effecting vibrations and maintain a transparent soundstage.
