Series Overview:

Since the beginnings of ‘Hi-Fi’ over fifty years ago, it has been known that loudspeaker cabinet resonance is a major factor limiting a hi-fi system’s sonic performance. Fortunately it is very easy to overcome; you simply have to spend a very large amount of money designing and constructing heavy, dense, high mass cabinets with lots of internal bracing. The result should be excellent, but very expensive, ‘high end’ loudspeakers. In fact the difference between speakers that are rated merely as ‘good’ and those accepted to be truly excellent ‘high end’ models, is their level of cabinet resonance. Q Acoustics Concept Series changes everything.

GelcoreTM Construction is in effect a ‘cabinet within a cabinet’, with a special resonance cancelling compound adhering between the inner and outer shells. This cabinet is both very rigid and exhibits extremely low resonance. The latter being achieved because the resonance-cancelling compound absorbs the kinetic energy (movement) generated within the cabinet by the drive units, which is then dispersed by converting it into heat.

Model Overview:

Founded in 2006, Q Acoustics quickly built a reputation for designing and manufacturing class-leading loudspeakers. Concept 500 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 Concept 500 achieves 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.
