The 'Concept 20' is a special loudspeaker which goes beyond anything that Q Acoustics has achieved before. It's a beautifully styled product which we confidently believe delivers a level of sonic performance previously thought impossible at its price point."

To achieve this extraordinary performance, Q Acoustics' design team applied scientific methodology and advances in technology to address the problem of cabinet resonance; long recognised as the single biggest hurdle preventing speaker designers delivering true 'high end' performance at a reasonable price.

What is Gelcore

The 'Concept 20' proves cabinet resonance need be a problem no longer.*

Incorporating a 'cabinet within a cabinet' design, its inner and outer enclosures are bound together by a bespoke adhesive which never quite sets. This configuration (known as Gelcore™ construction) allows the kinetic energy generated by the drive units within the cabinet to be dispersed as heat and preventing them colouring and degrading the speaker's musical output.

The 'cabinet within a cabinet' Gelcore™ construction dramatically reduces resonances and colouration.

The 'cabinet within a cabinet' Gelcore(TM) construction

Combine this new cabinet design with the Concept 20's advanced, high dynamic, low distortion drive units and the result is a loudspeaker which, at its price, is nothing short of sensational."

Sonically Matching Floorstand

To optimise sonic performance, we have also incorporated Gelcore(TM) Construction into a unique, visually striking and resonance-free matching floorstand for the new loudspeaker.

The beautiful Concept 20 speakers and high performance stands come in a choice of either Gloss White or Gloss Black, lacquered finishes.

*When compared to a good conventional cabinet, radiated power (colouration) throughout the critical mid-band (voice frequencies) reduces by an average of more than -6dB. In the high and low frequencies the effect is even greater, with improvements in excess of -10dB.

What the reviewers say -

The Concept 20 is a truly remarkable new loudspeaker which delivers a level of sonic performance previously only available to audiophiles able to invest in high-end models.

"It's amazing how much difference the new cabinet makes - these speakers are in a different league"
What HiFi Magazine, May 2013

This exceptional performance has been achieved by using breakthrough technology and applying scientific methodology to overcome the fundamental problems of speaker design.

As well as class leading drive units and crossover, the beautifully lacquered. Concept 20 cabinet utilises GelcoreTM construction, specifically developed for acoustic enclosures. In effect this is a ‘cabinet within a cabinet’; separated by a special, resonance cancelling compound. This enables the drive units to simply reproduce music, unencumbered by cabinet induced colouration.

The result is nothing short of sensational.

For the very best results the Concept 20 should be used on its unique dedicated speaker stand, which uses the same GelcoreTM construction technique.
