Q Acoustics Concept 500 loudspeakers

 

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.


"Hi-FiChoice" reviewThis is an outstanding speaker that shows an all-round depth of talent that would be impressive even if the price were considerably higher. Its ability to remain transparent so that you can simply get on with enjoying the music is something that Q Acoustics can be very proud of, as it redefines expectations at the price. It’s comparatively unfussy about its environment or the electronics that integrate with it as part of a system and should be top of any shortlist if you’re looking to spend £4k on a floorstander.

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.

Finish
The gloss black finish has been combined with Italian real-wood veneer, chosen for its consistency in colour and pattern. The veneer is used sparingly in a subtle strip to create a cabinet that is visually light and clean.

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.

P2P 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.

Gelcore 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.

Terminals and Rear Access Panel
The rear access panel has been constructed to maintain the integrity of the Dual Gelcore cabinet. The Concept 500 is equipped for bi-wiring or bi-amping with terminals which can accept bare wires, spades or 4mm banana plugs.

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.

HPE Pressure Equalisers
Tall loudspeakers tend to suffer from resonances caused by un wanting pressure gradients. Specifically designed Helmholtz Pressure Equalisers *HPE) balance out these pressure irregularities.

Cabinet Plinth
The cast aluminium base of the Concept 500 is designed without large flat areas or additional adornments to discourage unwanted acoustic reflections. The resulting elegant design is underpinned with a choice of carefully engineered feet to immovably couple the loudspeaker to any surface.
