Concept 40 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker Package
With the outstanding success from reviewers worldwide of the Concept 20 and Concept 40 speakers it seemed only natural that the Concept series should be made available as a surround sound package. Q Acoustics designed the Concept centre speaker to visually and tonally match the rest of the Concept range to ensure that dialogue from the centre channel is as natural and dynamic as possible. Pair the 5.0 system with the Q Acoustics 2070si subwoofer from the critically acclaimed, mukti award winning 2000i series and you have a home cinema speaker package that will give a performance comparable to systems at twice the price.
High End Speaker Design
The entire Concept range uses Gelcore technology that dramatically reduces cabinet performance to ensure that the sound you hear is from the driver itself rather than being coloured by the cabinet. The Gelcore system is achieved by building a second cabinet within the outer cabinet which is separated by a type of glue that retains a fluid like texture meaning that cabinet vibrations are kept to a minimum. Q Acoustics then went a step further and included a rubber dampener to the attractive aluminium faceplate to reduce cabinet resonance even further.
Style Speaker Package
Normally a style speaker package would comprise of small but purposely formed speakers with a subwoofer, we believe that the Concept range brings a whole new meaning to that phrase. The tripod stand design of the Concept 40 uses glass tipped with elegant chrome spikes at the rear and dual spikes at the front. The machined lines in the front of the cabinet accentuate the beatiful lacquered finish. The Concept 20 stands are built to emulate the concept 40 speakers with the same tripod stand and contoured lines.
Q Acoustics Concept 40
The two 5 inch bass units of the Concept 40 have been designed to please Home Cinema lovers as well as Hifi audiophiles. The oversized magnets, high sensitivity and nominal 8 ohm load mean that every bass note and transient will be heard with breath taking clarity and precision. The 25mm tweeter tackles the high end with ease and gives a natural performance that isnt too bright. The overall presentation from the concept 40 is evenly balanced and refined meaning that it can be paired with almost any amplifier.
Q Acoustics Concept 20
The Concept 20 uses one of the 5 inch bass units from its bigger brother, the concept 40 meaning that when effects pan from speaker to speaker the tone, or timbre, will be even. Timbre matching is key in a surround sound system as you wouldnt want to hear voices change as they move from speaker to speaker. The tweeter is the same unit found in the Concept 40 meaning that the evenly balanced performance is still present.
Q Acoustics designed the Concept centre speaker to visually and tonally match the rest of the Concept range to ensure that dialogue from the centre channel is as natural and dynamic as possible.
Using dual 170mm drivers the 2070Si subwoofer gives the performance of an 8 inch subwoofer in a narrower cabinet. The advanced DSP within the subwoofer has been tuned to give maximum response with minimal distortion at any volume level, this type of technology is usually unheard of at this price point. The DSP also provides a switch that allows you to incorporate the subwoofer with either ported or sealed speakers giving you a perfect balance at the crossover point meaning that bass will not be lost at the crossover point where the subwoofer takes over from the main speakers. Pair this subwoofer with the rest of the Concept range and you will be rewarded with a detailed and full bodied surround sound experience.
