Its precision soundstage, powerful dynamics and rich deep bass make it the natural choice for both home cinema enthusiasts and discerning music lovers.
Introducing a new evolution of the Q Acoustics 7000 Series, the Q7000i. As with its predecessor the 7000i is a svelt home cinema pacakge and comprises five pill-shaped satellites, each housing two 7.5cm long-throw mid/bass drivers that straddle a 25mm ring-radiator tweeter and subwoofer featuring a 20cm drive unit.
The new Q7000i package has been overhauled. It has new drive units and a new crossover in the satellites, and a new drive unit and amplifier inside the subwoofer.
The Q Acoustics team has tweaked the design too, with the high gloss of the Q7000 swapped for a more understated matt finish, in a choice of black or white.
To achieve their elegant appearance, the infinite baffle enclosures are cast in aluminium and damping materials are applied internally to eliminate any cabinet resonances.
Each speaker boasts twin, custom designed, 75mm, ultra long throw bass/mid range drivers. State-of-the-art light weight coated paper was selected for the cone material because, combined with a rubber surround, it enables the speaker to deliver a wide dynamic range, very low distortion and ultra fast transients. The tweeter, also bespoke, is a 25mm, Neodymium magnet, 'Ring Radiator' model.
The outstanding dispersion characteristic of this advanced design creates a wonderfully three dimensional sound stage for both music and home cinema, as well as delivering very smooth and detailed high frequencies.
Each speaker also benefits from an adjustable, integral stand in the same finish. This can be configured to become either a wall or ceiling bracket and includes a clever cable management system to hide the speaker cable.
Naturally, a beautifully styled and finished matching floor stand, complete with cable management, is also available.
The small, slim and attractive 7070Si subwoofer is revolutionary. Q Acoustics' engineers have developed a new variation to the traditional 'infinite baffle' design solution. It delivers an outstandingly controlled, detailed and dynamic bass sound and also enables ease of placement within the listening room.
The subwoofer's 8 inch (200mm), High Excursion bass driver fires internally against a heavy, rigid 'sounding board'. This surface deflects the bass notes evenly into the room through slim subwoofer grilles located on the top and both sides of the gloss finished unit. The new subwoofer is floor or wall mountable and also deceptively powerful, boasting an in-built 150 watt Class-D power amplifier.
