Q Acoustics Concept 500 Floorstanding Speakers: A Fusion of Art and Acoustic Precision

1. Exquisite Design for the Discerning Audiophile The Concept 500 from Q Acoustics, the pinnacle of their Concept speaker range, is a floorstanding speaker crafted for audiophiles who appreciate both aesthetic beauty and exceptional sound quality. This high-end speaker harmonizes art and science, presenting a stylish and contemporary design that delivers astonishingly accurate and exquisite sound.

2. Premium Aesthetic with Real-Wood Veneer Available in gloss black or gloss white finishes, the Concept 500 is adorned with Italian real-wood veneer, enhancing its visual appeal. The addition of a subtle veneer strip complements the cabinet’s sleek design, creating an appearance that is both clean and sophisticated.

3. Meticulously Designed Crossover for Pristine Sound Engineers at Q Acoustics have carefully developed the crossover, utilizing high-grade components to minimize noise and distortion. The 4th-order Linkwitz-Riley topology of the crossover ensures an excellent response, delivering a consistent audio experience both on and off-axis.

4. Advanced P2P™ Cabinet Bracing for Reduced Vibrations The innovative Point-to-Point (P2P™) bracing technique is employed to enhance the rigidity of the speaker cabinet, particularly in areas susceptible to low-frequency vibrations. This method ensures a more stable and distortion-free sound.

5. Gelcore™ Cabinet Walls for Damping Vibrations The Concept 500’s cabinet walls feature a unique three-layer construction, filled with a non-setting gel under pressure. This innovative design dampens vibrations and converts higher frequency vibrations into heat, resulting in cleaner sound output.

6. Advanced Terminal Design for Versatile Connectivity Equipped with a rear access panel that maintains the Dual Gelcore™ cabinet's integrity, the Concept 500 offers options for bi-wiring or bi-amping. The terminals are compatible with bare wires, spades, or 4mm banana plugs, providing flexibility in connectivity.

7. Isolated High-Frequency Driver for Enhanced Sound Quality The high-frequency driver in the Concept 500 is mechanically decoupled from the cabinet, effectively isolating it to prevent any vibration-induced sound quality degradation.

8. Exceptional Mid/Bass Drivers for Superior Performance Featuring a large 35mm diameter voice coil, the mid/bass drivers of the Concept 500 are designed for increased power handling, reduced compression, and improved audio performance, delivering a rich and dynamic sound.

9. HPE™ Technology for Balanced Acoustics The Concept 500 incorporates Helmholtz Pressure Equalisers (HPE™) to counteract the resonance issues often found in tall speakers. This technology balances internal pressure irregularities, enhancing overall sound quality.

10. Elegantly Engineered Cabinet Plinth The cast aluminum base of the Concept 500 is meticulously designed to avoid large flat areas and superfluous elements, minimizing acoustic reflections. The speaker is supported by engineered feet, ensuring stable placement on any surface.

In essence, the Q Acoustics Concept 500 floorstanding speakers are a testament to sophisticated design and acoustic engineering, offering an unparalleled listening experience for audiophiles and music enthusiasts.
