Q Acoustics Concept 40 Cinema Pack

 

Since the beginnings of ‘Hi-Fi’ over fifty years ago, it has been known that loudspeaker cabinet resonance is a major factor limiting a hi-fi system’s sonic performance. Fortunately it is very easy to overcome; you simply have to spend a very large amount of money designing and constructing heavy, dense, high mass cabinets with lots of internal bracing. The result should be excellent, but very expensive, ‘high end’ loudspeakers. In fact the difference between speakers that are rated merely as ‘good’ and those accepted to be truly excellent ‘high end’ models, is their level of cabinet resonance. Q Acoustics Concept Series changes everything.

Gelcore

GelcoreTM Construction is in effect a ‘cabinet within a cabinet’, with a special resonance cancelling compound adhering between the inner and outer shells. This cabinet is both very rigid and exhibits extremely low resonance. The latter being achieved because the resonance-cancelling compound absorbs the kinetic energy (movement) generated within the cabinet by the drive units, which is then dispersed by converting it into heat.

 

Q Acoustics Concept 40 Speakers

 

"Surprising sonic agility and composure …. a wonderfully inviting sound"

What HiFi? March 2014


Q Acoustics Concept 40 Speakers

The Concept 40 is Q Acoustics’ flagship floorstanding speaker. It is the newest addition of the acclaimed award winning Concept range, and we are highly confident about its ability to deliver unparalleled sonic performance at its price. We strongly believe that these HiFi speakers set new standards, and can even outperform those that are in a much higher price bracket.

In common with the Concept 20 its award-winning ‘little brother’, the new Concept 40’s unparalleled soundstage, dynamics and sheer musicality is achieved by incorporating outstanding, bespoke drive units into a lacquered, State-of-the-Art, ‘GelcoreTM Construction’, ultra-low resonance cabinet, which ultimately allows them to perform at its very best. The drive units have powerful oversized magnets attached to them to lower the cabinet resonance and the tripod stand allows these floorstanding loudspeakers to have perfect rigidity and contact with the floor to enhance its performance.

 

 

The aluminium facia plate not only enhances the aesthetics of them, but also helps to reduce cabinet resonance as it features a butyl clamp. With a sensitivity of 90dB, and a speaker imprudence that never get s lower than 4 ohms, it means that the Concept 40 is easy to drive with any good quality amplifier. With a striking floorstanding design which is available in either high gloss black, or high gloss white, these loudspeakers really do look as good as they sound.

Q Acoustics Concept 20 Speakers





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

 

 

Q Acoustics is proud to introduce the new Concept 20 Loudspeaker.

 

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.

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.

Q Acoustics Concept Centre Speaker

Q Acoustics Concept Centre Speaker

The Concept Centre is the heart of the Concept Cinema System. This new loudspeaker boasts a precisely optimised implementation of the revolutionary 'Gelcore' cabinet technology developed for the ground breaking Concept 20 and Concept 40 models. The result is a centre channel speaker that delivers astonishingly clear and dynamic dialogue.

Both 5.1 and 7.1 systems can be configured from the other speakers in the concept range combined with our 2070i sub. In addition, if an installation requires overhead speakers (Dolby Atmos or DTS:X), we recommend the use of the Q Acoustics Install Performance In-ceiling range.

Changing your Mind
It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.

 

How we Handle Returns
Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:

Returns

Exchange
This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

Credit Note
This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

Refund
This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

25% Restocking Fee
If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.
