Q Acoustics Concept 50 Tower / Floorstanding Speaker- (Pair)
Q Acoustics Concept 50 Tower / Floorstanding Speaker- (Pair) Description
Q Acoustics Concept50 Tower / Floorstanding Speaker- (Pair)
Designed as an integral part of the mechanical structure of the cabinet, both the 5-inch mid/bass and 0.9-inch tweeter drivers are new, ground-up designs specifically for the Concept 30, 50 and 90 loudspeakers. The drive units are fixed to a remarkably stiff 3mm aluminium baffle plate before it is fitted to the cabinet ? this gives the correct acoustic seal, dampening vibrations and minimising structural coupling.
Lastly, the crossover itself is mounted to the isolation base, keeping it free of sound-effecting vibrations and away from the electromagnetic influence of the drivers themselves.
HPE? (Helmholtz Pressure Equalizer?) technology??
The very nature of the Q Acoustics Concept 50 Floorstanding Speaker tower design can introduce undesirable standing waves within the cabinet. By employing an HPE? (Helmholtz Pressure Equalizer?) tube design, first launched in the Concept 500, pressure is converted to velocity to eliminate these performance-effecting vibrations and to help deliver the ideal frequency response.
Boasting the same sophisticated design lines and stunning, premium high gloss finish of the top-of-the-range 300 and 500 models, the new range retains the signature aluminium front baffle plate that made the original Concept speakers so iconic. The Q Acoustics Concept 50 Floorstanding Speaker arrives in three striking lacquers: black, silver and white.
Introduced in the original Concept speaker, the Gelcore? cabinet construction is designed to minimize high-frequency noise. A unique design comprised of a non-setting gel sandwiched between two individual layers, this specially developed adhesive dissipates high-frequency vibrations, generated by the moving drivers, into heat to maintain a focused audio performance.
Isolation suspension system
A variation on the hugely effective ?isolation base? principle first seen on Concept 300 means the Concept 50 have a suspension system in the form of a sprung baseplate. Two plates are separated by suspension ?spheres? that effectively isolates the cabinet from interference from external vibrations, providing tighter stereo imaging, while also bringing greater depth.
P2P? (Point to Point?) technology
To keep the cabinet as rigid as possible, P2P? (Point to Point?) internal bracing is employed. First introduced in Concept 500, reinforcement is fitted to interior areas of the cabinet susceptible to low-end frequency reverberations..
All models in the Concept series feature Bi-Wire terminals on the rear of the cabinet. This means, using a compatible speaker cable, two pair of cables can be run from your power source (amplifer) to the speaker. One set of cables carries the high-frequency signals, while the second pair transfers the mid/low frequencies.
The advantage of separating these frequencies through bi-wiring are two-fold: Intermodulation distortion caused by interactions between the high and low frequencies traveling down the cable can be minimized, with the result being a noticeable improvement in the clarity of the mid-range.
