”The 3050is are full of energy and even better than their predecessors – Q Acoustics has come up with the goods once more.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £649

HPE enhanced for a purer sound

Unique to the 3050i model, HPE (Helmholtz Pressure Equalizer) technology reduces distortion. Larger speaker cabinets tend to build up pressure in specific areas, causing resonance and cabinet distortion. By equalising the pressure around the cabinet the pressure is reduced, giving a less distorted sound.

Improved cabinet bracing
Working alongside HPE is new P2P bracing. P2P (Point-to-Point) bracing is now deployed to enhance rigidity and further reduce cabinet distortion. Reducing cabinet distortion lets the drive units operate at their optimum, giving a cleaner, purer sound.

Revised drive units
With their newly developed surrounds, the bass units are even more accurate and faster to respond. The coated paper woofer cones are light, rigid, and helps give the 3050i’s their deep, punchy sound quality. The tweeter units are decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, meaning that the treble isn’t affected by vibration from the bass unit. With power and purity of sound at their heart, the 3050i’s are amongst the most dynamic sounding speakers in their class.

Twin woofers for a big sound with movies or music
The 3050i is a worthy flagship - with twin woofer units the bass depth and dynamics are effortlessly deep and powerful. Despite the exhilarating sound, they’re far from unrefined. Thanks to high quality components and clever design, they still have the same skill with extracting the finer subtleties of music. The big scale sound created by the 3050i’s also makes them ideal as the front speakers in a home cinema set. For a totally cohesive sound, simply add the matching 3000i-Series centre and satellite speakers.

Four finishes to suit your style
With its distinctively designed, rounded cabinets, the 3050i is a stylish speaker. Choose between four different finishes and you can get the look that’s perfect for your home. Choose between Graphite Grey and Carbon Black for a technical look to blend well with your other hi-fi components. Alternatively, Arctic White looks great in modern interiors. Finally, the English Walnut vinyl finish is the ideal complement for both antique and contemporary wooden furniture.

Whether it’s thrill-a-minute action or soothing Classical music, the Q Acoustic 3050i speakers will have you gripped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds and Looks awesome I bought the Cambridge CX Series at Richer Sounds and when I spoke to the advisor/assistant Nathan he guided me straight to the Q305i floor speakers. He told me that these speakers were the best there was in the price budget I was looking at - and he is not wrong. Assembly is straight forward and easy and once connected to the system the sound was unbelievable, it was awesome. I chose the Graphite finish to fit in with the hifi system and the house decor and they blend is so easily irrespective of their size. A very worthwhile purchase which produces an awesome sound. Recommend these bad boys any time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers You won’t get better quality for this price. They have an impressive performance, and the way it merges the sound is remarkable. I compared with even more expensive speakers and they don’t compete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking speakers and great sound Had these for just over a week now. Bought to replace a pair of Rogers ls2 speakers that I got c. 30 years ago and am very impressed with the sound using both a turntable and a streamer as source. Bass is strong, but not overpowering, treble is fine and voices have great presence. Spent more time than I should have since getting them listening to my collection and enjoying every minute. Highly recommended demoing these if you are looking for new, affordable floorstanders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing These speakers sound amazing when paired with a decent amplifier and some good quality OFC cabling. They give a nice warm bass and a crisp treble without any calibration, though using Audyssey MultEQ on my AV Receiver does bring out even more richness. If pairing with a sub-woofer for movies, make sure it can hit those low notes as these speakers can produce audible sound down as low as around 37Hz by my measurements. The Q Acoustics 3060S works well with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speakers Bought 2 weeks ago to compliment my Denon receiver. Absolutely blown away by the sound quality and ease of setup. The graphite grey colour gives them that modern look which will last long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, crystal clear clarity! I bought my pair of Q Acoustic 3050i speakers to replace my old B&W 602.5 floorstanders and to say I was a bit apprehensive about letting my ‘old faithfuls’ go, is an understatement. However, I knew I was looking for something ‘extra’ in my listening experience, more depth of sound, more clarity and more range, from top to bottom. The Q Acoustics have exceeded my expectations 100-fold! These stylish and exceptionally sophisticated speakers are first class and I look forward to many hours of highly enjoyable listening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Q Acoustics 3050i Speakers - First Impressions Yesterday I purchased these newly released Q Acoustics 3050i Floorstanding Speakers to replace my smaller 3020 Q Acoustics Speakers on Q Acoustic stands. Early days obviously....but they really improve the bass and middle range frequencies over the 3020's . I highly recommend using the foam inserts supplied to fill the open ports at the back of the speakers. The reason for this is that if you place the speakers too close to the wall at the back, without doing this, the bass is too open and spoils the overall tightness of the bass and middle range sound stage. I feel this is very important as I have tried auditioning them with and without and for me with the foam inserted they sound much better! If you have the space I highly recommended these 3050i Floorstanding Speakers at £650.00 which I think is very good value for mid range Audiophile speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasing on the ears I was persuaded to buy these after returning a pair of Dali speakers. I am so pleased. Seem to perform well with a wide range of music and really bring the best out of well produced albums. Am using with a Yamaha AS-501 amp and appears to be a good match (no problems with bass as has been suggested in some reviews of the amp). Unless you want to spend megabucks then these are an option worth considering.
