” The Concept 500s prove Q Acoustics can compete at all levels. They’re superb speakers for the money.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review.

Multi-award-winning speakers

Having met with universal acclaim, the Concept 500 speakers have been lavished with praise by the most critical publications and websites. These speakers already have their own trophy cabinet of gongs including Hi-Fi Choice (Editor’s Choice), Hi-Fi News (Outstanding Product), AVForums (Reference Status), EISA (Best Product – Floorstanding Loudspeaker) and What Hi-Fi (5-Star review). Take a listen for yourself and you’ll soon hear why these speakers are so highly rated.

Science for sound
For the purest, most natural sound, Q Acoustics applied science and innovative engineering. Featuring HPE (Helmholtz Pressure Equalizer) technology, distortion is reduced to a minimum. 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.

Triple-layer cabinet for the purest sound
The cabinet is constructed from three separate layers, damped by Gelcore non-setting gel. This reduces cabinet distortion to an absolute minimum, letting your hear the sound exactly as the artist intended.

Life-like sound through superior soundstaging
To deliver a life-like sound, Q Acoustics has concentrated on giving the Concept 500 an expansive soundstage with broad width and depth of sound. By using a rigid, narrow cabinet, precise crossover and high performance drive units, they’ve achieved just that. Sit back, close your eyes and you could be there.

Powerful bass response
Using twin, long-throw woofers, the Concept 500 has powerful bass to match much larger speaker units. Ultra-wide voice coils increase the performance of these compact woofers, meaning they can punch much harder than most units of this size. The large capacity bass port effortlessly releases pressure build-up inside the cabinet, making these speakers not just powerful-sounding but also easy for lower powered amps to drive.

Sweet top end
At the other end of the frequency response, mechanically decoupled tweeters give a smooth yet detailed treble response. Mechanical decoupling effectively isolates the tweeter from vibrations, letting the full clarity from the top end shine out. If a pin drops on the recording, you’ll hear it.

Choose your luxury finish
As standard, the Concept 500 comes with a choice of gloss black or gloss white finishes. For an even more luxurious finish, the gloss finish can be complemented by a choice of light oak (with the white finish) or rosewood (with black). Whichever finish you choose, the cast aluminium plinth not only offers a stable support but also an elegant styling feature.

Hear the music just as the artist intended, with the Q Acoustics Concept 500.
