"The 3050s are so talented, they can give speakers closer to 1000 a real run for their money - a brilliant pair of budget floorstanders" What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016

Award-winning predecessors

The Q Acoustics 2000-Series was one of the most widely praised speaker ranges, having picked up numerous awards throughout its life. With revisions to every aspect of that fundamentally assured design, the 3000-Series is set to take the market by storm.

Revised drive units
At the heart of the 3050 are brand new speaker units for an even more impressive sound quality. Starting at the top, the new Ring Dome tweeter provides precise reproduction of even the most subtle aspects of music. It's also decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, it isn't affected by vibration from the bass units. The new Aramid Fibre/Paper woofer cones are light and rigid, and help give the 3050s their punchy, agile sound quality.

Twin woofers
The 3050 is a worthy flagship - with twin woofer units the bass depth and dynamics are effortlessly deep and powerful. Yet, despite its exhilarating sound, it's far from uncouth. Thanks to high quality components and design, it still has the same subtle skill with extracting the finer subtleties of music. A new design of plinth not only looks good, but keeps the 3050 firmly planted, helping to promote a cleaner, tighter sound.

Class-leading cross-over
With revised cabinet bracing, the distinctive Q Acoustics cabinets have been made even better. With reduced cabinet resonance, the sound becomes less coloured and closer its studio/concert venue sound. Up-rated audiophile grade crossover components improve the transparency of sound still further.

New range of finishes
Still distinctively designed with signature rounded cabinets, the new 3000-Series is available in a broad range of finishes. Choose between Matt Graphite, Black Leather Effect or Black Lacquer for a technical look. Alternatively, White Lacquer looks great in modern interiors. Finally, the American Walnut vinyl finish is the ideal complement for both antique and traditional furniture.

Robust yet refined and offering an expansive sound quality, the Q Acoustics 3050 speakers will have you glued to your seat!

Speaker Enclosure TypeType of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.

Q ACOUSTICS 3050 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning sounding speakers Had so many speakers the past 10 years, including some very expensive ones but these produce such an immersive soundstage. The mids blend with the highs so sweetly like nothing I've heard. I would say though spend some time thinking about positioning as to get the best out of them they need to be positioned correctly. I read some good articles online on position ratios in different shaped rooms i.e. sq, rect etc.and that helped no end. Also great customer service from RS, first speakers one was faulty they swapped them out via courier within a day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb ! I can honestly say these are the best most stylish speakers I have ever owned, and for the price their SUPERB. They are not even fully run in yet either and already they bring the music to life, can't wait till they are... they'll be outstanding, well done Q Acoustics you deserve every bit of accolade you get, they sound clear, balanced, controlled & open. I can't stop listening to them. And as for the Base (I thought nothing at this price would touch my TDL's) How wrong could I be, they have bags of controlled deep base that make the room shake if you want it. All in all I'm one very happy man.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - what a sound! These speakers produce a fantastic sound - I purchased the charcoal version and they are built so well. The bass is amazing - no need for a sub. These speakers work really well with my CXA60 and BT100!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Punchy Yet Articulate sound, and are comfortable delivering a variety of musical genres The more I listen to the 3050 speakers the more I seem to like them. It has taken a little time and patience in order to find the ideal position for them to sit. I now enjoy a clear articulate sound, with plenty enough bass response within my medium sized room. They seem fairly easy to drive, and the 60w amplifier I am using, never needs to be turned up much more than a suggested quarter of its volume level. They produce a good sound via cd or music player, and never limited by the chosen genre of music. They are also pretty good when only listening to them at very low volume levels

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning floorstanders I can't say enough about these speakers,, I'm amazed ..... sound quality is fantastic and their uber modern crisp looks make other floorstanders look ugly in comparison.. I was looking for a 5.2 system so went for the full speaker package and a second subwoofer ..treble is clean and very crisp and they have plenty of space to be pushed too. The bottom plinth is excellent and keeps the speakers firmly balanced but...the speaker bindings are at weird angles to one another instead of the normal straight way which was the only thing I found wrong due to the thicker less bendy speaker cable I opted for ...10/10 richer sounds thanks Diego and the team in Liverpool for your continued excellent service.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seem great! I can't claim to know much about speakers or audio separate systems. I read quite a few reviews and did a few tests in stores, then decided these were likely to be everything I wanted at around the right price. I haven't been disappointed with the 3050s. They sound great and I have no complaints. They produced a decent enough level of bass for me to push getting a sub a bit further back down my priority list, until I've recovered from Christmas spending.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good service and great product Coming from aboard I asked to listed to my speakers in the store which were done with a smile. I event got a hand loading the large boxes into my car. At home the installation was easy and sound great. The speakers comes with a foam block for bass damping, very appreciated when you have others around, the blocks were somewhat squeezed into a strange form by the way they were packed. Otherwise all great.
