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 Alan Ashby from Great floor mounted speakers It has been a long time that I have needed to upgrade my 25 year old Linn speakers! I think it was worth the wait. These Q Acoustics sound great and my wife has eventually got used to the size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rubberneckrick from Nicely built, great sound I had a mismatched centre and front speakers so decided on switching to q acoustics and in the short time of owning them, I have been most impressed. My previous speakers were Tannoy floorstanders and a Cambridge centre, which sounded good and clear, however these q acoustics are definitely a step up. Paired with a Sony str dn1080 amp, they are detailed and most engaging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fred347 from great kit for the money big upgrade for me, im lucky enough to have a projection room and its like having a new AV system. my dvd collection feels brand new and reflects the importance of having a good speaker system. the build quality is top draw. the only downside was when playing "Blade runner 2" it struggled with some of the real deep musical bass sounds but this film is a one off in terms of dynamic range. it demonstrates the high quality system possible for not a lot of money. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by radioektyf from Amazing Value for Money! Extremely happy with my new setup. This is my first proper sound system, having previously used various 2.1 and 5.1 soundbar + subwoofer systems. I currently have these two speakers set up in a 3.0 system with the QA 3090Ci in the middle and they work really well. An upgrade to a 5.0 or 5.1 home cinema configuration in the near future is already being planned. In my opinion, the QA 3050i offer an amazing value for their price tag, and I genuinely wish I purchased them long time ago. Music, films, TV shows or gaming - any type of content is so much more enjoyable and clearer now. Particularly music, where you suddenly hear all the instruments and basically rediscover some cool parts of your favourite songs again! The 3050i offer plenty of bass, which means you don't have to worry if there's no money left in your budget for a subwoofer or if you (like me) can't have one due to neighbours. The build quality is good, though you may find some tiny cosmetic imperfections here and there, which is apparently normal with large wooden loudspeakers. Totally worth the money and I already feel these speakers will be bringing lots more joy into my life for years to come. My girlfriend loves the sound they produce too, which is a great bonus. Powered by Denon AVR-X2700H and QED Silver Anniversary XT cables - highly recommended. Outstanding customer service from Richer Sounds throughout - Aidan P. couldn't be more helpful. You can definitely buy with confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wayne248 from Fantastic looking and awesome sound After been forced to buy new speakers after my previous ones were damaged moving home I looked at Richers website and saw these, saw they had a WhatHIFI award and purchased them straight away. I got the full speaker package, fronts, centre, rears and subwoofer and I am not disappointed. They look fantastic with the rest of my equipment and the sound quality is awesome. I can easily recommend these to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sjlowe1977 from Great speakers and look great too! I bought these recently as part of the Cinema pack and have to say they are superb. I have traditionally always been a Mission speaker advocate and have owned many pairs over the years but there are truly exceptional speakers. Ordered them on a Friday and they came on the Saturday morning (I didn't even pay extra for next day/Saturday delivery) so great service from Richer Sounds as always. I wouldn't buy my audio from anywhere else. If you are in the market for some floorstanders and/or the cinema pack then don't hesitate to buy these they are great. Richer also price matched as I managed to find them cheaper online, no quibbles at all.
