Hear every word
Designed for maximum vocal clarity, the days of mumbled dialogue are a thing of the past with the 3090Ci centre speaker. Designed to match the tonal quality of the 3010i, 3020i and 3050i speakers, the 3090Ci carries their smooth, detailed sound across the centre of the soundstage, for a balanced, immersive sound.
Improved cabinet for even lower distortion
At the heart of these revised speakers is a much-improved cabinet. P2P (Point-to-Point) bracing is now deployed to enhance rigidity and reduce cabinet distortion. Reducing cabinet distortion lets the drive units operate at their optimum, giving a cleaner, purer sound and more lifelike vocals.
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 3090Ci its crisp and natural sound. The tweeter unit is decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, meaning that the treble isn’t affected by vibration from the bass unit. With clarity and purity of sound at its heart, the 3090Ci is amongst the most natural-sounding centre speaker in its class.
Four finishes to suit your style
With its distinctively designed, rounded cabinets, the 3090Ci 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 AV components and TV. 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.
Hear dialogue sound as though you were there, with the Q Acoustics 3090Ci – the natural-sounding centre speaker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DrMC from Great compliment to the 3000i range I have had the 3090ci for a couple of weeks now and decided this is a great little centre speaker. I already have the 3050i towers for left and right so I am familiar with the sound the range provides. The 3090ci certainly looks great, with its rounded edges, great feel and build quality, again sits perfectly between the 3050i towers. After first setup and running the calibration on my receiver, I tried a range of sources, TV channels outputting Dolby Digital, a DTS-MA Blu-ray movie, and a range of music; from classical, movie soundtracks, heavy rock and pop music outputted using the Pro-logic ll algorithm to spread the stereo sound to all speakers. My initial findings were that while it had plenty of warmth and integrated with the 3050i towers seamlessly, I did feel the 3090ci was slightly subdued and sounded like it was sat behind a piece of wood or a pile of egg boxes. Having said this it does go plenty loud enough and retains its composed sound at all volumes. I have run the 3090ci at slightly higher volumes than I would normally do, still using a wide range of sound sources for the past two weeks or so now and so decided to re-run the calibration setup and see if the run-in period had made any difference, and I was very pleased to say it has. While I am rather sceptical about whether running in speakers actually makes significant difference, this period of running the 3090ci, or perhaps just the calibration re-run had been more successful, but now the sound was much clearer, punchier and separation was much improved through the frequencies, which it does while still retaining the warmth I wanted from the 3000i range so still integrates perfectly with the 3050i towers. To conclude, the 3090ci is an excellent mid-sized centre speaker. Certainly play about with your setup if it isn’t producing the sound you’d expect, or try a run in period of 50 hours or so as I did, and I’m certain it will produce the sound you hoped it would. I think at £179 the price point is perfect, it’s not trying to compete with larger centres in the £250 - £400 range, but in the £150 - £250 range, I doubt you could find a better centre speaker if you like the sound the Q Acoustics 3000i series produces, which I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Excellent quality for the price. I was starting to struggle with dialogue due to my age. Vocals are really clear now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bagpuss2021 from Q Acoustics centre speaker Just a quick note on the Q3090ci., it's an excellent match for my other surround speakers. Vocals are clear and crisp, an wise choice especially if you already have Q acoustics speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AndyHibberd from Top Marks I've never had a beefy centre speaker and finally I understand the hype. Films sound direct and very clear, dialogue stands out like never before and you get that true cinematic sound when pieced with the full 5.1 set. Really fun to listen to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by julian sehmi from Superb Sound at Great Price Had an old JVC 5:1 system set from years ago but the kids were complaining about the clarity of the dialogue and I had to admit I found the TV speakers were much sharper so I asked Gurpaal at RS Southgate who recommended this as a great value piece to change for my modest budget. I'm really happy with it (bar a little trickiness getting it wall mounted above the existing setup). Really punchy, great sound quality and really clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brionfire from Wow - amazing speaker, value and Richer Sounds! Bought during lockdown as my trusty old mission centre speaker finally gave up the ghost. As always Richer Sounds Exeter were amazing! Support from them working at home! Great advice. Supply issues (not Richer sounds fault) and they kept me in the loop at all times. The speaker itself wow! Tech has really moved on from the Misson (it was over 20 years old). Now how about some floorstanders to complement it......
