Product Information

Designed to appeal to discerning audiophiles, the Concept 500 achieves a perfect balance between art and science. It is a loudspeaker that is at once, stylish, contemporary, fine-sounding and astonishingly accurate. It couples low directivity with wide bandwidth, good sensitivity and sensible impedance. This makes the new Concept 500 both room-friendly and an easy load to drive, allowing amplifiers to deliver their best performance.

Features

  • Crossover - Great care has been taken in both the design of the crossover and the selection of high grade components, to introduce virtually zero noise and distortion.
  • Cabinet Bracing - A method, known as P2P™ (Point to Point) bracing, supports the parts of the cabinet that need to be stiffened
  • Cabinet Walls - Constructed in three separate layers and filled under pressure with a non-setting gel.
  • Specially designed Helmholtz Pressure Equalizers (HPE™) balance out these pressure irregularities

To create a stereo soundstage which gives as good an impression of width, depth and height as that found in a live performance requires high-quality drive units, a well-designed crossover and an accurately constructed cabinet. To achieve this, Q Acoustics formed a truly talented team with many years of experience in the design, engineering and manufacture of world-class loudspeakers. A combination that resulted in a state-of-the-art loudspeaker worthy of any high-end system.

Crossover

Great care has been taken in both the design of the crossover and the selection of high-grade components, to introduce virtually zero noise and distortion. The 4th-order Linkwitz-Riley topology which gives an excellent response both on and off-axis.

High-Frequency Driver

Mechanically decoupled mounting which effectively isolates the HF driver and speaker cabinet from reciprocal vibrations that would otherwise be transmitted between them.

Cabinet Bracing

A method, known as P2P™ (Point to Point) bracing, supports the parts of the cabinet that need to be stiffened to deal with low-frequency panel vibrations.

Mid/Bass Drivers

The Mid/Bass voice coil has an uncommonly large diameter of 35mm which allows increased ‘shove’ and higher power handling - as well as reducing compression.

Cabinet Walls

Constructed in three separate layers and filled under pressure with a non-setting gel, this damps the cabinet walls and converts higher frequency vibrations into heat.

Pressure Equalizers

Tall loudspeakers tend to suffer from resonances caused by unwanted pressure gradients. Specially designed Helmholtz Pressure Equalisers (HPE™) balance out these pressure irregularities.

Terminals and Rear

The rear access panel has been constructed to maintain the integrity of the Dual Gelcore™ cabinet. The Concept 500 is equipped for bi-wiring or bi-amping with terminals which can accept bare wires, spades or 4 mm banana plugs.

Stunning Finishes

The Concept 500 is available in five stunning finishes to ensure that they fit perfectly into your listening environment. Gloss Black and White finishes show Concept 500 in a minimalist form, a seamless addition in busy design environments. Dual-finish Gloss Black / Rosewood, Gloss White / Light Oak and Silver / Ebony finishes use real Italian veneers at the rear giving an understated and effortlessly stylish nod to Concept 500's high-end speaker credentials.
