Q Acoustics Concept 20
The ‘Concept 20’ is a special loudspeaker whichgoes beyond anything that Q Acoustics has achieved before. It’s abeautifully styled product which we confidently believe delivers alevel of sonic performance previously thought impossible at itsprice point.” To achieve this extraordinary performance, QAcoustics’ design team applied scientific methodology and advancesin technology to address
the problem of cabinet resonance; long recognisedas the single biggest hurdle preventing speaker designersdelivering true ‘high end’ performance at a reasonable price. The‘Concept 20’ proves cabinet resonance need be a problem no longer.*Incorporating a ‘cabinet within a cabinet’ design, its inner andouter enclosures are bound together by a bespoke adhesive whichnever quite sets. This configuration (known as Gelcore™construction) allows the kinetic energy generated by the driveunits within the cabinet to be dispersed as heat and preventingthem colouring and degrading the
speaker’s musical output. Combine this new cabinetdesign with the Concept 20’s advanced, high dynamic, low distortiondrive units and the result is a loudspeaker which, at its price, isnothing short of sensational.
