TOUCHING THE SENSES

“SOUND-PER-POUND, these might be the best speakers we’ve ever heard.”
[Q Acoustics 1010] – What Hi-Fi? July 2006

The award winning Q Acoustics ‘1000 Series’ consists of six models: two bookshelf speakers, two floor standing designs, a dedicated centre channel speaker and a powered sub-woofer.

Every part of the speakers is bespoke, optimized specifically for each new model. The tweeters, bass/midrange drivers, magnets, cone mass, cone rigidity, crossovers, ferminal panel and fully braced cabinets are all designed with the sole purpose of creating the very best performing, affordable loudspeakers.

Each model is available in a choice of Graphite Black, Beech or Cherry finishes and all boast the same excellent, low distortion, ferro-fluid cooled, micro polyester weave tweeter. Advanced Linkwitz-Riley crossovers are used throughout, thus ensuring the smoothest response at the crossover frequencies, whilst the most stringent quality control requires every drive unit to be ‘torque mounted’ into the front baffles, the latter being rigid, low resonance, multi-radial designs up to 32mm thick!
