Q Acoustics expands 3000i range with new standmount loudspeaker
British audio specialist Q Acoustics has added a new model to its award-winning 3000i loudspeaker range . The 3030i standmount speaker is, says the company, “engineered to provide more powerful bass performance in a conveniently compact size.”
The 3030i slots into the range between the 3020i bookshelf speaker and 3050i floorstander. While retaining the compact appearance of a standmount speaker, it derives its woofer design from the much larger and more powerful 3050i floor standing model.
This 165mm (6.5”) woofer, featuring a new motor with copper clad aluminium windings, has been optimised for use in a smaller standmount-style cabinet, allowing the 3030i to go right down to 46Hz at low-end. The tweeter and mounting arrangement are taken directly from the 3050i to deliver a quality high-frequency performance.
Even with an internal volume of more than double the 3020i bookshelf speaker – a design which contributes to the bass extension – the 3030i is still designed to fit into rather than dominate its environment.
Point to Point P2P™ bracing, technology first introduce in the Concept 500 speaker, maintains high cabinet rigidity and low distortion, and the bespoke floor stand provides excellent stability while positioning the tweeter at the optimal listening height. The 3030i comes in four cabinet colour finishes: Arctic White (pictured), Carbon Black, Graphite Grey and English Walnut.
The Q Acoustics 3030i will be available from February 2020, priced at £329
