Q Acoustics Concept 20, extremely capable bookshelf speakersDale Davies ▼ | November 16, 2018
The Concept 20 represents the start of a new era going beyond anything that Q Acoustics had achieved before.
Loudspeaker It's a beautifully styled product
The Concept 20 uses Gelcore Cabinet Construction, where two layers of MDF, are separated by a bespoke, resonance absorbing, non-setting adhesive which converts the kinetic energy and disperses it as heat. This substantially reduces distortion and allows the individual drive units to deliver their optimal performance, a pure and uncoloured sound. Even the speakers attractive brushed aluminium facia plate is not purely decorative. Its part of an assembly, which clamps a butyl rubber sheet to the front panel to reduce cabinet resonance still further in the panel facing the listener.
It is available in two beautiful multi-layered lacquered finishes in high gloss black and white. Multiple positions are possible thanks to a foam bung, which can be inserted in the rear-mounted reflex port modifying the bass response to suit positioning against a rear wall or close to a corner, to fit seamlessly into your chosen room. Its revolutionary Gelcore Construction cabinet means music lovers can enjoy genuine high end sonic performance and with the option of either lacquered gloss black, or lacquered gloss white; not only will the speakers sound amazing, they will also look beautiful.
