Q Acoustics 2010
Q Acoustics will introduce its 2000 speaker range in October, with prices ranging from £100 to £650

The all-new 2000 Series of speakers will be available from Q Acoustics from October. There are two bookshelf speakers, a floorstander, centre speaker, subwoofer and two 5.1 packages.

Tony Jones, category manager at Q Acoustics, modestly claims the 2000 Series will be "the best affordable loudspeakers ever produced".

Every part of the new speakers is bespoke, says Jones, with an improved tweeter, bass/midrange drivers, magnets, cone materials and magnets.

All 2000 speakers use a 25mm ferro-fluid coiled tweeter with a micro polyester weave dome which is isolated from the front baffle. The cone material of the new bass/midrange drivers is a paper/Mica mixture.

More after the break

Finite Element Analysis was used to create cones with an exceptionally frequency roll-off, says Q Acoustics.

And laser spectometry was employed to identify and then minimise cabinet resonances by using thicker panels, internal bracing and damping materials.

The Model 2070 subwoofer is a DSP-driven system with Class D ampliification. The sub's twin 17cm drive units are driven by two matched mono amplifiers, producing a combined 140W.

Available as standard in traditional Graphite Black and Walnut finishes, all the 2000 models can also be bought in Piano Gloss black and white finishes for a small extra cost.
