Q Acoustics 3050i Floorstanding Speakers
The all-new, Q Acoustics 3050i Floorstanding Speakers has been created using design principles taken from Q Acoustics critically acclaimed Concept 500 Series, resulting in stunning sonic performance and beautiful aesthetics.
Key Features of the Q Acoustics 3050i Floorstanding Speakers
- Striking floor standing Speakers with twin 165mm and 22mm precision drivers
- The Q 3050i cabinet uses Point-to-Point (P2PTM) bracing techniques to reduce intrusive cabinet vibrations for a purer sound
- HPE™ technology eliminates sympathetic resonance within the enclosures by equalising air pressure within the 3050i cabinet
- Conventional terminal panel cut-outs have been removed, giving greatly improved structural integrity to the enclosures and new low profile binding posts
- Uses a 22mm decoupled High Frequency Driver with wide surround creating a wide even dispersion of stereo
LEADING TECHNOLOGY; OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE
The Q Acoustics 3050i Floorstanding Speakers boast a range of unique technologies including HPE™ and P2P™ to ensure these floorstanding speakers deliver a truly exceptional sound.
HPE™ (Helmholtz Pressure Equalizer) technology designed to convert pressure to velocity and reduce the overall pressure gradient within the speaker enclosure, has been applied to the Q 3050i to reduce cabinet resonance. This technology is perfect for taller loudspeakers that tend to resonate at a single favoured frequency.
Q Acoustics P2P™ bracing across the 3000i Series supports the parts of the enclosure that need to be stiffened making the enclosures exceptionally rigid, improving the focus of the stereo image and giving the soundstage more accuracy than in previous ranges.
HIGH-FREQUENCY DRIVER UNIT FOR AN UNALTERED SOUND
Q Acoustics 3050i Floorstanding Speakers tweeters are decoupled from the baffle via a compliant suspension system. Vibrations from the woofer, which can impair the performance of the tweeter are isolated allowing the tweeter to perform with dramatically reduced interference.
Whichever 3000i model you choose the cone is precision formed from impregnated and coated paper and teamed with a newly developed, low-hysteresis, rubber surround. The coated paper cone provides the optimum balance between stiffness and self-damping which means it can accelerate without flexing and stop very accurately without unwanted resonances.
Low profile binding posts have been incorporated into the Q 3050i with sockets deep enough to accept 4mm Banana Plugs. This floorstanding speaker can be positioned very close to a rear wall even when banana plugs rather than spades or bare wires are used.

The Q Acoustics 3050i managed to pleasantly surprise us with their performance. Even though they are considered middle-range loudspeakers they managed to perform much better than expected. Excellent pricing.
Just what I needed. Excellent midrange. Smooth highs. Controlled bass. Pairing this with the Marantz Pm6007 and the Cd6007. Articulate and musical. Living my musical fantasy.

I love the sound from these speakers. I have the 3030i bookshelfs as well, but for audio this one is amazing. Clear sound, balanced sound, no distortions and bass does not get affected even when placed in a corner or close to the wall thanks to the bung that comes along with the speaker.
