Q Acoustics has added a new model to its award-winning 3000i loudspeaker range: the 3030i standmount speaker, 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 elegant, 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 down to 46Hz at low-end. The tweeter and mounting arrangement, meanwhile, are taken directly from the 3050i.
Despite an internal volume of more than double the 3020i bookshelf speaker – a design which contributes to the bass extension – the 3030i has a sleek design to complement rather than overwhelm its surroundings.
Point to Point P2P bracing technology maintains high cabinet rigidity and low distortion, while a bespoke floor stand provides stability while positioning the tweeter at the optimal listening height.
The 3030i is available in four cabinet colour finishes: Arctic White, Carbon Black, Graphite Grey and English Walnut.
The Q Acoustics 3030i will be available from February 2020, priced at £329 / €399 / $399.
