Q Acoustics Concept 500: $5999.99/pair
This two-way, three-driver floorstander combines a 1" microfiber soft-dome tweeter with two impregnated/coated-paper-cone 6.5" mid-woofers, the three arranged in a vertical D'Appolito configuration. The Concept 500's 45.3"-tall enclosure is made of triple layers of MDF separated by a proprietary nonsetting gel; resonances are further tamed by what Q calls Helmholz Pressure Equalization (HPE), in which tuned tubes are added to the cabinet interior. The crossover is a fourth-order Linkwitz-Riley type. Played in TJN's medium-large listening space, an orchestral soundtrack recording "sounded superb through the Concept 500s, with excellent imaging, convincing depth, and a remarkable sense of space surrounding the performers, particularly the chorus." With other recordings, Tom noted an absence of obvious colorations, but did point out that bass response "wasn't quite as punchy, powerful, and deep as I've heard from a few other speakers in my room." Reporting from his test bench, JA noted a "usefully higher than average" sensitivity of 89.2dB, and opined that the Concept 500's bass is "optimized more for definition than weight." His conclusion: "I was impressed by the Concept 500's measured performance."
