Let's face it, these days you have your choice of speakers for the home, so they really have to stand out from the crowd to be worthy of your attention, both in style and in the performance that they offer. We want the best floor standing speakers after all.\r\n\r\nThe Concept 500 Speaker from Q Acoustics certainly gets our attention. The company has been bringing new speakers to the market since 2006. This offering is designed to bring a superior live performance sound to your home.\r\nHigh-End Design Meets Sophisticated Sound\r\nThe Concept 500 speaker is the most advanced and innovative model that the company has offered yet. These high-end, high-performance floor standing speakers combine design with a dynamic, lifelike and powerful sound.\r\n\r\nThese speakers are compatible with most hi-fi systems including modern one box solutions and the sound that they deliver usually costs a lot more than what the Concept 500 sells for.\r\n\r\nThe clean minimalist design is the perfect blend of retro and modern. They will look great in any room in your house and come in your choice of white or black deep piano gloss finish, with subtle strips of Italian pale oak or deep rosewood real-wood veneer.\r\n\r\nYou don't often see speakers that look this sophisticated these days. The design is timeless. They would be just as at home in the 1970s as they are today.\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Concept 500 Speaker is Just Engineered Right\r\nQ Acoustics' attention to detail is pretty astounding. These speakers use unique Dual Gelcore construction for a three-layered cabinet configuration with the inner cabinet walls bound together by a non-setting gel.\r\n\r\nThe adhesive dissipates high-frequency vibrations, generated by the moving drivers, into heat to maintain a focused performance without any resonance.\r\n\r\nThey have also enhanced their driver technology in order to accomplish the special live sound that these bad boys deliver. The higher frequency driver is completely isolated from the cabinet and this eliminates any vibrations transmitted between them.\r\n\r\nAside from that, the mid\/bass voice coils have a larger-than-normal diameter for increased drive and power handling.\r\n\r\nIf you are an audiophile who demands the very best, you are going to be very happy with the Concept 500 speakers.
