Q Acoustics new 3000i loudspeaker series delivers true hi-fi for the home at an affordable price. Building on the success of the original 3000 series, the new range features innovative audio and design technology taken from the company’s high-end flagship Concept 500 loudspeaker to significantly improve on an award-winning audio performance.
Whether looking for an effective stereo upgrade to a hi-fi system, compact bookshelf speakers for tight spaces or floorstanders for larger rooms, the new range caters for all budgets and living spaces. The series consists of the 3050i large floorstander, the compact 3010i and the mid-sized 3020i bookshelf speakers.

The original 3000 series delivered an open, realistic and powerful soundstage typical of more expensive speakers, winning multiple awards and five star reviews. Through significant upgrades, both sonically and aesthetically, Q Acoustics has managed to further enhance this lifelike and dynamic sound.
To deliver a larger-scale sound, the 3010i and 3020i bookshelf models have been designed slightly taller and 25% deeper than its predecessors. This increase in physical volume allows the low-end frequencies to be extended for more powerful bass sounds that still belie these speakers’ diminutive size.
The 3000i series also boasts a fresh elegant design, arriving in four stylish premium finishes – Graphite Grey, English Walnut, Carbon Black or Arctic White – and enhanced with an attractive chrome finish around each driver to fit seamlessly into any interior style.
Q Acoustics’ engineers recognize that a meticulously designed enclosure can reduce the structural vibrations that can adversely affect the sonic performance. Taking P2P™ (Point to Point) bracing first employed in the $5,999.99 Concept 500 loudspeakers, the new 3000i range now features internal support in areas of the cabinet that need stiffening, including an extra precision-cut top damping panel. The result is a more focused, accurate and low distortion fidelity.
The 3050i also benefits from innovative audio technology first designed for the company’s flagship floorstander. Tall loudspeaker enclosures are vulnerable to increased internal pressure caused by standing waves. These generate unwanted resonances that colour the sound. Q Acoustics’ engineers have employed specially designed HPE™ (Helmholtz Pressure Equaliser) Tubes inside the 3050i’s cabinet to eliminate these performance-effecting vibrations and maintain a transparent soundstage.
