3000c series

Taking on the mantle of our most popular and affordable speaker range with ease, 3000c series features advanced driver design and trickle-down technology for a class-leading performance.


Introducing generation c

The affordable and high performance 3000c loudspeaker series builds on the formidable legacy of the 3000i - Q Acoustics’ most popular and decorated speaker series. This latest range continues the company’s unwavering track record of delivering a sonic performance and high-quality design and build way beyond its class.


5000c family

The 3000c family

The perfect entry-point into a modern audiophile world or as a cost-effective speaker upgrade, the 3000c family is comprised of the 3010c bookshelf, 3020c standmount, 3030c larger standmount, 3050c floorstander, with the 3090c centre-channel completing the line-up for a home cinema speaker set-up. Whether as a stereo or 5.1 arrangement, the 3000c series has the talent to bring your music or movies vividly to life.


Genuine innovation

This new speaker series features a C3 Continuous Curved Cone™ mid/bass driver design, first introduced in award-winning 5000 series and the M40 powered micro-tower speakers. Q Acoustics latest technical platform elevates the 3000c above its peers to deliver a sound defined by an articulate and fast mid-range, controlled but powerful bass dynamics, and nuanced and detailed high frequencies, alongside an exceptional soundstage not previously experienced at this level.

Contemporary looks

The 3000c series evolves the 3000i’s signature look and feel to reflect developing taste in interior design. Continuing Q Acoustics’ reductive design ethos and echoing the unadorned nature of the C3 profile, the 3000c is more visually minimal with no discerning joints or bolts. A new elegant one-piece driver trim, in satin nickel and satin chrome (white only) offers a sophisticated enhancement at the front of the cabinet, while all new finishes complete the range’s design elevation. Stylish magnetic grilles are supplied with all speaker models.

Finishes to match any interior

Arriving in four new modern and high-quality finishes, the 3000c series will look at home in any interior living space. The introduction of a new lighter (Pin Oak) and darker wood (Claro Rosewood) coverings, alongside new but classic Satin White and Satin Black finishes first seen in the 5000 series, emulates the contemporary design nature of this new speaker family.

Q Acoustics 3010c

A compact and discreet loudspeaker that won’t draw attention to itself - at least, not until it starts performing. If you want a small, easy-to-position speaker that sounds way bigger than it looks, this bookshelf model fits the bill (and your space) perfectly.

Q Acoustics 3020c

If you want scale in your sound but not in the size of your loudspeaker cabinet, you want the new 3020c standmount. It’s ready and able to let you experience all the power and dynamism of your favourite music, but without dominating your living space.

Q Acoustics 3030c

Sometimes you want your music to hit hard and dig deep - but that doesn’t mean you need a great big loudspeaker with a great big driver. No, it means you need the 3030c - the standmount with the greatest bass extension and low-end drive in the range.

Q Acoustics 3050c

The 3050c is the ideal floorstanding loudspeaker. It’s big enough to describe all the presence and power, as well as reveal all the detail and delicacy, that's in your music - but is elegant and well-proportioned enough to not draw attention to itself as it does so.

Q Acoustics 3090c

Projecting dialogue to the front of the biggest Hollywood action-movie soundtracks isn’t easy - but the 3090c is the centre-channel speaker to do it. Distinct, direct and with absolute positivity to its sound and presentation, this is the speaker to put you fully in the picture.

C3 Continuous Curved Cone™

A genuine advancement in elements of mid/bass driver design, the C3 Continuous Curved Cone™ profile is the result of extensive research and expert engineering to combine the bass performance benefits of a traditional straight conic cone with the high/mid-range frequency control of a flared cone.

By creating a single, smooth, continuous curve profile, the advantages are manifold. Firstly, its excellent dispersion, alongside its well-controlled frequency response, enables smoother integration with the tweeter. Deep bass dynamics are also superior, with this and tighter, damped low-end sound allowing more flexibility in placement of speakers near the wall boundaries of the listening room.


Mid/bass driver design

The game changing C3 cone is at the heart of the 3000c mid/bass design. The cone’s geometry requires exceptional motor strength for optimal performance, so substantial magnets are coupled to the voice coils. The control exercised by the large magnets ensures good dynamic response, headroom and tight bass. Apart from these benefits the large magnets also ensure that pole plate and yoke are near saturated, which reduces flux-modulation and harmonic distortion.


High-frequency driver design

Based on the tweeter design principle found in the newest Concept series, the high frequency driver unit is hermetically sealed and mechanically isolated (floating) from the baffle to prevent internal pressure modulations from within the cabinet and adjacent mid/bass driver. The inner chamber is also carefully vented for lower distortion, with a lower crossover point for seamless integration through the crossover region.


P2P™ (Point to Point) bracing

Q Acoustics P2P™ (Point to Point™) bracing used throughout the 3000c series supports the parts of the enclosure that need to be stiffened making the new enclosures exceptionally rigid, improving the focus of the stereo image and giving the soundstage more accuracy than ever before.


HPE™ (Helmholtz Pressure Equalizer)

The 3050c is, like all floorstanding loudspeakers, vulnerable to internal build-up of pressure that causes unwanted standing waves and colouration. To prevent this occurring, specially designed HPE™ (Helmholtz Pressure Equaliser™) tubes are fitted inside the cabinet to nullify internal pressure and improve frequency response.
