Q Acoustics 5020

Designed by a young group of brilliant British designers to offer sound quality way beyond its size or price group. It is a notably compact bookshelf speaker with a modest footprint - which means it’s ideal for those environments where space is at a premium but the desire for full-scale audio excitement (as well a visual gratification) is strong. 


Mid / Bass Driver Design 

At the heart of the ground-up mid/bass driver design is the C3 Continuous Curved Cone™. The cone’s geometry requires good motor strength for optimal performance. Substantial magnets are coupled to large voice coils to increase motor strength – the result is a 50% increase in power handling and control over a comparable driver with 25.4 mm voice coil. The result is an improvement in the dynamic range of the speaker, especially in the bass region. 

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.

C 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 clear. Its excellent dispersion, alongside its well-controlled frequency response and reduced harmonic distortion, enables smoother integration with the tweeter. Deep bass dynamics are also superior, with this and tighter, damped low-end sound allowing more flexibility in in placement of speakers near the wall boundaries of the listening room.

The 5000 series highlights a new terminal panel features metal securing nuts for low contact resistance and compatibility with 4 mm plugs, wires or spade tags. The terminals are very low profile to keep plugs close to the speaker back face, providing a tidy appearance and enabling the speaker to be placed closer to the back wall if required.


Verdict: The new mid-range Q Acoustics 5020 Series speakers are ideal for small to medium rooms and a mid-range audio system. The innovations built into the 5000 Series are a definite step up from the 3000 Series, especially regarding the crossover between the woofer and tweeter. The soundstage is focused and the bass is as tight as a drum. To my ears, these new speakers aren’t too far off reaching the performance levels of Q Acoustics’ more expensive Concept Series. For anyone looking to upgrade from entry-level standmount or bookshelf speakers, the Q Acoustic’s 5000 Series is a bargain. There’s a lot of bang for your buck with these new speakers and I look forward to hearing how the floorstanding 5040 speakers perform. Highly Recommended.
