The latest addition to the family, the Q3 flaunts its pedigree
inside and out.
The Q3 achieves a 90dB efficiency rating, setting a new standard
for moderately-sized, full-range loudspeaker performance, by incorporating the Q
design platform for ideally engineered loudspeaker enclosures with a new and
remarkably efficient 7” Nano-Tec® driver.
Being very reminiscent of the larger Q5, one comes to expect that it is
merely a scaled-down version of the same speaker. In many respects this is
accurate; the MBe-1 high frequency driver, the continuous curve of our
diffraction minimizing baffle, and the substantial collar-locking isolation foot
are among the many things that the two models share.
However, because the dimensions and layout of the boxes differ, as
well as the driver behavior and resultant crossover implementation, the Q3 has
different critical points and frequencies of resonances.
To address this, a modified version of the damping apparatus
employed in the Q5 is applied in specific areas of need. Varying levels of force
are applied to multiple thicknesses of damping materials to affect the
elimination of distortion-causing resonance across the entire audio band.
Shot with a 40-megapixel medium format camera and one of the
sharpest lenses ever produced, the Macro 90mm f/4 Schneider Apo-Symmar, the
slightest flaw becomes highly conspicuous.
Aside from color correction and resizing, this image hasn’t been
manipulated or edited in any way, presenting a highly accurate picture of
unrivaled fit and finish inherent in all of our products.
