Q Acoustics Centre Speakers (Subwoofer ) – Q Acoustics Q B12
The QB 12 is the first Q Acoustics subwoofer to feature a 12in driver. The big long-throw driver is powered by an ultra low-distortion 220-watt Class D amplifier for tight, powerful bass response, and features a 50mm voice coil for minimal thermal compression. Equally at home with Q Acoustics’ Concept and 3000i range of stereo and centre speakers, Q B12 is designed to be equally adept at reproducing big Hollywood action moments as it is the deep, subtle textures of bass instruments.

From the subtlest nuance to volcano all-action
220 watts of Class D power driving a long-throw 12in drive unit sounds like a recipe for action. And that’s exactly what it is – no Hollywood blockbuster soundtrack features explosions too loud, too deep or too powerful for Q B12 to handle. But power is nothing without control, and Q B12 is just as comfortable describing the nuances of a double bass or an electronic kick-drum.
Strength and control
Q B12’s sealed, ‘infinite baffle’ cabinet is cleverly braced to deliver maximum stiffness to its motor system and, as a consequence, minimum influence on those deep bass sounds. Mechanical stability = aural satisfaction.
Ease, simplicity and performance
A reinforced MDF cabinet with a 36mm-thick baffle, a recessed and hidden terminal panel. Adjustable spiked feet with rubber caps. A choice of elegant, understated finishes. Q B12 is a simple and easy to position and set up as it is invigorating to listen to.
“If you love the sound of Q Acoustics’ speaker packages but covet more power, the QB12 is as good a solution as we could hope for… this is the kind of performance that should slot easily into any comparably talented speaker set-up…As long as you have the space, budget and amiable enough neighbours, we say go for it. Just be prepared to host movie nights from now on.”
What Hi-Fi?, 5 Stars
“The new subwoofer sounds bigger and deeper than previous efforts from Q Acoustics, but it’s also more effortless in its delivery. The Q B12 integrates perfectly with the 3010i speakers, creating a balanced low frequency foundation. It’s also a very responsive design, revealing plenty of speed that ensures both music and movies sound equally as good.”
