Hello Juanc81Will the 3000 series stands work for the Concept 20 bookshelf speakers?
Steve, when will the Concept center speakers be available in the US?Hello Juanc81
Thanks for considering Q Acoustics.
The Concept 20 will not fit onto the 3000 Series stand.
Each pair of 3000ST stands come complete with two pairs of dedicated top plates. One pair for the 3010 model and one pair for the 3020 model. Because these top plates have a curve which follows the design of the speakers, they are not suitable for the Concept 20.
Obviously, the Concept 20 will work extremely well on any good, rigid stand with a flat top plate of a suitable size. However, if you are considering choosing the Concept 20, I strongly recommend you also stretch to the matching Concept 20 stands. I know they are $250 per pair, but they truly unleash the full potential of the speakers.

Zorba was VERY skeptical of Q Acoustics prior to his current continuing trial.Member review of Concept 20, 3020i, and more!
Hope the cruise was a good one Geoff. Are you still planning on keeping the stands? I am just curious as they sure look interesting. Don't have the funds for stands right now, but may look closer to the Q-Acoustic stands when funds allow.Zorba was VERY skeptical of Q Acoustics prior to his current continuing trial.
His conclusions match my own, but I only tested the Concept 20s...almost done with them.
My friend liked them so much he's buying them to replace his Andrew Jones Pioneers which were found significantly wanting after he tried the C20s at his house while I was on a 3 week vacation.
Funny you should ask.Hope the cruise was a good one Geoff. Are you still planning on keeping the stands? I am just curious as they sure look interesting. Don't have the funds for stands right now, but may look closer to the Q-Acoustic stands when funds allow.
Thanks for the info Geoff. I am not in the market for speakers right now as I have the new Chanes A2.4's across the front. I also have Jon's 24" HiVi stands. Was just thinking down the road. Got a set of Bi-Poles for rears. Not really a HT guy, but I do watch a movie here and there. So far, the Chanes are sounding better and better!Funny you should ask.
Just the other night my 31 year old daughter was leaving and bumped the lightweight wooden stand my LX16 was on and down it went.
Speaker is fine but I'm thinking the VERY substantial, and good looking, Q Acoustics Concept stands will be staying!
Much more stable and I'll do the unmentionable and VELCRO the damned LX16s to them!
Currently comparing the C20s to my old B&W CM1 Concept 90s that recently a B&W representative on the B&W thread still represent their signature sound.
The sound signatures are virtually identical so at the moment I can confidently say that if you like the $550/pair B&W 686s you should be tickled with the $430/pair Q Acoustics Concept 20s...Zorba's review might lead one to believe that they might be equally happy with the $250/pair Q Acoustics 3020s!
Most owner's manuals I've read would have you leave the receiver at 8 ohms.Hi,
I just found this thread in our forum. I am realy glad to hear Q Acoustics are now available here in the US.
I'm pretty sure I will pull the Trigger on those soon.
I still got one question. Most of your Speakers are rated 6 OHM.
So how do I set my Reciever (Yamaha RX 1040). 4 Ohm or 8 Ohm ?
That'll be a great system but I like my rear surrounds at ear level when standing as it adds significant height to the sound and the sound is less localized than if the tweeters were at ear level when seated.I'm thinking of going 3050s 4x plus the Center just bought a HSU ULS15-MKII.
I agree. That's why I haven't decided yet about going 5.1 as described orThat'll be a great system but I like my rear surrounds at ear level when standing as it adds significant height to the sound and the sound is less localized than if the tweeters were at ear level when seated.

going 7.1 with 4 bookshelfs the center and the two 3050s
I still have also not yet decided on classic 7.1 vs 5.1.2
Great. Thanks for your answer. Can I also use the 3020s with your mounting bracket as FrontHeight Speakers for a 5.1.2 SetUp ?Hello Jubei-1
Many thanks for considering Q Acoustics speakers.
We completely agree with gajCA in this instance. The HSU subwoofer will work perfectly with all the Q Acoustics models and also there would be no point in using floorstanding 3050s for the 'rear' channels. Bookshelf 3020s will do an excellent job.
Hi Jubei-1Can I also use the 3020s with your mounting bracket as FrontHeight Speakers for a 5.1.2 SetUp ?
