I have a question about the 3020i bookshelf speakers. I'm planning on purchasing these and am also purchasing an Amp that puts out 125W/Ch into 8 ohms. Can these speakers handle that? I won't be turning it up super loud.

Speakers tell you when they are not happy with higher volumes by distorting well before any damage is done.

You should be fine.

Q ACOUSTIC 3030i SPEAKERS

CONCLUSION


That these speakers can be bought for £329 startles me. They have me scratching my head that this level of quality can be had for such a low price.

Full review!

I have a question regarding the 3050i and 3030i speakers. For a new audio setup I'm looking for a nice stereo pair, preferably without subwoofer.

If I compare the frequency specs, there doesn't seem to be much difference:

3050i: 44Hz - 30kHz (+3dB, -6dB)
3030i: 46Hz - 30kHz (+/-3dB, -6dB)

The towers have a slightly higher efficiency of 91dB vs 88dB so they play a bit louder but I'm sure this will be a minor feature during normal use.

I would think that the larger volume of the 3050i would lead to a lower bass response but I'm not seeing this in the specs. Would anyone be able to compare the two or comment on the 3050i bass performance?

I'm guessing the mere 2Hz difference in mid-bass extension is due to the 3030i having larger woofers (6.5" vs dual 5" on the 3050i).

I wouldn't "trust" specs too much but your premise is true; the 3050i not only has much larger cabinet volume but twice the woofer cone area as the 3030i.

Owners in this thread who have bought the towers 3050i/3050 have been satisfied with the performance without a sub.

If you can't audition using an SPL meter and test tones I'd go with the safer bet without a sub in the equation and get the towers.
