1. Introducing Q Series Home Theatre

Q Series takes cutting-edge acoustic technology from other ranges, such as Blade and R Series, to a wider selection of people. Representing exceptional value, Q Series unlocks detail and depth in whatever you choose to listen to.

2. Q Series and Kube Subwoofers – A Perfect Match

For those wanting to add extra detail and depth to their cinematic experience, each package can be upgraded to a 5.1 Home Theatre package with the addition of a Kube subwoofer. The Kube 12b, Kube 10b, and Kube 8b subs are paired with each of the Q Series home theatre bundles to ensure that our speaker packages are perfectly matched.

Subwoofers don’t just play low and loud - pairing a Kube subwoofer with your home theatre speakers will add detail and texture and will ‘fill out’ your listening experience.

3. Optimising Room Acoustics

How do the room acoustics impact the audio quality in a home theatre system?

The acoustics of any home theatre space can greatly affect the enjoyment of watching a film. The key to perfecting the room acoustics is getting the right balance of sound absorption in your space. Sound can become unclear and details are indistinguishable in a room that has minimal sound-absorbing materials, whilst too many soft furnishings or material can deaden the sound and the audio becomes lifeless. 


How can I address any room acoustics issues in my home theatre space?

Whilst the subject of room acoustics for dedicated home theatre rooms can be highly complex and best dealt with by a specialist installer, there are a few simple steps you can take at home to improve the acoustic qualities of your space.


As sound waves reflect off flat, smooth surfaces like glass tables or large windows, one of the easiest fixes is to simply reduce the number of reflective surfaces – fabric curtains, upholstered furniture or carpeting can improve your room acoustics design significantly.


It is also wise to consider the positioning of the speakers in your room as this can also affect the entire sound image. Read our blog piece on rear-ported speaker placement for more recommendations.
