THE QUBE SPEAKER
A FLOOR SPEAKER THAT
WILL FILL YOUR ENTIRE ROOM
WITH REFLECTED SOUND
Traditional speakers, with speaker membranes directed straight
on, provide a concentration of direct sound straight on. This is
especially true for the treble, which, in principle, radiates from
the upper frequencies. The sound presents as duller and less
treble-rich everywhere, except for a focused point right in front
of the speakers
Paper the entire room with sound
The classic triangle for placing conventional speakers. The best place from
which to listen is known as the “sweet spot” – it is here that the sound from
the speakers meets.
With a speaker that allows the room to interact, you can
achieve sound reproduction that gives a “live” feeling everywhere.
We call this principle “Omniroom.” Refl ected sound
works together with the walls and the ceiling to diffuse sound
throughout the room. The bass and lower tones are not as
direction-sensitive and diffuse more easily, even with traditional
speakers – for this reason, it is extremely easy to place a subwoofer
in relation to where one is listening. The more directed
the sound, the greater the limitations on where in the room the
sound will be optimized.
Therefore, speakers that use refl ected sound are less sensitive
to placement. No matter where you are in the room, the
sound will be fantastic.
Except for the podium in a concert hall, an ordinary living
room is the best listening space, since it is usually decorated
with upholstered furniture, rugs, paintings, and curtains. Generally,
this room also has unadorned surfaces, like the walls and
ceiling, for sound refl ection. The variation between absorbing
and refl ecting surfaces makes a living room the perfect location
for speakers that use refl ected sound.
Classic speaker placement. The Qube diffuses sound throughout the entire room.
The Qube uses your room’s walls and ceiling to fi ll the room with refl ected
sound. No matter where you choose to listen, the sound will be amazing.
A pure, airy, listening experience
The Qube is available in a white and black
high-glass varnish ...
... or in cherry, with a champagnecolored
The Qube is a unique speaker that uses your
room to create perfect sound. It allows the sound
to work together with your walls and ceiling to
spread sound throughout the room, rather than
to one, specifi c location. This sound, known as
refl ected sound, provides a pure, airy acoustic
image, no matter where you are in the room.
The Qube functions equally well as either a
two-channel stereo or the rear speaker in a home
movie system. A bass refl ex port on its underside
permits the Qube to achieve the best possible

The Qube’s goal is to give you an optimal sound experience,
no matter where you place it; the refl ected
sound will diffuse throughout the entire room. Here
are a couple of suggestions for placing the Qube.
However, we’ve just included some of the basic placements;
you have many more options from which to
choose. Experiment with different placement options;
some may work better than others, depending on
what your room looks like and how it is furnished.
Placing your Qube speakers
- Placement in a corner increases the bass.
- Direct the Qube so that the fi rst surface the sound hits is a hard one.
- Rugs and heavy curtains will help dampen the sound.
