Falcon Acoustics launches Q7 Mini-Monitor

If you’re bored during lockdown or simply one of those people who, rather than breaking out in a cold sweat at the very mention of Ikea, actually enjoys assembling things Falcon Acoustics has a treat in store for you. The company is launching the Q7 Mini-Monitor, an upgrade to its inaugural Q7 kit, originally designed by Malcolm Jones and sold by Falcon for many years.

The new Q7 self-assembly project comes supplied complete with Italian full “production grade” Baltic birch ply cabinets specially extended beyond the LS3/5a's cabinet size for extra bass (+2dB @ 50Hz).

The company’s new [email protected] model also features the Falcon B110 and T27 drive units employed by Falcon’s LS3/5a and a Falcon 23.2 factory-assembled pre-wired crossover, mirroring the original Malcom Jones design, but arranged on a modern multi-layer board. Cabinet baffles are veneered in a choice of natural Walnut or Rosewood and the cloth grilles are magnetically secured. High-quality speaker terminals around the back complete the specification.

The company claims that no soldering is required in the assembly and that all tools are provided, while construction is guided by an online instruction manual and Youtube video with the whole exercise taking: “as little as two hours”.

The full loudspeaker specifications include 60Hz-20kHz +/- 3dB frequency response, impedance of 15ohm, sensitivity quoted at 83dB/2.83V/m and power handling of 15-50W. The connector comprises 4mm Custom-Designed nickel-plated binding posts, the dimensions are: 190 x 305 x 230mm (WxHxD, plus 12mm for grille and binding posts) and each cabinet weighs in at 6.2kg, with an overall shipping weight of 15kg.

Tygan front grilles and Q7 Silver Badge crossover upgrade options are also available.

The Q7 Mini-Monitor is available to buy now for £995 and you can find out more about it here.
