Equator Audio Research

A versatile, extraordinarily accurate monitor with digital processing.

Measuring 15" x 15" x 15" and featuring a 10" subwoofer, the Equator Q10 Reference Monitor delivers the power and accuracy of the Q Series speakers. The Q10 enclosure is constructed of 13-ply Baltic birch and is heavily braced for cabinet rigidity.

All Q Series monitors feature a Zero Point Reference coaxial design with Digitally Controlled Transducers. The CPU that resides inside each Equator monitor handles a host of formidable tasks, including matching the transducers as well as seamlessly incorporating the system's crossover approach. This unique no-slope crossover approach reduces the mid-range distortion commonly associated with conventional coaxial designs to facilitate highly accurate, natural sounding mid-range reproduction that is never harsh.

The Equator Audio Q monitors also benefit from cutting-edge Digital Signal Processing technology that helps mix engineers ensure their room is optimized for accurate monitoring. Included with every Equator Q Series monitor speaker is a software application that enables a mix engineer to manually compensate for acoustic anomalies such as issues created by speaker placement and boundary conditions within the listening environment. Along with the environmental compensation, this included software also provides extraordinary control over the monitors, including equalization, mute, solo, and phase.

Features

  • 10" LF driver
  • 1" titanium dome rear-firing compression driver
  • Coaxial design
  • 500W (LF)/200W (HF) power amplifiers
  • DSP control of crossover approach, equalization, mute, solo, and phase
  • USB port

The Q10 adapts and compensates for the eccentricities of any placing space—order one to take along today.

Comments about Equator Audio Research Q Series Q10 10" Coaxial Reference Monitor:

Both in theory and in practice the Q10's are full of good ideas, such as finely tuned transducers made even more precise by continuous DSP control (check out the YouTube videos). And the coaxial design creates a gorgeous, transparent sound field, where the speakers themselves seem to radiate in all directions. My first impression of them (after "wow") was "wide" followed by "smooth", and those two words are still very apt descriptions in my opinion.I think the most remarkable difference between the Q10's and the Adam S3X's, for example, is the high end response. While the Adams do a brilliant job of revealing the highest frequencies, to my ears they sizzle a bit when compared with the smooth yet tight performance of the Q10's. I don't miss any high-end definition with the Q10's, but somehow they're kinder to the ear, less fatiguing.I also compared the Q10's to Genelec 1032's. The 1032's are a bit punchier in the low end, and more forward in the upper mids. After listening to a variety of music from John Mayer, No Doubt, Evanescense, and the Berlin Philharmonic, I had a more difficult time deciding which I preferred, but in the end I believed I was hearing a more authentic and less exaggerated performance with the Q10's.My only real complaint is they're a bit "hissy" when powered up with no signal, which makes the apparent noise floor higher than it should be. But once the music is flowing... magic!
