High-performance on-wall mounted speaker can be easily mixed and matched into immersive, stereo or multi-room audiophile installations

The QCI range is designed with the same high standards and attention to detail as Tannoy’s professional and hi-fi loudspeakers. They deliver high fidelity sound that is natural and detailed. They have the same sonic signature and can be easily mixed and matched to make a stereo, surround or multi-room audiophile system.

Designed and engineered in the UK, the full range QCI A1-BL comprises a single 5″ Glass Fibre driver and high-excursion rubber surround. Capable of handling up to 240 Watts the QCI A1 is easy to drive and suits a wide variety of amplifiers and applications. The QCI A1-BL features the Tannoy Dual Concentric Driver technology.
