Are Q Acoustics 3020i a good match for the Sprout100?

Hi all,

I’m Giovanni, from Italy, and this is my first post in this great community. I have read dozens and dozens of thread till now, all very useful for me!

I’m about to be a future owner of a Sprout100 and I’m currently searching for good and compact bookshelf loudspeakers.

Q Acoustics 3020i seems very good to me. They are smaller in height than Elac Debut B5.2 or B6.2, which are the direct “competitor” in my list.

Do you think Q Acoustics are good for the Sprout 100?

I copy/paste here the specs for convenience:

  • Enclosure type: 2-way reflex
  • Bass Unit: 125 mm (5 in)
  • Treble Unit: 22 mm (0.9 in)
  • Frequency Response (+3 dB, -6 dB): 64 Hz – 30 kHz
  • Nominal Impedance: 6 Ω
  • Minimum Impedance: 4 Ω
  • Sensitivity (2.83 Vrms@1 m): 88 dB
  • Stereo Amplifier Power: 25 - 75w
  • AV Receiver (2 ch. driven): 50 - 75w
  • Crossover Frequency: 2.4kHz
  • Effective Volume: 6.1 L (372 cu in)
  • Dimensions W/H/D: 170 x 278 x 282 mm (6.7 x 10.9 x 11.1 in)
  • Weight (per speaker): 5.5 kg (12.1 lbs)

Thank you very much!

Welcome, Giovanni!

I think these speakers would work very well with Sprout.

Thank you @Elk!
So I guess that is not a problem if Sprout100 delivers 100 watts per channel at 4 Ohms, when Q Acoustics has 75 watts maximum power, right?
I don’t have a strong knowledge in electronics, but I know that it could be a problem when an amplifier is too weak in power in comparison to the loudspeakers.
This is instead the opposite case and I’m searching a confirm that it is a right match.


It is perfectly fine if the amplifier can produce more power than the speaker can handle. Just do not turn the volume up to 100%.

You would never do this anyway as it would be unbearably loud. :slight_smile:
