Rare - Collector items
The QBx 25 (“Quiet Box”) Tower is a compact and slim floorstanding loudspeaker providing
exceptional performance and value. The QBx 25 features unique cabinet construction, superior

The Quiet Box -- or QBx, as Snell calls it -- reduces vibrations for a cleaner, more distinct sound. Vibrations tend to blur, sometimes even romanticize, a loudspeaker's sound.

The QBx sound, perhaps because of the speakers' rigid construction, is best characterized as neutral. The QBx doesn't embellish music, nor is it designed solely for a soundtrack's exaggerated special effects. It possesses an accuracy prized by audio purists

drive units, 2 1/2 way design and a complex crossover, which contribute to its superior sound

QBx Technology
In an ideal speaker, the speaker cabinet is inert and resonance free. It should have smooth
contours without projections that cause reflections which degrade high frequency response. In
short, the cabinet should not negatively affect the sound of the loudspeaker. QBx (Quiet box)
refers to a number of techniques that reduce the detrimental effects that typically come from
the resonances and reflections of ordinary cabinets.

“Butterfly” grille cutout

The necessary cutout area around the tweeter is given a highly irregular contour to prevent the
irregular high frequency response that would otherwise occur. The contour expands and
contracts around the perimeter of the tweeter, creating a “butterfly” shape.

Elliptical baffle edges
The grille is mounted flush into the baffle. The baffle edges have large elliptical radiuses. This
smooths the cabinet termination, greatly reducing the edge reflections. High frequency
smoothness is preserved.

High-Loss Sandwich Baffle

The unique high loss baffle is constructed from multiple layers of wood and a high tech
adhesive. The “lossy” adhesive that laminates the two layers of speaker baffle greatly reduces
cabinet resonances, resulting in purer midrange and clean, crisp bass.

Hand-Tuned Crossover

The crossover networks were designed using sophisticated computer simulation. Final system
balance is determined by exhaustive listening tests. These networks adhere to an “in-phase” or

Linkwitz-Reilly design: time alignment and coherency are maintained through the transition
region from driver to driver.

In production, each crossover is individually tuned by technicians
to within ±0.5dB of the Master Reference, ensuring predictable performance in your home.

Drive Units

This 2 1/2 way tower uses a 1-inch black-anodized aluminum dome tweeter with a multifinned

aluminum heatsink and dual 6 1/2-inch bass units with High Definition Aerogel cones. The video-shielded driver complement provides unlimited placement options

User Review for reference:
made-in-the-USA Snell Acoustics QBx loudspeaker system

all meticulously hand-built, the old-fashioned way
Each Snell speaker cabinet, like fine furniture, is built, stained and sanded by hand. The cabinets not only have a real wood (oak) exterior, increasingly rare in speakers these days, but a 3/4-inch layer of medium-density fiberboard and then a second layer of oak on the cabinet's interior to reduce chances of warping.

In typical Snell fashion these speakers are neutral with very good voice reproduction

Their low end was tight.Their top end was very smooth but not at all dark sounding.

I would call their overall sound musical.And they could dissapear as if you were not listening to speakers,just music
They are very neutral sounding, and the imaging is incredible.

If there are speakers in this price range that don't require a center channel, these are them.

I listen to acoustic jazz, jazz/classical piano, some rock and techno. They really shine with piano, string instruments, vocals, and even horns.
