About this project

OUR STORY

Matrix Audio was founded in Toronto, Canada by a tightly knit team that was passionate about putting the freedom in music by producing some of the most powerful portable speakers ever built.

We’ve become best known for the Qube family of speakers; coupling modern and minimalist designs with full-range high definition audio. The Qube family has been recognized multiple times by the international design community with accolades including the Red Dot Design Award, iF Design Award and more.

In just over two years our speakers have found their way into over 30 countries around the globe.

INTRODUCING QUBE+

Our goal when starting the QUBE+ was to create a speaker that has excellent sonic range, tremendous bass capability, and outstanding stereo performance on mid to high tones.

Besides amazing sound quality and gorgeous aesthetics we also wanted to ensure no features were left out. We truly believe the QUBE+ encompasses all that one could want from a portable speaker.

So far we have completed our designs, prototyping, final testing and we are now ready for tooling and mass production.

The below comparison checklist shows how the QUBE+ stacks up against the competition.  

When building the QUBE+ we wanted to keep the same gorgeous aluminum housing and strip it down to the core.

We tightly squeezed in 4 full-range high-performance stereo drivers to the front.

Each driver has an exceptional 3 Watt output.

We complimented the 4 full-range high-performance drivers with 2 passive subwoofer dishes in the back, for that extra kick.

We power the QUBE+ with a dynamic amplifier and an impressive 3000mAh lithium-ion battery that has the ability to charge out if your device is ever running low.

Simply tap and pair! The QUBE+ is equipped with the latest NFC technology so pairing has never been easier. 

We also included the latest Bluetooth 4.0 chipset to establish the strongest connection possible and most efficient use of battery

To really enjoy the freedom of your music everywhere we’ve topped off the QUBE+ by making it both water and sand proof up to IPX5.
