Designed to make audiophile standards more affordable, the new speaker line will have a total of nine models. That will include three floor-standing speakers, two bookshelf speakers, two center-channel speakers, a dipole surround and a twin-driver, 500-watt subwoofer.
All of the new products feature new Uni-Q driver arrays, new bass drivers, and KEF Blade technologies. The end result boasts a rich, spacious sound.
That new Uni-Q MF/HF driver array uses a braced magnesium/aluminum alloy cone, KEF's Z-flex surround, and a sturdy, decoupled, die-cast aluminum chassis. At the acoustic center of the midrange cone is the same vented tweeter that endows the KEF Blade. Other features include a large neodymium magnet and a computer-optimized dome structure, as well as KEF's own "tangerine" waveguide. The bass driver uses a massive vented magnet assembly and a large, lightweight aluminum voice coil driving a light, stiff and strong hybrid cone. Other features include computer-designed crossovers, constrained layer damping panels and computational fluid dynamics to optimize acoustic integrity through the reflex ports.
