“Sit anywhere” Uni-Q sound
The Uni-Q driver array places the tweeter in the centre of the midrange and bass cone, bringing the acoustic ideal of a single point source closer than ever. The result, enhanced by KEF’s ‘tangerine’ waveguide over the tweeter, is a more accurate three-dimensional sound that’s dispersed evenly throughout the room.
New System Design
Putting the Uni-Q driver in its own sealed cabinet reduces the load on the cone and increases clarity and detail while delivering cleaner bass. Midrange clarity is enhanced by driver improvements that mean the DC blocking capacitor to be eliminated from the crossover, allowing a more natural roll-off between drivers.
Tweaking the tweeter
A word about drums and bass
With the addition of the damped tweeter loading tube providing a gentle termination of sound produced from the back of the tweeter, lower treble performance is improved dramatically and a new low-distortion inductor on the crossover provides cleaner bass.
The Q Series reproduces the nuances of bass instruments with ease. With a larger roll surround and new suspension KEF drivers produce cleaner bass at high volumes.
A new cone structure improves midrange clarity and an enhanced Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) with a new surround and rear suspension enhances bass quality.
Beefier LF drivers and ABRs
Featuring a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) port design with the port repositioned to the rear of the speaker, clarity is improved by reducing the audibility of the midrange leakage through the port.
Low-frequency (LF) drivers now have a larger roll surround, along with a new suspension to produce cleaner bass at high volumes. A new cone structure improves midrange clarity, and an enhanced Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) with a new surround and rear suspension delivers better controlled and more impressive bass.
A rhapsody in ebony and ivory
The sculpted Q Series finish epitomises our approach with seamless, sleek cabinets unblemished by visible fittings and joins. Q Series speakers are coated with a fine satin finish in black or white with matching driver colours.
“KEF-høyttalerne er nok de virkelig stjernene i dette oppsettet med sin livlige og superfokuserte spillestil, men Marantz-receiverens forsterkerdel holder hele tiden kontroll på begivenhetene. Der konkurrentene kun skraper på overflaten, greier Marantz/KEF å grave frem detaljene, og formidler musikken med kropp og sjel. En skikkelig ”killer combo” med testens definitivt beste lyd!”
