Derived from KEF’s Concept Blade project, the company’s new Q Series features a brand-new Uni-Q driver array with a new, larger high-performance vented tweeter mounted at the acoustic center of a new metal cone LF/MF driver to produce better acoustic clarity and imperceptible distortion.
The flagship floor-standing speaker, the Q900, is the first Q Series speaker in 19 years that features a brand-new eight-inch Uni-Q driver accompanied by an eight-inch aluminum LF driver and two eight-inch ABRs. The new lineup also features the return of a dipole speaker, the weighty Q800ds, as well as a 10-inch front-firing 200-W built-in Class D subwoofer with matching finishes, the Q400.
“The completely re-engineered Q Series, featuring the perfect blend of aesthetic elegances and superior sound performance, provides listeners with the high end audio experience they have come to expect from the KEF brand,” said Alec Chanin, president of KEF America. “For nearly two decades, the Q Series has been regarded as one of the finest box loudspeakers on the market and this latest evolution is certain to enhance its legacy among audio enthusiasts.”
There are nine speakers in the new KEF Q Series, making for simple and flexible system building with a particular emphasis on home theater systems—easily assembled to suit any room, set-up or budget, the company says.
