KEF Introduces Two New THX Certified Architectural Speakers

The high-impact, in-wall speakers feature KEF’s Metamaterial Absorption Technology.

Experience high-impact, immersive sound with the latest additions to KEF’s Extreme Home Theater range — the Ci5160RLM-THX and Ci3160RLM-THX.

KEF’s Ci-R Series is a direct beneficiary of the technological innovations developed for The Reference, the class-leading series that continually set the benchmark for loudspeakers and sound reproduction since its launch in 1973. With a paintable metallic grille, they seamlessly blend into any home decor and allow listeners to truly immerse themselves in sound, hearing all the details exactly as the artist intended, whether set up in large home theatres or living rooms alike.

Incorporating a 12th generation Uni-Q driver array featuring KEF’s Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT), the Ci-R Series speakers are guaranteed to deliver the best experience to every listening position in the room.

THX Certified Ultra Speakers with MAT

The Ci5160RLM-THX and Ci3160RLM-THX carry the prestigious THX Certified Ultra designation, having undergone rigorous tests in output levels, frequency response, signal-to-noise ratio, and distortion, ensuring it recreates high-impact cinema sound and best-in-class audio fidelity.

They also benefit from MAT, which is a highly complex maze-like structure that absorbs 99 percent of the unwanted sound from the rear of the tweeter, delivering a crisper, more natural treble performance.

These two new additions are designed to be discreet in appearance and engineered with best-in-class acoustic performance, delivering an immersive soundscape, while the speakers blend into the interior design. Ci5160RLM-THX and Ci3160RLM-THX are available in Aluminum Silver, an anodized silver aluminum front baffle, including tone matched Uni-Q and bass drivers. The speakers come with a paintable magnetic metal grille, which can be color-matched to the chosen interior style. A black cloth grille can be purchased as an additional accessory as well.

The Ci5160RLM-THX and Ci3160RLM-THX retail for $2999.99 and $1999.99, respectively.
