KEF Compact Floorstanding Speaker. Uni-Q driver array: 1 x 5.25" uni-q, 1x1" vented dome, 1 x 5.25" LF & 1 x 5.25" ABR. Colour Black SOLD AS PAIR
The most compact of the Q Series floor standers, the Q500 performs outstandingly for a speaker of its size. With a new generation Uni-Q MF/HF array paired with a new driver of 130mm (5.25in) in diameter of equal size, and two matching ABRs, the Q500s deliver a phenomenal audiophile performance, with all the clarity, fluidity and impact of much larger speakers.
Sweet, spacious and true, wherever you sit.
Thanks to the latest computer modelling techniques, years of painstaking development and a dash of design genius, the new iteration of the Uni-Q concept packs a formidable complement of design innovations. Based on the state-of-the-art HF driver developed for Concept Blade, the Q boasts a much larger (25mm/1 in. dome) tweeter for increased sensitivity and distortion-free power handling. It plays as loud as it plays true.
Deeper, tighter and more accurate bass.
Featuring rigid new aluminium cone technology just like the Uni-Q array, the Q Series advanced bass driver is a tour de force in its own right. A die-cast aluminium chassis rigidly locates the high efficiency vented magnet assembly to prevent unwanted resonance, and the large (50mm) voice coil ensures impressive power handling. Its musicality is impeccable: seductively tuneful and well controlled, and on the floor standing models, complemented by dedicated front-firing auxiliary bass radiators (ABRs).
A holistic approach with no compromises.
The performance envelope of these sensational new drive units is so generous that the signal needs minimal intermediation - simple first order crossovers are all that's required, as you can tell from the transparency of the sound and the inaudible fluent transitions.
