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.

Uni-Q driver array

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.


Advanced bass technologies

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).


Total system design

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.
