KEF Ci3-80QT motorised in-ceiling speaker

The two-way Ci500AW combines 70W power handling and 87dB sensitivity for a maximum output of 105dB.

A 130mm (5.25in.) polypropylene bass/mid driver working in conjunction with an Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) for increased low frequency output, is partnered by a 25mm (1in.) soft dome tweeter. The white, moulded ABS enclosure and stainless steel grille are easily paintable.

The Ci Series Ci500AW is an indoor/outdoor all-weather loudspeaker with an integral, pivoting mounting bracket.
Utilising a 25mm (1in.) soft dome tweeter partnered by a long-throw 130mm (5.25in.) polypropylene bass/mid driver working in conjunction with an Auxiliary Bass Radiator for increased low frequency output from this closed box design.

The white, moulded ABS enclosure and stainless steel grille are paintable, and along with the drivers, terminals and mounting bracket are weather-resistant, making positioning of this loudspeaker, even in the harshest environments like patios or even ocean-going yachts, extremely versatile.

The two-way, 3 driver Ci500AW combines 70W power handling and 87dB sensitivity, with a frequency response (±3dB) of 60Hz - 20kHz and a maximum output of 105dB.

The most elegant design solution to the perennial problem of where to place the all-important front speakers in a high-end home theatre installation, the motorised Ci3-80QT purrs down into position from the ceiling. With a 75mm (3in.) Uni-Q® array flanked by a pair of long-throw bass drivers of the same size, it combines Uni-Q’s exceptionally wide dispersion characteristics with fluent and accurate response right across the frequency range.

Whispered or shouted, on-screen dialogue and vocals become transparently clear, subtly nuanced and as perfectly located as the speakers themselves.
