KEF is a highly renowned, multi-award winning loudspeaker manufacturer whose high quality products can be found all over the world. KEF began in Maidstone Kent in 1961 by electrical engineer, Raymond Cooke. KEF is named after Kent Engineering & Foundry, which occupied the KEF site previously. Raymond Cooke was created OBE by Queen Elizabeth II in 1979. KEF have produced products for the BBC, and have a vast range of products at many different price points.
The newly developed Q Series from KEF builds upon the high sonic and aesthetic standards set by its predecessor, seeing improvements across essentially all of the internal componentry and a smoother more luxurious finish.
KEF's world-famous Uni-Q driver technology can be found at the heart of each Q series speaker, now with the implementation of improved dampening of the tweeter loading tube. This is engineered to offer a soft termination of any unwanted sound that may otherwise be produced from the rear of the tweeter module. Lower-end high frequency performance is dramatically improved while the new low-distortion inductor found on the crossover guarantees a cleaner, more controlled bass response than previous KEF models and speakers from competitor brands in the same price point and above. The Q Series' low frequency drivers possess a larger roll surround and a new spider suspension to guarantee that the high performance bass response of the Q series loudspeaker is not compromised at higher volumes.
Combining true engineering prowess with luxurious design, the Q series is available in a soft-touch satin black or satin white finish, while its full aesthetic profile boasts a minimalist and premium appearance with seamless, sleek cabinets that do not show any visible fittings or joins.
