KEF Ci160QL in-ceiling/in-wall speaker
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.
When designing and engineering their range of in ceiling and in wall loudspeakers, KEF retained the philosophy of 'hiding your speakers, not your sound' in order to offer the home audio enthusiast the best possible sound achievable within a discrete and almost invisible aesthetic. The Ci series is able to deliver a phenomenally accurate response, complete with the three-dimension stereo sound imaging you'd expect from high-quality conventional loudspeakers.
The Ci160QL features KEF's renowned 'sit-anywhere' Uni-Q driver array, a sophisticated system that sees the tweeter aspect of the unit placed within the acoustic centre of the high-quality bass/midrange driver cone. This means that the tweeter and woofer work together to act as a single opint source, thus dispersing the sound evenly across a wide stereofield throughout the room. This intricate tweeter/woofer design is used in conjunction with KEF's discreet Ultra Thin Bezel (UTB) design, allowing for a non-obtrusive profile with a phenomenally slim visible rim around the speaker.
All of KEF's Ci loudspeakers have been designed to offer a quick and easy-to-install experience so that once the cable is run and the cavity is cut into your wall or ceiling, you can be listening to your favourite music in less than a few minutes.
