KEF Ci160QR In-Ceiling Speaker
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 160QR makes use of KEF's critically acclaimed 'sit anywhere' Uni-Q Driver array. This configuration sees the tweeter placed into the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone, allowing the sound to disperse evenly and widely throughout the room. This technology combined with KEF's Ultra Thin Bezel design allows for the best possible sound quality from a highly compact speaker with practically no visible rim around the outside. \ to position the speakers where you please.
• UTB™ Ultra-Thin Bezel
• 160mm (6.5in.) Uni-Q driver array
• 19mm (0.75in.) Aluminium dome tweeter and ‘tangerine’ waveguide
• Gold plated spring loaded binding posts
