We are proud to announce the world-wide launch of our new Q Series loudspeakers!

 

Launched in 1991, KEF’s Q Series is our most successful speaker line. The 8th generation of the Q Series features some new tech updates derived from our Blade and Reference lines: Q Series is affordable but in its DNA lives the incredible technical and design achievements from two of the world’s most iconic loudspeakers.

 

Here’s some of tech highlights of our new Q Series:

 

Damped Tweeter Loading Tube 

Our new chisel-shaped damper reduces harshness in the lower treble region by providing a gentler termination of sound energy at the back of the tweeter.KEF Q Series Tweeter

 

New LF Driver 

Several improvements have been made to our LF driver for increased performance at higher volumes. A new cone structure reduces breakup by 10dB for improved midrange, and the longer throw and improved stiffness provides better performance at cone limits for a deep, tight bass that is perfectly matched to our Uni-Q driver.

 

New ABR 

The ABR driver has a longer throw and a new rubber suspension that allows for higher volumes with no noise issues as are common with standard ABRKEF Q950 Cutaway drivers.

 

Closed Box Uni-Q Cabinet 

The Uni-Q is enclosed in its own chamber providing better low-frequency control of the mid-range driver, while the LF drivers and ABR are enclosed in a large bass chamber for deeper and tighter bass reproduction.

 

New Crossover 

Across the line, the crossovers have been updated with new high-quality, low distortion capacitors and inductors for amazing mid-range clarity and a natural, smooth bass roll-off.

 

The Q150 and Q350 Bookshelf models feature a centrally located Uni-Q driver. By positioning the driver centrally, standing waves and internal resonances are reduced resulting in clearer, more articulate output. The bass port has also been relocated to the rear of the speaker and has been designed using Computational Fluid Dynamics to reduce mid-range leakage and LF compression, for a tighter and more energetic bass response.
