T100 Ultra Thin Home Theater
As one of the world's thinnest high performance home theater systems, the T100 - 5.1 home theater system combines several landmark innovative driver technologies incorporated into cabinets only 35mm thin. These speakers can be mounted on the wall (bracket and hardware included) or can be placed on their included desk stands. Bespoke floor stands are available which adjust the internal crossover performance to account for stand mount use (sold separately as T Series Floor Stands).
Slim Speaker, Serious Sound
KEF’s revolutionary T Series is in a different league from any low profile speaker you’ve ever heard.
As one of the world’s thinnest high performance home theatre systems, the new T Series combines several landmark innovations: a radical new ultra-low profile bass and midrange driver, and a large, fully vented new tweeter. By incorporating both in cabinets only 35mm (just over 1.25in.) deep, the T Series brings you all the pleasures of true audiophile quality sound in a speaker that perfectly complements the aesthetics of the latest flat screen TVs.
Ultra-slim Bass Driver
Clean, forceful response that brings the action vividly to life.
Instead of a cone, the radical new twin-layer bass and midrange unit has a flat diaphragm whose rigidity throughout the frequency range is maintained by very fine stiffening ribs, with the driver as a whole acting as a stressed member to help eliminate any unwanted resonance from the slim cabinet. The resulting response is as clean, accurate and distortion-free as a quality conventional speaker, with none of the bulk.
In addition to minimising the height of the magnets, we placed the entire suspension outside the magnet system so that it adds nothing to its height. Whether you opt for the standard satellite and centre speakers or the larger models with additional bass/midrange drivers, the result is an exceptionally shallow unit that allows the enclosure to have the same installed depth as current flat screen TVs without compromising acoustic integrity in the slightest. Lush yet well controlled, it’s the kind of performance that brings soundtrack effects to life with a real sense of drama.
Large Vented Tweeter
A warm, natural sound that’s so real you feel you’re there.
The generous size of the sophisticated new 25mm (1in.) vented tweeter specially developed for the T Series allows exceptionally accurate reproduction, especially of the human voice. And silken, effortlessly pure high notes. The clarity is outstanding, even played loud.
KEF’s unique ‘tangerine’ waveguide helps to disperse the sound image evenly throughout the room. The combined effect is remarkable: you find yourself immersed in a dense three-dimensional sound picture that completely engages you with what’s happening on screen.
AmazingThe sound great and look great. Exactly what I needed to fit in with a new 65 inch TV. Sub puts out great low end. Was not expecting as much due to their size but they really fill out the room.
Stylish speakers with impressive soundThese are a great set up speakers, with excellent sound and a sleek design. During my research, I learned that these speakers need a "breaking in" period of roughly 50 to 60 hours to obtain optimal sound. I loved these speakers when I first installed them, but have notice a richer sound the more I used them. Highly recommend them.
Great Product at a great priceBought these to go with my LG 55" OLED installed in a 16 x 12 room. Wall mounted they compliment the LG's thin screen perfectly and extremely pleased with sound quality.
Great soundSo far so good with this system! We moved into a new house and in wall speakers were not possible. My wife hated the bulky wall speakers that came with the house so off I went searching for a compromise. Stumbled upon these and we could not be happier. They look great mounted on the wall (nice and slim) and the sound is amazing for how small they are. I would definitely recommend this setup.
Slim Sleek and clean. Really Impressed and PleasedI really amazed by the design and the sound clarity of these slim ladies. Set it up on my living room and they look incredible on the wall and sound better then they look! The sound is very natural and extremely crisp and clear. The quality and sound balance from such thin speakers are a wowy factor. Subwoofer is amazing its vibrating pleasingly. Highly recommended
Great buy-exactly what I'd been looking forThe build on these speakers are awesome. Nothing extraneous. Installation was very easy. These are truly a slim line speaker which do not protrude past my 2016 wall mounted 4K TV. Sound is clear and strong. They are not broken in yet but I expect they'll only get better. I would highly recommend these speakers if you're looking for something that won't mount past the surface of the TV.
Home Theater At It's FinestThe speakers are high quality and sound is surrealistic! Though I was skeptical about the sound quality in such a small speaker but it failed to NOT amaze me! Great product and great price. I recommend this to everyone.
Love the speaker But..The speakers looks great and sounds is great. However, I wish the subwoofer would have an option to stay-on without going to standby mode or have lower threshold to go into standby mode. When I use the system in the evening with the volume set slightly lower while the sound source also have low volume, the subwoofer will go into standby mode. I have tried various settings in the receiver to reduce the issue, but I am yet to be able to completely eliminate it. It works great if the volume is set to 50% or more on the reciever.
best speakers for home theaterbought these wondering how it is how to perform given its size.
to my surprise these set of speakers are far better than my current panasonic speakers.
No noise. crystal clear sound. And center speaker is awesome.
I am really happy with T105 system.
ImpressiveHonestly I did not know what to expect from these speakers given the unique slim driver etc. But the sound is amazing for their size. There is a slight break-in period, but once they are off and running the sound is crisp and clear.

With five deceptively compact model T101s as front and rear satellites as well as the centre channel, plus the C4 subwoofer, the T100 system is powerful enough to fill most normal rooms with a compellingly detailed 3D sound image. As easy to set up as they are on the eye, they make the perfect entry level surround sound system for the latest generation of flat screen TVs.

|The T Series speakers have a depth of merely 35 mm, enclosing an ultra-slim high performance driver. Picking up the trend of TVs coming onto the market with increasingly slim designs, their svelte silhouette and elegant appearance result in a harmonious overall picture when placed next to a flat-screen TV whilst retaining high fidelity sound quality. Thanks to their technical features, the speakers produce a three-dimensional sound field that perfectly underlines the events on screen.|
