With the Q series, KEF have developed a range of high quality speakers which are ideal for stereo music listening or as part of a home cinema system.
The KEF Q700s are two and a half way floorstanding speakers with excellent performance. They are each fitted with one of KEF's point source Uni-Q drivers for medium and high frequencies and a long throw bass driver for low frequencies. The low end is further enhanced by a pair of auxiliary bass radiators.
The Uni-Q mid/high frequency speaker has a 165mm bass/mid-range driver and a 25mm aluminium dome tweeter with 'tangerine' waveguide. The low frequency long throw bass driver and auxiliary bass radiators are also 165mm diameter.
Other clever features include the link switch for choosing between mono and bi-amping. Turn it clockwise and the two terminals are linked so you can drive the speaker from one amp: anti-clockwise and the terminals are split so you can connect the high frequency and low frequency separately.
