KEF iQ7 Speakers

KEF iQ7 Speakers

KEF has a long history, as far as I can remember they where there. In the 80’s you mostly got 4 choices of speakers (at least in Canada): KEF, B&W, Quads and Paradigm. A lot of friends of mine bought the reference line at this time (mainly on the used market but who cares). I have a vivid memory when I bought a pair, this was the time they introduced the coaxial driver; tweeter in the centre of the midrange driver. I’ve listened to a lot of speakers at that time and bring home a pair of C25/SW200 mini-monitor & passive subs package. They had the dynamics I was looking for at that time and their coaxial drivers were not fine tuned. I was 15, worked hard to buy them but still have them today although heavily modified. To my amazement, I haven’t found anything below 2000$ that sound better.

Specifications :

  • 6th Generation Uni-Q array with Neodymium magnets
  • Improved “Titanium” finish, “long throw”160mm (6.5in) Uni-Q driver with redesigned 19mm (0.75in)
  • Aluminium dome tweeter.
  • Full 3 way floorstanding design
  • Reference Series inspired (fully curved cabinet design)
  • Improved Crossover design and Bi-Wire terminal panel.
