The quality of a speaker is no less important just because it’s out of sight – in fact, with ceiling-mounted units, it can be more so. Designed to smoothly integrate and architecturally match with existing downlighting sharing the same size bezel, KEF’s trademark Uni-Q® technology has a decisive performance advantage in these applications, because each point source driver array evenly disperses the sound, ensuring a smooth frequency response over a large area to create a spacious three-dimensional soundscape with genuine texture and depth.
With a two-way Uni-Q driver of 100mm (4in.), the Ci100QR is as satisfyingly musical to hear as it is neat in appearance.
