Description

THX® Certified Ultra in-wall Architectural Speaker

Ci3160REF-THX# utilises REFERENCE technologies to meet the standards of the legendary REFERENCE Series, as well as KEF’s Extreme Theatre and THX® Certified Ultra. It even comes with a REFERENCE Build Certificate signed by the craftsman who made it.

Ci3160REF-THX

Ci3160REF-THX takes in-wall performance to new heights. Whether used as a two-channel pair or as part of a complete home theatre system in any combination of KEF Architectural and traditional speakers, Ci3160REF-THX delivers countless possibilities for REFERENCE performance.

Flawless Sound

Ci3160REF-THX utilises the latest Uni-Q point source driver array. A 25mm vented aluminium dome tweeter sits at the exact acoustic centre of a 125mm mid-range driver. Together they act as a single source, flooding the listening space evenly with flawlessly natural sound.

Brilliant Bass

Ci3160REF-THX’s bespoke 160mm bass driver is optimised for in-wall performance. With a massive vented magnet assembly and a large aluminium wire voice coil driving an exceptionally light, stiff and strong alloy cone, the dynamics and power handling are exceptional.

Auditioning perfection

Ci3160REF-THX’s crossover combines the science of computer-modelling with the rigours of exhaustive auditioning and refinement of each high-grade component. Only components with the lowest distortion and the smoothest response make the grade for this exceptional loudspeaker.

 

#For optimised performance, THX recommends using the Ci3160REF-THX without grille or fabric grille.

Description

Features KEF’s patented Uni-Q driver array

The standards of architectural speakers have been reset forever. We introduce the in-wall KEF Ci5160REF-THX - the newest addition to THE REFERENCE family, meeting KEF’s standards for Extreme Theatre as well as THX Ultra Certification.

Ci5160REF-THX

The Ci5160REF-THX is engineered with a massive aluminium baffle to eliminate vibration and is the perfect platform for the 125mm (5 inch) MF/HF Uni-Q driver array with 25mm (1 inch) vented aluminium dome tweeter and four 160mm woofers.

Uni-Q driver array

At the heart of the Ci5160REF-THX is the 11th generation of the KEF’s signature innovation: the Uni-Q point source MF/HF driver array. With a 25mm vented aluminium dome tweeter at the exact acoustic centre of a 125mm mid-range driver, both act as a single source that floods the listening space evenly with a flawless natural sound field.

Bass drivers

Like everything else about THE REFERENCE, the bespoke 160mm LF driver optimised for use in-wall, is a class apart. With a massive vented magnet assembly and a large aluminium wire voice coil driving an exceptionally light, stiff and strong alloy cone, the dynamics and power handling are superb.

Crossover

KEF engineers computer-modelled the ideal crossover networks before exhaustively auditioning every high-grade component to select those with the lowest distortion and the smoothest response. Perfectionism takes time, but the difference is clear. Nothing is overlooked – the HF and LF crossovers are even mounted on separate boards to minimise crosstalk.
