The most elegant design solution to the perennial problem of where to place the all-important front speakers in a high-end home Theater installation, the motorized Ci3-80QT purrs down into position from the ceiling. With a 75mm (3") Uni-Q(R) array flanked by a pair of long-throw bass drivers of the same size, it combines Uni-Q`s exceptionally wide dispersion characteristics with fluent and accurate response right across the frequency range.
Whispered or shouted, on-screen dialogue and vocals become transparently clear, subtly nuanced and as perfectly located as the speakers themselves.
Features and Benefits
Purpose built for flush mounting into ceilings the Ci3-80QT is the latest addition to the KEF Uni-Q Custom Installation series. The 3-way, Ci3-80QT combines 100W power handling and 87dB sensitivity and consists of a polypropylene cone LF driver with the HF unit mounted between two matched size LF units.
