The Reference 5 is KEF’s passion for perfection embodied in a tall three-way floorstander that aligns four powerful, extremely linear 6.5in. bass drivers – two above and two below KEF’s latest 5in. MF/HF Uni-Q array, with a sensational 1in. vented aluminum dome tweeter at the acoustic center.
KEF’s groundbreaking Uni-Q driver arrangement operates by housing a discrete tweeter in the center of the mid-range (treble/bass) unit. This allows both the entire sound field created by the speaker to originate from a single point in space, meaning every sound in the entire spectrum reaches your ears with precise alignment. This produces a truly natural sound; a sound capable of convincing the listener they are hearing a live performance. Because the audio originates from a single point, you can stand anywhere in the room and hear a performance more precise and realistic than other speakers can provide.
