World famous Uni-Q technology for a natural sound stageThe KEF Q950 uses a famous KEF technology to great effect, with the Uni-Q drive unit. This involves positioning the treble unit in the middle of the woofer, creating a single point source for sound across the frequency range. The end result of this is a broader, more cohesive sound that offers excellent stereo within a wider listening area.Improved trebleA new damped loading system greatly reduces distortion, giving a smoother, more detailed top-end. The "tangerine" wave guide system helps the treble integrate more smoothly with the mid-range. Another improvement with the Q950 is the sealed top compartment - meaning that treble and mid-range aren't affected by the air movements from the bass units.Aluminium woofer cone with Z-Flex surround for low distortionMade from lightweight yet rigid aluminium, the woofer units are fast to respond and linear in their response. This helps give life-like dynamics and low levels of distortion. Using technologies developed in their high-end Concept Blade speakers, the Q950 offers attention to detail not usually seen in speakers at this level. The Z-Flex woofer surround gives superior cone control, helping it blend seamlessly with the treble unit for a more even and consistent sound.
Additional woofer and twin ABRs for window-rattling bassWithin its floorstanding cabinet the Q950 house no fewer than three extra bass woofers. One of these 8 inch cones is powered and is dedicated entirely to bass below the mid-range unit. Working like a subwoofer, this enables the Q950 to offer a hugely powerful and sustained bass that’s at the top of its class. Improving this further, twin ABRs (Auxcillary Bass Radiators) utilise energy within the cabinet to further enhance and sustain the bass response.Plinth included for enhanced stabilityComing complete with bolt-on plinths, the Q950 offer excellent stability. The design stretches out the spikes to give the highest level of stability possible. This has the effect of reducing distortion as the cabinet is more likely to stay in position and not ‘rock’ with louder music. Yet another great piece of attention to detail is that the spikes are also effortlessly adjustable from above – saving time and hassle when it comes to setting up.Mighty power for the largest of rooms, the KEF Q950 is a true reference performer.Brand KEFColour BlackSensitivity (dB) 91Impedance (ohms) 8Power Rating (Watts) 200Weight (KG) 20.6Black YesFreq Response (Hz) 44 – 28,000Speaker Enclosure Type Bass reflex – rear portSpeaker Dimensions WxDxH (mm) 357 x 328 x 1116 (inc plinth)
