KEF Ci100QR In-Ceiling Speakers

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.

Features and Benefits

Purpose built for flush mounting into walls and ceilings these are the latest addition to the KEF Uni-Q Custom Installation series. Providing a compact solution to the problem of Hi-Fi quality sound from an in-wall/ceiling speaker, the Ci100QR consists of a polypropylene cone LF driver with the HF unit mounted at the acoustic centre of the LF unit. The bezel and grill can be painted to match the interior décor.
