Has anyone heard the KEF Q900 loudspeakers?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
KEF Q900 2.5-way Q Series floor standing speaker with Uni-Q array - $1,800 pair

These speakers look interesting to me, but I have no way to audition them. I was wondering if anyone knew at what frequency the 8” Uni-Q midrange unit is passively crossed over to the passive radiators. I would guess around 100HZ. Does anyone know for sure?

Am I correct that there are no KEF dealers in the USA and that now KEF is a direct Internet sales product mass produced in China?

The design looks like it should have very little crossover distortion and they have saved costs by avoiding real wood veneer and by using a rectangular box instead of the fancy curved boxes so common these days.

Does Pioneer, Polk, or other cost conscious manufacturer make anything better that is available on the Internet for $1,800 a pair?

I heard a 32 mm aluminum dome tweeter I liked on a Celestion mini-speaker back in the late 1980s. The 38 mm aluminum dome on the KEF, I hope, may be even better. I think the added surface area makes for a more natural sound. Aluminum dome tweeters have gotten allot better lately, and I was wondering if KEF had cured the hard, steely, cold sound commonalty associated with aluminum domes.

If I purchased a pair I guess I would have to do it deaf, as there is no way I can audition a pair.

Comments?

There are dealers depending on where you are located. Give Kef US a call and ask where the closest dealer is to you. Also Vanns is an on-line dealer but you would pay return shipping.

If you don't mind open box or b-stock items, Accessories4less has them for less than your quote.

I bought mine from them before the last price hike. $1,100 was a steal! They were "Open Box", but flawless. I can only speak for myself, but I had two transactions with A4L that went without hitch.

The three KEF's across the front have made excellent sound in my Home Theater system. The 900's do well on music, but I have Dunlavy's that do better in my music system.
