Kef Q 100 vs 150

I currently have a pair of Q300 and Q100 as a center upstairs with SVS PB 1000 running off Anthem MRX520. I want a smaller footprint and I like the Rear port. Does the q150 sound much different than the Q 100? I have not heard the new series. Thanks

I have a Q150 pr and love them. Heard the Q100's but that was a while back. Professional reviews say Q150 are a better speaker than the Q100.

I have both. I had the q100s for around a year before buying the q150s. The main difference would probably be where the q100s are forward with voices, strings and piano, the q150s are more laid back. At lower volumes, the q150s sounded less detailed to me, but when they were turned up, the detail was revealed.

The other difference was in bass. The q150s definitely have more bass. While the q100s do not quite have enough bass for me to use in a 2.0 setup, the q150s have just enough. That is just one person’s opinion. Yours may vary. In the end, I preferred the q100s a little bit more, but I could definitely see others choosing the q150s. In my case, I tend to listen at lower volumes due to a kid who goes to bed early. If I listened a bit louder more often, then I might choose the q150s.


Here is a more detailed comparison I did a few months ago.
