I also am not convinced a 2.5 way isn't a good design for KEF speakers, I know the midwoofer being relieved of all bass has its benefits but in the 2.5 way configuration it will retain their full "point-source" character since the midwoofer plays all the way down to the bass. With 3 woofers sharing the bass load, I really doubt any kind of distortion is going to be a problem.
Good catch on that! I didn't notice, you're correct.
That speaker should be a total failure in sales. Seriously, a simple 2-way with passive radiators for US $600? KEF is nucking futs.
As for 2-1/2-way speakers, KEF's Q series 2011 and 2017 are all 2-1/2-way speakers, AFAIK
. One LF driver doing full range with the MF cone of the Uni-Q, and two ABR's. They sound great.
