I visited my dealer today to check out the new KEF KF92 subwoofer.
Oh my, what an amazing job KEF has done with this subwoofer!
The first thing I noticed is the size. It's no bigger than my KEF Kube 10b. The high-gloss black finish is deep and perfect, very similar to that piano black finish on the new R series.
In checking performance, we didn't have any true 11hz material to play, but some pipe organ music with tones down to 14-15hz were played and though can really only discern musical notes about 20hz, the tonal differences in how it felt in the room were incredibly detailed. This is the real deal for all kinds of music!
Now the down side. The KF92 is just too small to truly pressurize a large space the way a big ported sub can. In my 10'x14' office setup it would work great, and it would certainly displace the SVS SB2000 in my larger living room space, but anything larger wouldn't have that deep vibration that a large ported sub can produce.
It's a winner, but not for every application.
