Description

Description

Within a home theatre environment, the centre speaker is arguably the hardest working. It helps to drive the story by handling vocal duties and most of the on-screen action. With the same Uni-Q as the main speakers, featuring a 125mm (5 in.) midrange and 25mm (1 in.) aluminium dome tweeter, R2c recreates every nuance, while matching the rest of the range tonally. The twin 130mm (5.25 in.) bass drivers allows the R2c to dig even deeper, ensuring that the audience doesn't miss a beat.

Uni-Q Driver Array

Developed by KEF in 1988, the Uni-Q driver array acts as a single point source, providing pristine sound across a wider area. The R Series benefits from a new incarnation of this driver array, with advantages over its predecessors that include a new midrange motor system that drastically reduces distortion.

Air moving across the minute gaps between Uni-Q’s separate elements creates tiny resonances, but KEF engineers have reduced the impact of these necessary gaps by opening a cavity behind the drivers and adding resonance-absorbing damping material for more precise, purer treble.

Low Frequency Drivers

The R Series’ dedicated low-frequency drivers have a two-part structure, where a shallow concave aluminium skin sits atop a paper cone. This adds stiffness, while the cone’s unique geometry reduces resonances and delivers the pistonic movement that makes these drivers time so well.The new drivers also have a completely redesigned magnet system that creates a more even magnetic field, and a design of spider that reduces harmonic distortion for a cleaner, more precise sound.

Flexible Port Technology

KEF engineers computer-modeled the ideal crossover networks before exhaustively auditioning every high grade component, individually and together, to select those with the lowest distortion and the smoothest response. Perfectionism takes time, but the difference is plain to hear. Nothing is overlooked - Reference crossovers are even mounted on separate boards and decoupled from the cabinet walls to minimize vibration and crosstalk.
