KEF XQ30


$1,500.00 Released August, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Smooth lines and beautiful finish, look great in any home. Drivers are durably constructed, will last for many years to come. Setup is very easy, the binding posts are nice to work with.

The Cons:Can sound overly bright in a highly reflective room, make sure you have carpet or curtains. Doesn't have a huge, booming amount of bass.

The KEF XQ30 is a floor standing tower speaker aimed at the audiophile market. It contains similar components to the KEF XQ50c, but features a larger cabinet design for better resonance and a richer tone that can provide clear representation of deeper bass frequencies.

It is followed in the series by the KEF XQ40, which offers more drivers and a louder output. A 5.25 inch driver is paired with a 5.25 Uni-Q that surrounds a 0.75 inch aluminum dome, enabling a natural sound with strong and detailed bass support without distortion. The 8 Ohm impedance and magnetic shielding help to reduce the amount of interference from surrounding devices and wiring, and the speakers as a whole are capable of up to 150 Watts of output.
