The KEF R500 Floorstanding Speaker features 5.25" low-frequency drivers positioned perfectly above and below our remarkably accurate 5" Uni-Q Driver Array, which consists of a 5" midrange driver and 1" tweeter. The R500's cabinet was constructed specifically not to color your audio, thus ensuring your listening experience be as true to the recordings being played as humanly possible.
The geometry and bracing of the R500's cabinet optimizes vibration behaviors, reducing secondary radiation from cabinet walls for a cleaner sound. Damping panels further minimize cabinet resonance and coloration, ensuring your audio sounds true to its original recordings. The R500 sits on an aluminum plate supposed by four steel plinths with integrated locking knobs for easy height adjustment. The plinths also serve to ground the R500, resulting in a rigid connection that eliminates any rocking resonances.
The KEF Uni-Q Driver Array is a coincidence driver where the midrange and tweeter units are mounted at precisely the same point in space, allowing them to integrate perfectly and create the ideal sound field for the listener to experience a convincingly natural sound.
