- Experience music like you’ve never experienced it before thanks to the The REFERENCE 5’s groundbreaking Uni-Q point source MF/HF driver array. The array is built so its state-of-the-art 1 inch vented aluminium dome tweeter is at the exact acoustic center of a highly sophisticated 5 inch midrange driver.
- The KEF REFERENCE 5 provides clean and articulate bass with its four distinct 6.5 inch LF driver. With a vented magnet assembly and large aluminium wire voice coil driving an alloy cone, the dynamics and power handling of the low end are superb.
- With Uni-Q’s broad inclusive dispersion, everyone in the room can enjoy the same rich, spatially precise acoustic imagery without being restricted to a narrow sweet spot.
- Not only are the REFERENCE 5’s cabinets designed to eliminate coloration, but they also come in your choice of high gloss piano black or satin walnut. All our hardwood cabinets are made from real hardwood and built specifically for you.
- Each REFERENCE 5 is built-to-order by our technicians in the UK.
The KEF REFERENCE 5 exemplifies the passion for innovation that underpins our REFERENCE series’ design philosophy. Whether you’re listening to music or watching a film, the REFERENCE 5 reveals subtleties you’d never noticed before with a gripping, powerful performance. The REFERENCE 5 is perfection embodied in a tall three-way floorstanding speaker that aligns four powerful, extremely linear 6.5 inch bass drivers, two above and two below our latest 5 inch MF/HF Uni-Q array, which features a sensational 1 inch vented aluminum dome tweeter at its acoustic center. With the Uni-Q’s broad inclusive dispersion, everyone in the room can enjoy the same rich, spatially-precise acoustic imagery without being restricted to a narrow sweet spot. Like the rest of the REFERENCE series, your REFERENCE 5 is handmade with great precision by our virtuoso engineers in the UK. This includes the tuning of your speakers, the incredible mathematics that dictate the speaker’s pristine sound, and even the hardwood cabinet all its components are housed in. The end result is a speaker which commands a magisterial presence over its competitors, in both sound quality and style.
