KEF Ci4100QL-THX in-wall speakers from AWE
Why did you choose this product?
We recently worked on a residential project that required us to transform the loft conversion into a home cinema. The client already owned a pair of KEF R Series floorstanders which he used for a stereo system and wanted the KEF sound for his dedicated loft cinema room. We work very closely with AWE, visiting the AWE Expo to see new products and to take advice from them on which products will suit the projects we are working on. We already knew that we were going to opt for the KEF Ci4100QL-THX in-wall speakers for this project due to the sound these speakers produce, but after talking through the project with the team at AWE, we decided to match these speakers with two additional subs to provide better sound quality for the cinema room.
What do you like about using it?
With the KEF Ci4100QL-THX in-wall speakers, we were able to achieve a great sounding cinema system, while not taking up much room in the client’s loft. We are fans of these speakers, as they feature a Uni-Q point source driver array, which allows the sound to be dispersed widely and evenly throughout the room. This is great for a home cinema set up, as it means that whichever seat the client is sat in, they will enjoy the full experience.
In which applications are you using the product?
With space at a premium, the KEF Ci4100QL-THX in-wall speakers worked really well in home cinema installations. These speakers fit neatly in the wall, and provide great sound.
KEF Ci4100QL-THX in-wall speakers
The KEF Ci4100QL-THX is an in-wall speaker certified to THX SELECT2 standard. A deep understanding of the filmmaking process and surround sound is at the very heart of every THX certified 2.1, 5.1 and 7.1 speaker system. Engineered with design characteristics of professional studio speakers, THX recreates the tonal balance of the filmmaker’s final mix in the living room. The results? Action sequences are impactful, and dialogue-driven moments are natural and engaging.
THX certified in-wall speakers deliver the appropriate frequency response and high output and imaging quality of a traditional box speaker. This provides the best of both worlds—THX surround sound performance from components that blend harmoniously with any room decor.
Featuring KEF’s sophisticated ’sit anywhere’ Uni-Q driver array, which places the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone, this allows both the tweeter and woofer to act as a single point source that disperses the sound widely and evenly throughout the room. Together with the discreet Ultra Thin Bezel (UTB) design, offering the slimmest possible visible rim around the speaker, the KEF Ci4100QL-THX speaker provides tremendous freedom to position the speakers where you please.
