KEF HTB2SE-W Wireless Subwoofer

Delivers deep, dynamic tuneful bass with intelligent, interference-free signal technology

KEF unveiled a cutting-edge subwoofer that combines the freedom and convenience of no speaker wires with remarkable sound quality. The new HTB2SE-W takes a quantum leap forward in the evolution of KEF audio technology to make the promise of a high performance wireless subwoofer a reality.

The HTB2SE-W is a marriage of two KEF award-winning products — the HTB2 subwoofer, part of the KEF Home Theater line of 5.1 audio systems, and the Universal Wireless kit. Both have won multiple awards across the globe, making them a perfect fit in the union of form and function.

The new wireless subwoofer is worthy of the KEF name, synonymous for the most demanding home theatre and music systems. The installer or end-user can locate the HTB2SE-W virtually anywhere in the room they like and without the clutter and constraints typically encountered with a wired sub. Then they can enjoy remarkable bass with lifelike clarity and detail; all with reliable performance and a lack of interference.

Once in use, the impressive technology can be forgotten because the subwoofer’s automated signal processing means there are no buttons or dials to get in the way of enjoying great bass.

“Finally, discriminating music and movie lovers can have a great sounding subwoofer without having to fuss with wires and complicated setup”, commented Alec Chanin, President of KEF America. “With our new HTB2SE-W, the end-user can be up and running in minutes without wires running across their floor. Better yet, its unique design with vertical or horizontal placement options, it can be placed almost anywhere in the listening area. This sub is finally what the market has been waiting for. ”

A compelling combination of signal transmission, reception, and processing technologies come together in this next generation of KEF’s wireless system to ensure superb signal reliability and CD-quality sound transmission.

Using the acoustic design from the multi-award winning HTB2SE, the subwoofer’s ultra-reliable, high efficiency, 250W Class-D amplifier powers a 250mm (10in.) driver which, together with a matching auxiliary bass radiator produces amazingly deep, solid, and tuneful bass.

Whether you prefer to position it vertically or horizontally, you get the same great performance: an acoustically inert, extremely stylish enclosure shaped to eliminate internal standing waves. Extremely fast response and SmartBass™ ‘connect and go” versatility combined with easy to use bass boost and phase controls to make the most of the sub’s position in the room.

The KEF HTB2SE-W comes complete with amplifier and wireless transmitter for $1,200 MSRP. It is available to order now and will be shipping in October 2009.
