KEF introduced a white version of its KHT3005SE compact home theater speaker system, in addition to high gloss black. Comprising four HTS3001SE satellites, with their original dewdrop design, one HTC3001SE centre speaker and a 250-watt HTB2SE subwoofer, KEF's KHT3005SE system remains at the cutting-edge of audio innovation and aesthetic design, combining KEF's signature Uni-Q driver technology and its 'Tangerine' waveguide, for improved sensitivity and sound dispersion.
The HTS3001SE satellite speakers are specially shaped in a curved aluminium enclosure. The addition of the 'tangerine' waveguide to the Uni-Q array increases the sensitivity of the upper HF creating better sound dispersion. The adjustment of the satellites' tweeter for better clarity and integration has resulted in producing a more rich and sensationally detailed sound quality. KEF's 'sit anywhere' Uni-Q technology disperses sound around the room so well that you can 'sit anywhere' to enjoy the optimum surround experience. The radical new 'sealed suspension technology' incorporated in the speaker driver makes for cleaner, smoother response: the satellites can play astonishingly loud, without sounding unpleasant. The distinctive ribs visible on the speaker cone improve rigidity. This makes for a clean, natural and dynamic sound. Furthermore, the each speaker's magnetic grill adds a nice modern touch.
The HTC3005SE center channel speaker is made bigger for increased power handling and superior dialogue reproduction. Twin 3-inch (75mm) bass drivers give the necessary frontal impact; all important when watching a movie. 'Sit anywhere' Uni-Q technology assures perfect timbre matching to the HTS3005SE satellites. Furthermore, sound definition still remains crystal clear, even when not sitting immediately in front of, or not listening at the same height as the loudspeaker position. Crossover has been engineered to balance and match the satellites crossover resulting in a more detailed, balanced and brighter sound.
The HTB2SE subwoofer uses an ultra-reliable, high efficiency 250W Class-D amplifier with a 10-inch (250mm) driver and matching passive bass radiator. The acoustically inert enclosure is shaped to eliminate internal standing waves. A wireless subwoofer model HTB2SE-W is also available with this system.
