KEF Q550 Floorstanding Speaker
Award-winning depth and clarity.
The pleasure of sonic perfection
One of the life's pleasures is to experience the intensity of an outstanding recorded performance in your own space. Q Series speakers by KEF bring you that pleasure in natural, accurate high-resolution sound.
First introduced in 1991, the multiple award-winning Q Series has long delighted music lovers and audiophiles with outstanding sound quality and innovative design. The Q Series, now in its 8th iteration, brings high resolution sound with more depth and more clarity.
"Sit anywhere" Uni-Q sound
At the heart of the evolved Q Series is the Uni-Q driver array. The signature innovation places the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the midrange and bass cone, bringing the acoustic ideal of a single point source closer than ever to realisation. The result is a more detailed, accurate three-dimensional sound image, which is dispersed more evenly throughout the room than is possible with any conventional speaker. Uni-Q's ultra-wide dispersion is further enhanced through KEF's 'tangerine' waveguide over the tweeter dome.
New system design
To optimise the high resolution purity of the Q Series bookshelf speakers, the Uni-Q driver is repositioned to the center of the cabinet to reduce unwanted internal resonance and adding refinement to sonic clarity and detail. With the addition of the damped tweeter loading tube providing a gentle termination of sound produced from the back of the tweeter, lower treble performance is improved dramatically and a new low-distortion inductor on the crossover provides cleaner bass.
Featuring a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) port design with the port repositioned to the rear of the speaker, clarity is improved by reducing the audibility of the midrange leakage through the port.
