Description

KEF T205 System 5.1 Home Theater Speaker System is an exceptionally slim profile speaker system that fills a room with high definition 3D sound in its elegant appearance to match flat-screen Televisions.

KEF T205 System 5.1 Home Theater Speaker System, if you prefer a more frontal 'slam' for movie special effects and a system that generally plays louder, the T205 system substitutes a pair of the larger T301 speakers for the front satellite and centre channel speakers.

With five deceptively compact models T101s as front and rear satellites as well as the centre channel, plus the discreet T-2 subwoofer, the T105 system is powerful enough to fill most normal rooms with a compellingly detailed 3D sound image. As easy to set up as they are on the eye, they make the perfect entry-level surround sound system for the latest generation of flat-screen TVs.

T301 Satellite Speakers Pair /T301C Center Flat Speaker

In the larger models, the same high performance 25 mm (1 in.) vented tweeter is paired with two 115 mm (4.5 in.) ultra-low profile bass and mid-range drivers for an even bigger sound.

T101 Satellite Flat Speakers Pair

Mounted vertically as satellites (whether wall-mounted, on the desk stands supplied or the optional floor stands) or horizontally as a centre channel above or below the TV, the standard T Series speaker features KEF's new 115 mm (4.5 in.) ultra-low profile bass and midrange driver paired with the high performance new 25 mm (1 in.) vented tweeter.

Easy to conceal and operating in the same phase as the speakers for perfect integration, it delivers fast, uniformly dispersed and devastatingly accurate bass.

Slim speakers, serious sound

KEF's revolutionary T Series is in a different league from any low profile speaker you've ever heard. As one of the world's thinnest high-performance home theatre systems, the new T Series combines several landmark innovations: a radical new ultra-low profile bass and mid-range driver, and a large, fully vented new tweeter. By incorporating both in cabinets only 35 mm (just over 1.25 in.) deep, the T Series brings you all the pleasures of true audiophile quality sound in a speaker that perfectly complements the aesthetics of the latest flat-screen TVs.

Ultra-slim bass driver

A clean, forceful response that brings the action vividly to life.

Instead of a cone, the radical new twin-layer bass and midrange unit has a flat diaphragm whose rigidity throughout the frequency range is maintained by very fine stiffening ribs, with the driver as a whole acting as a stressed member to help eliminate any unwanted resonance from the slim cabinet. The resulting response is as clean, accurate and distortion-free as a quality conventional speaker, with none of the bulk.

In addition to minimising the height of the magnets, we placed the entire suspension outside the magnet system so that it adds nothing to its height. Whether you opt for the standard satellite and centre speakers or the larger models with additional bass/mid-range drivers, the result is an exceptionally shallow unit that allows the enclosure to have the same installed depth as current flat screen TVs without compromising acoustic integrity in the slightest. Lush yet well controlled, it's the kind of performance that brings soundtrack effects to life with a real sense of drama.

Large new vented tweeter

A warm, natural sound that's so real you feel you're there.

The generous size of the sophisticated new 25 mm (1 in.) vented tweeter specially developed for the T Series allows exceptionally accurate reproduction, especially of the human voice. And silken, effortlessly pure high notes. The clarity is outstanding, even played loud.

KEF's unique 'tangerine' waveguide helps to disperse the sound image evenly throughout the room. The combined effect is remarkable: you find yourself immersed in a dense three-dimensional sound picture that completely engages you with what's happening on screen.

T-2 Subwoofer

A slimline closed box design, the assertive T-2 subwoofer completes the 3D sound image by adding definition and weight to the LF response.
