KEF Q150 (White)
Speakers Per Pair - EXC Grilles
World famous Uni-Q technology for a natural sound stage
The KEF Q150 uses a famous KEF technology to great effect, with the Uni-Q drive unit. This involves positioning the treble unit in the middle of the woofer, creating a single point source for sound across the frequency range. The end result of this is a broader, more cohesive sound that offers excellent stereo within a wider listening area.
A new damped loading system greatly reduces distortion, giving a smoother, more detailed top-end. The "tangerine" wave guide system helps the treble integrate more smoothly with the mid-range.
Aluminium woofer cone with Z-Flex surround for low distortion
Made from lightweight yet rigid aluminium, the woofer unit is fast to respond and linear in its response. This helps give life-like dynamics and low levels of distortion. Using technologies developed in their high-end Concept Blade speakers, the Q150 offers attention to detail not usually seen in speakers at this level. The Z-Flex woofer surround gives superior cone control, helping it blend seamlessly with the treble unit for a more even and consistent sound.
With the bass port now moved to the back, the Q150 looks sleeker than ever. Available in black or white the minimalist style is a design classic.
Ideal for quality stereo in small rooms or as part of a superior AV system, the KEF Q150 is a compact classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jaybo25 from Excellent speakers - a surprise find! A lot of hype surrounds What Hi-Fi recommendations, and as such the bigger brother of these (Q350) seems to get all the plaudits. However, my store did not have those in white in stock and they were £100 more expensive anyway. Instead I was recommended the Q150 in white which were in stock. I paired them with a Marantz PM6006 UK Edition. The Guildford branch staff were very helpful and provided some excellent guidance during the process. I have to say that I'm very impressed. They do have a decent frequency response (I like a reasonable amount of bass and listen to a lot of EDM), especially noticeable with the amp's loudness mode when at the quieter end of the dial. This is even more surprising given their small size, however the driver is very similar to the LS50 - and a pair of those will set you back considerably more! I have these placed in the corners of a reasonable size room with a vaulted ceiling, and they easily fill the room with quality audio. If I were to be super critical, I would say that the treble is a little more directional than other units I've used in the past, meaning that if you position yourself exactly between the speakers, and the speakers are at 45 degrees to the walls of the room facing you, you will notice that the stereo image exists in a slightly narrower area. I was able to resolve this satisfactorily by simply having them face straight outwards from the back wall and very slightly tilted inwards, ie I simply widened the stereo centre. None of this detracts from my enjoyment of the units, however, as most of the time we are nowhere near the centre of the room anyway. The quality of the sound, even at very high volume, is superb. Treble is super clear, zero distortion and as said above, the bass reaches pleasingly low frequencies. In short, these seem to have escaped the detection of What Hi-Fi, but in my opinion they should be right up there as a recommended product. If you are after a more budget version of the Q350 or simply a smaller unit, then these will give you great enjoyment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by karsel from Fantastic pair of Speakers! After spending a month reading reviews, going through forums and watching You Tube videos, I managed to narrow it down to the Elac Debut 2.0 6.2 and the KEF Q150. Since I didn't have any HiFi speakers to compare with, I was sure whichever speakers I buy among the two is going to sound better than my soundbar. The build quality is really sturdy and looks great. I can hear sounds in music which I never heard before. Bass is quite punchy and doesn't suppress other ranges, vocals are clear and the clarity in music is not distorted even at high volumes. Overall the room felt filled which came as a surprise as I wasn't expecting it for their size. I have paired them with Marantz PM6006 and I am happy with it.
