Elegantly sized and big on quality, the KEF Q500 is a leader in its class.

Uni-Q technology for a natural soundstage

The KEF Q500 the Uni-Q drive unit to great effect. This has the treble unit in the throat of the mid-range woofer, so creating a single source for the sound that your ear is most sensitive to. The result is a broader, more cohesive sound that once experienced makes it hard to go back to conventional speakers. A 'tangerine' wave-guide system further helps the treble integrate more smoothly with the mid-range.

Aluminium woofer cone
Made from lightweight yet rigid aluminium, the mid-range woofer is fast to respond and linear in its response, giving life-like dynamics and low levels of distortion. Surrounding the woofer is Z-Flex woofer. This gives superior cone control, for seamless blending with the treble unit for an even and consistent sound.

Additional woofer and twin ABRs
Within its elegant floorstanding cabinet the Q500 houses no fewer than three additional bass woofers. One of these is powered and is dedicated entirely to bass below the mid-range unit. Working rather like a subwoofer, this enables the Q500 to offer consistent bass that's deep and sustained. Improving this further, twin Auxiliary Bass Radiators (ABR) use energy in the cabinet to enhance and sustain the bass response.

Minimalist crossover, easy bi-wiring
Like many rivals, the KEF Q500 speakers are bi-wirable. Where they differ though, is in their easy linking system. Rather than using awkward linking bars, the Q500 has simple twist controls. The high quality drive units mean that the KEF Q500 only needs only a minimal crossover. A few high quality components reduce resistance and therefore improve the transparency of sound.

Included plinth
Coming complete with a bolt-on plinth, the Q500s has excellent stability. The design stretches out the spikes to give the highest level of rigidity, which reduces distortion: the cabinet won't 'rock' with louder music. Yet another example of attention to detail is that the spikes are also easily adjusted with the provided tool.

Ideal for quality stereo in medium-sized rooms or as part of a superior AV system, the KEF Q500 is a very complete speaker.

To get the best from these premium speakers, we recommend speaker cables from premium suppliers Audioquest, Atlas, Chord and QED. Custom made lengths and terminations are also available. Please ask in store for advice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb value and top notch finish... Delighted with the speakers...the finish, sound and value for money are all top notch. They might not be a pair of Quad Electrostatic's but the sound is crystal clear and the tone and feel of the bass and treble is excellent plus they seem to suit my Rotel CD player and HK amp to a tee. Wish I had bought them long ago....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and detailed sound Only just bought these and have just given them a decent try out and the more I listen the more I like them. I had read a few comments on line about a lack of bass but bi wired through my Yamaha AS501 amp I find the bass deep and solid. Drums sound like drums and the vocals are rich and warm. I have listened to a variety of stuff,from Van Morrison Astral weeks to St Vincent Strange Mercy via Floyd, the Smiths, Grace Jones, Talking Heads ,Dylan and Santana and they all sounded wonderful. The speakers look good and are well built with a nice finish. Being able to adjust the spikes without fiddling about underneath is a plus. I demo'd these against the Q Acoustics 3050,'s which I found disappointing and the Monitor Bronze 6 which I liked but to my ears the KEF's were livelier but at the end of the day it's what sounds best to you and I am not disappointed with the KEF's they've taken my listening to a new level. As always great service at RS Cambridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound and well finished I purchased these to go with my hifi system comprising Audiolab cd, Denon amp Monitor Audio /SME turntable/arm and Sony tv system. I am impressed with the overall sound quality and well defined strings, voice and piano. Cymbal crashes and plucked strings are crystal clear. Also trad jazz and pop music also sound good. I bought these speakers ro replace my old KEF constructor kit 2 units. The upgrade has been well worthwhile. I have always liked KEF speakers. The service from Richer was excellent allowing me to try the speakers in my own home with the option to return them to the store for a full refund if I did not like them. Suffice to say I look forward to many years of happy listening.
