Elegant design meets powerful sound, with the KEF Q550 speakers.

World famous Uni-Q technology for a natural sound stage

The KEF Q550 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.

Improved treble
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. Another improvement with the Q550 is the sealed top compartment - meaning that treble and mid-range aren't affected by the air movements from the bass units.

Aluminium woofer cone with Z-Flex surround for low distortion
Made from lightweight yet rigid aluminium, the woofer units are fast to respond and linear in their response. This helps give life-like dynamics and low levels of distortion. Using technologies developed in their high-end Concept Blade speakers, the Q550 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.

Extra woofer and twin ABRs for bass boost
Within its elegant floorstanding cabinet the Q550 house 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 Q550 to offer consistent and reliable bass that's both deep and sustained. Improving this further, twin ABRs (Auxcillary Bass Radiators) utilise energy within the cabinet to further enhance and sustain the bass response.

Plinth included for enhanced stability
Coming complete with bolt-on plinths, the Q550 offer excellent stability. The design stretches out the spikes to give the highest level of stability possible from such a slender speaker. This has the effect of reducing distortion as the cabinet is more likely to stay in position and not 'rock' with louder music. Yet another great piece of attention to detail is that the spikes are also effortlessly adjustable from above - saving time and hassle when it comes to setting up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built, look amazing and sound great I've had these a couple of weeks and, WOW, I have a 500 watt sub also but to be honest I probably don't need it now. It's nice to have the ability of a REALLY deep rumble but if you haven't got a sub then you won't miss one. Nice separation and lovely sound. For the price I'm extremely happy. As I ordered these over the phone (lockdown) I didn't really want to collect them, this was no problem and they were delivered the next day for FREE!. Very helpful staff on the phone and I will definitely use them again. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KEF Q550, great sound and quality product Bought a couple of weeks ago as an upgrade to a set of 25 year old (grundig) floor standing speakers. Immediately noticeable improvement in sound quality even though being run off an inexpensive amp. Really pleased with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good looking speaker, sounds even better I bought these to upgrade my 5.1 set-up front speakers, replacing some smaller Kef eggs. Powered with a Denon AVR3300, from the start these speakers sound great, and will bed in perfectly after a few more listening hours. Nice clear trebles, with no overpowering bass, the soundstage is better than anything I've heard before. Instruments orchestral pieces really stand out from each other, and where some speakers can struggle with the lower register on a piano piece, the 550's excel. Vocals are stunning too. They also sound great on some of the movies that have been watched so far. The adjustable feet on the bases make levelling them up a doddle. Ordered online on Sunday evening, they arrived Tuesday morning, on standard delivery - thanks RS for another great service. Next - time to upgrade the Centre to match !
