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.

Boost the bass while saving space, with the slender KEF Q550 speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service Bought Kef speakers recently in the Glasgow store,the sales assistant was very knowledgeable and was happy to set up a couple of different brands of speakers in the music room to allow us to hear the sound difference and choose which best suited ourselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solid output, easy to set up. I purchased these to replace my fire damaged pair of Cadenza. The bass is not as deep but does work well with a blue tooth input.
