KEF E305 Home Theatre Speaker System

KEF

Enjoy the extreme pleasures of experiencing true hi-fi sound quality from your music and movies with KEF E Series home theatre speaker system.

  • EXTREMELY ACCURATE

    A perfectly balanced, seamlessly integrated high end 5.1 sub/sat system based on KEF's new 4.25" Uni-Q driver array and a superlative matching subwoofer, the new E305 home theatre system outperforms the competition by filling the room with a spacious, exquisitely detailed and compellingly natural soundscape that captures all the magic of the original performance

  • New 4.25 inch Uni-Q driver array

    The secret of the E305 system's outstanding hi-fi response lies in the latest iteration of KEF's signature Uni-Q driver array, originally developed for the multiple award-winning Q Series. With its famously wide dispersion characteristics and sonic purity, this technology is what gives the system its extraordinarily natural sound quality.

    Uni-Q Tweeter

    The tweeter at the centre of the midrange cone is vented to prevent distortion-inducing high pressure from building up behind the dome, so the response in the critical vocal region remains intricately detailed with every nuance of the original recording. With KEF's 'Tangerine' waveguide, it encourages the sound to radiate evenly, increasing both the dispersion and sensitivity of the tweeter for a more natural performance throughout the listening area.

    Uni-Q MF/LF driver

    Being stiffer than conventional materials, the aluminium midrange cone operates rigidly over the entire vocal range for the smooth, clear midrange response that reproduces the human voice with stunning accuracy. KEF’s Z-flex surrounding cone provides a smooth, uninterrupted surface over which the tweeter’s output passes with no disturbance or diffraction. Its undercut magnet designed driver motor, which usually is only found in high end speakers, reduces midrange distortion by generating a very symmetrical magnetic field, resulting transparency helps to create the feeling of 'being there'.

    Satellites

    It takes more than a great driver to create a class-leading satellite speaker, and the E301 satellite was designed from the start as a single perfectly balanced system with the crossover, cabinet and drivers working together in harmony.

    The less there is to intermediate the recorded signal, the clearer the sound. To eliminate secondary radiation and cabinet coloration, the enclosures are heavily reinforced with internal ribbing and damping technologies to ensure sonic accuracy with no unwanted resonances. The low diffraction cabinets are carefully engineered to minimise scattering of the output, so nothing subtracts from, nor adds to, the sound from the driver.

    Subwoofer

    The E305 system is designed to deliver exceptional bass performance, with the sub seamlessly integrated within the rest of the system, so it sounds like five full-range loudspeakers. The frequency and phase response of the sub and satellites are carefully matched to smoothen the transition, so you can't hear where the satellite stops and the sub starts.

    With a large, powerful motor system driving a long throw 8-inch cone, low frequency reproduction remains composed and unerringly accurate, even at high volume. Based on a Linkwitz Transform circuit to minimise any signal group-delay that would otherwise muddy the bass, the on-board pre-amp assures noticeably cleaner and more accurate low frequency reproduction.

    A closed-box design, the E-2 subwoofer delivers agile extended bass response without overhang - fast, punchy and well defined. Like the satellites, the cabinet borrows damping technologies from the LS50 to avoid resonance and secondary radiation to ensure tight, clean and immaculately controlled bass.
