Ci160ER

Heard but not seen, with unprecedented value and performance, KEF's E series of architectural speakers is designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards as all KEF's architectural offerings and features KEF's famed Uni-Q driver technology.

KEF's Uni-Q driver enables the mid-range and tweeter to act as a single point source. This patented technology allows the listener to sit anywhere in the room and still enjoy KEF's world-renowned sound and clarity without having to be positioned in the narrow "sweet-spot" found with conventional speaker designs.

The E Series also features KEF's Ultra-Thin Bezel (UTB) technology which offers the thinnest possible visible rim around the speaker assembly. The bezel and grill can be painted to match the interior décor.

All KEF Ci architectural speakers, including the speakers in the E Series, are manufactured to Weather Resistant Construction standards: The grilles are coated via a proprietary process, the speakers include moisture-resistant terminations and finish materials, and the plastics are UV protected, allowing you to safely use these speakers in applications such as bathroom and kitchen.

Kef Ci160ERs, Uni Q Speakers without the Expensive Price Tag

Really impressed with the performance of the Ci160ER In Ceiling Speakers.
The directional sound is very impressive from the UniQ design and to be honest I struggle to tell the difference between these and the QR models for Theatre Atmospheric Atmos purposes.
5.1.2 and 5.1.4 sounds great with these.
The only thing I would comment on is you may wish to buy the QR models if music is the purpose for them as the Bass level is lacking. Again for atmospherics for Home Theatre this just isn't a problem as the bass is coming from elsewhere.
Equally you could try the Ci200ERs as they are still cheaper and have a much improved bass response, but these then get quite large in physical size too.

All in all though, for In Ceiling Speakers, KEF are the only way to go with UniQ. Dead set speaker positioning is a thing of the past with these. Great job KEF!
