KEF’s in ceiling speakers produce the full frequency range in stunning detail, without taking up space in a room. Tonal balance is essential to hi-fi audio, and KEF speakers are designed to showcase sound without exaggerating any area of the spectrum. With an in-ceiling setup, smart speaker placement is crucial. KEF’s Ci lineup allows you to eliminate needless bulk, while retaining total audio quality. In ceiling speakers provide a 3D surround sound experience that immerses the listener, with a vertical dimension that is missing from many home theater systems. Depending on the room’s layout, KEF’s Ci series is available in a wide range of sizes, so that your speakers lay flush inside a ceiling or wall fixture. At the cutting-edge of home theater sound, the Ci200RR-THX meets THX’s demanding ULTRA2 standard for professional-grade audio. The speaker’s massive woofer magnet, Z-flex surround, and aluminum tweeter (with tangerine waveguide) make for a formidable package.
Meanwhile, audiophiles will love the Ci130QS and Ci160CS — thin-bezel speaker designs with an impressively shallow mounting depth. The Ci130QS features KEF’s original Uni-Q driver array, which harnesses a central aluminum tweeter to create a single point source for the entire frequency spectrum. On the other hand, the Ci160CS has a square body, an asymmetrical tweeter island, and a mounting depth of only 3.36”. Finally, the Ci100QR Soundlight Series’ tiny 4.65” size is ideal for sleek theaters, airport lounges, and large-scale event spaces. No matter which Ci design you choose, all of these in ceiling speakers are built for stealth.
Adding motorized control to an in-ceiling system, KEF’s Ci200.3QT and Ci3-80QT allow you to tweak the speaker’s angle for a sweeping soundstage. When not in use, they remain inside the fixture like a conventional ceiling speaker; press a button, and the retractable marvels shift into the perfect position.
In some extreme cases, however, you need a specialty speaker with paper-thin dimensions. Cavity depth can be an issue in cramped quarters — such as a high-rise apartment or sleek yacht — but hi-fi audio is still possible with KEF’s Ci160TR. This in-ceiling marvel requires only 36mm of mounting depth for a seamless installation, so they can be placed almost anywhere.
