About the KEF HTF7003

KEF quality for your front soundstage

The slim oval profile of KEF's HTF7003 sound bar will look good whether it's wall-mounted or sitting on your TV stand. Of course, we don't judge our speakers on looks alone. Fortunately, that glossy, black aluminum cabinet houses three distinct high-performance KEF speakers for your home theater's front channels. 

KEF quality for your front soundstage

The slim oval profile of KEF's HTF7003 sound bar will look good whether it's wall-mounted or sitting on your TV stand. Of course, we don't judge our speakers on looks alone. Fortunately, that glossy, black aluminum cabinet houses three distinct high-performance KEF speakers for your home theater's front channels. 

The left, center, and right channels each have dual 2” woofers and one 3/4" tweeter for a total of nine drivers. As the action on the screen pans from side to side, the sound will follow it smoothly (though you might be too lost in the movie to notice).

Make sure you have what you need

Most sound bars that we offer are completely self-contained, self-powered speaker systems. But the HTF7003 needs a separate home theater receiver for power and TV connections. In addition to a receiver, you might consider getting a powered subwoofer to fill out the low end.

You'll also need speaker wire. Check out our shopping guide to learn more.

Features

Passive Soundbar Loudspeaker: Delivering on the promise of KEF's legendary sound quality and rock solid sonic imaging, the HTF7003 passive soundbar loudspeaker produces the home theater's front soundstage from a single acoustically inert aluminum enclosure that recreates the performance of three discrete loudspeakers (Left Front, Center, and Right Front).

Note: The KEF HTF7003 is a passive soundbar loudspeaker (not an active soundbar speaker) and will require a separate AV receiver or integrated amplifier.

3-Channel, Two-Way Design: Each of the HTF7003 passive soundbar's three channels (Left Front, Center, & Right Front) is comprised of a two-way speaker system containing a 0.75" tweeter and dual 2" mid-woofers for sound that is clear, detailed, and dynamic. Because the front three channels are so perfectly matched, as the action on-screen pans from side to side, the sonic image you hear will track the visual image perfectly. This will further enhance the realism of your cinematic experience.

Aluminum Enclosure: The KEF HT7003 passive soundbar loudspeaker incorporates an acoustically inert, acoustic suspension (sealed) aluminum enclosure for uncolored and natural sound. 

Spring-Post Terminals: Each channel (Left Front, Center, and Right Front) of the HTF7003 features a set of spring-post terminals that will accept up to 12AWG bare wire. The spring-post terminals are too small to support banana plugs. 

Mounting Options: The KEF HTF7003 soundbar loudspeaker is sized to perfectly complement 32" and larger flat-panel TVs. The HTF7003 soundbar comes supplied with both a wall-mount bracket and a table-top rubber foot which make it an elegant compliment to almost any flat-panel television. Wall-mount screws not included.

  • Wall-Mount Dimensions: 30.875" (w) 3.125" (h) x  2.875" (d)
  • Table-Top Dimensions:  30.875" (w) 3.25" (h) x 2.875" (d)

Optional Rear Speakers: You can choose a pair of KEF in-wall, in-ceiling, or on-wall loudspeakers (sold separately) as rear speakers for your home theater system.

Optional Powered Subwoofer: A KEF Kube series powered subwoofer (sold separately) is the perfect addition to the HTF7003 soundbar loudspeaker.

Customer Q&A

4 questions already asked

Q
Can this KEF soundbar be attached to an articulating TV wall mount?
[ D  Jun 24, 2022 ]
1 answer
A
Yes. We can use the keyhole wall-mounting bracket that comes with this soundbar along with an adapter to attach this soundbar to a TV wall-mount. Here's an example of the type of adapter we would use: www.crutchfield.com/p_051SA405/item.html

Q
Can I use this as JUST a center speaker?
[ Mark  Dec 13, 2021 ]
2 answers
A
based upon what I've seen on the KEF USA website, the HTC7001 is the same as the HTF7003 with an addition of a pigtail connector to attach the three pairs of input connectors on the back of the speaker to the center output connector on the receiver. If you look at the information sheet on the KEF website it will explain the connections.
[ RONALD  Dec 14, 2021 ]
A
Yes-but it really doesn't provide enough full range. Somewhat "tinny" sounding.
[ Todd  Dec 13, 2021 ]
Q
what type cables do you recommend for kef htf7003?
[ Richard  Jan 16, 2021 ]

A
I purchased from Crutchfield the G2 speaker wire Audioquest, Its working good
[ Joe  Jan 18, 2021 ]
A
I used standard speaker wires. I'm using this as a center speaker...I've wired all three terminals to the center channel.
[ JOHN  Jan 16, 2021 ]
Q
What subwoofer and surround speakers would match well with this soundbar?
[ Donald  Feb 21, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
I think there are a number of different options that would compliment that KEF sound bar. Here is one option with some on-wall KEF T101s and the KEF Kube subwoofer https://www.crutchfield.com/I-rXYEc888/cart/EmailCart.aspx?emKey=2181210 If you have any questions or want to look at alternatives you can also connect with a Product Advisor for personalized advice here: https://bit.ly/2QNxGQB
