About the KEF R5

Gorgeous sound from a gorgeous tower speaker

KEF's R5 speaker is the most compact floor-standing tower in the company's newly redesigned R Series. While the previous generation earned rave reviews from Crutchfield employees and customers alike, these new R Series models are jam-packed with upgrades that promise even sweeter, more refined sound.

Gorgeous sound from a gorgeous tower speaker

KEF's R5 speaker is the most compact floor-standing tower in the company's newly redesigned R Series. While the previous generation earned rave reviews from Crutchfield employees and customers alike, these new R Series models are jam-packed with upgrades that promise even sweeter, more refined sound.

This speaker comes in three beautiful finishes, and it includes stabilizing outrigger feet with carpet spikes.

A room-filling "sweet spot," thanks to Uni-Q® technology

KEF's patented Uni-Q technology places the speaker's 1" tweeter in the acoustic center of a 5" midrange driver. This concentric array allows sounds to originate from a single point source, making the "sweet spot" (the ideal listening position) much larger.

The R5 and other R Series models use KEF's latest refinement of Uni-Q technology. KEF has managed to reduce coloration by cutting resonance in the tiny gaps between the Uni-Q array's elements, for purer and more precise sound and even better imaging. And the ring you see around the Uni-Q array is what KEF calls their "Shadow Flare": its shape is carefully profiled to reduce high-frequency diffraction (a kind of interference), for the purest possible sound.

High-tech woofers for punchy bass

Each of the two 5-1/4" hybrid aluminum woofers is made up of a shallow aluminum skin atop a paper cone. This hybrid design allows very precise movement, for dynamic, accurate bass. And the two rear-firing ports have innovative flexible walls to prevent air turbulence and unwanted resonance from coloring the sound.

Part of a complete KEF surround sound system

The KEF R Series features an array of speakers that are voice-matched for compatibility in an immersive surround sound system:
