The KEF Blade is an engineering tour de force, and the result offive year"s exhaustive testing, expert analysis and intricateexperimentation by the UK based research and development team. Atthe heart of the Blade is its Single Apparent Source technology.For highest quality sound reproduction the individual driversections (for bass, midrange and treble) of a multi-way loudspeakermust work together and need to produce sound-fields that appear tocome from the same point in space.
This is particularly importantat the crossover frequencies where the sound output switches fromone driver to another. The Single Apparent Source technology is aperfect extension of the new, fully pistonic KEF Uni-Q® MF/HFarray, which brings the bass drivers into the picture for the firsttime. Together they combine to form a seamless point source driverarray handling the entire frequency range. Visit our featured links Visit our sponsors and showcases.
