Is there an awesome deal like this on a full range.
Also have you considered converting them to an active speaker w a mini dsp and 2 class d amps
I had prepared a very long review of the the KEF Q100's, an extremely critical one in fact with all kinds of audiophile gibberish. I just deleted that review because something has happened to my speakers. I've never been a big believer of breaking in components, but the transformation in sound from breaking in the suspension on theses UNI-Q drivers...well, this a first for me in 20 years of wasting money in this hobby...a whole different speaker I'm listening to now!KEF should just put a giant sticker on the box that reads "these are going to sound like ass for the next few days". I was this close to sending the Q100's back because of the thin metallic sound and face melting shrillness.Reviews got this one right! Break them in HEAVILY, feed them a quality signal, and pair them with a sealed subwoofer...quite addicting now!
Amazing speakersby Anon9998 on May 11, 2018These sound incredible! Now that they are broken in, they have extended bass you would not expect from a speaker this size. They also have a very accurate sound with minimal coloration. Sometimes I have to check to see if I left our 12" subwoofer on! We have never owned KEF but have always wanted to. We were concerned about the tweeters being metal because usually metal tweeters have a harsh S sound. We cannot tell these are metal tweeters.We also own a pair of the Fluance SX6 which we also really like. The Fluance sound amazing but they do not have the accuracy of the KEF's.We mostly watch movies and use these in our 2.1 setup. We also listen to Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Lindsey Stirling, and other material that requires an accurate speaker like the KEF Q100. These speakers are worth every penny.
It was trial and error. One day looking at another thing on eBay I found a French NOS caps seller and offered them very cheaply, so I could not resist doing the test. I was just about to buy Jantzen red, recommended by Tony Gee (very gentle person). I liked so much the improvement in the treble so much that I decided that's how it stayed.http://www.humblehomemadehifi.com/Cap.htmlMy idea was to change the resistor too with an expensive Mundorf. Tony says me do not change the coil.I also wanted to change the internal wiring for another one from Neotech SOCT-16 hookup wire (recommended by Danny Ritchie, very gentle person too) but I was unable to dismantle the speakers because the external rings must be very glued!http://gr-research.com/
Würth 150kHz RF ferrite.It was trial and error too. I have a lot of in my house, and Schaffner RF/EMI FN9244B inlet filters too.If you put the RF ferrite in the speaker cable (outside the box) -> sound equalized like "U" -> too much highs The same effect, U, with my big 3-way speakers (woofer: 10.8") of the big room, kidnapped by TV and family.I do not have a logical explanation. I asked in the diyaudio.com forums and silence. As some of you already know, I am very inquisitive. Of course, first I try to find the answer for myself before bothering others.
I did not buy nothing more, only the styroflex aka polystyrene film caps.
