R3 redefines standout performance. No surprise, as it shares the same drivers as the range-topping R11. A true three-way speaker, the 165mm (6.5 in.) bass driver pushes bass performance to new extremes. The 125mm (5 in.) midrange driver and 25mm (1in.) aluminium dome tweeter creates a Uni-Q array that defies the expectations from the most compact main speaker in the range.
Placing the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the midrange cone brings the acoustic ideal of a single point source closer to realisation. The new R Series benefits from a new 12th generation of the legendary Uni-Q which has been extensively designed using KEF’s in-house simulation and analysis tools. KEF’s engineers have been able to dramatically reduce colouration through reducing resonance in the minute gaps between Uni-Q’s separate elements. The resulting sound is purer, more precise and makes stereo imaging far more believable.
