KEF Blade 2 Speakers (Pair) Floorstanding Speaker

BLADE and BLADE TWO share a new architecture that achieves the ideal point source. The four bass drivers (225mm/9-in. for BLADE, 165mm/6.5-in. for BLADE TWO) are arranged so that their combined acoustic centre occupies exactly the same point in space as that of the Uni-Q HF/MF array. This means that the sound escapes the cabinet as if it weren't there and creates truly holographic imaging. Just as KEF's philosophy has always been to innovate in pursuit of the most accurate and realistic sound, BLADE loudspeakers create a spectacularly warm and expansive sound that draws you in to the music. Totally natural and effortlessly accurate, they are as emotionally inspiring as a live performance.
