R Starts with Reference The new KEF R Series has been completely re-engineered from the ground up. Decades of experience and the unbridled passion for music come together in the new R Series. Combining innovations from the Reference Series with bespoke technologies the new R Series delivers more detail, deeper insight and greater excitement.
R11 is the flagship of the new R Series range. Boasting four 165mm (6 in.) hybrid aluminium bass drivers, R11 digs deep and retrieves an exceptionally clean and musical low-end performance. Nestled in the centre of these lies the new 12th generation Uni-Q driver array. The 125mm (5 in.) midrange driver and 25mm (1 in.) aluminium dome tweeter combine to deliver an even more natural midrange and treble than believed possible at this price point. The result is a speaker that can pick out the softest details with grace and refinement, as well as deliver raw power and strength.
The R8a is a flexible solution for anybody wanting to bring an all-immersive movie experience to their home. With the integrated wall mount feature, R8a can serve as a surround or rear speaker. Equipped with a 130mm (5.25in.) Uni-Q array with a 25mm (1 in.) tweeter, every detail is described, steered around the listening space as the director intended.
Within a home theatre environment, the centre speaker is arguably the hardest working. It helps to drive the story by handling vocal duties and most of the on-screen action. With the same Uni-Q as the main speakers, featuring a 125mm (5 in.) midrange and 25mm (1 in.) aluminium dome tweeter, R2c recreates every nuance, whilst matching the rest of the range tonally. The twin 130mm (5.25 in.) bass drivers allow the R2c to dig even deeper, ensuring that the audience doesn't miss a beat.
