E305 HOME THEATRE SPEAKER SYSTEM
5.1 home theatre system
The E305 system combines Uni-Q driver powered satellites with a carefully matched subwoofer for true hi-fi sound quality. KEF’s E Series home theatre speaker system brings your music and movies to life thanks to a new 4.25″ Uni-Q driver array in five satellites that seamlessly integrate with the matching subwoofer.
The E305 home theatre system combines a perfectly balanced 5.1 sub/sat system based on KEF’s new 4.25″ Uni-Q driver array and a superlative matching subwoofer. It effortlessly creates an exquisitely detailed and compellingly natural soundscape that reveals the magic of the original performance.
New 4.25inch Uni-Q driver array
The secret of the E305 system’s outstanding sound quality is the latest iteration of KEF’s signature Uni-Q driver array, originally developed for the multiple award-winning Q Series. With its famously wide dispersion and sonic purity this technology is what gives the system its extraordinarily natural sound quality.
The Uni-Q tweeter is vented to prevent distortion-inducing pressure from building up behind the dome, keeping the response in the critical vocal region clean and transparent. KEF’s ‘Tangerine’ waveguide encourages the sound to radiate evenly, increasing both the dispersion and sensitivity of the tweeter.
Uni-Q MF/LF driver
Uni-Q’s rigid aluminium mid/bass cone delivers a smooth, clear response with stunning accuracy. KEF’s Z-flex surround provides a smooth, uninterrupted surface over which the tweeter’s output passes without diffraction. And its underhung magnet system reduces distortion by generating a highly symmetrical magnetic field.
The E301 satellite was designed as a single perfectly balanced system with the crossover, cabinet and drivers working together in harmony. The enclosures are heavily reinforced with internal ribbing and damping. The shape minimises diffraction so nothing subtracts from, nor adds to, the sound from the driver.
Everything about the E305 system is designed to make life easier. It’s simple to hook up to any AV receiver that controls subwoofer output level and requires no special tools or skills to set up for optimum performance. Whether it’s on the desk, the wall or floor stands, you’ll have it singing in a flash.
The frequency and phase response of the sub and satellites are carefully matched to smooth the transition between them, so you can’t hear where the satellite stops and the sub starts. With a powerful motor system driving a long throw 8-inch cone, bass remains composed and unerringly accurate, even at high volume.
KEF’s original ‘egg’ system revolutionised home entertainment with its supremely accurate 3D sound from small speakers packed with unique technologies. Redesigned to take advantage of design innovations developed for KEF’s most sophisticated audiophile speakers the all-new E305 system raises the bar even further.
