KEF HTF8003 Soundbar

When limited space is an issue, soundbars can be a good solution when looking for the audio that Blu-ray and other HD audio require.

Delivering on the promise of KEF's legendary sound quality and rock solid sonic imaging, the HTF8003 produces the home theatre's front soundstage from a single acoustically inert aluminium enclosure that re-creates the performance of three discrete loudspeakers. Each of the three awe-inspiring channels is comprised of a remarkable three-way speaker system containing a KEF Uni-Q driver with 75mm (3in.) bass/midrange driver and 15mm (0.6in.) HF driver, a 75mm (3in.) woofer, and 75mm (3in.) Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) for extended bass output.

The technology behind the HTF8003 is KEF’s patented Uni-Q driver configuration that places the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone. This creates a single focused audio source that disperses the sound image evenly throughout the room so that everyone enjoys the full richness of music or movie soundtracks.

Sized to perfectly complement flat panels 42in. or larger, the superbly finished high-gloss black HTF8003 soundbar comes supplied with both a wall mount bracket and table stand which makes it an elegant compliment to any television. So whether your flat panel is mounted on a wall or seated on a credenza, this soundbar will compliment any place.
