KEF T305
Latest addition to the KEF's flat speaker range is the £1700 T305 5.1 surround system, making its debut at Bristol this weekend

KEF is expanding its 'T' range of super-slim surround speakers with the T305 model, making its debut at the Bristol Show this weekend.

Selling for £1700, the T305 comprises two pairs of matching T301 tall speakers for front and rear duties, plus a T301c centre and T-2 subwoofer.

The T Series incorporates a completely new ultra-low profile bass and midrange driver (11.5cm) alongside a large, fully vented new 25mm tweeter.

The new drivers sit within 35mm deep cabinets that KEF claims will perform as strongly mounted on a wall as on the proprietary stands thanks to an innovative crossover design. The suspension and magnet system are moved to the side of the voice coil.

Crossover components are hidden inside the stands themselves ensuring sound is adjusted for optimum performance when the speakers are stood in free space.

More after the break

KEF claims the design gives the performance of a conventional 7.5cm deep driver from a 27mm deep unit.

The T305 joins the existing £1200 T101 model we've first tested in the March 2011 issue of What hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, on sale now. A £1500 T205 system is also planned.
