KEF KHT8005
The latest addition to KEF's KHT range of surround sound speaker systems is the KHT8005 with soundbar

KEF has already revamped its KHT surround speaker range, with new models and prices, and the latest addition to the family is the KHT8005 package with soundbar.

At the heart of the system is the new HTF8003 three-channel soundbar. It recreates the front soundstage from three loudspeakers housed within a single, inert aluminium enclosure.

The left, right and centre channels each use a three-way speaker system consisting of a KEF Uni-Q driver with 7.5cm mid/bass driver and 15mm high-frequency driver, a 7.5cm woofer and a 7.5cm auxiliary bass radiator (ABR) for extra bass depth.

Designed to work with flatscreen TVs of 42in or larger, the HTF8003 is supplied with a wall-mount bracket and a table stand.

Rear-channel sound is handled by a pair of HTS7001 satellite speakers, with 5cm woofers and 19mm tweeters. Like the soundbar, they can be wall mounted or placed on a shelf or table. 

More after the break

Low frequencies are supplied by the KUBE-2 subwoofer with 200W Class-D amplifier, side-firing 25cm long-throw bass driver and 25cm ABR.

Finished in gloss black, the KEF KHT8005 package will be available from October for £1099.
