KEF Reference 8b Subwoofer in Black
KEF REFERENCE 8b delivers exceptional bass precision and control with zero distortion. Only a truly great subwoofer could do justice to THE REFERENCE standards of home theatre, and it does.
To experience the full impact of dramatic on-screen effects, bass definition and control are as important as extension. For power with accuracy, REFERENCE 8b sub boasts two 500W Class D amps, each driving a 228mm (9 inch) long-throw, ultra-low distortion driver, connected back-to-back in the heavily braced, acoustically inert cabinet. Only a truly great subwoofer could do justice to THE REFERENCE standards of home theatre, and it does.
The standard by which others are judged, and to which they aspire. The perfect reproduction of recorded sound is what KEF's legendary THE REFERENCE Series has always stood for. And after 40 years of continuous development, THE REFERENCE has earned its name as the yardstick of high-end acoustic engineering.
If you're a perfectionist when it comes to enjoying movies or music, it's the one name that towers above the rest. THE REFERENCE. It speaks for itself.
