Mid-sized three-way floorstander

Reference 3 has the uncanny ability to generate an intricate, emotionally compelling three-dimensional soundstage that places you right at the heart of the original performance.

A Class Apart

The Reference is the physical embodiment of KEF's Total System Design philosophy. Every component is optimised both within itself and as part of the whole, while every drive unit is given the chance to perform to the best of its considerable ability. The result is a loudspeaker that performs far beyond the sum of its parts.

Sound

Two 165mm (6.5 inch) bass drivers positioned above and below KEF's latest 125mm (5 inch) MF/HF Uni-Q driver array means that fidelity across the midrange and treble is outstanding. Everyone in the room can enjoy the same rich, spatially precise imagery and it puts them right at the heart of the original performance. 

Two drivers, a single point

At the heart of The Reference is the Uni-Q™ point source driver array. A state-of-the-art vented aluminium dome tweeter at the exact acoustic centre of a highly sophisticated midrange driver that delivers flawless natural sound across a wider listening area.

A strong foundation

Clean, rich and articulate bass is the foundation of great stereo or multichannel sound. KEF's Reference Series bass driver has a massive vented magnet assembly, a large aluminium voice coil and an exceptionally light and stiff alloy cone. Whatever the volume, dynamics and power handling are superb.
