KEF Displays New Flagship KF92 Subwoofer

While a CEDIA focus for KEF was various new in-wall and on-wall speaker models, the company was also showing off the new KF92 subwoofer in a corner of its translucent booth.

KEF’s compact (13.9 x 11.8 x 14.2-inch, H x W x D), gloss-black powerhouse uses dual 9-inch drivers in a force-canceling configuration, with each driver powered by a separate 500-watt class-D amplifier. Sophisticated DSP carried over from the company’s LSX speaker is used for limiting/compression to prevent distortion at high volume levels, and there’s an Apartment mode that applies a high-pass filter and additional limiting and compression to avoid bass-related neighbor complaints.

Other features include a five-position EQ switch to accommodate various room placements, speaker- and line-level inputs, an LFE bypass, and a pass-through mode.

KEF expects to ship the KF92 in November for $2,000.
