KEF’s new subwoofers have been engineered to reveal hidden depths and bring out the true scale of sound.
The Maidestone maestro’s design and engineering teams worked together closely to develop an advanced Digital Signal Processing algorithm (DSP).
Intelligent Bass Extension
That DSP has been dubbed the Intelligent Bass Extension, better known as iBX.
This clever algorithm extends depth to maximise the capabilities of the custom designed driver. The result is an “unparalleled precision and ultimate synchronicity between amplifier, driver and sealed cabinet”.
Well, that’s got my attention.
They are equipped with a range of LFE, line, and speaker-level inputs, and Phase selection. Additionally, they are also packing 3 DSP controlled EQ settings.
This will help match your choice of sub to any room placement.
Furthermore, they feature a 56bit 50 MIPS DSP preamplifier.
This proprietary DSP programming has been developed by KEF’s UK engineering team.
These subs are kitted out with KEF smartConnect intelligent inputs. This tech automatically detect mono or stereo and adjusts the subwoofer volume level accordingly.
They also feature placement tuning presets for: Free standing, Wall/in-cabinet and Corner.
Moreover, I mustn’t forget the small matter of the 300Watt Class D amplifier.
