Ci200QL Rectangle In-Wall/Ceiling Speaker Thin Bezel
The exceptionally stylish Ci200QL rectangular loudspeaker's narrow rim allows for flawless integration into your wall or ceiling. The wide dispersion of KEF's amazing Uni-Q driver gives your room more sound coverage with fewer speakers. Priced as EACH.
Featuring KEF’s sophisticated ’sit anywhere’ Uni-Q driver array, which places the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone, this allows both the tweeter and woofer to act as a single point source that disperses the sound widely and evenly throughout the room. Together with the discreet Ultra Thin Bezel (UTB) design, offering the slimmest possible visible rim around the speaker, the Ci Q Series range gives you tremendous freedom to position the speakers where you please. Fast and Easy to Install KEF’s Ci loudspeaker design makes them so quick and easy to install that once the wire is run and the hole is cut in your wall or ceiling you can be listening to music in less than two minutes.

Great, clean, crisp detailed soundThese are really great in-wall speakers - I was looking at mid/higher end B&W and Martin Logans among others for built-ins. I have these plus the same in the 160mm version in another room (space constraints). They both sound great - basically indistinguishable.
I like a clean, high-detail sound and these deliver -- I like the KEF sound. As a reference, Martin Logans are not my thing (too "soft", not crisp) but B&Ws generally sound good to me with the higher price speakers definitely delivering better sound for me). My other reference is a set of KRK VXT-8 studio monitors. Like other mid/higher-end KEF speakers I've listened to, these are the kinds of speakers where you can hear those little details that get lost on most crummy speakers - a vocalist drawing a quick breath, a brush of the fingers on the strings, a soft little brush back-beat on the drums behind everything else.
The bass on both this 200mm and the 160mm version is also very good - that is immediately apparent. Unlike most in-wall speakers that are designed for use as part of a THX-type AV system with a subwoofer, these seemed to be designed for hi-fi stereo audio and are rated down to 35khz (38khz for the 160s). I am driving them with a JAMO/Klipsch DSP 500, type g/h DSP amp, 125w/channel x 4 with the DSP equalizer at neutral. (That also happens to be a nice piece of hardware....)
All good, nothing bad.
