KEF C3 Bookshelf Speakers (Black Ash) Pair

  • 54Hz-40kHz
  • 8 Ohms 10-125W
  • 88 dB (2.83V/1m)
ICON Loading...

Clear, confident and natural sounding, the C3 boasts KEF’s 130mm (5.25in.) bass driver for impressively extended low frequency response to complement the seductive realism of the sophisticated 19mm (0.75in.) tweeter and ‘tangerine’ waveguide. The resulting sonic performance is warm, rich in detail and compellingly three-dimensional, whether you’re enjoying a favorite track or watching a movie. All of the C Series enclosures are ultra-rigid to ensure the sound you hear is untainted by any internal resonance and all are magnetically shielded to give freedom when positioning.

  • newegg Aluminum dome tweeter with ‘tangerine’ waveguide The same 19mm (0.75in.) tweeter from the latest Q Series reproduces vocals with spellbinding realism – the unique ‘tangerine’ waveguide disperses its sweet natural clarity evenly throughout the room and provides excellent protection from straying fingers.
  • newegg Forward-firing slot port Bass response is further extended by a frontal slot port carefully contoured to maximize low frequency dispersion and minimize any unwanted turbulence that might otherwise color the well-defined output of the bass drivers.
  • newegg Dual sets of gold-plated binding posts To optimize acoustic resolution, there are dual sets of binding posts to accommodate bi-wiring, or, for the cleanest possible response right across the frequency range, bi-amplification. The exceptional acoustic definition you experience depends on the recorded signal being perfectly transmitted, so to eliminate the risk of tarnishing, the binding posts of the C Series are gold-plated.
  • newegg Ultra-rigid enclosures The sound you hear is untainted by any internal resonance from the sturdily constructed cabinet, thanks to careful internal bracing and a dense dual-layered baffle system.
  • newegg Magnetic shielding Freedom of positioning is virtually unrestricted because every C Series speaker is fully magnetically shielded to eliminate any risk of interference with other electronic devices in the room.
  • newegg Invisible keyhole wall mounting system With no ugly brackets to spoil the clean lines, it couldn’t be easier to secure your C Series satellites (upright or horizontally) to any suitable vertical surface using the ingeniously neat keyhole mounting point built into the back of each cabinet.

4 out of 5 eggsHigh quality bookshelf speakers

Pros: KEF quality on a blue collar budget. I compared with KEF Q series bookshelf speakers and while there was some difference I did not consider it worth the extra cost. I would recommend pairing with a sub but that is true with almost any bookshelf speakers. Best used for a stereo music set up or as rear/sides in a HT set up.

Heavy and quality construction. Good entry into the world of higher end speakers.

Cons: Not going to wow you with looks but the sound is there.

Other Thoughts: Keep and eye out for sales, these can be had for even cheaper than list price.
