Pete, Milford Haven Home cinema enthusiast

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Despite their small size, these speakers deliver a rich and full sound. The quality of the bass and crispness of the mid range is dependent on positioning and cabinet size. Optional cans which act as small cabinets and enhance bass can be purchased but are relatively expensive. I experimented with home made mdf boxes which simply sit over the speakers in the loft space. I tried various sizes and used some old carpet underlay to decrease internal resonance along with some BAF wadding. I found a box size of 20cm square with a height of 25 cm worked best. I sealed the boxes to the plasterboard ceiling with silicon mastic. leaving sufficient cable inside in case the speakers need to be removed. This also keeps them dust free. The speakers can easily be removed from below without disturbing the box.
One pair of speakers are used in a cinema ATMOS setup, just forward of the main seating position, in conjunction with Tannoys on stands front and backand another set feeds sound to the kitchen from a network driven system. The beauty of these KEFs is they exactly match my ceiling lights.
Bad points:
Some people have complained of these little KEFs sounding tinny. If you just connect them up and hold them in an open space they will be very bass light, but fitted either with the cans or as described they sound great. They also go loud!

Philip, Colchester Pop, rock or dance music

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Tiny speaker, that provides a big sound at a great price, perfect for my ensuite.
Bad points:
Not real a negative but, sound quality is improved massively by enclosing the back of the unit, the backing can is a separate purchase
