Following our item specifying the company’s latest Uni-Core subwoofer technology last week, KEF has announced the launch of a new KC62 subwoofer with the same space-saving technology onboard. Retailing for $1,499, the new sub measures 9.68 x 10.07 x 9.76 inches and weighs in at just 31 lbs. The company promises the unit will deliver “unprecedented performance” and the twin drivers inside are powered by 1000W RMS (2 x 500W) of Class D amplification.
KEF says the concentrically designed voice coils and single motor system allow the KC62 to be housed in a cabinet reduced by more than a third in size of other typical subwoofers. There are two other technologies inside the unit, the first of which is ‘P-Flex Surround’, a pleated driver surround which resists acoustic pressure inside the cabinet and allows it to move with greater excursion. The second is a ‘Smart Distortion Control Technology’ which corrects for signal abnormalities and transients, promoting less colorization and reduced distortion.
The KC62‘s performance is augmented by custom in-house designed DSP algorithms, aka the ‘KEF Music Integrity Engine’. The algorithms include ‘iBX’ (Intelligent BassExtension) and ‘SmartLimiter’, which continually analyze the signal to prevent clipping while working to ensure an improved relationship between all components.
The KC62 can be used with a KW1 adaptor kit for wireless transmission and a room placement equalizer enables integration with varying listening environments. The sub is surrounded by an extruded aluminum curved cabinet which is available in carbon black or mineral white finishes.
