Ci160TS

Boasting the latest incarnation of our formidable 4.5in. mid/bass T Series driver and powerful 1in. tweeter, the ultra-slim new T Series Ci speakers open up new possibilities for enjoying KEF's uncompromised sound quality where installation space is at a premium. Requiring less than 36mm of mounting depth, the Ci160TS fits snugly in very narrow ceiling or wall spaces and is therefore specified for demanding applications such as today's luxury high-rise apartments and super-premium motor yachts.

Key Features

  • <36mm mounting depth allows fitment to very restricted cavities
  • Ultra-low profile LF unit with excellent bass extension
  • Vented tweeter with KEF's unique 'tangerine' waveguide for natural HF response and wide, even dispersion
  • Rigid flat diaphragm assures clean upper bass and mid-range response
  • Paintable Ultra-Thin Bezel (UTB) and magnetic grille to blend unobtrusively with décor
  • Fast, versatile installation on virtually any surface via dogleg
