AWE is now shipping KEF's Ci200RR-THX architectural speaker. The ULTRA2 certified unit is the first in-ceiling offering from KEF to carry the THX badge, a widely recognised guarantee of performance and home cinema suitability. 

While the Ci200RR-THX is ideal for use in dedicated 5.1 or 7.1 home theatre systems, it can also function as a 'music only' speaker. The Ci200RR-THX  employs KEF's trademark Uni-Q driver array, comprising a 38mm vented aluminium tweeter and 'tangerine waveguide', mounted centrally within a 200mm aluminium bass/mid driver. The Ci200RR also embraces KEF's UTB (Ultra-Thin Bezel) design, allowing it to seamlessly blend into any interior space; installers should note that it employs the same cut out and outside diameter as other KEF 200mm speakers.

Ci 200RR-THX Half Grille Crop"We were so impressed by the sound of the KEF Ci200RR-THX that we decided to specify nine of them for our new show apartment," enthused James Drummie, Product Manager at AWE. "Due to their advanced construction, the traditional sweet spot of listening is extended far beyond traditional in-ceiling units. Sonic dispersion is actually so wide that that effectively everyone gets the best sound, regardless of where they are positioned in the room."
