  • Specifications


With the same 125mm (5-in.) Uni-Q point source driver array flanked by two powerful 165mm (6.5-in.) bass drivers, in a closed-box design. REFERENCE 2c reveals all the subtleties embedded in movie soundtracks and music recordings with the same astonishing realism and clarity as the larger REFERENCE 4c. The dynamics, spatial precision and dispersion characteristics are just as outstanding, with the innovative configuration of advanced drivers flawlessly integrating LF, MF and HF response to reproduce every detail of the recorded signal with total fidelity.

In smaller environments, REFERENCE 2c has the power to immerse you in your music or the action on screen as much as its larger sibling. For clarity, detail and emotional depth, it's a revelation.


The standard by which others are judged, and to which they aspire. The perfect reproduction of recorded sound is what KEF's legendary THE REFERENCE Series has always stood for. And after 40 years of continuous development, THE REFERENCE has earned its name as the yardstick of high-end acoustic engineering.

If you're a perfectionist when it comes to enjoying movies or music, it's the one name that towers above the rest. THE REFERENCE. It speaks for itself.
