Features


Bring your TV to life with superb hi-fi quality sound

Vocals so realistic they sound live. Sound effects that keep you on the edge of your seat. Music that seems like the performers are there with you in the room. With KEF’s new V Series, you’ll get more from your favourite shows than you ever thought possible.


KEF's award-winning acoustic technology

With an unrivalled record of design innovation and countless awards to prove it, KEF has led the home entertainment revolution from the start – and in the ultra-slim new V300, you’ll hear what a difference advanced technology can make from the moment you switch on.

Four patented ultra-slim bass drivers

A pair of KEF’s patented ultra-low profile high performance bass drivers on each side of your TV delivers startlingly clear, assertive and accurate bass/midrange response.

Two Vented tweeters with 'tangerine' waveguide

KEF’s famously natural-sounding aluminium dome tweeter assures flawless vocals. It's vented to eliminate distortion, even played loud, and by distributing the output evenly across a wider angle, the 'tangerine' waveguide allows the whole family to enjoy the same sound quality, wherever they sit.



Class D digital amplifier

With integral digital amplifiers, you don't need another amp or AV receiver to enjoy true hi-fi sound. Set-up is easy, and everything can be controlled by your existing TV remote.

CD quality sound

Richly detailed, spacious and stunningly accurate, the sound quality gives recordings the depth and immediacy of a live performance.

Even bigger bass

For even more bass extension, there's the option of adding any KEF subwoofer - the output is also easily adjustable through the same TV remote.


Easy 'plug-and-play' and controlled by your own TV remote*

Everything about the new V300 is designed to make life easier as well as more pleasurable - and it only takes a few minutes to set up. All you have to do is place the speakers on either side of the screen, plug into a power source and connect the activation module to your TV using the HDMI cable provided, and you're ready to go. TVs without ARC (HDMI 1.4) will require an optical cable, which is widely available but not included as standard.

Ultra-slim profile to match your TV

Just 35mm (1.4 in.) thick – the elegantly minimalist V300 speakers are styled to blend unobtrusively with your screen.

Complete freedom of positioning

Whether your screen is on the wall or standing on a console, V300 speakers have the mounting options to match. They look good on the wall next to the screen, on any flat surface using the discreet desk stands included, or on the floor with the optional floor stands.

At only 24mm (0.9 in.) deep, the low profile activation module is also slim enough to mount on the back of your TV, on your TV console or in-wall (using the optional mounting kit).

The switchable EQ modes feature on the back of the activation module, and together with KEF's ingenious Selecta-mount™ system designed for the optional floor stands, they allow you to optimise the bass response and sound balance according to your speakers' placement, whether freestanding or mounted against the wall.

Everything about the new V Series is designed to make life easier as well as more pleasurable - and it only takes a few minutes to set up.

No room for two speakers on the sides? Take a look at our V720W system or V700.
