Ci160SS

All KEF speakers are timbre-matched, with KEF's extensive range of home speakers, so any combination you specify for different listening areas will have the same tonal colour for a perfectly consistent soundstage. With only a few simple steps and KEF's unique design features, Ci Classic models can be fitted quickly, with no special skills. Once the hole is cut and the cable run, the area is soon flooded with great high definition sound.


Fast and Easy to Install

KEF's Ci loudspeaker design makes them so quick and easy to install that once the wire is run and the hole is cut in your wall or ceiling you can be listening to music in less than two minutes.
