Given that subwoofer placement is half art and half science, the more placement options, the easier it will be to eliminate bass dead-spots, an unfortunate but common side-effect of bouncing low-frequency sounds around a room.
Uni-Core uses two dual force-canceling drivers with concentrically arranged, overlapping voice coils, that are driven by a single motor to provide what KEF claims is stunning bass performance from a small enclosure.
“The Uni-core is a breakthrough technology for KEF because it allows us to pack two drivers into a tighter space without compromising their performance.”
That saved space provides the drivers far more excursion than an equivalent-sized, force-canceling design, KEF claims, which unlocks more output and depth from much less space.
When Digital Trends asked how, exactly, the Uni-Core design could move as much air as a traditional big-box subwoofer, we were told the details would soon be revealed: Uni-Core technology will be at the heart of a new KEF product that is expected to debut later this month.
