Pros

Front bass ports provide excellent low-end resonance - foam bungs offered controlled muffling for optimal response

1 agrees

Overall construction quality is fantastic - back and sides of enclosure form a continuous curve, promoting stiffness and reducing lateral standing waves

1 agrees

Wide variety of wood-print options tailors the unit to a wide variety of tastes and room themes - real wood veneers provide even further options

1 agrees

Wire-link connectivity provide increased reliability between terminal components - much preferred to brass strips used on many lower-quality units

1 agrees

Excellent tonal balance at low to mid volume levels - frequencies are smooth and clear, especially amongst spoken-word dialogue and vocal music

Cons

Overall low-end outputting is somewhat disappointing - missing presence and drive, even when positioned correctly

1 agrees

Not recommended for listening at maximum volume levels - unwanted coloration and "aggressive" overtones begin to appear between the 8-10 levels

The KEF Classic iQ70 is a full-range floorstanding speaker. This is an expansion of the KEF Classic iQ50 design, with similar components that have seen an increase in size and power. A 6.5 inch low-frequency drive unit works with a 6.5 inch Uni-Q that is coupled with a 0.75 inch tweeter for mids and highs. This creates a frequency response ranging from 36Hz up to 40kHz, and allows signals as strong as 150 watts to be sent to the speaker. A high 8 ohm impedance and magnetic shielding work together to keep the signal as clean as possible.
