KEF KHT2005 Black casing sticky

My KEF KHT2005 'egg' speakers in black have become very sticky. I have just moved house, packed them in the original boxing but on unpacking they now have chunks of polystyrene stuck to them. Is there any way they can be cleaned, or is there anything that KEF can do? I think they're about 7 years old. Thanks.

What is the finish on the black matt speakers


Unscrew the front of the speaker, hold the casing over a baking tray, repeatedly wash and work the thinners into the casing with a clean paint brush.This will gradually remove the sticky coating leaving the surface smooth and clean. Don't forget to wear rubber gloves.

Please send me a diagram of how the wiring is to be set up on the back of the speakers


The red connector on the speaker should be connected to the Pos.(+) connection on the Receiver/Amp. The Black to the Neg. (-) connection. ( for the proper speaker) Front Left, Front Right,etc. All, or most paired wire has either a black stripe,different shape on one,or different colour wire(silver/copper) So if you hook up the Blk striped or silver to the Neg.(black terminal) on the speaker, do so at the other end (receiver ) If both speakers aren't hooked up the same, they will work, but there won't be as much Bass because the speakers will be out of phase.(when one speaker cone is moving out,the other will be moving inward.

How do you connect the back cables so the sound will come out right


There are four posts - two black and two red. They should be connected together, as shown in the picture. If you are missing the brass straps, simply use wire to reconnect the posts, black-black and red-red.

Then it's a simple matter of connecting the red (+) amplifier output to one of the red terminals, and the black (-) amplifier terminal to the black terminal on the KEF.

The KEF terminals can be seperated if you wish to "biamp" or "biwire" these speakers. Each black/red pair is dedicated to either the bass or the treble. For higher fidelity, some listeners prefer to run seperate wires from a single amplifier channel to each individual speaker input.clmrt5000_5.jpg

I have 2 KEF Q35 speakers, i have them wired up as normal on the outside ports, but there are another set of wiring ports labelled HF (one positive one negative) what are these for? please help!!


These are quite common, and are just separate connection for each speaker in the enclosure. Just bridge the connections red to red and black to black with cable (use something like 5amp house wiring cable) and then connect your cable from your amplifier to one of the "ports" See http://www.brilliancehifi.co.uk/how-to-bi-wire-speakers.htm As you can see you could "biwire" if you wanted go further and improve the sound quality

Cant connect my q35 speaker, help please!! Theres 4 connections??


Hi, They should have a gold bar "jumper"between the two black/and the two red connectors. If not, it is missing,but the reason for that is you can use seperate amps for the woofer and the tweeter/mid.Called "Bi-amping."You can just use a extra wire to connect both inputs together. Black to black and red to red.

Kef k160 sp3134 hi i was wondering if speaker parts canbe purchased for these. also i wastrying to figure out whether you access the speakers inside the cabinet. thecabinets are sowellmade it is not easy...


I have a good KEF K160 tower (one speaker) for sale. I purchased the pair and one had a blown woofer. After trying to replace/repair, I purchased a pair of KEF C40s and been happy ever since. The good K160 looks and sounds good. Grill and cabinet in good shape, both black finish. Other speaker cabinet is in poor condition. I'll sell the single (or both if you want to pay shipping) for $75. (Plus shipping, around $50 USA ground delivery) These are hard to find.
