Question about KEF Audio Audio Players & Recorders

3 Answers

I have to replace 2 Uni-Q complete drivers of a pair of Kef Q55. I need to know in which other Kef models, the same Uni-Q couple (midrange+tweeter) have been used. I would like to find a used replacement because the new is more expensive than speakers themselves. thank you

    Excuse me. Did I pay 13 USD to get a solution like: "look on eBay"??



    I need to know what other Kef speakers models use the same tweeter and the same midrange as the Q55 model. When you will have told me, THEN I will know what to look for on eBay!

  • mrddtt Feb 05, 2010

    wrong. Nothing to do with! Years of manifacturing, colors even diameters are different.

    Incredible how many ways of ripping people off you can find on the web!

  • mrddtt Feb 05, 2010

    Unbeliavable! I got a "look on eBay" answer and then a completely wrong "further" assistance!

    Two possibilities: you think I am an idiot or you are an idiot.

    I am pretty sure its solution two

Most of the current models that KEF produces have changed from the 160mm driver to the 165mm driver. You could make the 165mm work however that wasn't your question. There are no current models that use the 160mm polypropylene mid/bass driver. There is however the Ci160.2Q. Not exactly identical to your current drivers but they are the same impedance, sensitivity is -2dB and the power handling per driver is only 100 watts suggested. Since your model is discontinued I would suggest this driver because who knows what you will get on auction sites or other forms of sales. Finally your best bet would be to call KEF technical support. They are obviously the best source for the answer you seek.

there is the link to that driver

there is the link to your current setup.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

You could take a look around on www.ebay.com; www.ecost.com; www.amazon.com; and a couple of other sites.

You will get a great deal I bet.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

Do remember to rate this solution.

I have a set of KEF q55.2's that both could use some fixing up. I also have a pair of q15 bookshelf's and I think I need tweeters for all 4 and also the plastic piece and port that goes around the top...


Google search for "martin sound products" they are a company that resides in Cleveland Ohio, they have all the parts you need, you can even buy reconing materials for various sizes of speakers. they sell wholesale, but all you need to do is fill out the paper work and they will send you a catalog and price sheet. there prices are very fair and the products range from "economy" to " high end". another option is Seismic Audio, they have a "EBAY" store as well as regular catalog ordering, great company, but they sell mostly higher end products, so if you want high output loud speakers, they are the ones for you. good luck

Midrange and tweeter driver not hit the the high range.


Are u sure u haven't messed up with the polarity of the speakers while rewiring the speakers? If all is ok and only u find that the speakers are not so vibrant as the other there cud be a possibility that the coil has shifted inside the magnet and is either scratching or not aligned. Also hav a look at the crossover

Blown kef q55.2 tweeter, is replacement possible?


The tweater on my Q55.2 blew as well. I went into a shop in NYC and they tried to charge me $225 for a new tweater, so I took it home and called up Kef. They sent me out a new tweater for $35 and instructions on how to solder it in.
It took all of 10 mins to replace and they are working fine. I've never soldered anything before and it was simple.

You have to test them, either should work fine (as in use either pair) if that doesn't work connect one pair at a time and listen for the difference, one pair might be for factory midrange and other for tweeter.. there are two different wiring configurations...

Replacement KEF Coda III TWEETER Type SP1087


Go here and find a nice substitute. Many to choose from and it may be better to purchase a pair of them rather than have mis-matched ones. They should be inexpensive enough for you, as low as $2 up to $480. You just need the size of the mounting hole to find a replacement though.
