Hi Dear Support Team I just bought KEF Q300 speaker from online market in US and ship that speakers to Malaysia. Once I got it found that the HF of one speaker is not functioning. Please help me with...


Since even the KEF website has no manual for this model http://www.kef.com/us/support/download we're on our own.

In the picture of the rear panel look closely at the speaker posts and those silly link knobs for each one. Unless you're biwiring (BUY wiring) those minus contacts should be electrically connected to each other and the positives to each other. Most other speakers with this dubious capability have simply jumper bars in place to ensure continuity.

http://www.enjoyaudio.com/zbxe/?document_srl=2781068

I'm thinking you either have a mis-set Link Knob or one of them has simply failed. With volume turned down to something medium try manipulating them to see if the HF driver wakes up.

You can prove that the HF driver works or not by attaching the speaker wire directly to it (top pair).

No matter what the result I would advise you to contact them and demand a manual be made public.

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.

Our KEF Kit100 stopped playing discs, both music and dvds. It says READ for a long time then says NO DISC. Any suggestions?


Your DVD drive is bad. Part number 4111-1121-0 .You might still be able to order a replacement from
Encompass Parts. $95 log in under guest. No tech account needed. Simple to replace. Just like a cd/dvd ROM drive for a computer. Might also check out ebay. Main unit arount $50. Subs usualy have problems,so they sell the main unit.

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.
Cheers
Martin

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.

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.

Kef Q Series iQ1 problem


You may have broken the cross over, which is fixable by an service agent, or you may have damaged the voice coil in the mid driver. you can check this by sofly pushing the main driver in, making sure that you done push the cone, if there is a lot of resistance then you have damaged the voice coil, and you will need to replace the driver.
