Hi everyone!

Does anybody have a frequency response chart for the KEF Concerto speakers, possibly from KEF literature? I am thinking about setting up a small mastering room and would like to know if these would be suitable as another set of monitors. Is anybody using these in this application (recording, mixing?)?

Thanks,
Amos

As fine as the KEF Concerto is, I doubt if you would be able to use it at high enough levels without damaging them. I use 4th order crossovers and these certainly help power handling. Also make sure you have the newer type B139 Bass units fitted. The aperture cut out does not make them interchangeable between older and newer types..
Also very loosely filling the rest of the cabinet does indeed tighten up the bass, BAF wadding or preferably long haired wool to Dr Bailey’s specification can provide some fine tuning.
KEF purists will probably shoot me for this...

Enjoy!
