Hi,

I'm looking at purchasing a pair of used Vifa P21wo-10 8" woofers that were supposedly pulled from a pair of KEFs. Apparently the model is unklnown but seller said it also had a passive driver.

Would anyone have an idea what model KEF that would have been?
Did KEF use Vifa woofers?

I know they did use other brands for tweeters.

Thanks from Canada.

In the main KEF used their own drivers except for the cheaper ranges later in their history. They never used Vifa woofers... which KEF loudspeaker have you got?

It was probably a B200, these are different beasts as this link will show.

I'm just buying the Vifa woofers as replacements for a speaker that's not KEF.
Seller said he believes they were from a KEF model that was salvaged for parts but not sure. That's why I was curious because I didn't think KEF used Vifa Woofers.

Thanks for the confirmation.

+1 on that. I don't recall KEF ever using VIFA drivers.
