KEF Reference 103/2 - Bookshelf Monitors
The KEF Reference series speakers have set many standards, and received hundreds of awards and accolades from reviewers over many decades. KEF (Kent Engineering & Foundry) was formed 60 years ago by Raymond Cooke in Maidstone, Kent, UK. In 1966, KEF developed a new line of drivers for use in the burgeoning broadcast business spearheaded by the BBC. KEF's stamp on the BBC LS3/5A monitor, and the development of the first B110 composite cone driver, immediately established the company in the industry.
In the 1980s, KEF introduced the Model 103/2 which was the successor to the highly regarded Reference 103. The Reference 103/2 utilized the same two-way closed-box format, housing an 8” bextrene coned bass driver which used the new three mounting-point chassis to allow mechanical decoupling from the cabinet.
