True 3-Way Speaker

A 3-way speaker system offers numerous benefits due to its precise allocation of frequencies to three distinct drivers, each tailored for bass, midrange, and treble. This meticulous distribution guarantees a precise and detailed rendering of sound throughout the entire spectrum. This design minimizes frequency interference, reduces distortion, and ultimately results in a clearer, more refined audio quality. 

Cast Chassis Concentric Driver

An extended wide-surround tweeter elevates its range in both low and high frequencies, facilitating smoother integration with the midrange. A completely revamped midrange driver, equipped with a larger diameter voice coil, vented rear spider, and a fresh neodymium magnet, enhances excursion and precision in handling midrange frequencies. Additionally, a newly crafted cast chassis aims to reduce cone reflections, significantly improving overall clarity.

Compound Curvature Woofer

Markedly enhancing low-end reproduction, this recently developed bass driver showcases a single-piece compound curvature aluminum cone alongside a sizable rear vented magnet, ensuring heightened linearity and superior low-frequency response compared to any preceding Uni-Fi bookshelf speaker.

Dual Flared Slot Port

The newly introduced dual flared slot vent enables enhanced bass dynamics by delivering higher bass output with reduced noise levels.

Premium Finishes

Uni-Fi Reference showcases premium finishes, offering a Walnut cabinet paired with a black painted front baffle, or an Oak cabinet complemented by a white painted front baffle ensuring these speakers blend seamlessly into any home decor, making a statement without taking up unnecessary space.

Full Perimeter Bracing

A newly implemented full perimeter brace, connecting the top, bottom, and side panels, effectively reduces cabinet vibrations, resulting in minimized audio coloration within the cabinet.
