    No, they didn't add that until 1997, these were bought in 1994. Elegant is the right word for sure.

    Yes they are, you can find the manual for them on KEFs website but I'll add the cutaway from it here:

    On purpose, they want to fit to modern spaces with their designs and are doing rather well. Any of Blades visually works for us too.

    Well... their design is acoustically modeled. Genelec 8XXX series and the Ones follow the same form.

    Interesting... like an embedded dual helmholtz resonator. I wonder how much sound escapes through the upper driver.

    My understanding is the upper drivers are in their own sealed pods as you can see in this illustration of a model four:

    Interesting. If I were to play armchair designer, I'd like to try an isobaric woofer configuration. Probably no better in terms of complexity, but more compact at least.

    also makes me wonder if there's any driver-to-magnet isobaric open baffle setups floating around.

    edit - yeah, not a great idea.
