The idea of building my own home cinema had been in the works for years, but the project itself broke ground in August 2020 and finished after just one year. Having been an installer in the industry, I had the know-how to do this all on my own. Preparation such as 3D modelling and configuring the projectors to make sure everything was in the right place, was several months of work. Next came gutting the room and bringing the ceiling down. Paint, flooring, audio proofing came next, but where the room really shines is the speaker selection. The theater hosts a 7.6.4 surround-sound format, completely consisting of KEF in-wall speakers.
The flagship speaker of the theater is the in-wall Ci-Reference speaker, the Ci5160REFM-THX. It the first set of KEF in-wall speakers to be THX Certified Dominus and among the very few that can achieve this ultimate standard worldwide. With a 12th-generation Uni-Q driver array with Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT), Ci5160REFM-THX delivers an immersive, high-fidelity soundstage with unmatched sonic excellence even for the most extensive home theatres and living rooms.
But there are options for everyone when choosing your KEF In-Walls, even on a budget. The Ci4100QL-THX is a fantastic option as well, at $599.99 each. Without the KEF in-walls, the theater would not be as immersive as it is. The KEF speakers are vital to creating a sound experience that matches the ultimate home cinema experience.
