    I bet those KEF's are smoooooth.

    Hi Steve,

    They are smooth. Based on things I heard about the Q100's, I thought they'd be tipped up or bright but, thankfully, they're very well balanced with gobs of detail. Tonal accuracy is quite good. I guess KEF worked hard on changing the reproduction between the previous model & the current model. I like them quite a bit!

    Get yourself some grating, nylon bushings (available in various diameters and lengths) and use zip ties to secure. You can even trim cables to exact length if desired.

    You can also use thin wall plastic pipe (not schedule 40), slit it if you have to, use 45 and 90 degree fittings (you can slit them and re-glue together) and cover with techflex.
