Default BNIB: RARE UK KEF KAR 160Q Black cone!

Here I have for sale brand new and extremely rare black coned KEF KAR 160Q speakers in their original box.
I'm looking for 200 inc shipping via postal cheque or paypal as I'm aware these are highly valuable.

These speakers sound brilliant I tested them briefly on a home amp and they sound very nice indeed, the detail on the treble is hard to beat.

PHOTOS TO COME SOON

IMO, the best speakers ever marketed for car audio.

Good price, too; you wouldn't be able to get my set for 400USD!

(No relation to the seller, just relating my experience with the product.)

Thanks Pallas, I should mention the significance of the black cone; only a very small number of these speakers were produced in the UK before KEF had their speakers assembled in Japan under a different brand, Coustics, where quality slumped.

If anyone is interested but the thumbnails won't enlarge please let me know.

Hi Jozua,

I would imagine that these speakers would have a high Q suiting them to smaller enclosures (since they are designed for a car door), perhaps if you contacted KEF they might pass some T&S parameters to you.
There were none made available however, as they weren't expecting people to redesign their car doors for them...
