KEF Reference 107/2s + KEF LS50s

Tomorrow I want to try something, and I seek advice about how to implement it. My KEF Reference 107/2 are biwired to Parasound JC 1 mono blocks. I'd like to try substituting a pair of KEF LS50s for the mid and HF drivers of the 107/2s. I propose to disconnect the XLR connections to the mid/HF drivers and connect the biwires that go to those sections to the LS50s. The 107/2s use a KUBE for crossover and equalization, and I propose to continue using that. Does my plan seem feasible?

Dear Mr. Grubb, please give us a call, we talked once about a dac I do believe. Anyway here is an answer to your Ref 1 question, we also have a demo pair of Kef 1 and 3 that might interest you.

Actually the Ref 600C does sound quite good with the Ref 1, or the Ref 3 or Ref 5

We have an all Kef Reference theater using the Kef Ref 3, before we had upgraded to the matching Reference center we were using the R series center.

The R series center is not quite as clear or as uncolored but the blend was very good and the R series center does sound excellent. The Reference center is wamer and more precise and images better and if you compare the two the Reference center is indeed a great step up, we had our Ref 3 with the R series for almost a year before we upgraded.

As per the older Kef 207.2, 205.2, 203.2 201.2 and the newer R series different story, the older Kef 200 series had a more rich midrange the newer models are cleaner hence the match wasn’t good.
