Strange combo, a 15 inch woofer with only a 300 watts amp (Kube 15 MIE).
 
The KC92 does not share the same magnet as the KC62 does. Is a more traditional back-to-back configuration.

Looks like the KC92 is cheaper in the US. $1999


But the 15 MIE about same with exchange rate? $1399

Tough pricing. With 2k usd in the US one can buy 2 x SVS SB-2000 Pro for 900 usd each and fine tune them with full PEQ on the SVS Bluetooth app.
 
And very similar they are have to download the manuals later to spot the differences ?
The only difference I could see is that the KC92 has a trigger input (and associated mode switch), the KF92 doesn't. There's also a mysterious firmware update port...

Different customer. Small, "life style" subs are what they are. And many customers like to have the same brand for all their speakers for whatever their reasons are.

Seems like some of the elements of the 62 have been taken to the new 92. Until we have measurements, we will not know how meaningful have been those changes.

It seems like the DSP has been updated on all the series, but I still miss a dual opposed larger subwoofer (10 or 12 inches).
 
Not sure if the original KF92 had this P-Flex surround.

I don't think so but not 100% sure.

original KF92 dont have P-FLEX


P-flex is literally why the KC 92 is ''KC'' instead of KF

This is the real deal subwoofer, P-Flex is very important. KC62 perform very well for a 6.5'' woofer, now it's dual 9''.

Pd: The surround P-flex is huuuuge

Dual 6,5” in the KC62 ( with common magnet )

Specs has not changed between kf and kc92 so we must wait for proper measurement by a third party .

Would predict lower distortion and possibly more capable at lower frequencies.

Say more about how bad specs from manufacturers are even good ones ?
 
I still want something in between the KC62 and KC92. KEF certainly has the ability to make a KC82, and I want... two.

Wrong... A SVS SB 1000 Pro is sized only slightly larger than the Kube 8 MIE but has better specs than the 12 MIE.
