KEF KM1 amplified loudspeaker, 1982. Very high power, multi-amp, multi driver loudspeaker. Possibly used for Radio 1 Roadshow.

The KM1 loudspeaker system was developed for the BBC in response to a need for a high level monitoring loudspeaker to be used in pop studios. Prototypes were installed at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios in the spring of 1982 and proved highly satisfactory for all types of music.
