I listened to these speakers and they do sound quite well...very balanced. I'm curious as to how the q500 compares to the Kef q900 performance wise. I read another review here

They also gave the 900 a favorable review, although they reviewed it not with music but strictly for watching movies.

You say that the width is 14 inches in the text.

The manufacturer says 9.6 inches.

It looks more like 9.6" in the pictures.

One measurement is without the plinth.

Other measurement is with the plinth.

The spikes did not come pre-installed and its up to the user to either screw them in from the top to take advantage of the spike,  or screw them in from the bottom for a wood friendly foot.

I purchased KEF Q900 11 years ago based on Kal's review here. And, they still serve me with great musical satisfaction. I think my electronics are now about 10x in cost vs what I paid for the pair of Q900. So far these speakers scaled up nicely with each equipment upgrade. Sure, I will eventually upgrade. But, for casual listening while working from home, they are great.
