Crafted along very similar lines to our Super 10A, the C10 is a masterfully compact standmount loudspeaker. Like every model in the Cardea series, it is thoughtfully designed to deliver superior communication skills, from top to bottom. Small in size it may be, but the C10 is one deeply groovy loudspeaker.
EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOM-MADE CROSSOVERS
Kudos’ one-of-a-kind drivers are custom designed in collaboration with leading European experts, SEAS. All four Cardea series models feature our Crescendo K2 fabric dome tweeter, a development of SEAS’ superb (and justifiably costly) Crescendo unit re-engineered exclusively for Kudos. The mid/bass drivers are unique to each model.
The drivers are precisely matched and seamlessly aligned to work together, as one, delivering an effortless ‘just right’ sound. You’ll know it when you hear it.
The 29mm Crescendo K2 fabric dome tweeter, driven from a six magnet array and with a moulded alloy back chamber, is based on the legendary (and justifiably costly) Crescendo unit from Norwegian specialists SEAS, but has been further developed by SEAS exclusively for Kudos. This is almost certainly one of the finest tweeters in the world, with an unrivalled ability to accurately reproduce high frequencies without smearing of fine detail or compression.
The newly-developed mid/bass driver incorporates a copper shorting ring in its voice coil designed to minimise eddy currents, as well as an aluminium phase plug to act as a heatsink.
Both drive units are unique to Kudos and are carefully matched to integrate seamlessly, requiring only a simple low-order crossover. In this case the crossover has been fully upgraded with new Mundorf inductors and non-inductive resistors, as well as Mundorf Supreme (gold/silver/oil) capacitors. These components are produced to very tight tolerances and are individually tested and hand selected.
The Super 10A’s reflex-ported cabinet is constructed from 18mm high density MDF specifically chosen for its acoustic properties. Internally, the cabinet is optimally damped to minimise resonance and externally, it is handsomely finished in a choice of real wood veneers or a satin white paint. Both drivers are neatly flush-mounted into the cabinet and the grille is held by magnets to maintain a clean appearance.
The easy 8 ohm impedance means that the Super 10A will perform seamlessly with a wide range of valve and solid state amplifiers.
