A year ago Kudos launched the Super 10, a development of the Cardea series stand-mount loudspeakers and now, a year later, Kudos has applied the same concept to their Cardea series 2-way floor-standing loudspeakers to produce the Super 20.
The Super 20 combines the Kudos Crescendo K2 tweeter from Kudos’ flagship Titan T88 loudspeaker together with a newly developed main driver which features a hand-treated paper cone, 26mm diameter voice coil, aluminium phase plug and a copper shorting ring to minimise eddy currents. The two drive units are unique to Kudos and have been developed to integrate seamlessly with a very simple crossover.
In the crossover itself Mundorf inductors and resistors are used as well as Mundorf Supreme gold, silver and oil capacitors.
The Super 20 cabinet is manufactured from 18mm high density MDF and finished with either real wood veneers, or a satin white paint. The reflex port is situated on the bottom of the cabinet to enable more flexibility in placement within the listening room; this incorporates the damped flexi port design from the Kudos Titan T88. The plinth provides a fixed boundary gap for the port to work optimally as well as providing additional stability. The plinth itself is a tri-laminate design of high density MDF, a damping compound and a steel base providing stability and mechanical grounding properties. Stainless steel spikes are also included for grounding the loudspeaker to the floor.
