Kudos Titan 808 Loudspeaker (Pair)
Exceptional, Custom-Made Drivers
The Titan series features drive units crafted exclusively for Kudos by world-leading specialists SEAS. All four Titans share the same superb K3 tweeter, a version of a legendary SEAS unit specially re-engineered to tailor its capabilities for the Titans. The 808’s mid/bass driver and duo of bass drivers are completely unique to this loudspeaker. All of the drivers are precisely matched and aligned to work seamlessly, as one. The result? An effortless ‘just right’ sound. When you hear it, you’ll know it.
Low-Order Crossovers and Minimal Design for Purer Sound
The purer the signal, the truer the sound. A Kudos loudspeaker preserves a clean and clear audio signal by favouring a minimal design with their trademark, low-order crossover. The Titan 808’s superior quality components are tailored specifically for Kudos to stringent tolerances. They include Mundorf’s MResist Supreme resistors and air-core foil inductors, and ClarityCap’s unique CopperConnect technology capacitors.
The best designs are a marriage of form and function. In the Titan 808, the tweeter and mid/bass drivers, and the two bass drivers, are housed separately in independent cabinets, delivering remarkable musical clarity even at high volumes. The Titans’ modernist design blends effortlessly into the contemporary home. Concealed within is highly a complex system of differential panel resonance control: while keeping a rigorously tight grip on any and all unwanted vibrations, this smart system gives full and free rein to the natural dynamics of your music.
Isobaric with Fixed Boundary Loading
Bass is key to how we hear music, so the Titan series goes above and beyond in ensuring superior sound at the all-important lower end. The Titan 808’s isobaric and fixed boundary bass reflex loading is cleverly engineered to deliver a more agile, nuanced, textured and detailed bass reproduction.
Active Configuration (Upgradeable)
The Titan series is configured to allow simple by-passing of the internal crossover for active operation with leading electronics including Linn Exakt, Devialet Expert and Naim SNAXO. Active operation opens up a wider upgrade path and enables a variety of performance and personalisation enhancing capabilities.
