X3

Hot on the heels of our X2 ‘baby’ floorstander, the X3 goes above and beyond with its larger size, extended bass and exciting dynamic range. The X3 uses its extra size to add enhanced bass extension and greater presentation scale over the X2, while retaining the open and accurate midrange and a subtly detailed treble. Designed to be easy to drive and to position within a room, the X3 effortlessly brings out the energy, exuberance and life in an unlimited variety of music, whatever your favourite genre.

 

EXCEPTIONAL, CUSTOM-MADE CROSSOVERS

Kudos’ unique drivers are custom designed in collaboration with leading Norwegian experts, SEAS. The X3 features the same tweeter as its ‘baby brother’ the X2, but marries it with a new 18cm mid/bass driver for extended bass, housed in a cast chassis for excellent stability. The drivers are carefully matched and precisely aligned to work seamlessly as one.

 

LOW-ORDER CROSSOVER AND MINIMAL
DESIGN FOR A 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 our trademark, low-order crossover. The X series’ superb quality components, including Mundorf inductors and resistors, and ClarityCap capacitors, are tailored specifically for Kudos to stringent tolerances.

 

INTERIOR DESIGN

The X3’s cabinet is constructed from 18mm high density MDF specifically chosen for its acoustic properties, and is carefully tuned to minimise cabinet colouration and time smear. The reflex port is situated on the bottom of the cabinet so that the plinth then provides a fixed boundary gap for the port to work optimally, as well as providing additional stability.

FIXED BOUNDARY BASS REFLEX LOADING

Since bass plays such a powerful role in how we hear music, our X series pays particular attention to delivering superior sound at the all-important lower end. The X3’s fixed boundary bass reflex loading is key to a more agile, nuanced, textured and detailed bass reproduction.
