Super 10

Derek Gilligan has been designing high quality loudspeakers for 21 years and has developed the Cardea Super 10 to celebrate this anniversary.  The Super 10 is designed without compromise and uses the very finest quality components.

The Super 10 shares the same 12 litre cabinets with the C10, Kudos' established stand-mount reference.   The drive units are some of the best in the world; produced for Kudos by SEAS in Norway – a company with almost 60 years of expertise in this field.  The K2 tweeter is developed exclusively for Kudos from the famous Crescendo unit.  The main drive unit, developed by Kudos and manufactured by SEAS features a copper shorting ring to minimise eddy currents, an aluminium phase plug to act as a heat-sink and a hand-treated paper cone.  This drive unit has been specifically designed for this application and to integrate superbly with the K2 tweeter.

Designing the drive units to integrate seamlessly allows the use of a minimal, low-order crossover reducing phase errors, blurring and other unwanted artefacts.  Each crossover component has been carefully tested and selected for its performance in the Super 10 including Mundorf inductors, resistors, and ‘Mcap® Supreme Silver/Gold/Oil’ capacitors.  These parts are produced to extremely tight tolerances and then hand-matched for use in the Super 10. The Chord Company internal wiring is carefully chosen for its musicality and resistance to the effects of vibration.
