The X3 uses the same high quality tweeter as its "baby brother" the X2, but marries it with a new 18cm (7") mid-bass driver. The latter's cone is made from a mixture of paper and reed fibers, combining inherent stiffness and natural damping with light weight to improve transient and dynamic response as well as overall clarity. A copper-clad voice coil further enhances transients and dynamics, while a copper shorting ring reduces distortion. A cast chassis gives the main driver optimal stability. Both drive units are of exceptional quality, manufactured exclusively for Kudos by Norwegian specialists SEAS. Excellent integration between the two drive units allows the use of a low order, high quality crossover for minimal interaction with the signal. The cabinet is constructed from 18mm high density MDF specifically chosen for its acoustic properties, and is carefully tuned to minimize coloration and time smear. The reflex port is situated on the bottom of the cabinet so that the base stand then provides a fixed boundary for the port to work optimally, as well as affording additional stability. The X3 uses its extra size to add improved bass extension and greater presentation scale over the X2, but maintains the open and accurate midrange and a subtly detailed treble. Designed to be easy to drive and to position within a room, the X3 brings out the energy, exuberance and life in a wide variety of music whatever the genre. Impedance is 8 ohm, response is 30Hz-25kHz in the average room, weight is 16Kg (35") each, height 845mm (33.3"), width 190mm (7.5"), depth 250mm (9.9"). I am selling these only because I've moved up the Kudos ladder to the Super 20As ($7,000 plus tax).
