The Kudos Titan 707 is a little smaller than the now legendary 808. Most significantly, it’s a single box design, a simple columnar speaker with just enough detailing to give it style and presence.
All three members of the Titan family feature world class drive units crafted exclusively for Kudos by renowned Norwegian specialists SEAS.
In fact, all three models share the same superb quality K3 tweeter – a unique SEAS-Kudos design. Based on SEAS legendary 29mm Crescendo K2 fabric dome tweeter, the K3 has undergone significant further development to precisely tailor its capabilities for the Kudos Titan design. Enhanced features include an improved magnet system with copper shorting rings, a completely new resonance chamber and a new face plate profile, all engineered to deliver and even sharper, more dynamic and musically detailed performance.
The Titan 707’s twin mid-bass drivers, in contrast, are brand new and totally unique to the 707. Their high quality hard paper cones are double coated to ensure superior stiffness while at the same time preserving the natural damping properties of paper. The two drivers are positioned in an isobaric arrangement: the second driver is placed internally back-to-back with the first, enabling a significantly improved bass response while minimising bass distortion.
Kudos’ trademark minimalist, low order crossover is of course a key feature, made possible by our seamless matching of the drive units. Alternatively, the Titan 707’s crossover has been engineered such that it can be completlely by-passed in order to facilitate active operation with selected systems including Linn Exakt and Devialet Expert (see below for further details).
While, as mentioned above, the Titan 707 is a single-box design (compared to the 808’s upper and lower cabinets), its structure remains impressively neutral. Its deceptively complex constrained layer damping in the plinth and side panels is cleverly designed to allow a stunningly convincing, true-to-life sound.
