The CPD 10 is also part of the KS Audio CPD Series of FIR CONTROL DSP active systems, which includes the unique directivity of HDSP technology. This results in the highest possible sound pressure level (extending even into the lower frequency ranges), while simultaneously having the lightest weight possible. The DSP controller works with KS Audio Firtec DSP technology for true-impulse-correct reproduction of your audio. There are two integrated amplifiers -- 800W RMS for the 10” woofer and 200W RMS for the 1.4” tweeter -- with a peak performance of 2,000W!
The sound dispersion design of the HDSP mid / high frequency horn and its electronic blending with the bass / midrange driver is one-of-a-kind. The HDSP design results in multiple integrated dispersion angles that widen downwards towards the near field of the speaker, while maintaining tight pattern control and long throw capability. The vertical bending of the HF wave front continues through the cut-off frequency as well as the crossover frequency, without any variance in the frequency response. This dispersion means that even with only two speakers, the audience at the back of the venue will enjoy the same quality and "recording studio level" definition as people in close proximity to the loudspeakers.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼The electronics are comprised of a switch mode power supply with Power-Factor-Correction, a “cold” PWM amplifier for bass / midrange performance, and an analog FET amplifier with the best audio characteristics for the mid-high compression driver. Both the 10” long throw woofer and the 1.4” compression driver have strong--but light--Neodymium magnets. The 3” membrane of the compression driver consists of a special aluminum alloy that has a clearly reduced distortion factor in comparison to a titanium membrane.
￼￼With the CPD 10, KS Audio has responded to the demanding needs of the professional live sound engineer or venue owner with a universal self-powered loudspeaker producing the highest audio quality in a compact size. There are many applications in which the CPD 10 can be used: theater, live stage music, in large rooms or tents, as a delay system for far away areas, or as a compact middle-high frequency system in combination with one of the many KS Audio subwoofers (we recommend the CPD W1 subwoofer).
Like all KS Audio systems, the cabinet is built from birch plywood with an extremely robust charcoal colored polyurethane coating. At your request the finish available can be changed to any desired color from the RAL color charts. Another special feature is the two multipurpose fittings on the back of the speaker, which allow the installation of different fly-ware and connectors, which are safely interlocked by means of quick release push-pins. There is a pole mount in the bottom of the cabinet and a protective steel grill on the front (with or without acoustic foam).
The rear mounted 2-way Firtec DSP amplifier operates very efficiently without the need of a cooling fan. The FIR crossover and filter are specially matched to the drivers, with corresponding compressors and limiters to ensure safe operation. The electronically balanced input is in the form of XLR connectors. The control panel also has a digital volume control to individually adjust for each venue and a digital delay reaching up to 40m for decentralized PA systems. There is a Lo Cut switch for speech reproduction or for adding a subwoofer to the system. Operation and set-up with a PC using the KS Audio Remote 3 Software is also possible over an ethernet connection. The power supply on the CPD 10 operates on all AC 110-240V electrical supplies.
The starting current is electronically limited. There are two PowerCON F+M connectors which allows you to link additional KS Audio CPD products, such as a CPD subwoofer.
C 10: Same as CPD 10 but unpowered.
