Thank you guys for your opinions.

So we should go for d&b J's and the cardioid subs.

While there might be a consensus here at least, in the end you have to live with the decision. Another factor to consider that wasn't raised in the replies was factory support; if I read your profile right you are from China, where d&b has 3 offices & a headquarters in HK. I know Freddie To & Daniel Chan and they are top guys. Also consider that the 5 year warranty on d&b products is far superior to comparable other manufacturers.

 The Kudo needed a lot of EQ to sound "good" and really ran out of gas quickly. They were powered properly with Lab Gruppen amps, and had the latest DSP settings on the XTA driving them.


These are not the latest DSP settings. The new KUDO settings I am reffering to are when you use the system with the new LA8 amps. There is a big improvement in sould quality and perceived SPL with the new presets.

+1. They are also voiced like V-dosc/K1 now which is why they are part of the K1 "system".


 Lower SPL but asymmetrical and horizontal arrays give you options with the Kudo you don't get with the V's and J's. Apples and oranges.

Hi Marty. I do & the answer is no, they are made in Germany still. There might be some small sub-components (chips? circuit boards?) for the D12 & D6 amplifiers made there, but those are assembled, tested & shipped from Backnang...
