HELIX K 10S
Shallow design – rich bass
The K 10S is the ultimate problem solver in realizing mainly flat and compact enclosure designs. Its extremely low installation depth opens up new possibilities for installation without making any acoustic compromises. Thanks to its sizeable double voice coil and low resonance frequency, the K 10S doesn’t need to hide from woofers with greater installation depth when it comes to bass performance.
Smart down to the very last detail.
In connection with the heavy-duty dual voice coil, the highly stiff sandwich paper cone converts amplifier power easily and without compression effects into loads of sound pressure and scores sonically with subtle beats.
A particular highlight: the magnet system has a threaded hole on the back and thus allows the woofer to be fixed to the enclosure's back panel. This way, housing vibrations can be effectively reduced even with thin walls because with flat constructions, every millimeter of construction depth counts.
The double voice-coil design offers more flexibility when selecting an appropriate power amp. Whether 1 x 4 Ohms, 2 x 2 Ohms, or 1 x 1 Ohm impedance – this low bass specialist makes any configuration easily possible.
"All inclusive" for the do-it-yourselfer
In addition to the high-quality connection terminal with gold-plated binding posts, a solid protective grille and gasket are also included.
For optimal bass performance in DIY installations, you can find recommendations for sealed and vented enclosures with all parameters, such as net volume, port tuning frequency, or DSP settings, in our technical data sheet.
