Legend's Kurlette subwoofer adds powerful, deep yet tightly controlled bass to any home theatre system producing extra excitement and drama for the enjoyment of your movies. It combines especially well with the famous fast open sound other Legend loudspeakers in our home theatre systems.
The new Kurlette is based on the legendary Kurlo subwoofer. Like its bigger brother, the Kurlette uses a sealed cabinet for improved speed and transient response. We have added a small amount of electronic equalisation so that the frequency response is flat to nearly 25 Hz below which it has been rolled of rapidly to avoid cone damage. At the top end, the frequency response can be rolled off from 40 - 160 Hz at -12 dB/octave.
The Kurlette's cabinets are very solidly built to minimise secondary vibrations that can muddle the sound. We use 18mm MDF on the side and back panel and 40 mm of MDF on the front panel. Cabinet strength is further increased by extensive asymmetric bracing; and damping is increased by addition of constrained-layer damping. Sound waves inside the cabinet are dispersed by a proprietary technique and absorbed by Australian wool.
The Kurlette uses a 10" (25cm) extra-long throw bass-driver. It has a very large voice-coil and huge 3 Kg magnet to give a linear cone excursion of 20mm. This makes it equivalent to a 12" unit having a normal excursion of 6-8mm and so the bass driver will reproduce the loudest, deepest sounds and musical notes with superb ease. The built-in power has 250W peak with large current supply and heat-sink giving huge reserves of power for the long-throw drive unit. It can be connected either directly to your processor or pre-amp (at line level) or to a pair of speaker outputs from your main amplifier. It also has variable volume and upper frequency control; phase control; and optional automatic power-up mode.
