Eminence Kappa Pro-10A 10" Cast Frame Driver
Eminence Kappa Pro-10A 10" Cast Frame Driver is rated 4.1667 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from very loudonly giving it 110 watts and it just screams gonna get a stronger amp for it later
Date published: 2015-05-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Choice For Sound Reinforcement Applications-I load these in suspended, biamped and passively crossed-over vented enclosures for installations that require the highest fidelity and output, but also require small cabinet size. Typically my designs use (2) woofers for Mains enclosures and singles for delays.I also frequently use Eminence Kappa Pro 12A's for greater mid-bass and low frequency extension when cabinet size requirements are less restrictive. You will be hard-pressed to find a comparable woofer for the money from anyone else with these combined specifications, quality and warranty.The reviews I've read on this page from individuals using these as speakers for Bass guitar should be put in perspective. Musical instrument loudspeakers (sound producers) in use are an extension of the instrument itself, formulated and designed for their specific application.Eminence has literally dozens of choices in the M.I. category that would be more suitable than the Kappa Pro's, or other sound reinforcement-type (sound re-producer) loudspeaker. Basing an application decision on Xmax, thermal power ratings or other electro-mechanical specifications of any loudspeaker is not advisable....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BeastThis driver will put out obscene volumes with a smooth response when properly loaded. This is not a bass driver and if stuffed into whatever cabinet you have around, will be disappointing. Do the math or use Eminence's stock designs. I put it in a vented cabinet crossed over at 150Hz using a Lab12 for the bottom end and a compression driver/horn for top end, with 950 watts available from a Crown K2 and the result is stunning. Clarity and dynamics abundant from my 5-string Warmoth bass. Transients are alarming. This is the goods.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works fine in my SWR super redheadI can play my electric 5 string bass and electric upright with very good articulation. It can handle the low, mid and highs very well. They are heavier to haul around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong performerUsing these in a W-T-W column-like PA topsides. The tweeter is a Fountek Neo 5. This system just screams big clean forward sound. I crossover with a digital system at 90hz and bump the bottom end a bit below 160 to flatten things out, as these start rolling off some below 200hz. I cross the topend around 2.1k and the ribbon takes over. These have got the finesse to run smoothly into the midrange yet enough grunt to pump out lots of upper bass and voice range. My QSC RMX 2450 (a pretty good brute itself) clips electrically before these things do mechanically. A little pricey but built like a tank. Get yourself some handtrucks...these suckers are heavy for a 10" driver...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bass Guitar + Kappa Pro 10A = cone failureI bought 2 of these to go in an Avatar 2X10 cabinet for those times when I didn't need or want to haul my 2 SWR Goliath III cabinets. One of them had problems right out of the box because only half of the spider was glued on. I sent it back and got a replacement from Eminence. After running these for a short time both cones creased and they make a frapping sound all the time so I replaced them with the 2 Delta 10's that these were supposed to be an upgrade for. I still run those Delta 10's and they work great but I was hoping for a little more power handling. These did NOT do it, probably because of the short XMax. I gave the features a 4 because of the threaded posts, cast fram and the big-assed magnets that will impress your friends.

Eminence Kappa Pro-10A 10" Cast Frame Driver

Could I use the Eminence Kappa Pro-10A 10" Drivers as a replacement for 10" speakers that I have in a Fender Rumble 500, it puts out 350 watts when you run 2 x10, with an extension cabinet it runs 500 watts. cab dimensions are 23" x 19" x 14".

Asked by: Lance M
Yes these will work in that cabinet.
