Inside Dynaudio’s debut Custom Install range26 June 2017
Loudspeaker specialist Dynaudio has introduced a new range of installation loudspeakers in the form of its new Studio Series.
The in-wall and in-ceiling Studio Series is the first line to be launched from the company’s new Custom Install architectural loudspeaker range and has been designed to install quickly and easily, whilst also providing integrators the flexibility to accommodate the most challenging listening environments.
“The new Custom Install range harnesses the core technology, expertise, and fanatical attention to detail that’s made our hi-fi range so celebrated over the past 40 years,” said Andrew Werdean, CEO, Americas for Dynaudio. “The Studio Series maintains the same quality standards of our home and professional audio products, ensuring that homeowners will enjoy an authentic and immersive listening experience.”
The Studio Series is comprised of two round in-ceiling models, the S4-C65 and S4-C80, and two rectangular in-wall models, the S4-W65 and S4-W80. Both the in-ceiling and in-wall models can either be pre-installed or retrofitted into existing cavities for remodels. The speakers’ low-profile slim bezels and paintable grilles can be matched to their surroundings – a round grille is supplied as standard with the in-ceiling models, but square grilles are also available.
Meanwhile, the Studio Series S4-C65, S4-C80, S4-W65, and S4-W80 have been designed with dimensions similar to those of other architectural loudspeakers, enabling integrators to upgrade audio system installations and incorporate higher-performance loudspeakers into existing cutouts.
All models in the series feature a patent-pending two-piece tool-less mounting system. The pre-installation frame mounts into the speaker cut-out via auto-locking clamps, and the speaker unit housing the baffle, drivers, and crossover mounts securely within the frame via a locking drop-stop latch system.
The in-ceiling models feature an 18°-angled, fully rotatable 6.5” (S4-C65) or 8” (S4-C80) mid/bass driver mated to a 1” tweeter with three-position adjustable tilt and a high-frequency level (+/- 3dB) switch. Should the room arrangement change, installed in-ceiling speakers can be adjusted without any repositioning of the mounting frame.
