Dynaudio will be showcasing a salvo of new products at CEDIA Expo booth #943. The company is taking the wraps off its Performance range, a brand-new, slimline product family comprising high-end in-wall and in-ceiling custom-installation speakers, plus a special fire-resistant back-box. Dynaudio also announced two new outdoor loudspeaker models, its first-ever offerings in this category.
Dynaudio Performance Series In-Wall and In-Ceiling Speakers
The new Performance range marks the entry point to the Dynaudio Custom Installation product lineup. It was designed to deliver high-quality sound in distributed audio, media room, and other architectural audio applications.
For installers, specifying Dynaudio Performance speakers means not having to choose between deep or shallow versions of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers: The new lineup keeps things simple with just one relatively shallow depth.
The rectangular in-wall speakers are a one-piece design that slots into place and is secured by tightening the special doglegs that grip the drywall. The round in-ceiling speakers make installation even simpler with no tools to install; users can just fit the frame and twist the speaker module to lock it into place.
The Dynaudio Performance Series is comprised of:
- P4-W65 in-wall speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 6.5-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $399 each
- P4-W80 in-wall speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 8-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $499 each
- P4-C65 in-ceiling speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 6.5-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $399 each
- P4-DVC65 in-ceiling speaker (two 28mm soft-dome tweeters, 6.5-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $449 each
- P4-C80 in-ceiling speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 8-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $449 each
- P4-LCR50 in-wall LCR speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, two 5-inch woofers), MSRP $599 each
There is also an accompanying shallow-depth, fire-proof metal back box packed with Morgan Superwool to provide one hour of protection. The box mounts onto standard 16-inch-on-center studs.
Dynaudio Custom Outdoor Speakers
Dynaudio has also announced two new outdoor speakers: the OW-6, with a 28mm soft-dome tweeter and a 6.5-inch woofer; and the OW-8, with a 28mm tweeter and an 8-inch woofer. They can be connected to a regular amplifier as a pair of passive 8-ohm speakers or daisy-chained on a single 70 V/100 V system by using the selector on the rear. This is an ideal feature for outdoor spaces or commercial applications where multiple speakers are needed to create a consistent sound level across a larger area.
The OW-6 and OW-8 are both IP65-rated, enabling them to withstand everything but a high-pressure jet-washer, and they can operate in temperatures from –27.4 degrees F to 104 degrees F (–33 degrees C to 40 degrees C). Each OW-6 is available for $499, and the OW-8 is $649. Both models are offered in black or white and include articulating wall-mount brackets.
