In case you are set on having truly serious sound in your living/media room and are in doubt which way to go, the flagship C4 loudspeakers in the Confidence series at Dynaudio could be a very inspired option. Larger and more heavily-loaded than the C2, the Dynaudio Confidence C4 is nothing you see every day: packing extreme acoustic quality and sporting a really dramatic look, this loudspeaker will make your friends and visitors envy you.
The Dynaudio Confidence C4 is truly graceful in its tall, towering cabinet; residing on a solid baseplate rendering the whole structure more stable, it comprises wood panels as thick as 38mm for severely cutting off any resonance and vibration, while the heavy internal bracing terminates most of the stationary waves developing when this loudspeaker is driven hard. The included adjustable feet with internal spikes ensure maximal decoupling from the floor for a better sonic response.
The driver complement is impressive as well, as we're dealing with a vented 3-way, 6-driver array running with twin tweeters, mids and woofers. So to speak, the Dynaudio Confidence C4 is a large-scale d'Appolito-in-d'Appolito array, loaded on a massive metal frontplate embedded in the front baffle of the floorstander.
The bass/midrange woofers sport 200mm single-piece molded PP cones with 75mm voice coils. They are moved by super-strong neodymium magnet rings and have pure aluminum wiring on Kapton formers. Sporting the same technology but in a smaller size, the dual midrange drivers have 150mm cones/38mm voice coils and have been tuned for sparkling, pristine and well-definite mids, ensuring bright vocals in music and movie dialogs as well.
The tweeters themselves run on the same pure aluminum wiring and oversized magnet rings; they are ferrofluid-cooled and have 28mm soft domes, loaded in very sturdy 10mm aluminum-alloy fronts for better heat dissipation; these HF units are rear-chambered, ventilated and damped.
The overall response of the Dynaudio Confidence C4 runs from a rumbling 27Hz bottom-end to a 25kHz superior cutoff point, perfect for high-def audio tracks reproduction as well. The driver complement is 90dB-sensitive and can handle as much as a massive 400W in 4 Ohms. These amazing loudspeakers are priced around $16,000 a pair.
