  • Dynaudio Confidence C2?

    I listened to these over the weekend - sounded superb! Would it be possible to do something with a two tweeter approach like the C2? Does it make sense? Advantages / implications? (if this has been discussed in another thread a while ago - apologies...)

    Re: Dynaudio Confidence C2?

    I'd love to see the crossover of those to see how they're using the two tweeters. I'd have to guess that they're rolling off one tweeter lower than the other in order to prevent comb filtering issues, but to have double the drivers at the lower end of the tweeter's range in order to minimize distortion.

    From a practical standpoint I think it's needless complication, but when you charge that kind of money for a product, you've got to do something to differentiate it from competitors.

      Yea - I am assuming some kind of roll off and wondering about the reasoning behind the two tweeter approach.

        Yes- one tweeter is bandpassed in the Confidence design.

              How did you know that? Just curious.

              maybe it's just me but I think that Confidence series has some uhhgly baffles.

                Agreed......I don't expect many DIYers to imitate that design!:p

                      I've tried using dual tweeters, It's a bunch of work to get right. I think more work than the gain is worth (if any).

                        Well, how often do you see other speaker companies do it? Dynaudio is doing it to limit the vertical dispersion of the tweeter in their lower operating range. You just have to ask if this is worth the price of another tweeter. Most of us would say no. Still, the choice is yours.

                          They were discussed a few(;)) years back in greater detail, and that is a tidbit I picked up from the discussion.

                          Oh- and I agree about the aesthetics.
                          Jeff's sentiment on being worthwhile is my opinion as well.

                              Dynaudio spends way too much time focusing on the range above 3KHz. Dual tweets is a gimmick as much as anything else, something to separate them from the crowd.

                              There's probably a reason other companies don't do that too often, though RBH seems to be fond of that procedure, to add sensitivity more than anything else.
