The Confidence C4 Platinum is a no-compromise world-class loudspeaker design. The C4 captivates with unparalleled sound quality, from incredibly deep bass to clear, smooth, detailed highs, even in larger rooms.
New materials, techniques and the application of new acoustic theories means ‘great’ just got greater
They stand 1.73m tall. They have two 28m Esotar2 tweeters with our own precision coating. They use two 15cm midrange drivers and two 20cm woofers – all made from our very own Magnesium Silicate Polymer material. And their ultra-lightweight aluminium voice-coils accompany non-magnetic Kapton formers, high-quality internal wiring and a sophisticated first-order crossover.
The C4s produce utterly captivating sound – from incredibly deep, controlled bass to clear, smooth, detailed highs.
What’s Dynaudio Directivity Control?
Much like motor-racing technology ends up in your family car, we’ve taken the expertise we’ve gained from decades of building professional monitors for major recording studios and applied it to home audio.
It’s all about compensating for floors and ceilings – which reflect the sound coming from your loudspeakers and introduce distortions and time delays. It’s those effects that colour the sound you hear – and while a splash of colour is lovely on the wall, you don’t want it in your music.
We utilised Dynaudio Directivity Control (DDC) in the Confidence Platinum C4 and C2 to minimise those unwanted distortions. The vertical symmetrical driver array and sophisticated crossover are designed to reduce the energy dispersed to floors and ceilings by up to 75%. That means more of it comes directly to you in your seat, and makes the speakers far less dependent on the room they’re in.
It isn’t just a driver arrangement, though: every part of the signal chain is optimised for the technology. Each tweeter complements each woofer in frequency response and phase relationship. Each crossover component is precisely selected for the job. And on the floorstanding speakers in the Confidence Platinum range, we make sure each set of drivers and crossover parts is precisely matched to the other – so they work in tandem.
The construction mates an especially slim cabinet with an innovative baffle design: The distinctive CNC-machined baffle minimizes resonance due to its multi-layer construction, while it extends beyond the cabinet to incorporate larger woofers than the slim cabinet would otherwise allow. The asymmetrically shaped baffle with gently rounded edges minimizes sound break-up and therefore yields a homogenous sound radiation from the tweeters and midrange drivers.
The two Esotar2 tweeters are seamlessly mounted into a solid, glass-blasted aluminium plate. This suppresses even the most minute movements from the tweeters, which otherwise would distort phase and sound dispersion in the higher frequencies. These two tweeters, together with the symmetrical midrange drive units and specific distances to each other, are part of the DDC technology. The two woofers are placed in the upper and lower section of the baffle, yielding a more even and balanced in-room bass response compared to a single woofer. The result is a fascinating imaging and staging over the whole frequency spectrum.
The Confidence C4 Platinum delivers a new sound experience: Reproducing the highest levels of transparency and detail, combined with an almost tangible depth.
