The OW-6 and OW-8 are rated IP65 and can operate in temperatures from –33°C to 40°C
Dynaudio has announced its first outdoor speaker models: 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. For applications where multiple speakers are needed to create a consistent sound level across a larger area, the speakers can be connected to a regular amplifier as a pair of passive 8Ω speakers or daisy-chained on a single 70V/100V system by using the selector on the rear. They are both rated IP65 and can reportedly operate in temperatures from –33°C to 40°C.
The manufacturer has also added two new models to the Core reference series. Operating within a frequency range of 44Hz to 27kHz (±3dB), the Core 47 is a compact monitor housing a 7-inch woofer, a dedicated 4-inch midrange driver and 28mm Esotar Pro tweeter. While the LF and MF sections are powered by dual Pascal Class-D 500W amplifiers, the tweeter is served by a dedicated 150W module. The Core Sub is a powered subwoofer integrating four 9-inch long-throw woofers with dual 500W of Pascal Class-D amplifiers.
Filling the gap between the Core 7 and Core 59 models, the dedicated midrange driver of the Core 47 provides detailed reproduction in the critical vocal frequency range. Hand made in Denmark, both the Core 47 and Core Sub are equipped with digital inputs (AES3) that support signals up to 24-bit/192kHz together with an internal DSP for operation at similar levels when using analogue inputs. Designed to be positioned horizontally or vertically, the Core monitors come with four indentations on each side and a set of special pads to fit them. An optional bracket extends installation options for the 15.1kg three-way design.
Finally, Dynaudio has unveiled new additions to its Custom Installation lineup. The Performance range features rectangular in-wall speakers that have a shallow depth and are secured by tightening the special doglegs that grip the drywall. The round in-ceiling models can be fitted into the frame and twisted to lock into place. The series comprises the P4-W65 in-wall speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 6.5-inch MSP woofer); P4-W80 in-wall speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 8-inch MSP woofer); P4-C65 in-ceiling speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 6.5-inch MSP woofer); P4-DVC65 in-ceiling speaker (two 28mm soft-dome tweeters, 6.5-inch MSP woofer); P4-C80 in-ceiling speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 8-inch MSP woofer); and P4-LCR50 in-wall L-C-R speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, two 5-inch woofers).
