Dynaudio Emit M25C
A dedicated centre channel for multi-channel systems
It could be argued that the centre channel is the most important part of any surround-sound system. It’s where the lion’s share of dialoguecomes from in a movie, and it’s where the focal point of the music oftencomes from in a multi-channel mix.
It’s essentially an Emit 30, turned on its side, with the mid/bass drivers placed either other side of the tweeter. It means you get total consistency between the centre speaker and the two flanking it (whether those are Emit 10s, 20s, 30s or even 50s), along with any others you place around your listening position.
Classic Dynaudio Design
The Emit 25C uses the same 14cm MSP woofers as Emit 10 and Emit 30, just like all Dynaudio speakers have used for decades. MSP stands for Magnesium Silicate Polymer. endary speakers (including Confidence, Contour, Heritage Special and many more). MSP provides exactly the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping to reproduce your material with all the detail the artist wants you to hear.
Newly designed surrounds extend their throw, their frequency response and their low-frequency dynamics. This is all while maintaining stellar midrange performance.
The woofer’s diaphragm is 0.4mm thin, which provides exactly the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping to ensure optimum performance. It’s made of one piece (the dust-cap is part of the playing surface), and is bonded directly to the rigid glass-fibre voice-coil directly under the Balance Ribs you’ll see around the centre dome. That means the whole unit moves as one, in a predictable (and carefully tuned) way, for a performance that strikes the ideal balance between bass and midrange.
The voice-coils themselves are made from lightweight aluminiumwire, clad in a thin layer of copper. Aluminium is used here on the two-layer glass-fibre former because its weight doesn’t impede the driver’s movement. The copper layer means it can take more advantage of the magnetic energy generated by the dual-stacked ferrite magnet system. More control over the cone’s movement, which means more control over the sound. This applies even at high volumes and high frequencies.
Cerotar: a brand-new tweeter
Up top is the brand-new 28mm Cerotar soft-dome tweeter. Dynaudio’s engineers looked behind the curtain of the award-winning Special Forty and money-no-object Confidence tweeters and cherry-picked some key technologies to bring to Evoke. The headline-grabbing component is the Hexis – an ingenious inner dome that refines the airflow behind the playing surface to smooth-out its frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances.
Linking the drivers together is a high-grade second-order crossover that uses the Confidence’s design with different components.
