Dynaudio New Confidence 20 Standmount Speakers
Designed and engineered in Denmark
Brand-new Esotar3 tweeter
Next-gen DDC technology
- 250W IEC Power handling
We don’t think a speaker’s size should dictate how good it sounds… so we don’t let it
The compact Confidence 20 takes the performance, the passion and the power of the range’s larger speakers, and puts it on a stand.
We’ve spent years looking at how we could improve on the previous range of Confidence speakers. And, after almost countless hours in design labs, our state-of-the-art Jupiter measuring facility, modelling and simulation suites – and, of course, listening rooms – we’ve done it.
Like the rest of the range, the Confidence 20 features the all-new 28mm Esotar3 soft-dome tweeter, plus a new 18cm NeoTec MSP woofer and an innovative down-firing bass port. Its drivers feature cutting-edge developments in airflow technology (including a much larger rear chamber and optimised venting in the tweeter, plus the new resonance-stabilising Hexis inner dome); simulation-derived diaphragm thickness; super-powerful neodymium magnets; and the new Compex front baffle.
The new 28mm Esotar3 soft-dome tweeter takes over 40 years of Dynaudio expertise, plus plenty of new learnings from the award-winning Esotar Forty unit – and rolls it all into the finest tweeter we’ve ever created. A powerful neodymium magnet system, innovations in airflow routing, the new resonance-busting Hexis inner dome… it all combines to increase detail, clarity and sensitivity.
The new 18cm NeoTec MSP woofer also has neodymium under the hood, and uses glass-fibre in its voice-coil former for optimum stiffness. The voice-coil itself is aluminium (which provides the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping for tighter, more powerful and more controlled bass). And the entire woofer motor has been designed to harness airflow using an innovative new venting system that’s been machined directly into the magnet. (Something you can learn more about in our six-part podcast series on the new Confidence).
We’re guessing you want to know how it sounds… and the answer is, simply, “like your favourite artist”. Nothing more, nothing less.
