Dynaudio Automotive
The heart of Dynaudio’s incredible performance has always been the high quality drivers the company has developed
for its audiophile grade loudspeaker products, whether optimized for the Dynaudio home systems, professional or
automotive product ranges.
A primary objective in the development of the first Dynaudio automotive loudspeaker models was to combine the qualitative
performance attributes and off-axis response of the company’s award-winning home audio models and the excellent near field
response and refinement of the company’s dedicated professional studio monitor products into a range of products that would be
ideally suited to bring the advanced Dynaudio sound quality into the vehicle.
Designing a high-performance sound system for a car interior is far more complex and demanding as compared to developing
a quality home audio system. Besides meeting the most fundamental objective – sound quality – the system must deal with
other considerations such as extreme temperature variations, strong mechanical vibrations and greatly varying levels of ambient
noise. Dynaudio determined that the only way to properly address this market was to develop a range of drivers with parameters
specifically designed for and tailored to the car audio environment and its challenging acoustics.
Dynaudio’s long-term, multi-million dollar research and development funded, car-acoustics optimized automotive loudspeaker
models have always embodied the same advanced, no compromise approach that have rendered the company’s home and
professional product offerings as the absolute state-of-the-art.
The knowledge and experience gained under the constraints in developing the Dynaudio factory premium sound systems has
tremendously benefited the evolution of the company’s aftermarket sound systems, especially regarding tuning the crossovers
and optimizing the drivers’ parameters for the demands of a typical in-car installation. The available dedicated two-way or threeway adjustable crossover networks allow further fine-tuning and complete flexibility, allowing the drivers to realize their highest
performance capabilities. Meanwhile, to accommodate more highly customized multi-driver installations, all Dynaudio Automotive
drivers are available individually as separate components. All while delivering a level of sound quality performance that is instantly
recognizable as that of a true Dynaudio loudspeaker system.
The Dynaudio Automotive loudspeaker models are the finest car audio loudspeaker models available. Embodying the most
innovative and exclusive driver technologies, drawing from Dynaudio’s latest advances in loudspeaker design, the Dynaudio
Automotive products are more powerful, more refined, and more sophisticated than any other automotive loudspeaker offering,
and set a new performance benchmark.
Dynaudio Esotar 2
Dynaudio loudspeakers are a unique combination of innovative technology, state-of-the-art manufacturing, and
meticulous craftsmanship. The company has a history of producing exceptional loudspeaker products, assigning the
now legendary “Esotar” moniker on its finest, most technically advanced, highest performance transducers. Thus it was
only natural for Dynaudio to bestow its aftermarket automotive reference flagship loudspeaker range with the Esotar²
designation.
Dynaudio has built its reputation of producing some of the best drivers available with its Esotar Home Systems models, and has
now incorporated its most refined technological platform into a reference automotive speaker range worthy of the Esotar name.
All three completely new Esotar² automotive separate drivers feature the highest level of Dynaudio transducer technology and
deliver the best in-car sound quality ever offered from the company.
The highest grade materials, meticulous production quality, and precise fit and finish mated to Dynaudio’s most advanced
engineering results in a stunning sonic performance, allowing listeners to experience music like never before.
The new Esotar² automotive loudspeaker series represents the highest level of in-car music reproduction – not just for Dynaudio
but for the entire world of mobile audio.
The Dynaudio Esotar² system, properly installed, will undoubtedly set new performance benchmarks.
Soft Dome Tweeter Esotar² 110
Esotar² 110
Dynaudio has relied on soft dome tweeters for reproducing natural
high frequencies since the company’s origins, having perfected
the soft dome principle. The Esotar tweeter design requires an
extremely time-consuming labor intensive process where the fine
fabric diaphragm is shaped into a dome and then treated with a
special precision coating.
The best material for a tweeter is experience: Dynaudio has earned a
reputation as a manufacturer of the finest high frequency drivers available
with its venerable Esotar tweeters, and the company has incorporated its
most refined technologies into the new Esotar² 110 reference automotive
tweeter – which purely lives up to the Esotar designation by offering the
most accurate, nuanced and detailed high frequency performance in the
world. The Esotar² 110 represents the state-of-the-art in tweeter design
while never exhibiting a shrill or harsh sonic character typical of metal or
exotic material tweeter designs.

Esotar² 650
The Esotar² 650 is a 17 cm (6.5") diameter mid/bass driver that is built
on a rigid, die-cast solid aluminum frame and features Dynaudio’s
characteristic MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) diaphragm.
The MSP cone is a proprietary Dynaudio innovation, made in-house and
featuring precisely-shaped, geometrically-optimized form to enable the
smooth, optimized sound dispersion.
The voice coil diameter is exceptionally large at 75 mm, but by using
extremely light aluminum wire wound on a Kapton former, the coil remains extremely lightweight to enable ultra-fast movement. The large
coil enables the magnet to be positioned inside the coil, allowing for a
larger and more homogenous magnetic field to be utilized. In conjunc-
When used as part of a two-way speaker system, the midrange resolution
of the Esotar² 650 is simply beyond reproach; mid-bass remains taught
and accurate while always exhibiting perfect control at all volume levels.
The Esotar² 650 perfectly reflects the innovation and performance that
have established the Dynaudio Esotar drivers as the most advanced
high-performance transducers available.

The Dynaudio Esotar² drivers are reference-level loudspeaker components capable of revealing even the most subtle sonic details.
To achieve a superb level of sound quality, however, one must pay
attention to the quality of installation and ancillary equipment. The
ultimate level of performance realized will depend heavily on the
above, and there are many points to consider.
To achieve the highest level of sound quality, it is very important that the
loudspeakers are mounted to solid and well-damped baffles and that the
air space behind the woofers is sealed from the vehicle interior. To avoid
rattles and resonance, it is important that surfaces such as inner door
skins, surrounding metal and even exterior panels are reinforced and
damped with quality sound/vibration deadening materials.
The Esotar² driver frame features a unique bolt pattern with the mounting holes on the perimeter of the frame (high grade mounting bolts are
included). To conveniently facilitate flush-mount installations, Dynaudio
offers dedicated installation trim rings featuring CNC machined precision
cut-outs that perfectly fit the outline of the Esotar² driver frames.

Dynaudio Esotec
A primary objective in the development of the Dynaudio automotive loudspeaker models was to combine the qualitative
performance attributes and off-axis response of the company’s award-winning home audio models with the excellent
near field response of the company’s dedicated studio monitors into a range of mobile audio products that would be
ideally suited to bring the advanced Dynaudio sound quality into the vehicle.
Thus the same core technologies that have made Dynaudio one of the most renowned high end home audio loudspeaker brands,
or the official professional studio monitor of the demanding BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) have been implemented into a
full range of high performance loudspeakers designed and optimized for in-car installation: the Dynaudio Esotec series.
The Dynaudio Esotec Automotive loudspeaker series exudes all of the virtues in Dynaudio’s long-standing tradition of high performance loudspeaker designs: Highly-evolved Dynaudio technology, meticulously selected components, painstakingly matched
materials and carefully voiced sonics.
Every technical detail is developed and manufactured exclusively by Dynaudio in the company’s state-of-the-art production facility
in Skanderborg, Denmark. Dynaudio loudspeaker systems exhibit no sonic character other than that of the recording, and are
renowned for their ability to portray an accurate, uncolored reproduction of music. Music the way it was intended to be heard.
Dynaudio has become one of the world’s leading high-end audio companies by staying true to the company vision of natural, uncompromised sound quality. The company’s extreme focus and dedication as a specialist loudspeaker manufacturer is embodied
in the diverse range of high-performance loudspeaker products.
Soft Dome Tweeter Esotec MD 102
Esotec MD 102
The Dynaudio Esotec mobile loudspeakers follow in the longstanding
tradition of the company’s renowned home audio driver designs.
The new Esotec MD 102 tweeter is a soft-dome design as characteristic
of Dynaudio. The fine soft dome features a special coating to facilitate an
extended high frequency response free of distortion. The compact, shallow
depth MD 102 tweeter features a 28 mm (1.1 inch) diameter surface area that
is approximately 60% greater than that of conventional car audio tweeters.
The optimized dome geometry provides greatly improved dispersion characteristics, enabling the MD 102 tweeter to offer exceptional performance
even when mounted off of the listening axis. The dome coating serves to
eliminate any high frequency break-ups, while providing improved damping.
To eliminate high frequency distortions caused by reflections from inside the
structure, the MD 102 tweeter rear chamber is also sealed and acoustically
damped to eliminate high frequency distortion, which could be caused by
back-wave reflections, while ferrofluid cooling adds damping and additional
power handling.
The extremely smooth and incredibly detailed high frequency reproduction
characteristic of the Dynaudio sound is ensured by the all-new Esotec softdome tweeter, which features the latest Dynaudio technological innovations.
For the most authentic high-frequency reproduction – powerful Neodymium –
one of the most efficient but also most expensive magnetic materials for
loudspeaker construction is used in the tweeter magnet systems.
The soft-dome tweeter design topology allows unrestricted dynamics and a
linear frequency response with extremely low distortion. The MD 102 features an aluminum voice coil, another Dynaudio hallmark, which has been
updated and improved via an increased coil height with additional windings
to allow an increased range of linear excursion within the magnetic field.
Furthermore, as a result of the low moving mass of the new voice coil, a
higher maximum output level and increased dynamics are achieved, while
the frequency range has been expanded, thus allowing a better integration
with the upper midrange frequencies to deliver a more natural sound with
an open and detailed, and incredibly transparent reproduction of the high
frequencies.

Soft Dome Midrange Esotec MD 142
Esotec MD 142
Similar to the MD 102 tweeter in principle, the new Esotec MD 142 is a
75mm (3-inch) diameter soft dome midrange design intended for high
performance three- and four-way audio systems.
As typical of all Dynaudio tweeters and soft-dome midrange units, the MD 142
features a large diameter aluminum voice coil with a centered magnet housed
in a relatively compact and shallow enclosure. Suspended in ferrofluid for
controlled damping, an extremely light aluminium voice coil drives the dome.
Aluminium has proven to be an ideal material for Dynaudio’s oversized
voice coils due to its extremely low mass, which in turn allows a larger coil
diameter and more windings as compared to conventional designs. The heat
produced by the voice coil is dissipated to the magnet system with the help
of ferrofluid cooling liquid. The precisely optimized dome geometry and the
low mass of the internal moving parts ensure a very transparent and detailed
reproduction of all frequencies. In most dome driver designs, the surround of
the driver and the outer edge of the driver membrane are moving in opposite
phase and canceling each other’s output at various frequencies. Dynaudio
has undertaken extensive research into the shaping of these parts to ensure
that the long linear excursions essential to high output levels are maintained
without this type of interference.
The Esotec MD 142 is housed in a compact self-contained enclosure with
a vented pole piece and damped rear chamber. It includes an integrated protective grille, and requires no additional airspace for installation. It thus may
easily be integrated into a wide range of install applications and locations,
including kick-panel, in-dash, in-door or rear deck mount placement. In tandem with the incredibly powerful Neodymium magnet, the sound reproduced
by the MD 142 is smooth, detailed, dynamic and simply amazing.

Woofer Esotec MW 152
Esotec MW 152
The Dynaudio Esotec mid/woofers also utilize the same core technology
as the company’s home audio and professional studio loudspeaker
products, with materials and parameters fully optimized for the particular conditions typical of in-car installations. All Esotec models are
available in various sizes, all characterized by an ultra linear frequency
response and Dynaudio’s exemplary sonic performance.
The most compact of the new Esotec car series mid/woofers, the new MW 152
is a compact 15 cm (5.75 inch) diameter driver with a 75 mm (3 inch) diameter
voice coil. As is the case with the full range of Dynaudio woofers, the cone
diaphragm is composed of a proprietary MSP (magnesium silicate polymer)
material developed by Dynaudio – a low-distortion material characterized
by a lack of coloration that proves essential to the unique Dynaudio sound.
The MW 152 exhibits a smooth frequency response both on- and off-axis,
with incredibly low distortion. The MW 152 delivers excellent midrange reproduction and is the perfect choice for any small, high-performance two- or
three-way system.
The woofer motor assemblies of the Esotec mid/woofers are built into torsionally rigid die-cast aluminium baskets (a high-strength stamped steel basket
is utilized on the MW 162 GT and MW 182 model variants), which have
been optimized to eliminate air turbulence and resonance and the adverse
effects of such. The aerodynamically shaped ribs of the Dynaudio die cast
driver frames serve to eliminate virtually all reflections and tonal aberrations
created by the traditional driver frame, and ensure the highest degree of
mechanical performance at an extremely low weight.
The low suspension compliance of the MW 152 makes it perfectly suited for
smaller enclosures typical of most in-car installations, while also allowing it to
be utilized without a dedicated enclosure in free-air mounting applications.

Woofer Esotec MW 162
Esotec MW 162
The Esotec MW 162 mid/woofer is a medium sized 17 cm (6.5 inch)
diameter driver that combines a clear and detailed midrange with a
strong and powerful bass response.
Another characteristic typical of Dynaudio drivers and carried through in
the new Esotec mobile series woofers is the diffraction-optimized shape of
the MSP cone’s characteristic curvature, which further improves imaging so
that even at short listening distances as typical of most in-car installations a
realistic, true three-dimensional sound-stage can be enjoyed. Molding the
diaphragm and dust cap into a one-piece flat-membrane results in a controlled roll off and high dynamic range. In relation to the total cone surface
area, the 75 mm (3 inch) voice coil is exceptionally large in diameter, allowing
a most precise conversion of the amplifier’s signal to music. The result is
un-compromised, direct music enjoyment.
All of the Esotec MW (mid/woofer) model variants employ Dynaudio’s customary oversized aluminium voice coil, which feature an uncharacteristically
large diameter coil wound on a strong and temperature stable former to
drive the geometrically optimized rigid MSP cone diaphragm. The Esotec
mid/woofers have all been further upgraded with a brand-new suspension.
The new spider allows greater mechanical movement of the cone, increasing
excursion while allowing a higher maximum SPL and improved low bass
performance.
The use of Dynaudio’s large diameter aluminium voice coils increases thermal handling capabilities tremendously, allowing the drivers to operate within
an ideal temperature range, even at high continuous power levels and during
powerful music transients. Dynamic impulses are reproduced precisely and
without distortion, even at high volume levels, while impressive sound quality
and high power handling capability are achieved.

Esotec MW 162 GT
The new Esotec MW 162 GT is a smaller version of the MW 162 mid/
bass driver, also a 17 cm (6.5 inch) diameter design with a 75 mm
(3 inch) voice coil, housed in a slightly more compact yet rigid stamped
steel basket to better allow it to fit into a wider range of drop-in factory
automobile loudspeaker locations.
This is especially helpful in minimizing labor by eliminating otherwise
necessary vehicle modifications during installations where space is limited.
The Esotec mobile loudspeaker woofers all use glued and thermally bonded
styrene butadiene rubber surrounds, which ensure excellent control and
reliability, while providing added durability against the elements.
For more dynamic power delivery in the bass region, the 15, 17 and 20 cm
diameter Esotec mid/bass drivers employ Dynaudio’s traditional doublemagnet motor system while featuring new, upgraded high-density ultra-compressed Ferrite magnets. The new magnet systems provide an extremely
controlled and incredibly precise movement of the voice coil. The result is
improved dynamics and greater fidelity to the original music signal. Dramatic
musical passages are thus reproduced accurately and without compromise.
And with increased cone excursion, even the most powerful transients are
delivered without compression.

Woofer Esotec MW 172
Esotec MW 172
The new Esotec MW 172 is a 20 cm (8 inch) diameter mid/woofer
designed for high performance two-and three way systems.
The MW 172 will perform extremely well in a wide range of enclosures, either
sealed, vented, or free-air. The MW 172 exhibits a unique combination of
smooth frequency response, low distortion, and extremely powerful bass to
deliver an outstanding sonic performance in any high performance two- or
three-way system.
The MW 172 utilizes an oversized 75 mm (3 inch) diameter voice coil to drive
the MSP one-piece cone diaphragm. The new 15, 17 and 20 cm Esotec
car series woofers all utilize new ultra compressed dual ferrite magnets
positioned inside the coil to produce maximum utilization of the magnetic
energy. The powerful double magnet system utilizes a vented pole piece
for additional cooling. Positioning the magnet structure inside the voice coil
enables the use of a very large voice coil, which in turn produces increased
power and efficiency and yields a linear movement of the cone without cone
breakup. Phase response is smooth and uniform. The large diameter of the
voice coils provides optimum drive of the diaphragm and guarantees enough
headroom with regard to power rating, while assuring perfect control of even
the most minute membrane displacement. The use of a large diameter voice
coil also allows for the flat Dynaudio MSP cone membrane geometry, which
results in minimal phase lag at crossover to midrange driver.
The MW 172 is a perfectly balanced driver with excellent dispersion, a linear
frequency response and an extraordinary absence of resonance, rendering
it ideal for anchoring even a high quality two-way system even with its relatively large cone diameter.

Woofer Esotec MW 182
Esotec MW 182
The new Esotec MW 182 is a large 24 cm (10 inch) diameter mid/woofer
equipped with an extremely large, 100 mm (4 inch) diameter voice coil with
a dual centered magnet system driving the MSP cone to ensure the greatest
possible power handling. This impressive driver is ideally suited for woofer or
subwoofer applications in any high quality car audio system.
To achieve the lowest possible moving mass, as is the case with all Dynaudio
voice coil designs, the unique oversized voice coils are made of pure aluminum
while the voice coil wire is itself wound in Dynaudio’s proprietary technique.
Via an inimitable winding method, the lightweight aluminum coils are coated
with a special thermoplastic material. The coils are then processed in such
a way that the coil expands and contracts until the wires have reformed into
a solid mass of wire. By this method, an extremely durable and stable coil is
made, one not subject to warping and other problems commonly associated
with traditional loudspeaker voice coils. Concurrently, the density of the winding within the magnetic gap is increased, as is the efficiency of the driver.
The MW 182 is suited for a wide array of installation enclosures, both sealed
as well as vented. The long linear excursion of the ultra low distortion MSP
cone is perfectly complemented by the mechanical integrity of the rigid
steel basket. In conjunction with the extremely large voice coil, the MW 182
delivers not only high power handling but also a deep, tight and detailed
reproduction of bass free of any compression.

Dynaudio Sound Systems
Volkswagen
Volkswagen searched for a real audio specialist – and in 2002 they
turned to Dynaudio to develop a benchmark sound system for the next
generation Passat. Inspiring owners and car magazine test drivers
alike, the resulting high-end sound system redefined the level of sound
quality from a factory-fitted stereo system. This tremendous success
marked the beginning of a long-term collaboration between Dynaudio
and Volkswagen.
Working closely with the Volkswagen development team, Dynaudio is involved
in the design of the entire sound system from the very early stages.
Being involved so early meant that the Dynaudio engineers could optimize
the location, mounting, and housing of all components and precision-tailor
the amplifiers and associated circuitry in order to achieve the best possible
performance. The end result is a sound system that has been perfectly
integrated, both sonically and aesthetically – discreet Dynaudio logos are the
only visible clues.
The combination of ten Dynaudio loudspeaker drivers powered by stateof-theart digital amplifiers using digital sound processing (DSP) technology
provides a sound experience previously unheard of. This authentic sound
quality is achieved by individually designing and adapting the loudspeakers
and amplifiers for nearly all Volkswagen models.
Bugatti
An encounter of superlatives: for the first time, the performance of the
legendary Dynaudio hi-fi and home cinema loudspeakers is transferred
to a unique Super Sports car. When launched, the Bugatti Veyron set
new benchmarks in engineering and performance for a Super Sports
car, so when developing an audio system for the new Grand Sport only
the best would do.
The all-new Puccini Sound System includes dedicated Dynaudio loudspeaker
technology and a high-performance digital amplifier. With impressive
dynamics and extraordinary musicality this system sets a new sound quality
standard in the segment redefined by Bugatti.
In the Grand Sport Roadster the acoustic requirements where even higher
than in the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, resulting in an advanced design of the new
sound system that surpasses that of the Coupe by some margin.
The new Puccini Sound System is comprised of four Dynaudio loudspeaker
drive units, perfectly integrated into the interior and acoustically optimized
by the Dynaudio sound experts. Due to the compact interior dimensions and
only two seats, Dynaudio limited the number of speakers and concentrated
on the absolute attention to detail that is in keeping with a vehicle like the
Grand Sport. The use and selection of advanced materials and amplification
with digital signal processing is what makes this system exceptional.
