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.
Design, Construction and Application
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 re - production 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 torsion - ally 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.
