Dynaudio Esotar² Installation
The Dynaudio Esotar² systems 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 achieved will depend heavily on the above, and there are many points to consider:
In order for the sound to be tonally correct, dynamic and transparent, the drivers need to be mounted in an appropriate distance in relation to each other. For example, in a 2-way system the woofer and tweeter for each channel should be mounted in relative close proximity to one another, ideally as close to each other as physically possible. Please note that the stock location of the factory-fitted speakers in a car is not always ideal for realizing the full performance potential of an aftermarket system.
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. To conveniently facilitate flush mount installations, Dynaudio offers installation trim rings featuring cut-outs that perfectly fit the outline of the Esotar² driver frames.
Quality speaker cable is highly recommended. Again this may mean that the cabling that is part of the factory-fitted loudspeaker wiring of your car is a limiting factor in reaching the optimum performance potential of your Dynaudio Esotar² system.
