Compact size. Masterful performance

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, modeling and simulation suites – and, of course, listening rooms – we’ve done it.

 

Cutting-edge development

Like the rest of the range, the Confidence 20 features the 28mm Esotar3 soft-dome tweeter, plus an improved 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 resonance-stabilising Hexis inner dome); simulation-derived diaphragm thickness; super-powerful neodymium magnets; and the Compex front baffle.

The 28mm Esotar3 soft-dome tweeter takes over 40 years of Dynaudio expertise, plus plenty of 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 resonance-busting Hexis inner dome… it all combines to increase detail, clarity and sensitivity.

The 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 lets us use the ideal weight (or lightness, depending on your point of view) for powerful and controlled bass as well as refined midrange. And the entire woofer motor has been designed to harness airflow using an innovative venting system that’s been machined directly into the magnet. (Something you can learn more about in our six-part podcast series on the Confidence).

We’re guessing you want to know how it sounds… and the answer is, simply, “like your favourite artist”. Nothing more, nothing less.


Features


Designed and engineered in Denmark

We put Confidence through intensive –and exhaustive –testing in the Jupiter measuring facility at Dynaudio Labs. Hundreds of hours of analysis and listening have resulted in the best speaker we’ve ever created.


Esotar3 tweeter

The legend continues. The Esotar3 is optimised for detail, finesse and performance. It includes the ingenious Hexis resonance-defeating inner dome, plus innovations in materials, airflow and more.
