That’s why we created the Contour 25C center-channel. Mix and match it with a combination of Contour 20s, 30s and 60s for a seamlessly integrated multichannel system – a system on which you know you’ll be able to enjoy stereo music as much as you will a teeth-rattling blockbuster.
Why? Because it is essentially a Contour 30 turned on its side, with the tweeter moved to the middle. The super-detailed Esotar2 soft-dome unit is flanked by a pair of 18cm MSP drivers – all of which use the same high-end lightweight aluminium voice-coils and magnetic ferrofluid technology as the rest of the Contour range.
Our loudspeakers are used in music and movie production studios all over the world – so we know how crucial it is to reproduce multichannel sound to its fullest potential. And if you’re investing time in watching a movie or TV-show, you want that experience to be as clear, dynamic, assured, and powerful as it can be. Most of the speech information comes out of the center-channel, which is why the Contour 25C’s combination of legendary materials and balanced, neutral sound is so ideal.
That’s why the Contour 25C doesn’t compromise. All the knowledge, care and enthusiasm that goes into our upright speakers is here, too. The finish is furniture-grade; the materials top-quality. If you want a companion or an upgrade for your existing Dynaudio system, this is it.
Making a Contour without its signature baffle would be all-near impossible. But, there’s always room for improvement. The new baffle is made from a solid piece of aluminium and set into the cabinet. Its chamfer is included in the driver’s basket – which not only looks great, but also reduces unwanted high-frequency diffraction effects for clearer treble, and provides a solid foundation for the drivers to do their work. A solid foundation means improved high-volume performance at low frequencies.
And although we might have changed the cabinet’s shape, the new design tips a respectful nod to older Contours. Look at it from the top; you’ll see the old baffle design in its shape. But, it isn’t just for show – the new shape marries those aesthetics with cutting-edge acoustic physics. Its multilayered construction is extremely well-damped, which means the Contour’s sound goes exactly where it’s supposed to: forwards.
We’ve redesigned the internal wiring and crossover, too You won’t see what we’ve done, but you’ll hear the effect: amazingly clear sound, even off to the sides of the speaker.
