C2 Platinum

Cutting-edge acoustic technology meets traditional Dynaudio heritage

The Confidence C2 serves up seamless balance, effortless control and the kind of sound that will keep you glued to your seat

The slimline C2 Platinum adapts our reflection-conquering DDC tech to a more compact floorstanding design. The drivers comprise two 17cm mid/bass drivers, matched to twin 28mm Esotar2 tweeters – all designed to deliver seamless integration, unparalleled staging and a real sense of Being There.

Like the C4 Platinum, the C2 features adjustable spikes hidden in the base for fine-tuning their position in your room, while concealed speaker-cable connectors in the back keep everything neat. After all, your eyes should be on the speakers – not the wiring.

What’s Dynaudio Directivity Control?
Much like motor-racing technology ends up in your family car, we’ve taken the expertise we’ve gained from decades of building professional monitors for major recording studios and applied it to home audio.

It’s all about compensating for floors and ceilings – which reflect the sound coming from your loudspeakers and introduce distortions and time delays. It’s those effects that colour the sound you hear – and while a splash of colour is lovely on the wall, you don’t want it in your music.

We utilised Dynaudio Directivity Control (DDC) in the Confidence Platinum C4 and C2 to minimise those unwanted distortions. The vertical symmetrical driver array and sophisticated crossover are designed to reduce the energy dispersed to floors and ceilings by up to 75%. That means more of it comes directly to you in your seat, and makes the speakers far less dependent on the room they’re in.

It isn’t just a driver arrangement, though: every part of the signal chain is optimised for the technology. Each tweeter complements each woofer in frequency response and phase relationship. Each crossover component is precisely selected for the job. And on the floor-standing speakers in the Confidence Platinum range, we make sure each set of drivers and crossover parts is precisely matched to the other – so they work in tandem.

Reviews

Bottom Line:   

The C2’s to me do everything right, to my ears. You can find them used for a much better deal. The workmanship is some of the best I have seen in the industry and their drivers are very detailed and not bright. This speaker sounds good with just about every type of music you can imagine, the C2 sounds good in a small room and even better in a bigger one, so no limitations on the size of the room except for very low ceilings since these stand tall. Matching a good Integrated Amp and or Amp and Preamp makes these speakers, sing even better.
