Dynaudio has endowed Contour 30 with two 18cm MSP drivers, as well as doubling up the rear ports. What makes their drivers so special? Variable thickness across the diaphragm, for one thing.
And aluminium voice-coils, for another. Dynaudio can make them extremely light – but also bigger than the old-style copper units you’ll find elsewhere. Lighter weight means larger diameters, which means they can use more windings, which means they have more control over the cone movement. And that translate to more control over the sound reproduction – especially at high frequencies and high volumes.
Dynaudio also included the ultra-pure, ultra-clear Esotar2 fabric soft-dome tweeter.
And because they have irrepressible tinkerers, they’ve given the inside a makeover, too. As with the Contour 20 and the Contour 60, the Contour 30 has new baskets to hold the drivers themselves, as well as a new crossover and new wiring. Dynaudio listened to their old Contours for months and decided they wanted the crossover to serve up even better bass. So, now you can go louder and lower.
