Dynaudio philosophy

Our philosophy is simple. Whether listening classical or acoustic music, the latest electro beats or the powerful live recording from a stadium concert, we want to turn your car into a concert hall, and create a truly magical experience. Making that happen is anything but simple, though.

To create pure sound systems in cars, we know we have to break new ground. It is our ambition to set new benchmarks. And we think we did: by achieving a pure sound that is detailed, warm and natural regardless of the volume level. It is like everything else we do: truly High End.

Why is sound important?

Well, for many of us, our car is a sanctuary. Whether you’re on your favourite country road or being stuck in traffic, setting out on a journey or on the daily drive to work, a Dynaudio sound system is able to transform your drive into an experience for the senses. When you step out of your car, we want you to feel more relaxed than when you got into it. It’s the sound that drives you, as we like to call it.

Engineering pure sound

Developing pure sound in a car is probably one of the most difficult tasks for a sound engineer. The seats absorb sound waves, while hard surfaces like glass reflect them. Wind, tyres and engine noise create constantly changing sound levels and vibrations. The loudspeaker chassis are exposed to extreme conditions: temperatures between -30 and +60, direct sunlight and humidity. In addition, the seating position of the driver and passengers, and thus the configuration of the loudspeakers, is not dictated by the ideal acoustics, but by the space available. In short: a real challenge - so it's a good thing that we love challenges.

Timing it right

So how do we solve such a challenge? The solution is to use Digital Signal Processing (DSP). We carefully map how every curve and every surface of the interior reflects sound, and then delay the signal to each speaker with the help of computer processing power, to match the distance to their position. So that you will experience is the same pure sound, as if we placed you in the perfect position in front of two of our speakers in your living room. This tricks our brain to think that the music is placed in front of us.

Made in Denmark

We take great pride in our products. It is what makes Dynaudio unique. That’s why the Dynaudio loudspeaker drivers are designed, engineered and manufactured at our factory in Skanderborg in Denmark. We produce every part ourselves, with the use of state-of-the art industrial robots. Only by controlling the entire manufacturing process are we able to achieve the quality we want.

High-tech measuring centre for the perfect sound

On the way to the perfect loudspeaker and the perfect system we are testing, testing, testing. We do this in our huge Jupiter measuring facility in the Dynaudio Labs, one of the most innovative sound test centres in Europe, which enables very precise measurements. The hollow cube with an edge length of 13 metres is equipped with technologies that allow us to measure even the smallest details. One of the things that make this possible is a robot equipped with 31 microphones that can take measurements over 360 degrees - because no effort is too high for us to achieve the ideal sound.
