Welcome to the custom install Performance Series and thank you for choosing a Dynaudio Custom Install product.
The Performance Series comprises the P4-C65, P4-DVC65 and P4-C80 in-ceiling speakers and the P4-W65, P4-W80 and P4-LCR50 in-wall speakers.
Each is designed to offer high quality audio performance while at the same time incorporating features and facilities designed to ease installation.
This manual describes the installation of Performance Series speakers within drywall/plasterboard walls and ceilings. It begins by listing the contents of the Performance Series cartons and continues with sections that provide information common to in-ceiling and in-wall speakers. Later sections in the manual provide information specific to installing in-ceiling or in-wall speakers.
If this is your first time working with Dynaudio Performance Series custom install speakers, or if you have not done so for a while, we recommend that you read the appropriate sections of this manual before you begin.
The Performance Series is designed to provide very high quality audio in custom installations where speakers are required to be fitted flush in walls and ceilings. The Performance Series not only benefits from four decades of Dynaudio speaker expertise but has been designed from first principles to offer a new approach to custom speaker installation and performance.
Performance Series speakers are uniquely simple to install. Once a ceiling or wall cut-out is created, few tools are required and installation can be completed by one person without assistance. Every element of the Performance Series installation procedure, from unpacking the speakers to painting and fitting the magnetic grilles is simplified and streamlined by design.
Performance Series speakers employ numerous Dynaudio speaker technologies, borrowed from the company’s recording studio monitors and high-end hi-fi speakers, to bring genuinely high performance audio to custom installations: unique bass/mid drivers with large diameter aluminum voice coils and finite element optimized high-power, low-distortion magnet systems, proprietary MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) diaphragms, and precision coated soft dome tweeters with powerful neodymium magnet systems are just a few examples among many.
The P4-DVC65 in-ceiling speaker incorporates twin tweeters and a dual voice-coil bass/mid driver that enable it to reproduce both channels of stereo program material.
Performance Series in-ceiling speakers comprise a Speaker Module and Installation Frame. The Installation Frame is inserted into the ceiling cut-out and securely fixed in place using auto-locking clamps. The Speaker Module is then connected to the speaker cables before being inserted into the Installation Frame to be held in place by a turn to latch system. The grille is then fitted, securely attached by magnets integrated within the Installation Frame.
Performance Series in-wall speakers comprise an integrated speaker and installation frame. The integrated unit is connected to the speaker cables before being inserted into the wall aperture where it is secured by clamps tightened through turning cross-head screws located in the unit's front bezel. The grille is then fitted, securely attached by magnets integrated within the speaker bezel.
The carton contents for all Performance Series in-ceiling and in-wall speakers are essentially the same. Items only differ in terms of ceiling/wall format and dimension. Within each carton can be found:
1 x Speaker Unit
1 x Grille
1 x Cut-out Template
1 x Document pack
