The IP 17 is the ideal combination of superb performance matched with compact dimensions. Just as the larger model IP 24 the mechanical construction is unusually highly sophisticated: An extremely sturdy die-cast aluminum frame with a baffle made from resonance-absorbing MDF and rigid aluminum screw clamps, provide a firm foundation for the integrated loudspeaker technology. The negative impact from unwanted resonances -so typical for the more common light-weight plastic assemblies- is thus effectively eliminated.
The cone material for the IP 17 woofer is made from Magnesium Silicate Polymer (MSP). Just as typical for Dynaudio is the shape of the cone which has been optimized for perfect sound dispersion in a room.
In combination with the unusually large but extremely light-weight aluminum voice-coil and a very powerful magnet system, the speaker will follow the music signal with great precision. The specially coated soft-dome tweeter remains free of distortion or edginess at even very high frequencies. The sophisticated crossover with its three-way adjustable tweeter level ensures an ideal match with the listening environment.
