Bigger rooms need bigger sound to fill them, and the Dynaudio Custom S4-C80 in-ceiling speaker certainly won’t leave larger spaces wanting. While it shares lots of what’s great about the smaller S4-C65 in its design – including its ability to rotate through 360 degrees to suit your room – it boasts a larger 20cm mid/bass driver for a more powerful sound that’ll go deeper and louder when it really counts.
The higher frequencies are handled by the same excellent 28mm soft-dome tweeter as its smaller sibling too, which can also be pivoted to tailor the sound perfectly to your room.
The bigger size of this speaker will require a little more room in your ceiling, but don’t worry. With a choice of round or square paintable grilles, the S4-C80 can stand out or blend in as much as you want it to.
Dynaudio has a long history of creating high-end speakers for home, car, and pro audio systems. They also apply their design expertise to custom-install speakers as well. The S4-C80 in-ceiling speaker is part of their Architectural Studio Series, and it offers terrific sound while disappearing into your room.
The S4-C80's uses a 1-1/8" soft dome tweeter and Dynaudio's 8" MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) woofer for natural, full-range sound. These drivers are angled at 18° so that sound is directed toward your listening position.
You can also rotate this speaker 360° in its frame. If you rearrange your furniture down the road, you can easily change the direction your speaker fires without having to reinstall it elsewhere in the room.
The S4-C80 is a great choice for a high-end in-ceiling stereo system. Or use this speaker as a left, right, or center channel as part of a Dynaudio home theater system. You'll enjoy rich, full-bodied sound with all of your favorite entertainment.
