Just as the larger IP24 model, the mechanical construction of the IP17 is highly sophisticated: An extremely sturdy die-cast aluminum frame with a baffle made from resonance-absorbing MDF and rigid aluminum screw clamps provides a firm foundation for the advanced loudspeaker technology integrated within. The negative impact from unwanted resonances – so typical of 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 characteristic of Dynaudio is the shape of the cone which has been geometrically 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 high-grade components and three-way adjustable tweeter level ensures an ideal match with the listening environment.
Dynaudio Pre-Construction Brackets are optionally available to better facilitate new construction installations of Dynaudio IP17 and IP24 In-wall models, by working both as a template as well as a structural support for the installation.
