The Esotec MW 162 is a 17 cm (6.5 inches) diameter mid/woofer that combines a clear and detailed midrange with powerful bass response.
Dynaudio's diffraction-optimized MSP cone improves imaging so that even at short listening distances a realistic, three-dimensional sound-stage can be enjoyed. Molding the cone and dust cap into one-piece flat-membrane results in a controlled roll-off and high dynamics. The 75 mm (3 inches) voice-coil is exceptionally large and allows a most precise conversion of the amplifier's signal to music. The result is un-compromised, direct music enjoyment.
All of the Esotec MW model variants employ Dynaudio's oversized aluminum voice-coil, which features an uncharacteristically large diameter coil wound on a strong, temperature-stable former to drive the rigid MSP cone. The Esotec mid/woofers have all been upgraded with a new spider, which allows greater mechanical movement of the cone, increasing excursion while allowing a higher maximum SPL and improved low bass performance.
The use of Dynaudio's large diameter aluminum voice-coils increases thermal handling capabilities tremendously, allowing the drivers to operate within an ideal temperature range, even at high continuous power levels and during powerful music transients. Dynamic impulses are reproduced precisely and without distortion, while impressive sound quality and high power handling capability are achieved.
NOTE: All separate Esotec woofers are supplied without grilles.
