Evoke 25C is a dedicated centre speaker designed to integrate perfectly with any and all other speakers in the Evoke family – so you can bathe your ears in high-quality stereo just as effectively as you can shake the fillings out of your teeth with a summer blockbuster. The two-way design has one 28mm soft-dome tweeter and twin 14cm long-throw woofers.
Woofer Technology: Evoke 25C’s twin 14cm Esotec+ mid/bass drivers are made from MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer), a material we’ve been using for the woofer diaphragms since the dawn of Dynaudio. It provides exactly the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping to balance the needs of precise bass performance with clear, detailed midrange. Each speaker cone is crafted from a single piece of MSP. This makes them exactly the right amount of rigid – and means far less physical distortion when they’re playing. It also gives a super-solid physical connection to the glass-fibre voice-coil former on the back (it’s glued directly under the Balance Ribs you’ll see around the centre), which means more of the coil’s motion energy is transferred to the diaphragm. The 38mm voice-coils themselves are made from aluminium, making them extremely light. That means they can use more windings. More windings gives more control over the cone’s movement, which means more control over the sound – even at high volumes and high frequencies. That’s especially important in a centre speaker, which predominantly deals with speech – its midrange performance has to be absolutely top-notch.
Tweeter Technology: Up top is the brand-new 28mm Cerotar soft-dome tweeter. The Dynaudio engineers looked behind the curtain of the award-winning Special Forty and money-no-object Confidence tweeters and cherry-picked some key technologies to bring to Evoke. The headline-grabbing component is the Hexis – an ingenious inner dome that refines the airflow behind the playing surface to smooth-out its frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances.
Evoke 25C is available in four beautiful finishes: Black High Gloss, White High Gloss, Walnut Wood and Blonde Wood. The shiny versions really are just that: new lacquering techniques have resulted in a sumptuous, almost glass-like finish. The wood versions use a tactile, open natural veneer for either a warm, dark tone or a light apricot look. You might notice that you can’t see any mounting screws. Evoke has simple, clean trim rings that emphasise the cabinet’s finish as well as the moving parts of the drivers. The cabinet is tapered and rounded in a nod to the Contour and Confidence ranges, while the mounting screws are hidden behind stylish one-piece trim rings.
