Danish loudspeaker specialist Dynaudio developed the Excite X14A, an active compact loudspeaker. Integrating DYNAUSIO_excite_loudspeakerspowerful digital amplifiers, proprietary Dynaudio woofers and tweeters, digital sound processing and featuring user-adjustable settings to finely tune the sound according to room acoustics or listening preferences, the Excite X14A is said to be “the ideal active loudspeaker speaker for smart, modern audio systems. All one needs is to connect a volume- controlled audio source”.

Based on Dynaudio’s experience in crafting active studio monitors and compact home hi-fi loudspeakers, the Excite X14A drive units are tailored to match the amplifier electronics, and the amplifier optimized to match the drivers.. The Excite X14A utilizes a bi-amped configuration: One 50 watt digital amplifier powers the bass/midrange driver while a second 50 watt digital amplifier powers the tweeter. An Excite X14A two-channel setup yields 2 x 100 watt stereo system.

The Excite X14A features three equalizer switches that allow one to fine-tune the sonic performance even further, for example when placing the speaker near a wall, corner, or free standing. The bass, midrange and treble can all be individually adjusted in three levels. The high-pass filter (60 or 80 Hz) allows one to optionally combine the Excite X14A with a subwoofer. With the high pass filter engaged, lower bass frequencies will be filtered out to be covered by a dedicated sub such as the Dynaudio Sub 250 II.

The rear panel of the Excite X14A features two analogue inputs to choose from, one RCA and one XLR. The input sensitivity can be individually adjusted in three levels. The Excite X14A can be set to either switch-on from standby after sensing a music signal (Auto On, Auto Off), or may be left permanently switched-on.

The Excite X14A is available in four different cabinet finishes: Satin White, Satin Black, Rosewood and Walnut. Like all Dynaudio speakers, the Excite X14A is built in-house, at the company headquarters in Skanderborg, Denmark.
