Country: USA Year : The Dahlquist DQ loudspeaker no longer manufactured and only available used on ebay and other such locations all but revolutionized the high-fidelity industry, when it was first introduced at a Hi-Fi Show in New York in ….. Diffusore da pavimento a 5 vie con quattro altoparlanti dinamici e un supertweeter piezoelettrico. In order to minimize undesirable effects from diffraction, each driver has been separately mounted on the smallest possible baffle, whose dimensions were determined by the frequency range of the passband.

It's operation is based on patented acoustical techniques which provide very accurate reproduction of source material. In order to minimize undesirable effects from diffraction, each driver has been separately mounted on the smallest possible baffle, whose dimensions were determined by the frequency range of the passband.
This is directly opposed to the standard practice of mounting the drivers on one relatively large baffle. The mounting method used in the Phased Array also makes it possible to incorporate time-delay correction through relative front-to-back positioning of each element.

Curious, I ask; what's in the basement? Funny boxes with a sloped front. I knew exactly what speakers he saw. He said I could have them, there was something wrong with them. This I also knew bad foam surrounds After a few or more years of reminding, I finally got them home. They were year-old dusty, but all there except no stands.
I swapped in new woofers and off to the races. Very impressive sound, clear and bright without harshness, presence without being too forward, all-around beautiful presentation. A little laugh the older folks will appreciate: It has a super tweeter in the form of a piezoelectric horn, which I thought wasn't working I am moving and will have to find a new home for them in the next year or two, if you know someone who might appreciate them.

My great uncle bought a pair in the early 80's, but for the past 20 years they'd been sitting untouched in my grandparents' basement along with a Luxman L amp my great uncle had bought to power them.
They told me it was mine if I lugged the system out. I got it all out, and took it home. All I had to do was refoam the woofers and resolder a couple loose connections to the supertweeter on one of the speakers and they were ready! I put Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti on and was immediately blown away by the sound these speakers produce. The soundstage with these is phenomenal. While many great speakers give a sense of listening to a wall of sound, these make you feel as if you're immersed in it.
There's a sense of depth, a feeling that you can reach into the sound and pick individual elements apart. Sounds are not presented in a somewhat linear field like many speakers, but are placed all over, at different points.
Listen to Eclipse from Pink Floyd and you can pick out the chorus behind the lead vocals with startling clarity. I have never heard anything like this before. Some important notes about these speakers; firstly, the biggest factor in their sound is placement. I tried a few different places and eventually found that the best placement for these is significantly further out from the wall and a little closer to each other than other speakers. Try for at least a couple feet distance from any walls, and leave feet in between the speakers.
This will help the speakers work their expansive magic. Secondly, these are not bass-heavy speakers. You won't get wall-shaking sound out of these, and if that's what you are looking for, these aren't the speakers for you. These speakers reproduce sound with shocking clarity and sharp, accurate detail.
With that being said, a small sub does help to fill out the bottom end and give the speaker's woofers a little bit of help. The difference is definitely noticeable; I've currently got a Polk PSW10 as the sub in the setup but am looking to upgrade to something more detailed and clear. You won't need a sub much bigger than that 10 inches , just be sure to find one that is as clear and punchy as your budget allows.
It's almost a crime to muddy up the beautiful sound these speakers put out! These are my favorite speakers by a country mile. There's several for sale on eBay, and I would absolutely check them out and consider buying them. Keep in mind what I noted above and you will be just as floored and hooked on the sound as I am! Reviewed Jan 12th, by gcomp. I heard these back in the 70's. They were the best speakers I had ever listened to, but I was in college and couldn't afford them.
I picked up a mirrored pair 5 years ago. They had the optional DQ-1W bass unit and passive crossover. I refoamed the woofers. They are hooked to two Carver M's in monoblock mode. They are still the best speakers I've ever listened to and I have had many high-end speakers over the years.

Next morning I decide to go have a look. These strange looking speakers. Peeping through the top I see these tiny speakers and complicated cross over.
I told myself someone must have tried something that was to no speaker standard. Would you like to hear them? I said if it's not a too much and really why would I want to waste my time listening to small little speakers staggered. The dq10s were connected to a Yahama amp, CD player and turn table.
I was asked to sit in the main chair where the boss usually sits. Lp or CD? Lp Sir. Let's hear Engelbert Humperdinck. Oh God old speaker old man new HiFi? When that sound started I sat up straight. When that man started singing I moved to the edge of the seat. I was now searching for the Engelbert he is right here. I have never ever heard something like this.
I did not care about the weight anymore I picket them up and walked 50 meters to my car with each one. Stands and all. I'm preparing my sound room that I have been planning for 5 years now.
I don't want to see or hear any other speaker again. Nothing will convince me. Reviewed Feb 16th, by willfromct. I started to explore the home audio world about 30 years ago. My dad worked with and knew Paul Klipsch.. The DQ 10's are arguably one of the best speakers ever produced in its class. I myself have spent hours and hours in recording studios..
I love accurate playback and hate everything else. I demand realistic.. IT will provoke your emotions and stimulate your senses. Recomended highly! Reviewed Jun 03rd, by Distort Tremendous quality in a mid 70s speaker. I have the original not mirrored and not modified version. Jazz is especially well appreciated with this set.

Mirrored pair. Forget nonsense about the power needs of these speakers. I completely refurbished my pair of DQ's that I bought in These wonderful speakers cannot be fully appreciated unless you have the stands. If you know where I may find a pair, please contact me through this website.
Cabre and mono coupled crossover Cabre The DQ 10 with DQ1 sub sound terrific! The amplification and the turntable are really great.
I will not change them anymore!

The ad described these as a mirrored pair in great condition with a re-cap and re-foam by Regnar. I'd been interested in these speakers for some time and decided to make an offer.
