There is no other way to put it than falsified information and leads many people astray due to their lack of research. Whether its regurgitated on avs over and over doesn't matter. Really that's what you who have been on here for years do is talk about the same things over and over with us up and coming learning ones. Or someone more knowledgable than you regurgitates information that helps you learn.
Ok, I guess I'll try again.
Show me the claims made by DT. The problem has been- again- that people simply do not properly understand what has (or has not) been contended.
Stating a loudspeaker has "response" at 18hz means just that: it has response. Whether down 3, 5, 10, 20, or 50dbs is really immaterial.
If DT DID indeed make a claim of 18hz output that's -3/6 dbs and it didn't measure as such, that's a different issue entirely. Please show it to me as I'd be anxious to see it myself.
But until then I'm going to continue to assume that people are simply "unhappy" with (or completely fail to understand) the fact that they state that their speakers have response much below the point where they fall off 3dbs. And that's not lying or being dishonest, it's simply not giving you what you want.
And on their own website they list "total frequency response 18hz-30khz".
So again, if it indeed has reponse in that range they're not lying about anything...if you REALLY need the -3db response contact the manufacturer with a 5 second email. If its omittance really bothers you so much, take your business elsewhere.
The consumer has a responsibility to secure the information they need before making a choice. A -3db point of a speaker isn't immune to such a reality.
