And I crave dynamics/excitement!!
what can I say....Im a simple person.
On a side note.- I must say that I feel that waveguides as a whole are the answer for domestic audio reproduction. Im convinced of it now. Having made the waveguide on the dtqwt and its variants, what do you think?
I've visited Troels and listened to the DTQWT. There's no doubt that Troels is knowing what he is doing. The DTQWT does not sound laid back at all to my ears.
We played all kinds of music for hours at 100dB+ and I had no listening fatigue at all. This tells me the speaker is perfectly designed.
More treble (and distortion) will make my ears bleed so Troels did this very right IMHO. Change one resistor to adjust the level of the tweeter, easy and cheap.
Look into the Hørning Agathon Ultimate which is the inspiration for the DTQWT I think. I've not heard the Agathons but the Euprodite at Tommy Hørnings place in Brabrand/Århus. I was very disappointed about the Euprodite. The modified Lowther was too colored for my taste and the bass was lacking punch and power ten fold! They played deep, yes, but who want such big headphones!?
The DTQWT is another story. So clean, uncolored and neutral! And dynamics in spades! And the bass? Deep, clean, detailed, powerful and scale the acoustic bass to have a true life like size! Wow! :-D
Very few can make crossovers that really blend the sound from multiple drivers together so it really works. Troels is one of those very few masters. I'm indeed impressed.
Happy to be building my own pair of the DTQWT, and now in MKII, check troelsgravesen.dk
