Merely 28 inches tall, this beautiful fabric wrapped speaker features a solid walnut top and bottom, a single 5 inch crossover-less driver, and get this...
It covers the full 9.96 octaves of human hearing!

And while the driver is rated at around 90dB @ 1 watt /1 meter, that actual efficiency in this cabinet design is closer to 93/94dB making it compatible with high quality tube amplifiers as small as 2 watts.

This seemingly impossible stunt of getting such performance from such a small cabinet is made possible by one of DECWARE's creator Steve Deckert's original designs.


 





World's Smallest Full Range Horn...  

Nearly 20Hz~20kHz from a single driver without corner loading!



THE DNA HORN DESIGN (C) STEVE DECKERT / DECWARE








The DECWARE DNA HORN FLARE



BESIDES HAVING REAL BASS, The DNA horn does a few other things that are foreign to most single-driver full-range speakers...
  • DNA's have remarkably flat frequency response - it's not tipped up or rolled off.
  • DNA's do not shout, and have no glare. They are however extremely detailed.
  • DNA's image with world class showmanship and create an immersibley deep sound-stage because they can be pulled out into the room. They do not require the room corners for bass reinforcement.
  • The DNA's horn flare creates output from around 23Hz to 5kHz with an approximate 6dB slope. This means that the output of the horn flare is putting mid-range frequencies at -30dB with a continuing slope graduating to -60dB at around 18K.  This is an ideal response for ambient enhancement without risk of damaging the focus of your sound stage.

Here is the gated response taken of the DNA horn.  The BLUE line represents the drivers near field response which is incredibly flat to 40Hz combined with the GREEN line representing the response from the rear horn mouth which is active at 20Hz!

THE DNA DRIVER

A fantastic single driver loudspeaker owes a lot of it's sound and performance to the driver used.  With no other drivers and no crossovers it leaves much of the burden of success on the driver itself.  So here's a bit about the driver we used:






Markaudio Alpair 10P-A 6" Paper-GRF Cone Full Range

From the Alpair Literature:

This Alpair 10P Gen.1 represents a significant development of Markaudio Full-range drivers. The production history of the Alpair 10 series is well known inside purist audiophile circles but this is the first time that a paper cone version has appeared in the 10 series.

The cone is the most radical shallow design Markaudio has produced for this size of driver. To maintain its stability, the materials used include an arrangement of glass reinforced fibers. The dispersion characteristic is ultra wide. The 10P is frequency range capable to +25-kHz with an efficiency of 89.5dB. These efficiencies were achieved by considerable design efforts to reduce mass. The 10Pʼs power train under moving mass conditions is less than 5.2g while retaining Markaudioʼs “long throw” design feature. The coil winding is “high stress” type forming the tight band arrangement on its body. The result is one of the lightest coils deployed is this size class, weighing under 2.2g.

The power-train suspension compliance is extremely sensitive. It is capable of large extension for this class of Full-Range audio driver (7-mm 1 way, limited by the Arrestor).

The Alpair 10P is a “purist” technical driver. Its purpose is to serve the audiophile and experimental markets. Due to the highly emittance-sensitive power-train, this driver will need users to take note of the need for high quality lower power amplification and audiophile level source. The Alpair 10P should not be considered as a “general purpose” emitter.









Designer Steve Deckert talking about...

The DRIVER: "It's the best driver I've heard straight out the box with no modifications.  In fact there is absolutely nothing I can do to it or tweak on it to make it better... most impressive!"

The CABINET: "As you may have figured out by looking at the frequency response - the secret to the DNA horn design is that it stretches bass response down to 1/2 the driver's fs. This is a good thing because you get that precious low bass with the speed of a higher fs driver that moves less!"


"This speaker does three things exceptionally well: 

1) It has extraordinary bass extension and quality.

2) It has world class imaging capabilities.

3) It has unusually flat and smooth frequency balance."

It can do all of it with just a couple watts.
