Shown above are both models of the DNA loudspeaker.
we had to do it! The performance and popularity of our original small model DNA
horn-speakers got us to
wondering how spectacular might it be if we scaled them up to use a
The result well exceed our expectations, which were
speakers not only set a new performance benchmark
with our bigger
amplifiers, but also won in the 2 watt amplifier
category. As a
result they are our favorite speaker to pair with
our 25th Anniversary
Zen Triode amplifier because the speakers make it
sound like you have WAY MORE power than you actually do.
Bass on these rear loaded folded-horn speakers is unrivaled on either hi or low power amplifiers.

The results are just what the doctor ordered... an
almost perfect mirror of the original, just a lot more of it!
More efficiency, more body, more weight, more scale.
DNA2 FREQUENCY RESPONSE

Designer Steve Deckert talking about...
"For this scaled-up version called the DNA2, I already knew there
were many drivers that would sound great in this cabinet design.
In fact the prototypes were built with interchangeable baffles so we
could test all the possible combinations... When we got to the
two-way combination using in our DM947 drivers I knew it was all
over. In fact we stopped any additional testing after hearing this
"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 nearly 1/2 the driver's fs. This is a good
thing because you get that precious low bass with the speed of a higher
driver that moves less!"
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."
