Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Dunlavy

I'm a fan of John Dunlavy designs, owned Duntech Princess for 19 years.

But in my experience in listening to Duntech and DAL speakers I don't believe any of them would work very well in a 12 x 22 x 8 room. They all require wide separation (which they can in-fill nicely when set up properly) but also good distance from sidewalls. So your only option would be placing speakers on the long wall. My Princesses (same size and driver configuration as the SC-IVa) recommended at least 10' listening distance to allow proper convergence of the drivers. So even long wall would be a tight fit. I expect in a room only 12' wide your listening seat would be up against the opposite wall, not the best placement either in my experience.

I've heard Revels a few times but can't comment on any specific model.
