Leland Crooks brought a pair of DR250 speakers that he hoped to test. So we had a little time at the end of the day and we ran a couple sweeps.


Weight: 40 lbs
Dimensions: 22" x 22" x 22"
Power handling: 150wrms
Impedance: 8Ω
Frequency range: 100Hz - 16kHz
Sensitivity: 105dB/W/M
Max Output: 125dB/M
Distortion at 100 watts: 5%

DR250 Impedance

Impedance is 8Ω, so 28.28v input is 100 watts. Since we measured 10 meters away, the values correspond to both 2.83v/1M and 1W/1M.

The blue line is SPL, and the violet line shows distortion. Average distortion is 25dB under the fundamental, which is about 5%. Since measurement was taken at 10 meters, add 20dB to find SPL at 1 meter. With 100 watts input, the 10 meter measurement works out the same as 1 watt input measured at a distance of 1 meter.
