Again with that compliance issue around 1KHz and truly wacky frequency response. What on earth is going on there?
 
I've specifically said before that there is a point where sheer bass extension, bass output, and dynamic capability/distortion performance can overcome gross errors in frequency response and directivity performance, but I still don't like this at all. I wasn't thinking of a basic 2-way bookshelf when I made that statement.

What is going on here seems to be a 6 dB filter for the tweeter at 4 kHz and a 7inch woofer with a 12 dB filter, that has to work way above the point of beaming. Including an enclosure, which seem to ring and rattle a bit (so a German online magazine states: I haven't heard the speaker yet)....
 
The small Dynaudios seem to excel at being punchy for their size. I had a set of the much older budget model DM 2/6 that went surprisingly loud. They had almost the same Dynaudio house curve as in this review, with that upper treble lift. For me it was a bit much after a while, but most "normal" people enjoy that slightly brighter vibe.
