Anyone have info on these speakers? Lots of info about the 10's but very litte about the DQ28's. From what I can see they were a pretty good speaker in there day. What say you?

I have owned DQ-10's (3 sets at one time), DQ-28's and DQ-20's.
The 20's and 28's are much more "modern" in terms of design, drivers, specs etc, but I kept going back to the "old" DQ-10's. They just sounded more musical to me.
But the DQ-20's & 28's are still great sounding speakers. I put them right up there with my favorites like Polk SDA's & RTA's, A/D/S, Magneplanars, Spica's, Vandersteens etc.

Everyone talks about the 10's, they must sound great.

DQ10's are the only Dahlquist's I have ever like the sound of. I agree the 20's and 28's are more modern sounding. A bit to bright for my taste.

Every time I see a thread talking about DQ10's I get the itch to rebuild mine. I enjoyed them for years, but they need some love. Some DQ groupie needs to take them off my hands so I won't be tempted any more. Their just a bit too wide for any of my areas except where my SDA's are now.

The 10's get a lot of love, I'm not getting the same feeling about the 28's.

I have DQ10s and DQ30Is. The 30Is are a bit brighter but with better bass and more punch. Both are nice as I imagine the 28s are.
