Being a 16 year old audiophile was tough but I got some cool points for owning neat speakers despite my need for volume/bass that they couldn't produce.
Talking about Dalhquist DQ10's, back in 1984 I had a stacked pair of these speakers powered by a Mark Levinson preamp and a big threshhold amp, they sounded great. My wife thought they were ugly so I had to dump them 3 months later.
It's interesting you blew the speakers because if I remember they required lots of power.
