Lovely coherent sound. A piece of dowel in the front of each of the feet relieves any sag, and firms up the sound.

I just bought a pair of these DM 6 speakers and was amazed at the sound. These have Kevlar mid-range cones and a fairly large woofer.. No need for a Sub woofer either as they produce deep rich bass sound. mid-range and tweeters are really good also - they may look a little odd to some - Pregnant Penguins as they called.. but the sound is the main thing after all. They really blow away the Paradigm 7SE's that I replaced them with. I do tend to like the Acoustic Suspension speakers over the Bass Reflex better.

re: DM6

Hi there, quite new to this,I have a pair off B&W DM6 loudspeakers, that I would like to restore.Does any one know where I might be able to buy capacitors to replace the old ones.

re: DM6

Hi Anthony,

To answer your question you can find speaker capacitors at both www.partsexpress.com and www.partsconnexion.com Ebay is also a good source as well.

However, unless the capacitors are electrolytic, they shouldn't need to be changed due to age.


re: DM6

Just picked up a pair and they are "loverly" but the Bass units are suffering from the Surrounds sagging.

The Spec Sheet does not give the dimensions of the Woofers, does anyone know what they are and/or where to find the correct surrounds?

re: DM6

Rotate the drivers 180 degrees.
