If you've got subs and would always use them, I'd go with the DSRs. If there's a reasonable number of gigs where a pair of speakers on sticks would do the job, the DZRs dig deeper.

Thanks. Kind of my line of thinking. There would be subs, maybe not for talking heads, but always for rock. Most of what i do is rock, as we used to know it, and i need the vocal clarity that all say this 112 has.

3 dB per cabinet is pretty significant in a lot of instances, especially for transients. Perhaps a more reasonable quantification might be that; if you're always hitting clip limiters on your DSR 112 then the DZR12 probably won't be the headroom you've needed. On SPL alone, it comes down to about $200 for 3 dB each speaker.
As i do not have DSR at the moment i do not know how loud they can get. The claimed output seems plenty to me. The extra spl seems to cost more than i need.  Thanks.

3 dB per cabinet is pretty significant...

The frequency response specs probably give a relatively accurate comparison of the low end but I'd question the max SPL spec. That single number is more often than not misleading. I don't think it's been shown (or subjectively claimed) by a user that the DZR gets 3dB louder than the DSR or, if it does, sounds good doing it. I think we're all still waiting on a DSR/DZR comparison.

agreed. But I just figure on all the specs being similarly misleading, from DSR to DZR, therefore it's not really the actual numbers I'm trusting but more the differences.

Peter, when you measured the cabinet in Monitor Mode did you have the cabinet on the ground configured as a wedge?

Hey Eric - these measurements were all snapped with the speaker on a stand, so the there's no half-space loading to compensate for the monitor mode's LF rolloff.

Hey Corey, yeh current spec marketing tools do suck, have forever i think. Have to do the legwork ourselves. This post has been around a while and still no a/b. I don't get it nor do i have the means to do it myself. I'd like to have sm80's but out of range this year. So we wait, for me only another 6 weeks. Thanks.
