The Swedish-made Guru QM10 loudspeaker is a small, two-way monitor loudspeaker, measuring only 9.5 inches tall, 12 inches wide and 10 inches deep weighing 13 pounds. A single pair of European-style 4mm binding posts is located at the rear of the enclosure and accepts normal banana plug connectors.
The drivers consist of a 16mm German-made tweeter and 102mm (four-inch) paper-coned midrange/woofer made by Tymphany of Denmark to GURU's specifications. These work in a vented 10-liter enclosure and are crossed over at 2,700 Hz. GURU claims a low-frequency response down to 30Hz. The QM10 has been used for years in recording studios and manufactured for home use since October 2007.
The GURUs have blue leds in each speaker baffle located between the woofer and tweeter. These flash when the speaker is pushed beyond its capabilities. The Gurus will play reasonably loud, but not LOUD LOUD, as you might expect of a speaker this size.
We located an online review from Positive Feedback whose printed review found " the GURU QM10 speakers to be remarkable performers. They are truly full-range speakers in an incredibly small package. They image extremely well and have extraordinary dynamic range."
