ULTIMATE
”The Ultimate speaker series offers excellent performance thanks to designs, which focus on outstanding
sound quality and ease of installation. Our goal with the Ultimate series was to design speakers with performance that surpassed nearly everything else”
Sound is a subjective science. If we relied on measuring instruments alone in development, we wouldn’t come any
further than the range of our instruments. We want to go beyond that.
To achieve our goal in creating the Ultimate speaker series, we have developed several solutions that are unique
when it comes to material selection, magnet design and cone suspension. Clear and clean high frequency response
and transparency with textile soft dome tweeters. Neodymium magnets ensure high power handling. The result is an
incredibly good speaker line, which has proven itself in car audio competitions around the world.

maximum tightness
• Neodymium magnets
• Screw terminals (not 5.2 model)
• Hi-grade filters with ribbon coils,

• 28 mm tweeter with first rate textile
dome and die cast basket
Ultimate Nobelium – when the Iridium 6.2 received the EISA award as ”Mobile loudspeaker of
the year 2004-2005”, our engineers were encouraged to create something even better. After 1 years
work the Nobelium line was ready for the public.
This is now the top end of the current line of DLS
ULTIMATE speaker systems. The new die cast
basket let the speaker breathe and the aluminium
cone makes the sound clear and crispy. You can
enjoy listening for long hours, at high levels with
great pleasure.
The exceptional performance of this speaker
is a result of unique driver technology and advanced crossover design.
They come in 5,25”, 6,5” and 8” sizes as 2way systems. They use a 3” voice coil, neodymium magnet system and a cone made of aluminium. The tweeter is a 28 mm dome using a first-rate
textile material. The crossover uses coils made of
flat copper foil, these coils are normally used only
in the most exclusive home audio speaker sets.
All this together creates a unique sound quality
that can’t be described – it must be heard. We
believe that this speaker line will set a new standard in the world of Car Audio.

Nobelium subwoofers - ”simply the best”
After testing the first samples of these new
subwoofers our test panel was amazed. The Nobelium subwoofers are the perfect match to the
Nobelium 2-way kits. These subs are capable of
playing very loud but still very musical and controlled.
The Nobelium subwoofers have a strong and robust
lightweight aluminium cone with rubber surround.
The die cast aluminium basket, and the specially
designed grille has the same dark grey colour as
the rest of the series. Powerful dual magnets with
rubber cover. A large number of ventilation openings provide ventilation behind the centring spider. All made to give the voice coil o good cooling.
Dual 4 ohm voice coils with a high power handling
capacity up to 1 kilowatt. For both sealed and
vented enclosures. In 10”, 12” and 15” sizes.

as close as you can
get to THE perfect bass
The magazine wrote:
“DLS has succeeded in creating a
magnificent subwoofer with the
Ultimate Iridium 15 – it kicks out
power, sounds amazing and entirely
justifies its high price.”
Some people just want to get as close as possible to the perfect sound. With the Iridium 2-and
3-way systems we have showed that DLS are
capable of making the best possible component
kits for car use, and now, with the IRIDIUM subwoofers, the series is complete.
We combined all our experiences from the
UR and SP-series subwoofers when we decided
to make the best possible subwoofers, and out
came the new Iridium subwoofers. These subs are
capable of playing very loud but still with a musical and controlled bass that made the UR-series
famous worldwide.
The Iridium subwoofers have a strong and
robust lightweight paper cone with rubber surround. The die cast aluminium basket, and the
specially designed grille has the same dark grey
shade as the rest of the series. Powerful dual
magnets with rubber cover. Ventilated dual 4
ohm voice coils with a high power handling capacity up to 1 kilowatt. For both sealed and vented
enclosures. Available in 10”, 12” and 15” sizes as

TEST WINNER
UP6 was test winner in the German
magazine CAR & HIFI. Eight different
compo systems in the prize range
from 340 to 500 Euro were tested
and DLS UP6 came out as winner.
The magazine wrote:
“The most harmonious reproduction
in the middle and higher notes was
offered by DLS, it went to work quickly
making friends and with great love
of detail. No other system in the test
plays so beautifully balanced. The
best goodies offered by DLS are the
natural reproduction of voices and
instruments!”
(Note ! The new UP6i is even better)
ULTIMATE UP - A good alternative if you want
our best speakers, but at a slightly lower price.
Same advanced filter as used in the more expensive Ultimate speakers. Upper suspension
made of rubber, and cones of Aluminium or poly-
propylene.Use a 2” voice coil (52 mm) and a
hybrid neodymium/ferrite magnet system, small
in size but big on magnetic force. . Creates a
clear and clean high frequency response, and
good transparency, with the soft dome fabric
tweeters.The neodymium magnets ensure high
power handling.
The voice coils in all drivers are wound with
flat aluminium wire for maximum tightness.

FULFILL YOUR DREAMS
Seven different models made to fulfil every
need.
The DLS Ultimate amplifiers are more powerful
and good-sounding than most other amplifiers.
Sound reproduction is extremely good, we doubt
if you’ve ever heard anything cleaner and clearer
sound from a car audio amplifier. The power
supply is over dimensioned and most models are
1 ohm stable.
The new TA2 tube amplifier is in a class of it’s
16
own with excellent sound qualities, a true reference amplifier.
In the measured power cubes shown, you can
see that the amplifiers can deliver full output even
when impedance drops. Built-in protection circuitry
guards against short-circuits, overloads and high
temperatures. The amplifiers work in class AB
and have output transistors that are carefully
matched in pairs to minimize transient distortion.
All amplifiers have some things in common,
and this is the generously engineered DC/DC
converters with large electrolytic capacitors for
constant power reserves even at the most powerful output peaks.
The terminals are made of gold-plated brass
and have been designed for direct connection to
heavy cables. Most amplifiers are equipped with
built-in fan control that electronically controls fan
speeds to compensate for temperature increases.
SETTING NEW STANDARDS
ULTIMATE series TA2 is a unique HiFi two-channel amplifier with 2 x 100 Watts output power.
This is an extremely well-sounding amplifier for
car use. We did not compromise in any section of
the construction when we designed the electronic circuits. The TA2 is using the very best components in all sections of the amplifier, from the
input circuitry, through the whole amplifier to the
final output stage. Two pieces of CV4010 pento-
des is used in the signal path. These tubes are
made by VALVE Electronics in England during
1982 - 1984. The Valve Electronics Company produced the best sounding tubes in the tube industry before they closed. The tubes are spare
parts for military equipment so they fulfil military
specifications. We use silver wire Capacitors in
signal path and power supply for a focused
sound image. Special designed DLS Audio ca-
pacitors in key points and WIMA polypropylene
capacitors. Four pieces of 4700 uF are used on
each channel for a deep and wide sound stage.
Dual mono power system design plus separate
power supply for tube and pre-amp stage for
clear sound reproduction. The TA2 was installed
in three of the winning cars in the IASCA and European finals 2006.

ohm stable. Built-in electronically controlled fan.
High and low pass filters as well as a subsonic
filter on the mono channel are incorporated. Remote sub level control is included.
The perfect amplifier for a front system and
one or more subwoofers in the trunk.

outstandingly authentic via the DLS
amplifier. This means that this DLS A7
from the high North is among the best
multi-channel amplifiers on the planet,
A6 - The Mono Amp
A one ohm stable monoblock that’s perfect for
the SPL competitor. Extremely powerful power
supply. The output power in 1 ohm is a true1200
RMS Watts. A cooling fan is built in but the amplifier also provides a built-in fan control for external cooling fan. Continuous phase control and
remote level control included. Built-in, variable
50-125 Hz low pass filters for subwoofers plus a
25 Hz subsonic filter. Frequency range of amplifier 20-125 Hz. Dual power terminals where you

and is really worth its 1250 Euro.
A3 - The Twin Mono
A3 includes two very powerful channels. A true,
dual mono block with separate power sources
that provides power output of 2 x 150 Watts with
4 ohm stereo and 550/870/1000 Watts with
4/2/1,33 ohm mono bridge mode. Built-in fan
control as well as high- and low pass filters. Dual
power terminals connect the power feeds or a
DLS Power Cap. Phase reverse button.

TA2 - The Tube Amp
Our goal was to make the best sounding car
amplifier in the world. If we succeeded or not, is
up to our customers to decide, but here is what
the German magazine CAR & HIFI wrote in their test:

used as a subsonic filter or high pass filter for
front systems. The frequency can be switched
on the filter so that two of the channels can be
used for mid-range woofers. Dual power terminals and output terminal for electronically controlled cooling fan.

When space is limited
This line is designed to fit most car models straight
from the box.
This speaker line have shallower baskets and a
different magnet design – instead of traditional
magnets, extra strong strontium magnets are used.
Combined with high-class, individually tested crossover filters for each type, the quality of sound is
first-rate. How can they sound so good without costing more?
The answer is in carefully tested and adapted
component parts. Combined with any subwoofer in
the Reference series they gives an excellent performance in all kind of vehicles. These speakers
come in two versions.
The PS4, RS5 and RS6 have single filter boxes
which mean that the filter box for each channel has
a combined filter box for the bass driver and tweeter.
The models PS4A, RS5A and RS6A have split filter
boxes for midrange driver and tweeter. This makes
it easier to install if you mount the midrange in your
door, and the tweeter on the dashboard.
RS5 / RS5A and RS6 / RS6A are using our new EFR
dual cone technique for extended frequency response.

the easiest way to pump up the bass
When you listen to a factory installed sound system you immediately feel that something’s missing, the
bass!
This can easily be fixed by installing an active
subwoofer enclosure. It is the easiest way to get a
good bass sound in any type of car. These active
boxes are made of strong MDF board covered
with grey-black felt mat.
The amplifier SBA 185 is a class AB amplifier
with a power output of 180 true RMS watts which
guaranties a superb deep bass that don’t lack
the kick. They also include both high and low level
signal input and continuously variable phase
control. The high level input include an automatic
start function. We use the SBA185 in all our active subwoofer boxes.
PASSIVE SPEAKER ENCLOSURES
If you already have a suitable amplifier installed
in your vehicle you can buy the same boxes with
these subs, but without the built in amplifier. Just
put it in your trunk, connect to the amplifier, and
you will get a superb bass sound without a lot of
work. All the active boxes are also available as
passive.

Test reports from magazines all over the world
IRIDIUM 6.2
Tested in the German magazine autohifi 3/2003
The magazine wrote:
”In the auto hi-fi listening test the DLS made it
immediately clear that, in terms of sound, it
belongs in the premier loudspeaker league. Its
finely dissolving, but never aggressive sounding
treble area, and the warm, impulse-friendly bass
made for a lot of fun while listening. It did not
matter whether the system was being tortured
with evil techno tracks or spoilt with natural instruments; the Ultimate Iridium was in its element
with any type of music. Only the voice area sounded a bit fore grounded and minimally faded,
which is the fault of the bass box membrane having a life of its own.
Synopsis: The latest youngster from DLS
clearly belongs at the top of the class. For its silky, finely dissolving treble area alone, the Ultimate Iridium can be recommended to all car hi-fi
fans who demand high-class front staging.
ULTIMATE AMPLIFIER A5
Tested in German magazine autohifi high-end
2003
The magazine wrote:
”Eagerly, the editors now connected the amp in
the laboratory – and registered excellent
readings. With 2 x 68 and 1 x 305 watts at 4 ohm,
the A5 is excellently served. The 2-ohm reading
was even better: here the DLS actually registered 2 x 100 and 1 x 456 watts. In addition to the
excellent output yield, there was a high attenuation factor of around 900 in the bass range, a very
good distortion factor of 0.009 per cent and a signal-to-noise ration of 96 dB. This ought to be
enough to silence the last of those who doubt the
three-channel concept.
With a neutral tone, which is particularly taut
in the bass range, this Swedish model then lets
fly in the listening room. Especially with tracks
with plenty of percussion and drums, she really
28
cuts loose. But whatever type of music she is given, the A5 always produces stress-free reproduction with gentle, almost silky high notes,
which then also complement the somewhat harsh
tweeters. Just as convincing was the mid-range,
which revealed plenty of body in sonorous male
voices and also produced the necessary volume
for female voices.
With this impressive performance the DLS A5
does not need to give way to any four-channel
amplifier – the tone and the readings speak for
themselves.”
REFERENCE AMPLIFIER RA20
Tested in the German magazine Auto Hifi 7/2005
The magazine wrote:
”The RA 20 stood soundly in full element in the
listening room as well. The power amplifier actually
managed to bewitch the tester by delivering
acute, virtually bubbly highs and a brilliant allround performance. The mid tone range remained
constantly neutral providing a nearly plastic vocal
rendering whilst in the bass range the amplifier
gave a tense and dynamically good show.
In view of this convincingly all-too-true sound
performance, this Swedish amp is virtually on
level with its bigger siblings and for this reason
only it deserves the most smashing accolade”
CLASSIC B6
Test winner in the Finnish magazine autosound
2003
The magazine wrote:
”The test winner
DLS was the second cheapest series in the test,
yet the accessories included speaker grilles and
good installation accessories for the tweeter, and
the band division filter had an option for selecting the level of the treble. The connectors could
be sturdier, and where are the instructions? Overall the best system tested.”
Iridium 15
Tested in the German magazine Auto Hifi 4/2005
The magazine wrote:
”In the Test Factory measuring lab, the Swede
was allowed to run riot with the Boulder amplifier
- and both the sub and the testers had their fun.
The Ultimate Iridium 15 was already going hell
for leather at 90 Hz and delivered an impressive
119 dB. That this was not everything it had on
offer was proven by the measurements at 50 and
70 Hz, with the DLS packing out yet another 4 dB
– making a total ear deafening 123 dB.
Verdict: DLS has succeeded in creating a
magnificent subwoofer with the Ultimate Iridium
15 - it kicks out power, sounds amazing and entirely justifies its high price”.
REFERENCE AMPLIFIERS THEY MUST BE HEARD
These amplifiers have a warm and detailed
sound making it possible to listen for many hours
without tiring your ears.
They can be used together with most factory
installed car stereo equipment thanks to the ad-
vanced high level input circuitry. They are equipped with features that are sufficient for the normal
user as well as for the sound quality competitor. A
modern slim design makes them fit into most
cars.
The Reference amplifiers are 2 ohm stable,
able to deliver the highest power peaks without
distortion or dynamic loss. In the European Car
sound finals in the last years, several of the prize
winning DLS cars used these excellent ampli-

PERFORMANCE
It’s a mystery to many that the Performance series can give such a spacious sound despite their down to earth price.
The reality is that good design and space age materials can yield performance way beyond what you might expect.
You will find all kinds of speakers. Coaxial speakers from 4” to 8”, different 2- or 3-way component kits, plus a wide
range of 6 x 9” speakers. Subwoofers in 8”, 10”, and 12” sizes complete the line.
We want to offer the latest technology. This is why we are continuously upgrading our products. For example a C5 or C6 speaker kit from year 2000 has not much in common with today’s model. An example is the new EFR dual cone system for extended
frequency range that we implemented in many of our midbass drivers.
”The Performance / CLASSIC series is a long-time favourite in the DLS line. Solid construction with durable materials gua-
rantees many years of good sound. With superior filters incorporating high-class components, you’ll get the famed DLS sound
- sound that satisfies even the most hardcore music enthusiast - at reasonable prices”
CLASSIC becomes PERFORMANCE
In the near future all DLS CLASSIC products will have a new name, we change to PERFORMANCE series, and we have already
started with the amplifiers. The speakers will change to the new name in the nearest future. All products will keep their product
names, but the packing will be new!

Feel the rhythm
Two different types of subwoofers are included in
the Performance series.
W308B, W310D and W312D are good sounding
subs with cone of non-pressed carbon fibre reinforced paper and cone suspension of butyl rubber.
They create a good sound in most enclosure types.
Long time ago, one or more woofers were installed on the hat shelf or against the backrest in the car.
The luggage compartment served as the enclosure.
Now, we are once again developing woofers for
open-air installations, i.e. installations without enclosures. The OA8, OA10D and OA12D have dual magnet
systems, stable baskets and dual spiders to handle
the heavy-duty demands that are inherent when installing a woofer without a box. They also work well
in enclosures if you prefer that.

The start of something new
The new Performance K-series is the start of
something new! These are the cheapest 2-way
systems and subwoofers in the DLS speaker
line, but they are very competitive.
The KW subwoofers are designed for use in
sealed enclosures. In a well built enclosure
they create a bass sound that can be compared even with more expensive subs.
DLS EFR technology extends the frequency
range of the mid bass driver in our component
kits. It allows us to increase the tweeter X-over
frequency to a point where we eliminate the
risk of distorted sound from the tweeter. The
EFR-technology also improves the OFF-axis
reproduction which is very important in a door
installation. The result is more pleasant sounding speakers; it is as simple as that!

C6 - TEST WINNER IN THE GERMAN MAGAZINE AUTO HIFI 6/2002.
DLS C6 were tested together with 14
other 6,5” component kits in the price
range 80 - 200 Euro.
The magazine wrote:
LET THE PARTY BEGIN
“The Swedish compo did a very
sensitive and pleasant job. It gave
a surprisingly clean and highly convincing performance, with a dry and
clearly structured bass, and a quiet,
but detailed treble.”
The Performance B & C-series are two-way systems consisting of two separate tweeters and two
woofer/midrange speakers in sizes from 4” up to
6,5”. Passive crossover filters split the signal between the two speaker drivers.
The tweeter filter has selectable sensitivity
in two or three steps. Choose the sensitivity that
produces the most pleasing treble in your system. C36 is a 3-way system in this line with a 6,5”
woofer, 4” midrange and a 1” tweeter. The B5A,
B6A, C5A and C6A mid bass drivers uses our
new EFR dual cone technology for Extended Frequency Response.
DLS EFR technology extends the frequency range
of the mid bass driver in our component kits. It
allows us to increase the tweeter X-over frequency to a point where we eliminate the risk of distorted sound from the tweeter. The EFR-technology also improves the OFF-axis reproduction
which is very important in a door installation. The
result is more pleasant sounding speakers.

LEGENDERY SOUND
The Coaxial Classic series is the easiest path to the
legendary DLS sound. The speakers are constructed from the same high-class components as used
in the Classic 2-way systems. The difference is that the Coaxial has tweeters
integrated with the woofer/midrange. The tweeter in
the Coaxial Classic 400-series is of the same type as
used in our 2-way systems, meaning a silk dome
and a powerful neodymium magnet cooled with
Ferro fluid-oil.
Moreover, on the DLS 428 and 962, the direction
of the tweeter is adjustable. All speakers are easily
powered with a strong bass, clear midrange, and a
soft and airy treble.
DLS 960 is a popular 6 x 9” with integrated 12
dB crossover. It sounds so good that it has been our
best–selling 6 x 9” for the past 10 years.

Upgrade your factory-installed system! You won’t
see the difference - you’ll hear it.
The speakers are designed with the same
care as all other DLS speakers. The special lowprofile tweeter has a design that fits most car’s
standard speaker receptacles. The crossover is
integrated with the speaker.
These coaxial speakers are available in six sizes:
4”, 5.25”, 6.5”, 5x7”, 6x9” and 7x10”. Despite the
somewhat simpler configuration, this series
sounds remarkably good in relation to its price.

This feature comes with all amplifier models
in this series.
BASS BOOST
Bass Boost is used to increase the bass volume
at an interval of bass frequencies.
You can select the centre frequency between
25 Hz and 80 Hz and the amplification between 0
dB (no amplification) and +18 dB (full amplification). This function is used to compensate for the bass
box function and to adjust for your own taste of
bass. It is included in CA23 and CA41 models.
CAD11 and CAD15 has also a bass boost function variable from 0 - +18 dB at 45 Hz centre frequency.
VARIABLE PHASE CONTROL
CA12, CA31, CAT31, CA51, CAD11 and CAD15
models include a variable phase shift control on
the sub channel. This control helps you to get
best possible front stage imaging from your subwoofer.

THE M AND R-SERIES
HOME AUDIO
”M” as in Music! The M-series are DLS most
advanced high end speakers. They’re built for
stability and dynamics, down to the smallest micro
detail. The drivers use a very advanced magnetic
system and aluminium diaphragms damped by
an innovative dust cap, combined with low weight
aluminium voice coils and a cast basket.
The exceptional performance of R-series
speakers is a result of advanced speaker-design
skills and unique driver technology. The low-mid
unit has a lightweight cone made of non-compress
paper, which provides a natural bass and a very clear
and detailed midrange. It meets the 28 mm dome
tweeter well and presents an uncoloured high midrange
and a distinct high-end performance.
THE D AND T-SERIES
Created for those who love both music
and movies. Their slim shape and modern design
fits them nicely in almost any living room. Preferably
beside a nice, flat, wall TV. Flexible systems with
fully integrated sound characteristics, allowing
you to choose exactly the speaker size to suit
you. It won’t matter if you have the latest 7.1 home
cinema or simply your favourite listening armchair
set aside in the corner for lazy afternoons with
your record collection for company.
OFF THE FLOOR speakers
DLS In-wall & ON-WALL speakers are easy
to install and you’ll get excellent DLS sound wherever you want. Install a pair on each side of your
42” plasma screen, or as ­ satellites behind you.
Or let them provide a pleasant sound background
in your kitchen or bathroom. You won’t be disappointed!
The speakers can also be used for sound in public
places, such as in a supermarket or your office.
