As part of the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) project strategy, crab cavity correctors shall be installed around CMS and ATLAS experiments of the LHC. To accommodate the different crossing angle planes, two distinct cavity designs have been selected: the RF Dipole (RFD) and the Double Quarter Wave resonator (DQW). CERN has fabricated two double quarter wave resonators (DQW_{S}PS), for validation with a proton beam at the CERN SPS accelerator. Standard superconducting rf surface preparation

The performance results obtained after the first bare cavity tests for cavities DQW_{S}PS₀01 and DQW_{S}PS₀02 are shown in this paper, and include Q0 vs Vt curves, Lorentz Force Detuning (LFD) analyses and pressure sensitivity of a higher order mode.
