Tannoy has announced the launch of their new DVS Series at this week’s ISE show in Amsterdam. The new range of surface mount loudspeakers is aimed at those fixed installation applications, “where stylish aesthetic and interior design ethic are just as critical considerations as crystal clear, high quality audio coverage,” according to the manufacturer.
Designed for a wide variety of discrete small and medium scale sound reinforcement applications, the DVS Series is a range of compact surface-mount loudspeakers of what is expected to be exceptional value and acoustic performance. A full bandwidth loudspeaker designed for commercial, professional and residential applications where environmental durability and high quality sound reproduction are demanded. For indoor and limited outdoor use, these extremely versatile loudspeakers are ideally suited to stereo or monaural background or foreground music systems in a multitude of applications including theme park attractions, retail premises, restaurants and cafés, hotel lobbies and bars, corporate audio visual, residential developments and houses of worship.
The range comprises of 3 models – DVS 4, DVS 6 and DVS 8. Each is based around a point-source driver design comprising a 4”, 6” or 8” mid bass driver respectively, with a coaxially mounted 19mm (0.75”) high frequency section, all mounted within a stylish and lightweight injection moulded surface-mount enclosure manufactured from UV/weather resistant ABS material. The new device is certified for water and dust ingress protection to IP64 standard and is currently pending UL Listed status (UL-1480 and UL-2043). This makes DVS Series a perfectly capable performer in challenging interior areas such as swimming pools, saunas or work areas where unusually high levels of dust or moisture may be present, as well as most outdoor applications where extreme environmental conditions or harsh weather are not a specific concern.
