Tannoy launches installation range at ISE 2001The DVS Series from Tannoy
The Netherlands - Tannoy has announced the launch of their DVS Series, a range of surface mount loudspeakers 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.

The range comprises of three 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 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, says the company.

The durable and scuff resistant ABS enclosure is available in black or white painted finish and comes with integral mild steel grille designed with optimum aesthetic sensitivity in mind. A colour-matched steel mounting bracket is included, which fits easily to the device via finger-tightened plastic screw-nut on the top and bottom of the enclosure, and audio connection is via standard euroblock.

Thanks to the point-source driver design, DVS Series can be mounted vertically or horizontally without compromising the dispersion and coverage control, offering versatility where location is concerned. Additionally, a transformer-equipped version of each model is available, with integrated low insertion loss line transformer for 70V or 100V distributed sound applications.
