Sleep Soundly and Practice Safe Sound
The new Drawmer SP2120 Speaker Protector is making its AES debut at stand number 856.

The SP2120 front panel features an integral security keylock to ensure that adjustments to maximum volume levels are implemented by key holders only. Click below for more information
