Sleep Soundly and Practice Safe Sound
The new Drawmer SP2120 Speaker Protector is making its AES debut at stand number 856.
As its name suggests the 1U processor eliminates the possibility of 'unauthorized' excessive sound pressure levels on speaker systems which could result in damage to both chassis drivers and electronics. The unit also gives venues the opportunity to comply with the local legislation regarding noise levels. The SP2120 front panel features an integral security keylock to ensure that adjustments to maximum volume levels are implemented by key holders only.
