CARDINAL DVM Loudspeakers

Cost-efficient and precise tools for installation

The new loudspeakers from German manufacturer CARDINAL DVM cover most applications in the daily installation business. A special emphasis was placed on high-grade wooden cabinets, an optimised driver selection and crossover design plus good accessories. All loudspeakers can be used directly on the amplifier without a controller. With only three different performance types a very large range of applications can be covered, no matter if for retail or catering installations, community halls or lecture theatres, school halls, a live club or conference and seminar rooms.

All models are 100% made in Germany and meet the CARDINAL DVM typical high quality standards.
Owing to the compact enclosures with its multitude of integrated mounting points, the available accessories and the optional lacquer finish in the required custom RAL colour a trouble-free and unobtrusive mounting is ensured.

“Our customers have often asked for loudspeakers from our company“, says Peter Rieck – Key Account & Distribution Manager with SOMMER CABLE. And he continues: “The order pooling on a few suppliers makes the order procedures easier and cuts down on costs. With an almost full range for installation firms SOMMER CABLE can do precisely this. We are known for our very good availability, high-quality components and our good service. Hence it was obvious for us to respond to these expectations from our clientele and include the CARDINAL DVM loudspeaker systems into our product range.“
