DVP-AX is a comprehensive lineup of versatile and road-ready active loudspeakers. Class D amplification housed in ultra hard wearing cabinets make DVP-AX a perfect choice for hardworking DJ’s and musicians on the road.

The full-range models feature advanced DSP processing with 6 presets tailored to overcome many real-life sonic challenges and a practical 2 channel mic/line mixer makes life on stage easier.
The floor monitor models feature a 7-band EQ to help deliver maximum volume without feedback and a handy powered output for connecting to passive floor monitors.

While the electronics of DVP-AX set them apart from the competition, it is important not to overlook the custom Wharfedale Pro drivers in this lineup. Using dual layer LF transducers and the acclaimed IRIS X compression drivers, the mechanical features of DVP-AX have not been compromised.

DVP-AX delivers advanced electronics in a user-friendly format – but in a road-ready cabinet.

routed logoS

All DVP-AX feature a routed Wharfedale Pro logo in the MDF woodwork.

It is also a logo to be proud of. A logo that lets your audience know that the sound of your event will be of the highest possible quality.

Full range models with IRIS X

The coil size and electrical sensitivity of a loudspeaker transducer is critical to its performance.  DVP-AX loudspeakers now include our proprietary IRIS X design which delivers Increased coil Radius and Increased electrical Sensitivity.  The radius of the coil ensures smooth heat dissipation during prolonged high volume use, while the increased electrical sensitivity ensures that the transducer converts as much electrical power into sound output as the laws of physics allow.  

A hot transducer wastes energy, risks damage and distorts.  IRIS X reduces this through improved heat dissipation and improved efficiency.

In real-world terms, IRIS X transducers deliver higher SPL with less distortion.  They lead the market with specifications and are designed and built entirely within Wharfedale Pro.

Increased Radius Increased Sensitivity

Acoustically matched cabinets

The cabinets of the DVP-AX series has been developed to work in perfect harmony with the advanced drive units within. Special attention has been paid to the acoustic properties of the port and port mouth to ensure a huge bass output with detail and minimised distortion.

DVP-AX loudspeakers are also coated in the latest generation chip-resistant, Rhino Rock paint.

Full Range Models

DVP-AX12, DVP-AX15 and DVP-AX215 are Class D bi-amplified active loudspeakers.  Dedicated amps drives the dedicated drivers for maximum efficiency.

MONITORS

DVP-AX12M and DVP-AX15M have been designed for ‘onstage efficiency’.  With onboard 7-band graphic EQ it is quick and easy to reduce feedback and to maximise foldback SPL.  The secondary powered output also makes it quick and easy to hook up a secondary passive loudspeaker which uses the amplification of the DVP-AX monitor.

Subwoofers

The DVP-AX15B and DVP-AX18B subs complement the series – adding that extra low end punch to impress any audience.
