DPA Installation Mic Guide

DPA Installation Microphone Solutions

When a single speaker has to deliver a message to hundreds of people or through a conference system, the microphone has to be the very best. The d:dicate™, d:screet™ and d:fine™ series of microphones deliver remarkably clear sound with optimum rejection of background noise.

Get Closer to Trouble-Free Sound

Enabling outstanding sound in acoustically-challenging venues can be very tricky. But choosing the proper microphones makes everything easier. The right mics can minimize potential problems before they pop up and guarantee customer satisfaction after project close. Whatever the setting, DPA supercardioid mics combine controlled directionality with excellent rejection of background noise into an elegant mic solution for even the most difficult space.

DPA mics ensure a smooth project and a satisfied customer by providing:

  • Maximum speech intelligibility regardless of acoustical environment
  • High gain before feedback means fewer speaker placement issues
  • Rejection of mobile phone interference
  • Consistent sound from every microphone, every time

It all starts with the right mic.
The mic is the important first link in the sound chain and, as always, if you choose the best solutions for your audio system, your end result will sound better. DPA microphones provide the essential tools needed to overcome the obstacles and challenges that are common to all AV consultants. Whether in an auditorium, board room, conference venue, courtroom, house of worship, stand-alone podium or even a theater setting, our condenser microphones secure speech intelligibility. By choosing the right mics and complementing them with the right audio system components, you can ensure that every word said will be heard – throughout the space. No more struggling with EQ settings to compensate for bad microphone discolorations.

Depending on the surroundings and your specific needs, you can pick between a wide variety of installed mic solutions; including hanging, floor and table-mount solutions.
