We introduce and study the Dunkl symmetric systems. We prove the well-posedness results for the Cauchy problem for these systems. Eventually we describe the finite speed of it. Next the semi-linear Dunkl-wave equations are also studied.

Key words: Dunkl operators; Dunkl symmetric systems; energy estimates; finite speed of propagation; Dunkl-wave equations with variable coefficients.
