Yamaha have launched a brand new range of PA speakers that aim to boldly go where no speaker has gone before. Taking inspiration from their big brother, the DSR Series, Yamaha have managed to combine FACE-MELTING power in a totally compact and easily portable unit. What every musician wants from their speakers is a) to be able to carry them between gigs without breaking body a part and b) to sound as loud, as pure and as awesome as humanly possible.
Never before have you been able to get active loudspeakers that are both portable AND affordable, as well as harbouring the kind of power that the DXR Series boasts. Generally speaking, the smaller and more compact your unit, the lower the audio quality. Team Yamaha, however, have pushed the speedboat out and only gone and combined the two most important features that a musician desires from their speaker system. Let’s take a closer look at this incredible range…
The most compact of the DXR Series speakers, the DXR8 makes the most of its 1100W of power, delivering extremely high output while maintaining outstanding resolution. Adding a DXS12 subwoofer gives you an ultra-compact high-power SR system.
Portable, yet capable of producing an astonishing 131 dB SPL, the DXR10’s compact, functional design makes it ideal for a wide range of applications. Whether providing simple vocal/instrument amplification, very powerful floor monitoring or comprising a compact SR system—the DXR10 delivers without compromising sound quality and power.
The DXR12 is an extremely high-power loudspeaker that is capable of producing a maximum SPL of 132dB with its impressive 1100W of power. It is the perfect solution for live sound applications that demand wide bandwidth and extremely high-resolution sound.
The DXR15 achieves class-leading SPLs and full bandwidth performance by combining a powerful Class-D amplifier with a high-power woofer and Yamaha’s cutting edge technologies. Throw in some D-CONTOUR and you’ll feel like you’re using a subwoofer.
The DXS12 is an extremely compact and powerful subwoofer equipped with a high-efficiency 950W Class-D amplifier and a 12” high-output woofer housed in an acoustically optimized band-pass enclosure.Try out our powerful D-XSUB low frequency processing for low-end you would never expect from a compact 12” subwoofer.
The all-new DXS15 subwoofer delivers powerful yet focused low end reaching as low as 42Hz. The DXS’s fully optimized band-pass design combines with its powerful Class-D amplifier, long-travel 15” woofer, and formidable DSP to deliver a tight, impressive bass with outstanding depth and high power output.
In short, if it’s a portable, affordable and stupidly powerful speaker system you’re after, the Yamaha DXR & DXS Series is the one for you. Buying any of these speakers is a short-cut route to making you sound amazing on stage, without breaking the bank. Or your back, for that matter. Team Yamaha, we salute you. High fives all round.
