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.
Our development team took full advantage of a number of advanced digital technologies, both new and refined, based on Yamaha's extensive experience accumulated over many long years of developing professional audio equipment. Everything from the detailed management of crossover, EQ and time alignment to the limiter settings, protection functions and precise dynamic control of the sound, was subjected to endless simulation, in-house and field testing to ensure that these speakers produce the highest level of sound quality at the highest output levels possible. Combined with Yamaha’s advanced analog signal processing and acoustic technologies, the “Power of “D” delivers ultimate performance.
Intelligent Dynamic Control for Consistent Clarity at Any Output Level
D-CONTOUR is an intelligent multi-band compressor that gives you powerful and consistent sound throughout all output levels. By constantly monitoring the output of multiple frequency bands and calculating the optimum EQ adjustments for each, even the maximum sound output maintains outstanding clarity and musicality.With the DXR Series, D-CONTOUR provides a more detailed tuning of your sound with two different settings: FOH/ MAIN mode or MONITOR mode. FOH/MAIN mode boosts low-frequency to compensate for low-end that is typically missing when speakers are used in suspended applications or mounted on a speaker stand. MONITOR mode is completely optimized for floor monitor application by intelligently taming down the low-frequency that adds up due to floor reflection, smoothing out a wide range of frequency bands to give you stunning clarity for monitoring your sound. Both of these presets were perfected by performing countless listening tests with skilled sound engineers, giving you a multi-band compressor that performs dynamically, delivering consistent sound with low distortion at any output level.
High-Efficiency 1100W Class-D Amplifiers
- All-New Compact, High-Power DXR Amp ModulesAll DXR Series loudspeakers are equipped with highly efficient Class-D amplifiers that were optimally designed to match the DXR's HF and LF transducers. These high-performance amplifiers deliver the highest sound output in their class with 1100W of power, producing an impressive SPL up to 133dB. They also provide very fast attack and superior transient response, which greatly contribute to these speakers' incredible audio performance.- Universal Switching-Mode Power SupplyThe DXR Series employs an all-new, high-efficiency switching-mode power supply for its outstanding performance. The power supply is also suitable for use worldwide with its multi-voltage design.
Superior Components. Unequaled Performance.
- Custom-Designed DXR TransducersAll DXR Series transducers were meticulously selected and thoroughly customized to deliver ultimate performance. The detailed characteristics and behaviour of each transducer was fully analyzed and evaluated with sophisticated computer simulations in order to help realize their full performance potential. The high power output woofers deliver very low distortion and defined, deep bass, while the 1.4” precision compression drivers produce accurate midrange and high frequencies up to 20 kHz.- DXR Wide Dispersion Constant Directivity HornThe HF transducer is mounted to an all-new 90°x 60°constant directivity horn, designed with the goal of minimizing radiation pattern deterioration in oblique directions as more conventional horns are prone to doing. This can help to achieve a more ideal coverage area without irregularities. With the new wide dispersion constant directivity horn, sound expands in a more rectangular pattern providing 90° horizontal x 60 ° vertical coverage, with wide-frequency sound projected to the edges of the coverage area.
Durable, Compact ABS Enclosures
Full-range models are moulded in rugged, non-resonant ABS enclosures and are designed to dampen down vibrations caused by high output levels, producing less distortion and superior sonic quality. The road-tested enclosures are equipped with heavy-duty steel grilles and ergonomic, gripped aluminum handles that greatly improve durability and portability.
Symmetrical Enclosure Design for Mirror-Mode Floor Monitoring
The DXR12 and DXR15's enclosure design enables mirror-mode monitor placement that creates a symmetrical sound field for the performer with a larger, more defined “sweet spot”. Used in either a balanced dual-mono configuration or a stereo monitor mix setup, mirror-mode floor monitoring can enhance your performance considerably.
Dual-Angle Pole Mount Socket
Depending on the venue, sometimes your mix can fall prey to low ceilings or other room attributes that can impede a clear, even mix and detract from the audiences' listening experience significantly. The DXR's pole mount socket offers two positions—0° and 7°—to direct the acoustic energy away from reflective surfaces and on to your audience where it belongs.
Rigging Points for Standard Eye-Bolts and Optional U-Brackets
DXR Series loudspeakers come equipped with rigging points, allowing for rigged application with standard eyebolts*. When more versatility is required, optional U-brackets allow simple and easy rigging in both horizontal and vertical configurations.*Eyebolts not included
Functional Speaker Cover (Option)
The functional speaker covers that protect your speakers from unfavorable weather conditions during outdoor performances, dusty and dirty warehouse storage, or the rigors of equipment transport on the road.- Trilaminar fabric of durable polyester, with inner PVC coat and cushion inside for impact suppression.- Front mesh allows sound reinforcement with the cover as well as ensures amp cooling.- Rear roof allows easy access to the rear panel with the cover on.- Handle slit allows easy access to the handles for carriage- Inner pocket additional space for carrying cables.*NOTE: The covers do NOT guarantee water-drip protection.
