InfoComm 2012: Yamaha to debut DXR loudspeaker series

Yamaha’s DXR loudspeaker and DXR sub woofer are set to make their InfoComm debut this week, with the company showcasing its products at booth C10340.

Made up of four full-range models – the Yamaha DXR8, DXR10, DXR12 and DXR15 are designed to deliver optimum sound pressure levels and high-definition sound in a compact design.

The DXR Series is intended for use across a multitude of applications, with 1100W Class-D amplifiers and Yamaha-mastered DSP, combined with an on-board mixer with IN/OUT connectivity.

It also features a three-channel signal input on the speaker’s back panel, enabling end users to mix their own settings, as well as a Mixing/Link function for daisy-chaining additional powered speakers. Inputs include XLR, ¼” TRS, and RCA jacks, with signals from the inputs mixed inside the DXR unit. Each channel has its own level control and the XLR input can accept MIC/LINE sources. Each cabinet features a built-in, selectable-frequency High Pass Filter (HPF) for use with a subwoofer.

Furthermore, the DXR speakers are designed to provide DSP-assisted EQ (Dynamic COUNTOUR), tailoring the frequency response when used as floor monitors or mains. Proprietary FIR-X filtering is aimed at ensuring that the DXR cabinets perform under all circumstances, while FIR-X tuning technology aims to achieve optimised accuracy and response. All models incorporate integrated rigging points for installation using standard rigging eyebolts, while optional U-brackets are also available. All models feature built-in, dual-angle pole mount sockets for vertical or angled applications.

Joining the new DXR series are the DXS12 and DXS15 active subwoofers. D-XSUB technology dynamically controls the low frequency range, while BOOST mode is designed to provide greater punch in overall sound. The new sub’s XTENDED LF mode is built to boost the bottom end of the low frequency range.
