Product Description

Yamaha DXR15MKII Overview

Yamaha DXR15mkII is a 15″ 1100W 2-Way active loudspeaker which provides
clear audio and extremely high output levels in an unobtrusive and
durable design, ideal for live sound applications that require wide
bandwidth audio reproduction. The cabinet has a rugged ABS construction
with a bass-reflex design for enhanced bass performance with reduced
turbulence. The high-power 15″ woofer and 1.75″ compression tweeter
offer high-resolution audio with a wide frequency response and deep
bass. Integrated DSP uses a FIR-X linear phase filter for an
ultra-smooth crossover, while the protection circuits optimize and
protect driver performance.

The speaker has a biamplified Class-D
design that provides a combined peak output power of 1100W for a strong
performance with minimal distortion. The integrated D-contour processor
allows you to use the speaker as a main/FOH speaker or as a stage
monitor. The rear panel has XLR, 1/4″, and RCA inputs, as well as XLR
thru and output connectors for wide compatibility with a variety of
professional sound systems and devices.

The speaker can be placed
on a floor or stage, but also has useful mounting options. A dual 35mm
pole socket allows you to mount the speaker on top of a subwoofer with
horizontal or 7° tilt toward the floor, while M10 fly points allow
suspended installation. An optional U-bracket is available separately
for wall mounting. The Yamaha DXR15mkII ships with a power cord.

Key Features

  • FIR-X tuning
    • Proprietary
      sound-processing technology utilizing a linear-phase FIR filter
      delivers high-quality sound at high resolution with a smooth frequency
      response that is unaffected by phase interference near the crossover
    • D-CONTOUR is a
      multiband compressor that dynamically controls the level of each
      frequency range according to the application and human hearing
