Buena Park, CA (June 2, 2016)—Yamaha has added three new models to its HS Series of powered studio monitor speakers.
The new bi-amped, 2-way models – HS5I, HS7I and HS8I available in both black and white finishes—can be used in conjunction with three optional bracket types (wall, ceiling and baton) to aid installation.
The HS enclosures are constructed from a dense MDF with a dampened acoustic response and employ a traditional three-way mitered-joint technique that firmly anchors the corners of the enclosure to improve durability and eliminate unwanted resonance. It also features proprietary Yamaha transducers, a 1-inch dome tweeter and a responsive woofer that utilizes large, carefully selected magnets in an effort to produce low distortion sound. The amplifier features a bi-amp design with a separate dedicated amp for both the woofer and the tweeter.
HS Series full-range models feature two response controls with detailed settings that allow them to adapt to the surface acoustics of rooms of varying shape and size; ROOM CONTROL and HIGH TRIM, as well as XLR and TRS phone jack inputs to accommodate balanced and unbalanced sources such as mixers, keyboards and audio interfaces.
As with the original models in the series, the new HS-I models can be used in conjunction with the HS8S, an 8-inch bass-reflex powered subwoofer that delivers low frequencies down to 22Hz.
