Buena Park, CA (April 3, 2019)—Yamaha has unveiled its new DXRmkII series of powered loudspeakers. Set to ship this summer, the DXR15mkII, DXR12mkII, DXR10mkII and DXR8mkII build on the legacy of the company’s DXR series, aiming to improve performance while reducing weight.
Created in conjunction with the loudspeaker engineering team at Nexo, the DXRmkII models reportedly reach a higher SPL than the previous series, due to a larger, 1.75″ voice coil HF compression driver and amp tuning tackled by the Nexo team.
“We worked with Nexo on the original generation of DXR speakers and they were very well received. Their expertise in transducer design, along with the DSP improvements from Yamaha, have yielded powered loudspeakers with even more impressive performance and greater portability,” said Nithin Cherian, product marketing manager, Yamaha Pro Audio.
All models feature proprietary Yamaha FIR-X tuning using linear phase FIR filters for the crossover All models also feature D-Contour dynamic multi-band processing, providing tuning of sound with two settings—FOH/Main or Monitor mode—set to match any particular application. The DSP processing incorporated by Yamaha extends beyond sonic control as well, offering protection functions to ensure all the vital components perform at their maximum potential even after extended durations of usage.
Non-resonant ABS enclosures and a portable, lightweight construction allow for the systems to be used in various applications, from front-of-house sound and floor monitoring, to simple amplification and installed environments. For rigged applications, DXRmkII series loudspeakers come equipped with rigging points compatible with standard eyebolts, while optional U-brackets are available for various horizontal and vertical applications.
The DXRmkII also features a dual-angle pole mount socket to direct audio output away from reflective surfaces and onto the audience, as well as a 3-channel onboard mixer, flexible IN/OUT connectivity and linking capability allowing it to comprise a full sound reinforcement system.
