Buena Park, CA (June 20, 2019)—Yamaha has launched the StagePAS 1K portable PA system.
An update to earlier versions, the StagePAS 1K is driven by a high-frequency array speaker packed with 10 small-diameter 1.5″ drivers. The system features a 1000W Class-D amplifier, an upgrade in power from its predecessors, the StagePAS 600BT and StagePAS 400BT.
A 12″ subwoofer was developed to simultaneously house the sizable speaker and improve portability via a streamlined construction and reduced weight. Yamaha added the company’s Twisted Flare Port technology to the subwoofer in an effort to reduce wind noise in the bass reflex port. The array speaker is affixed to the subwoofer cabinet, requiring no cables or speaker stands.
The free StagePAS Editor iOS/Android app allows users to operate their remote parameter adjustments of volume and EQ. Additionally, to enable a more efficient workflow, settings may be saved and recalled for future sessions.
The 5-channel digital mixer, located in the back of the subwoofer, features three channels of mono microphone/line inputs and stereo inputs, with two of the mono input channels fitted with Hi-Z connectivity for direct input of acoustic-electric guitars and other instruments.
The mixer supports 1/8″ mini jacks, playback with Bluetooth devices, as well as a range of input sources from instruments to CD players, PCs and smartphones. The mixer also comes equipped with sound engineering tools, including 1-Knob EQ that handles multi-band processing simultaneously, SPX digital reverb and an output Mode feature to adjust optimized compression settings to suit various applications, such as Speech or Music.
The system also includes a carrying case to protect the speaker during transportation and storage, along with an optional DL-SP1K dolly.
