High-quality audio tends to separate the good gigs from the great. With Yamaha's superb variety of speakers, you’re not just guaranteed elite sound quality, but also a host of intuitive features designed to make life (and live sound) easier.

DZR Series

The DZR series is Yamaha's flagship range of powered loudspeakers. Here you'll find Yamaha's onboard DSP with intelligent adaptive EQ, giving you pro audio that adapts to your sound.

Yamaha DZR Active Speakers

Each speaker has an integrated Class-D amplifier for 2000W of clean, efficient power. With your choice of two-way or three-way cabinets, this range is ideal for almost any occassion.

Advanced FIR-X tuning ensures exceptional clarity and sound imaging. This is achieved with linear phase FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters for the crossover network and correct EQ.


Easy adjustments - intelligent adaptations

Yamaha DZR

Intelligent automatic EQ adjustments are integrated across the entire DZR Series. 96kHz DSP processors produce consistent high-resolution sound and ultra low-latency performance.

Onboard LCD screens allow you to navigate through sound presets, PEQ adjustments, delay, and routing options.

For sound that adapts to you however, it's the D-CONTOUR Multi-Band Compressor that is the star of the show. This measures the output of each of your frequency bands, then automatically adjusts to the optimum EQ adjustment settings, ensuring pristinely clear, balanced audio at any volume. D-COUNTOUR can also help you if you're holding a garden party and want to reduce the mid-response or remove boominess to keep the neighbours happy.

D-CONTOUR also provides modes for FOH/MAIN or MONITOR, letting you adapt each speaker to any stage use you require.


Any occassion

Yamaha DZR

Due to the high level of adaptability, the DZR series is perfect for a range of applications.

They are remarkably easy to install in a variety of locations thanks to the rotatable horn that allows for both vertical or horizontal mounting capabilities. This allows the speaker to instantly adapt to different venue settings and acoustic dimensions.

Plus, with the two FOH/MONITOR DSP modes, you can get the ideal bass response for whichever mounting you choose.

Choose between 2-way or 3-way setups, and get the perfect speaker for your needs. Look for the Dante variants giving smart integration with Yamaha consoles and other Dante devices.

DXS Subwoofers - expand your range

Adding subwoofers to your setup is an easy way of providing a huge lift to your sound.

Most full-range speakers simply cannot access the lowest bass frequencies that subwoofers can. It's the low range that adds resonant depth to your audio and bass you can feel.

Yamaha’s subs were designed to optimise projection of these bass frequencies to always deliver outstanding low-end.

Integrating these subs into your setup couldn’t be easier. Crossover switching allows you to match DXS subwoofers with any of Yamaha's full range powered speakers. Simply select the cutoff frequency that is best suited to the models.

Yamaha DXS15XLF

Yamaha DXS15XLF

The DXS Series is a great choice for those that value powerful bass. Built-in D-XSUB processing allows the Yamaha DXS15XLF to extend the frequency response even lower to add even more thunderous bass all the way down to 40Hz.

Coupled with state-of-the-art DSP, this allows the sub to produce clear, powerful and distortion-free bass. The durable Polyurea exterior coating is extremely damage resistant, providing optimum protection to ensure durability- keeping your bass sounding fat for longer.

Yamaha DXS18XLF

Yamaha DXS18XLF

Building on this performance with its slightly bigger speaker, the Yamaha DXS18XLF also features a cardioid mode which allows you to direct your low-end frequencies to your audience.

By decreasing stage-side sound pressure while increasing the bottom-end output directed forwards, this provides a cleaner stage monitoring environment whilst giving the audience that much needed bass experience. Perfect for the outdoors, this minimises sound lost so your audience can hear everything in detail.
