The Yamaha DXR12 is an active speaker from the Yamaha DXR speaker range. Using cutting edge technology a DXR speaker applies multiband analysing to the signal in real time to ascertain how best to represent the sound, shifting power to the correct driver and optimising output.
The DXR series are lightweight yet super reliable. So reliable in fact that each speaker comes with a 7 YEAR WARRANTY!
Other Upgrades compared to the DBR series include a higher overall power output of up to 133dB SPL, an intelligent onboard 3 channel mixer and built in collaboration with NEXO technology
Yamaha DXR speakers utilise the latest technology and speaker designs to get that fantastic performance, including
Digital FIR-X tuning™
FIR-X tuning is Yamaha's proprietary linear phase digital crossover technology that delivers sound quality with superb clarity and imaging. FIR filters are usually only found in speakers in higher price brackets (over £1K). The FIR filter handles the common phasing issues which occur around the cross-over point of the speaker helping to achieve the ‘High-definition’ sound with no colouration or fuzzyness
Yamaha D-Contour offers intelligent multi-band dynamic processing which can continuously deliver sound that is natural, clear and powerful - regardless of volume. The technology constantly monitors the output of multiple frequency bands so that the system can sense a change, react accordingly and adjust the EQ and compression so that you're always getting the best performance out of your speakers.
Extensive DSP-controlled protection functions.
To ensure that the speakers have the highest possibly reliability, The DXR Series employs 3-way fail safe protection function that is controlled by DSP and ensures reliable operation of all internal components including transducers, power amplifiers, and power supplies.
Here's what Yamaha say about their Speaker Systems
Ever since we first started developing professional audio equipment in the 1960’s, we've made it our goal to stay at the forefront of the technology curve. Drawing on decades of experience as a true industry innovator, we don't merely utilize cutting -edge technologies- we create them. With the express purpose of making the most powerful and reliable high-resolution speakers possible, we assembled a specialized team of Yamaha's most skilled engineers to examine, and improve on, every detail of loudspeaker design. This passion for innovation served as the impetus for an intensive collaboration with loudspeaker giant NEXO, adding their insight and expertise as an industry leader in touring-grade sound reinforcement to the development of our DSR, DXR and DXS Series speakers.
As a result of working closely with NEXO's engineers at their state-of-the-art facility, our team adopted a new approach to some crucial aspects of these speakers’ design. The detailed analysis of the transducers, thorough testing of the enclosures' acoustic properties and optimized limiter setting all contributed to higher SPL delivered with stunning clarity and an unsurpassed level of reliability. By incorporating touring-grade technology into these speakers, we've succeeded in creating the most powerful and dependable high-performance, active loudspeakers...ever.
