Yamaha DXR8 MKII Powered Speaker
Louder, Lighter, Legendary
Since its inception, the DXR Series has long signified a confluence of raw power and technological innovation that reliably harnesses and delivers impressively high output with superior quality and clarity. The DXR mkII Series powered loudspeakers are the newly upgraded models of the series that add even more SPL and feature a larger, yet much lighter 1.75” Neodymium HF compression driver for extremely clear voice reproduction and musicality. Performance runs in the family, DXR mkII Series loudspeakers improve superb high-definition sound and class-leading sound pressure levels of maximum 134dB SPL - yet in a more compact and extremely functional design that provides a level of versatility unmatched by any speaker in its class today. The DXR mkII Series is comprised of four full-range models perfectly suited for front-of-house sound, monitors, simple amplification, rigged applications and more. Combining the series with our DXS subwoofers will further elevate your system's performance, giving you versatile control of its thunderous bottom end. With the perfect balance of raw power and innovative speaker technologies, you can depend on DXR mkII Series speakers to deliver the full power of your performance to every member of your audience.
Yamaha ingenuity and NEXO expertise combine for a new lineup of DXRs
Once again our team worked in tight collaboration with touring loudspeaker specialists NEXO, adding crucial insight and expertise that led to design improvements based on the ever-evolving demands of sound reinforcement professionals. Whether for fixed applications or mobile live performances - whatever direction you want to take your sound - the DXR Series mkII is up to the task, combining raw power with our own proprietary advanced DSP functions for all the reliability and outstanding clarity you’ve come to expect from the DXR Series… only MORE.
Less Weight, More Power
Custom-Designed Transducers improved : All DXR mkII Series transducers were meticulously selected and thoroughly customized to deliver ultimate performance. The high power output woofers deliver very low distortion and defined, deep bass, while the newly equipped larger, yet much ligher 1.75” Neodymium precision HF compression drivers produce accurate midrange and high frequencies up to 20 kHz with less weight.
Wide Dispersion Constant Directivity Horn: The larger HF transducer is mounted to an all-new 90° x 60° constant directivity horn, designed with the goal of minimizing radiation pattern deterioration in oblique directions as more conventional horns are prone to doing. This can help to achieve a more ideal coverage area without irregularities. With the new wide dispersion constant directivity horn, sound expands in a more rectangular pattern providing 90° horizontal x 60 ° vertical coverage, with wide-frequency sound projected to the edges of the coverage area.
The Power of "D"
Our development team took full advantage of a number of advanced digital technologies, both new and refined, based on Yamaha's extensive experience accumulated over many long years of developing professional audio equipment. Everything from the detailed management of crossover, EQ and time alignment to the limiter settings, protection functions and precise dynamic control of the sound, was subjected to endless simulation, in-house and field testing to ensure that these speakers produce the highest level of sound quality at the highest output levels possible. Combined with Yamaha’s advanced analog signal processing and acoustic technologies, the “Power of “D” delivers ultimate performance.
Intelligent Dynamic Control for Consistent Clarity at Any Output Level
D-CONTOUR is an intelligent multi-band compressor that gives you powerful and consistent sound throughout all output levels. By constantly monitoring the output of multiple frequency bands and calculating the optimum EQ adjustments for each, even the maximum sound output maintains outstanding clarity and musicality. With the DXR mkII Series, D-CONTOUR provides a more detailed tuning of your sound with two different settings: FOH/ MAIN mode or MONITOR mode. FOH/MAIN mode boosts low-frequency to compensate for low-end that is typically missing when speakers are used in suspended applications or mounted on a speaker stand. MONITOR mode is completely optimized for floor monitor application by intelligently taming down the low-frequency that adds up due to floor reflection, smoothing out a wide range of frequency bands to give you stunning clarity for monitoring your sound. Both of these presets were perfected by performing countless listening tests with skilled sound engineers, giving you a multi-band compressor that performs dynamically, delivering consistent sound with low distortion at any output level.
High-Efficiency 1100W Class-D Amplifiers
All-New Compact, High-Power DXR mkII Amp Modules: All DXR mkII Series loudspeakers are equipped with highly efficient Class-D amplifiers that were optimally designed to match the DXRmkII's HF and LF transducers. These high-performance amplifiers deliver the highest sound output in their class with 1100W of power, producing an impressive SPL up to 134dB. They also provide very fast attack and superior transient response, which greatly contribute to these speakers' incredible audio performance.
Universal Switching-Mode Power Supply: The DXR mkII Series employs high-efficiency switching-mode power supply for its outstanding performance. The power supply is also suitable for use worldwide with its multi-voltage design.
Durable, Compact ABS Enclosures
DXR mkII Series is moulded in rugged, non-resonant ABS enclosures and are designed to dampen down vibrations caused by high output levels, producing less distortion and superior sonic quality. The road-tested enclosures are equipped with heavy-duty steel grilles and ergonomic, gripped aluminum handles that greatly improve durability and portability.
Symmetrical Enclosure Design for Mirror-Mode Floor Monitoring
The DXR15mkII and DXR12mkII's enclosure design enables mirror-mode monitor placement that creates a symmetrical sound field for the performer with a larger, more defined “sweet spot”. Used in either a balanced dual-mono configuration or a stereo monitor mix setup, mirror-mode floor monitoring can enhance your performance considerably.
Dual-Angle Pole Mount Socket
Depending on the venue, sometimes your mix can fall prey to low ceilings or other room attributes that can impede a clear, even mix and detract from the audiences' listening experience significantly. The DXR mkII's pole mount socket offers two positions - 0° and 7° - to direct the acoustic energy away from reflective surfaces and on to your audience where it belongs.
Rigging Points for Standard Eye-Bolts and Optional U-Brackets
DXR mkII Series loudspeakers come equipped with rigging points, allowing for rigged application with standard eyebolts*. When more versatility is required, optional U-brackets allow simple and easy rigging in both horizontal and vertical configurations.
