Onboard DSP and Class-D amplification.
The Yamaha DXR15mkII 15” powered speaker combines high-quality sound, onboard amplification and flexibility into a compact cabinet. It’s great for live bands, DJs and other mobile performers who value portability and power. A 15” low-frequency driver produces impressive bass response and detailed mids, while the 1.75” Neodymium HF compression driver delivers extremely clear voice reproduction and musicality.
Performance runs in the family, and the 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 DXR15mkII 1,100W powered speaker is perfectly suited for front-of-house sound, monitor use, simple amplification, rigged applications and more. Thanks to its 15″ woofer, the DXR15mkII active speaker produces the lowest bass frequencies in the DXR mkII lineup.
Yamaha 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 Yamaha’s own proprietary advanced DSP functions for all the reliability and outstanding clarity you’ve come to expect from the DXR Series, only more.
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 lighter 1.75” Neodymium precision HF compression drivers produce accurate midrange and high frequencies up to 20kHz with less weight.
The larger HF transducer is mounted to a redesigned 90°x60° 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.
Yamaha’s 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.
The DXR15mkII 15″ powered speaker features Yamaha's proprietary FIR-X tuning, utilizing linear phase FIR filters for the crossover network. FIR-X tuning simultaneously optimizes frequency and phase response while adjusting the time alignment between the HF and LF transducers. This creates a very smooth response around the crossover point, providing much better clarity and imaging than what is possible with typical crossovers.
All signals are precisely processed by a 48-bit (76-bit accumulator) high-performance processor for high definition sound quality. All full-range models employ high-precision 24-bit discrete A/D and D/A converters with superior S/N ratio and dynamic range.
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.
