Product Code : DXR12

The Yamaha DXR12 is a versatile powered PA speaker in Yamaha's DXR line, with a 12-inch low frequency transducer and a 1.4-inch throat compression driver. Both speaker drivers are specially designed by Yamaha and utilize ferrite magnets. The DXR12 delivers 1100 watts of output power, with a frequency of 52Hz - 20kHz. The DXR12 has a little more bass definition than the smaller DXR10 and is more suitable as front-of-house main. They also make killer onstage monitors!

Versatile I/O For Solo Use Or In Series

Every Yamaha DXR powered speaker has 1 x Mic/Line balanced XLR input with a 10 dB pad. There is also 1 x XLR Thru jack. The 2 x stereo 1/4-inch line level jacks have their own 10 dB pad. After these, there is a 3rd input section that has stereo RCA jacks inputs with yet one more 10 dB pad. There is also a Link Out male XLR port that can be switched between Mono and Stereo modes.

FIR-X Tuning Keeps Speakers Sounding Great

All DXR powered speakers are preloaded with Yamaha's unique FIR-X tuning. This uses linear phase FIR filters for the crossover network. FIR-X tuning simultaneously optimizes frequency and phase response, and monitors time alignment between the two transducers. This was Yamaha's solution for obtaining maximally clear response around the crossover point, providing what many feel to be a better clarity and sound imaging than what other speakers can manage. A 48bit high-performance processor onboard allows the DXRs to perform their monitoring continuously and invisibly. All DXRs use high-precision 24-bit A/D and D/A converters.

Handy D-CONTOUR Feature for Gigging Musicians

A switch on the rear panel allows you to activate the D-CONTOUR feature on the DXRs. This is an active multi-band compressor that helps yield even more powerful and consistent sound at any dynamic level. It works by continually monitoring the output of multiple frequency bands, and calculating the optimum adjustments to be made to each range. The D-CONTOUR comes with two handy presets that help you get a good tone faster: the FOH/ MAIN mode and the MONITOR mode. FOH/MAIN mode boosts low frequencies to help compensate for low end that is lacking when you are using a full-range setup without a separate subwoofer. MONITOR mode is an optimized preset for floor monitor application, that pulls back on the low-frequencies that create boxy sound reflections.

Ruggedly Built and Ready for Any Situation

The DXR powered speakers are made from rugged, non-resonant ABS enclosures with no audible vibrations even at the highest output levels. They are fit with heavy-duty steel grilles and ergonomic aluminum handles. The DXR's pole mount socket offers a second mounting position with a 7-degree downward tilt, allowing you to angle the speakers down from the stage toward the audience, rather than over their heads.
