The Yamaha DXR8 is a compact active PA speaker system, and is part of the DXR loudspeaker series. Designed in collaboration with NEXO - world leaders in touring-grade sound reinforcement systems -, the DXR series draws on decades of design and manufacturing experience.
The lightweight and compact cabinet is home to an 8-inch low-frequency driver, and 1.4-inch high-frequency driver. Each driver is powered by an individual Class-D amplifier, which enables the DXR8 to deliver 1100W of dynamic power and 700W of continuous power with absolute clarity. High-precision digital signal processing (DSP) is overseen by the same class-leading circuitry as in Yamaha's popular DSR series speakers. Intelligent 48-bit precision DSP is controlled by sophisticated "C-Contour" multi-band dynamic processing, as well as FIR-X digital crossover filtering that optimises both the power output and audio quality of the amplifier and the speaker components.
As the DXR8 handles such high-power loads, Yamaha have built in safeguards to prevent signal overload and provide protection to the transducers, power amplifiers and power supplies. The front-mounted LED provides real-time visual feedback so that you can readily see when the Limiter is in use. The newly designed waveguide horn ensures that sound is projected across wide frequency range with a smooth 90-degree horizontal range and 60-degree vertical coverage.
There are three different input options available: XLR, Phone jacks or RCA inputs - each with an individual level control. At the touch of a button you can access the highly intuitive D-Contour control, which actively monitors a wide-range of frequencies at the same time to ensure that the EQ settings are updated in real-time based on the output signal, to guarantee the highest sound pressure level whilst maintaining optimum audio quality and signal integrity.
The Yamaha DXR8 also features a convenient integrated 3-channel mixer and advanced smart-linking function with stereo/mono option. Front and rear pole mounting is available as well rigging points for flying or using the optional U-brackets (sold separately). All DXR systems can be fully expanded by adding DXS subwoofers. The unique Link-Out system allows you to readily set whether you want to use the speaker in stereo or mono mode, depending on your setup.
The Yamaha DXR8 active loudspeaker is perfect if you're looking for an expandable, simple-to-use and incredibly powerful partner for providing that much needed boost when performing live.
