From Our Research Team:
Yamaha's Next-Gen PA SpeakersYou'll be amazed at the sonic clarity and depth you get from Yamaha's DXR12 powered loudspeakers, part of their new DXR/DXS line of Class D-powered PA speakers. Housed in durable, compact ABS enclosures, the 12" DXR12 two-way speakers represent Yamaha's latest sound reinforcement technology. DXR12 speakers pack maximum performance into an efficient design that's perfect for the gigging musician that's on the go. And thanks to the built-in three-channel mixer, the DXR12 is perfect for those times when you need sound reinforcement but don't need an entire PA system. Whether you're playing pre-recorded music or performing for a crowd, you'll love the transparent sound of the Yamaha DXR12 powered loudspeakers.
Yamaha DXR12 Powered Loudspeaker at a Glance:
High-power, Class D amplifier
The Yamaha DXR12 employs a 700W RMS Class D amplifier to serve up vibrant, dynamic sound reinforcement. The DXR12 is bi-amped, with a full 600 watts for the LF driver and 100 watts for the HF driver. The high wattage doesn't just let the DXR12 get loud, it gives it the headroom needed to reproduce the dynamics and nuances in your music. And thanks to the ultra-lightweight Class D amplifier, the DXR12's big sound is still convenient to transport.
Stellar sound quality
Yamaha used a lot of innovative technology to get the maximum sonic quality out of the DXR12 powered loudspeaker. For example, Yamaha's FIR-X tuning technology is constantly optimizing the time alignment between the HF and LF drivers, reducing phase cancellations to greatly enhance bass frequency response as well as stereo imaging. Also, the non-resonant ABS enclosure is designed to resist vibrations at high output levels, greatly reducing distortion for the best sound at extreme levels.
Built-in three-channel mixer
While a pair of DXR12 powered loudspeakers makes a great sound system, especially when paired with a Yamaha DXS subwoofer, what about those situations where you just need a little bit of reinforcement without an entire sound system? Just turn the DXR12 around, and connect up to three microphones or line-level signals for instant amplification. The versatile nature of the DXR12 makes it the ideal loudspeaker for solo musicians, as well as schools and houses of worship that need a flexible sound system for multiple applications.

Better than QSC K12!!
by Eric from GreensboroI used to own a pair of K12's and loved them a lot. One day, my friend was showing off his brand new DXR12's, so I compared my K12's to his DXR12's out of curiosity. !!?? I was really amazed by the so... read more [+]und of DXR12's at high volume!! While the K12's apparently ran out of gas and lacked low end, the DXR12's kept up very well keeping all its clarity and nice low-end. Fantastic sound!! And allot cheaper than K12? No way.

The clarity and deep bass of DXR's were exactly what I was looking for, so I decided to replace my K12's with DXR12's. Best bang for the buck. Well done, Yamaha! close [-]

They fit my needs for volume, clarity, weight and price point. If they hold up as well as my other Yamaha equipment then I'll have to change this rating to 5 stars! My Sales Engineer, Derek , has never steered me wrong. Thanks! close [-]
