From Our Research Team:
Club V - The Evolution Of Sound Reinforcement!Gigging bands, mobile DJs and houses of worship have helped make the first four generations of Yamaha Club Series Speakers incredibly popular. The refinements of generation V continue this success story: larger enclosures for improved low-frequency performance, improved drivers for higher power handling, redesigned crossovers, stronger grilles, and dual Speakon and 1/4" connectors.
These cabinets are constructed of high quality particleboard, chosen for its high strength and elasticity, consistent void free makeup and light weight. Another great benefit of this material is its environmental friendliness. Made from southern yellow pine, this material is both abundant and quickly renewable. Accurate CNC routing machines are used to cut every part, assuring consistency with tolerances of one ten thousandth of an inch. Skilled technicians assemble each cabinet by hand, rejecting any defects. Whether covered in durable carpet or the elastomeric spray coating, heavy steel handles and sturdy pole sockets make moving and positioning easy.
The drivers, or speakers in these cabinets, are custom made by Eminence Speaker Corporation to Yamaha's exacting tolerances. Woofers share design features like high strength curvilinear cones and Dupont Kapton voice coil formers. Oxygen-free copper voice coils and oversize strontium ferrite magnets are also used to provide high power handling and long life. The 15" and 18" drivers use cast aluminum frames to support the massive magnet structure eliminate flex and help dissipate heat. The compression driver that generates the high frequency sound uses a pure titanium diaphragm. This 2" dome is one of the largest in its class, allowing for very high output and low distortion, without the aid of cooling fluids. It's mated to a 90 degrees x 40 degrees custom designed CD (constant directivity) horn with excellent dispersion and response.

Make the staff complain
by joel truher from palo alto, CASetting up and tuning for a 200-person dinner/dance event, running music through this thing, not played loud at all, the business office staff came out of their office, down the hall, to complain that... read more [+] the bass was annoying them. You can EQ this box to just about subsonic, it's terrific. Played loud later in the evening, driven with just about 500 watts, I couldn't hear any distortion at all, and the crowd loved it. It could have handled two times the power. It easily filled the medium-sized room (70 x 70 x 20 feet) by itself; a second sub would have been nice, but not really necessary. You'd want two (or four) for a larger venue. This sub is a great value, sounds good, and seems indestructible.
