A Formidable Floor Monitor

The Yamaha CM12V 12" passive floor monitor is a part of Yamaha's popular Club Series Speakers range. The refinements of generation V continue their 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. The Yamaha CM12V is aesthetically designed to pair with Yamaha's VC Series speaker systems. Offering up a 2-way design - 12" woofer, Horn plus 2" voice coil driver - you'll enjoy reliable stage monitoring with the Yamaha CM12V 12" floor monitor.

Yamaha CM12V Passive Floor Monitor at a Glance:
  • Cabinet construction
  • World-class drivers
  • Crossovers
Cabinet construction

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 (featured on this CM12V), heavy steel handles and sturdy pole sockets make moving and positioning easy.

World-class drivers

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 12" driver uses 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.


Crossover networks that divide the signal going to the woofer and compression driver are constructed with oversized coils, high voltage capacitors, and power resistors designed to provide the best possible sound quality and minimize loss. Overload protection is also included to protect the components.

Awesome Floor Monitors!

I purchased four of the Yamaha CM12Vs to upgrade our floor monitoring system in the music space of our church sanctuary. Crystal clear sound. Nothing but happy vocalists and instrumentalist in all four of our performing music groups.

Man has been great for everyone that plays at church, most of us have a few years on us so hearing might be a challenge sometimes, the CM 12 V has brought that down to not being the issue anymore, great upper sound which has really helped. Thank you Paul and Tina @ sweetwater for being so helpful. Hats off to you both.
