    Excellent Speaker

    DXR8 was exactly what I wanted. Excellent sound & quality, plus light weight.

    These speakers are awesome, I have these set at the zero setting (for gain) and it's enough raise. the roof. I thought the M-Audio 10's were great, there is no comparison, These difinitly blew me away. Good job Dennis, You were right, Much Power to spare with clarity.

    Yamaha dxr8

    Hello, I'v owned a pair of these speakers for 3 weeks now. I bought them to have a back system for my other B-52 matrix 1000vs's I bright on every gig or show. When I first started to hook up & test these dxr8's I found a few minor problems. First I hooked it though my BBE 482i audio out (1/4 inch) to (1/4) on the back of the dxr's. Then I ran a xlr to the other dxr'8 to make the stereo conection. I played around with the (stereo/mono) button & it works fine, that proves I had it hooked right.. With this set up I found it to be just not sounding good..to be more technical, the audio was uncompressed sounding & in the background noise there was a minor to mod- hummmm...sound..So long sorry short I ended up with this setup that works fine. My Dj rig runs though the BBE 482i (1/4-xlr) this time. Also this time I run though the bbe to a 18" powered subwoofer that has many inputs/outputs ect.. Then I run an xlr cable to go from the sub to the Satellite speakers in this case the Yamaha dxr8's using the (sub-audio out full range/to the xlr input on the dxr's). Example (from sub-left channel out to left dxr speaker, right channel out to the right dxr speaker).
    After that, I found that buzzing-humming sound 95% decreased when I turn the dxr8,s down to (1/4 level on the knob) on both speakers have to be set evenly to have proper level.
    The only other thing is that when using the dxr8's by them selfs (no sub or subs) & there is a setting that says "off/100hz/120hz, it's better sound havng this setting "OFF" when alone! When it is set to "off" the sound quality is really good but have caution because, the 8" size speaker tops out pretty Easley & you don't won't that! When I have it hooked to the sub speaker, I turn that setting (on dxr8's) to "100/120Hz", then your ready to rock! There are many ways these speakers can be set up so remember take your time & practice makes perfecto!
