Yamaha's Next-Gen Powered Subwoofer

You'll be amazed at the rock-solid bass and consistent performance you get from Yamaha's DXS12 powered subwoofer, part of their new DXR/DXS line of Class D-powered PA speakers. Housed in a durable wooden enclosure, the 12" DXS12 subwoofer represents Yamaha's latest sound reinforcement technology. The DXS12 subwoofer packs maximum performance into an efficient design that's perfect for the gigging musician, school sound systems, and houses of worship. And thanks to the built-in D-XSUB processing, the DXS12 delivers the kind incredibly deep bass you'd expect from a much larger subwoofer. Whether you're playing pre-recorded music or performing for a crowd, you'll love the rich low end the Yamaha DXS12 powered subwoofer adds to your sound system.

Yamaha DXS12 Powered Subwoofer at a Glance:
  • High-power, Class D amplifier
  • Stellar sound quality
  • Easy to integrate
High-power, Class D amplifier

The Yamaha DXS12 employs a 600W RMS Class D amplifier to serve up rich, solid bass reinforcement. The ample wattage doesn't just let the DXS12 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 DXS12'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 DXS12 powered subwoofer. For example, Yamaha's D-XSUB technology lets you extend the frequency response of the DXS12 for when you really need maximum bass impact, incredibly useful in larger rooms. Also, the acoustically-optimized wooden enclosure is designed to resist distortion at high output levels, greatly enhancing sound quality even at extreme levels.

Easy to integrate

It's easy to add the DXS12 powered subwoofer to your DRX loudspeaker system, or any other powered system for that matter. Dual XLR inputs let you connect to your mixer, crossover system, or main speaker throughputs, and parallel XLR outputs make it easy to add additional DXS subwoofers for even more ground-shaking bass reinforcement.

Yamaha DXS12 Powered Subwoofer Features:
  • Portable 12" subwoofer with 600-watt RMS power amp
  • 12" long-throw speaker with a 2.5" voice coil for superb bass response
  • 47Hz-160Hz frequency range is ideal for small- to medium-sized rooms
  • Built-in D-XSUB processing allows you to extend the frequency response even lower
  • Wooden cabinet is durable and acoustically optimized for maximum sound quality
Yamaha's DXS12 powered subwoofer packs serious low-frequency prowess!

My Yamaha set.

I am really amazed by the quality of the sound. I am not a pro; My brother in law helped me in the shopping process, I have been very happy with my Yamaha set. Since i bought this set i have doing free advertisement for Yamaha and Sweetwater.

Yamaha DXS12 is a Great Sub

I had been contemplating buying this sub for months. I was thinking do I really need/want a $700 sub??? After much thought I decided I didn't want a cheap sub and be disappointed. I ordered it after 5p on a Wed. and had it by 2p the next day (free shipping too). I connected this sub to my Yamaha Stagepas 600 and put on one of my favorite song (Shine on Crazy Diamonds Part 1) and I was totally blown away. The punch, power, clarity, balance with my speakers was amazing. It was shaking stuff on the shelves and rattling the windows. This sub is worth the money spent. I will never say, "man I wish I bought a better sub". This one is it,.... you need to get it!!! Thanks for the great service Patrick Weaver, you always take care of me well, and remember me every call too. Sweetwater is the Best Musical Instrument Vendor out there.

Best Buy

Time and time again I have been impressed by this little sub. I have friends using 18's with sub envy. It thumps the perfect amount, fits neatly under the table and takes up a small footprint in the van. I have one but have contemplated getting two for bigger gigs. I use 10" yamaha powered tops with this and it is such a clear crips balanced sound. You won't be sorry.

Yamaha DXS12

This SW is unbelievable for its sound quality, weight, size and output. If you research and compare the specs on this particular sub against any other in this configuration or even its bigger brother the DXS15, you will quickly see why five stars are well deserved. Sweetwater's Theron Jones, my sales engineer has been guiding my equipment purchases for the past few years and once again provided all that I needed to make the right choice for my music requirements.

DXS Sub Review

As a musician constantly performs and plays on a regular basis, here's my thoughts. This is the most amazing powered sub I have ever heard hands down. I had to keep telling myself this is a 12" sub, because it sure out performs most 15" and 18" subs I've heard. Yamaha hit a grand slam with the DXR/DXS series of powered speakers. Please take it from me, don't waste your money buying cheap powered speakers. This amazing line of powered speakers us all you need. With the DXR 8", 10", 12", 15", and the DXS 12" and 15", who needs anything else?
