Combining the series with our DXS subwoofers will further elevate your system’s performance. It gives you versatile control of its thunderous bottom end. Specifically, with the perfect balance of raw power and innovative speaker technologies, you can depend on DXR MKII Series speakers. They deliver the full power of your performance to every member of your audience.

Yamaha Ingenuity and NEXO Expertise Combine for a New Lineup of DXRs

Yamaha worked in tight collaboration with touring loudspeaker specialists NEXO, adding crucial insight and expertise that led to design improvements based on the ever-evolving demands of sound reinforcement professionals.

Whether for fixed applications or mobile live performances – whatever direction you want to take your sound – the DXR12MKII is up to the task, combining raw power with our own proprietary advanced DSP functions for all the reliability and outstanding clarity you’ve come to expect from the DXR Series… only MORE.

Custom-Designed Transducers Improved

All DXR MKII Series transducers deliver ultimate performance. The high power output woofers deliver very low distortion and defined, deep bass, while the newly equipped larger, yet much ligher 1.75” Neodymium precision HF compression drivers produce accurate midrange and high frequencies up to 20 kHz with less weight.

Wide Dispersion Constant Directivity Horn

The larger HF transducer is mounted to an all-new 90° x 60° constant directivity horn. It minimises the radiation pattern deterioration in oblique directions as more conventional horns are prone to doing. This can help to achieve a more ideal coverage area without irregularities.

With the new wide dispersion constant directivity horn, sound expands in a more rectangular pattern providing 90° horizontal x 60 ° vertical coverage, with wide-frequency sound projected to the edges of the coverage area.

The Power of “D” – DXR12MKII

Yamaha’s development team took full advantage of a number of advanced digital technologies, both new and refined, based on Yamaha’s extensive experience accumulated over many long years of developing professional audio equipment.

Everything from the detailed management of crossover, EQ and time alignment to the limiter settings, protection functions and precise dynamic control of the sound, was subjected to endless simulation. in-house and field testing to ensure that these speakers produce the highest level of sound quality at the highest output levels possible.

Ultra-Precise 48Bit DSP Processing for High-Definition Sound

All full-range models feature Yamaha’s proprietary FIR-X tuning™ utilizing linear phase FIR* filters for the crossover network. FIR-X™ tuning simultaneously optimises frequency and phase response while adjusting the time alignment between the HF and LF transducers. This creates a very smooth response around the crossover point, providing much better clarity and imaging than what is possible with typical crossovers.

All signals are precisely processed by a 48bit (76bit accumulator) high-performance processor for high-definition sound quality. Also, all full-range models employ high-precision 24bit discrete A/D and D/A converters with superior S/N ratio and dynamic range.

Intelligent Dynamic Control for Consistent Clarity at Any Output Level

D-CONTOUR is an intelligent multi-band compressor that gives you powerful and consistent sound throughout all output levels. By constantly monitoring the output of multiple frequency bands and calculating the optimum EQ adjustments for each, even the maximum sound output maintains outstanding clarity and musicality.

With the DXR MKII Series, D-CONTOUR provides a more detailed tuning of your sound with two different settings: FOH/ MAIN mode or MONITOR mode. FOH/MAIN mode boosts low-frequency to compensate for low-end that is typically missing when speakers are used in suspended applications or mounted on a speaker stand.

DXR’s MONITOR mode is completely optimised for floor monitor applications. It does so by intelligently taming down the low frequency that adds up due to floor reflection. Therefore, smoothing out a wide range of frequency bands to give you stunning clarity for monitoring your sound.

Extensive DSP Protection Functions for Maximum Output – Yamaha DXR12MKII

During the development of the DZR, DXR MKII, DBR and DXS series, Yamaha measured and tested the durability of each transducer and the overall amp output through countless indoor and outdoor listening tests. Based on the test results, Yamaha was able to set the optimal limiter point for each model using precise DSP control.

In addition to the optimal limiting, Yamaha speakers employ many of the same protection functions used in Yamahas top-class TXn Series professional power amplifiers. A microprocessor and high-power DSP monitor the status of the power supply, power amplifiers, transducers and ongoing signals to protect all aspects of each component. As a result, these speakers can perform to their full potential while ensuring reliable operation in even the most severe conditions.

Switchable White Front LED

Additionally, each of the full-range models and DXS speakers has a white LED behind the front grille. It illuminates when powered and varies in brightness depending on the amount of system limiting.

High-Efficiency 1100W Class-D Amplifiers

DXRMKII uses highly efficient Class-D amplifiers. These high-performance amplifiers deliver the highest sound output in their class. It does so with 1100W of power, producing an impressive SPL up to 134dB. They also provide very fast attack and superior transient response, which greatly contribute to these speakers’ incredible audio performance.

Universal Switching-Mode Power Supply

The DXR MKII Series employs high-efficiency switching-mode power supply for its outstanding performance. The power supply is also suitable for use worldwide with its multi-voltage design.

DXR12MKII’s Intelligent Onboard 3-Channel Mixer

The DXR MKII Series features a flexible onboard mixer with a variety of inputs. This makes it ideal for simple vocal/ instrument amplification. With its flexible IN/OUT, the DXR MKII Series can comprise a full sound reinforcement system. It can seamlessly integrate into a setup utilizing DZR or DXS Series speakers.

Versatile Mic and Line Level Input Capability

The DXR MKII onboard mixer can handle up to three simultaneous inputs. It accepts both Mic and Line level input, giving you the flexibility to connect to a variety of sources. Connect from microphones to line-level instruments and portable audio devices. When in MIC position, a HPF is automatically activated to roll off unwanted low frequency.

Yamaha DXR12MKII’S Flexible HPF Control

All DXR MKII loudspeakers feature flexible HPF control to perfectly match with DXS subwoofers. You can choose either 100Hz or 120Hz depending on which subwoofer you are using in combination with the DXR MKII. DXS Series subwoofers feature flexible LPF settings allowing you to find the optimal HPF/LPF balance for your sound.

Smart Mixing / Linking Function

Each channel has an individual volume control, letting you mix three discrete audio sources. THRU out passes the input signal from Channel 1 and LINK OUT sends mixed signal from all channels. This is ideal for daisy-chaining or routing the signal to another destination. LINK OUT is very useful for configuring a compact SR system with another DXR. LINK MODE allows you to easily switch between stereo or dual-mono configurations.

DXR12MKII Durable, Compact ABS Enclosures

DXR MKII Series speakers are moulded in rugged, non-resonant ABS enclosures. Specifically, they dampen down vibrations caused by high output levels, producing less distortion and superior sonic quality. The road-tested enclosures are equipped with heavy-duty steel grilles and ergonomic, gripped aluminium handles that greatly improve durability and portability.

Symmetrical Enclosure Design for Mirror-Mode Floor Monitoring

The DXR15MKII and DXR12MKII’s enclosure design enables mirror-mode monitor placement. This creates a symmetrical sound field for the performer with a larger, more defined “sweet spot”. Mirror-mode floor monitoring can enhance your performance considerably. Use it in either a balanced dual-mono configuration or a stereo monitor mix setup.

Dual-Angle Pole Mount Socket

Depending on the venue, sometimes your mix can fall short to low ceilings or other room attributes. This can impede a clear, even mix and detract from the audience’s listening experience significantly. The DXR MKII’s pole mount socket offers two positions – 0° and 7°. This helps to direct the acoustic energy away from reflective surfaces and onto your audience where it belongs.

Rigging Points for Standard Eye-Bolts and Optional U-Brackets

DXR MKII Series loudspeakers come equipped with rigging points, allowing for rigged application with standard eyebolts. For more versatility, use optional U-brackets to allow simple and easy rigging in both horizontal and vertical configurations.
