This compact, lightweight speaker pair is the perfect solution for numerous applications equipped with a 10" LF driver and a 1" HF driver. It is excellent for installment applications, as its cabinet material is lightweight and durable, and its grill will protect the speakers from the hazards of venue life. It is great for mobile applications as well, again because of its light weight and rugged construction. This item is a pair of CBR10s, ideal passive speakers for common small club audience sizes.
The CBR Series was developed by adopting the extensive knowledge of speaker design and acoustic technologies that Yamaha has accrued over a long and storied history of making speakers of every kind. Combining a meticulous materials selection process, thorough customization of the audio components, and a fresh, innovative approach to speaker design, the engineering team's primary focus was to deliver high-power, high-definition sound in a highly portable and versatile design that is equally at home in front-of-house, floor monitoring, or rigged configurations.
Custom Designed Transducers and Wide-Dispersion Constant Directivity Horn
CBR Series speakers come equipped with carefully selected and customized transducers that feature a highly responsive woofer and a precise 2.5 compression driver (CBR15) or 2compression driver (CBR10 and CBR12), ensuring consistent high-definition sound with minimal distortion even at high output levels. Additionally, a newly designed wide-dispersion constant directivity horn minimizes the radiation pattern deterioration in oblique directions that more conventional horns are prone to, allowing sound to expand in a more rectangular pattern, evenly dispersing wide-frequency sound to the outer-most edges of the coverage area.
HF Protection and Highly Responsive LF Unit for Reliable Performance at Any Output Level
Have you ever blown your speakers by cranking up the output levels beyond your speakers capabilities? CBR Series speakers employ a protection function that limits excessive input to the HF unit. This valuable protection circuit affords you worry-free operation of your speakers when you need them most. Combined with a highly responsive LF unit, CBR Series speakers reliably deliver clear, precise sound at any output level.
Rugged, Highly Portable Enclosure Design
CBR Series speakers feature a very compact, durable, and lightweight plastic cabinet equipped with newly designed, ergonomic handles that greatly minimize system transport and setup. In addition, all CBR models feature a sleek, steel front grille that seamlessly blends in with installation aesthetics while protecting the vital inner speaker components from environmental hazards.
CBR Series speakers are equipped with one speakON jack and one 1/4" Phone jack that allow for fast and easy connectivity in both personal and professional environments.
Smart Enclosure Design for Floor Monitoring
The CBR Series speakers feature an optimized 50 wedge angle for floor monitoring. In addition, the CBR12 and CBR15's symmetrical shape allows for effortless configuration of a mirror-mode floor monitoring system for a larger and more defined sweet spot.
Rigging Points for Installation Applications
CBR loudspeakers come equipped with M8 rigging points, allowing for rigged applications with optional speaker brackets or standardized eye-bolts

Comments about Yamaha CBR10 10" Speaker Pair:
I use this product in a live keyboard monitoring system playing mostly rock and funk music. By getting these speakers and using a small rack case with a Samson line mixer and an ultra light class D power amp I now have way more inputs, and even the ability to plug in an unpowered monitor line from the main board if needed, and set up for a solo gig without the need for additional sound reinforcement. Previously I used Roland's KC 500, followed by a KC - 350. These speakers sound way better, it's not even close. Not only that, but my setup is true stereo even if the front of the house is mono, and my monitor setup is way easier to move around.
Comments about Yamaha CBR10 10" Speaker Pair:
I use these speakers for multimedia presentations and to DJ where only modest sound (wedding ceremonies, cocktail etc...) Vocals are clear, bass is good considering they are 10's. Better power handling than most passive 10's on the market. Accepts 1/4" and Speakon. Very lightweight and portable. Composite material makes the CBR-10's good for outside use.
I will never take anything away from Yamaha's quality, but I think these speakers are way overpriced. A pair of these costs the same, if not more than comparable pairs of 10" active speakers and even some 12's and 15's. A pair of Carvin PM-10's WITH covers and shipping will save you at least $100. MSRP on this set should be $399. Fortunately, I got a little bit of a discount which eased the pain.
