Overview

Portable, yet capable of producing an astonishing 131dB SPL, the DXR10 10" Active Speaker's compact, functional design makes it ideal for a wide range of applications, including as a floor monitor or main speaker. Whether comprising a compact SR system or providing simple vocal / instrument amplification, the onboard mixer eliminates the need for an external mixer - without compromising sound quality and power. Its rigid cabinet design reduces distortion and the FIR-X tuning ensures accurate response.

DXR Series Breakdown
Performance runs in the family, and like the acclaimed DSR Series before it, DXR Series loudspeakers offer superb high-definition sound and class-leading sound pressure levels-yet in a more compact and extremely functional design for more diversity. The DXR Series loudspeakers are perfectly suited for front-of-house sound, monitors, simple amplification, rigged applications and more. Combining the series with Yamaha's newly designed DXS subwoofers (sold separately) will further elevate your system's performance, giving you wider control of its thunderous bottom end. With the perfect balance of raw power and innovative speaker technologies, you can depend on DXR Series speakers to deliver the full power of your performance to every member of your audience.

The Power of "D"
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. Combined with Yamaha's advanced analog signal processing and acoustic technologies, the "Power of "D" delivers ultimate performance.

Ultra-Precise 48-bit 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 optimizes 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 48-bit (76-bit accumulator) high-performance processor for high-definition sound quality. All full-range models employ high-precision 24-bit 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 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. MONITOR mode is completely optimized for floor monitor application by intelligently taming down the low-frequency that adds up due to floor reflection, smoothing out a wide range of frequency bands to give you stunning clarity for monitoring your sound. Both of these presets were perfected by performing countless listening tests with skilled sound engineers, giving you a multi-band compressor that performs dynamically, delivering consistent sound with low distortion at any output level.

Extensive DSP Protection Functions for Maximum Output
In a typical system comprising passive loudspeakers, power amps and signal processors, trying to set optimal parameters for each component can be a daunting task. One of the advantages of active loudspeakers is that the combination of transducers and amps can be perfectly optimized. During the development of the DXR 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, they were able to set the optimal limiter point for each model using precise DSP control.

In addition to the optimal limiting, these speakers employ many of the same protection functions used in their 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.

High-Efficiency 1100W Class-D Amplifiers
All DXR Series loudspeakers are equipped with highly efficient Class-D amplifiers that were optimally designed to match the DXR's HF and LF transducers. These high-performance amplifiers deliver the highest sound output in their class with 1100W of power, producing an impressive SPL. 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 Series employs an all-new, high-efficiency switching-mode power supply for its outstanding performance. The power supply is also suitable for use worldwide with its multi-voltage design.

Intelligent Onboard 3-Channel Mixer
The DXR Series features a flexible onboard mixer with a variety of input, making it ideal for simple vocal/ instrument amplification. With its flexible IN/OUT, the DXR Series can comprise a full sound reinforcement system, or seamlessly integrate into a setup utilizing DSR or DXS Series speakers.

Versatile Mic and Line Level Input Capability
The DXR 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 from microphones to line level instruments and portable audio devices. When in MIC position, an HPF is automatically activated to roll off unwanted low frequency.

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-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, while LINK MODE allows you to easily switch between stereo or dual-mono configurations.

Custom-Designed DXR Transducers
All DXR Series transducers were meticulously selected and thoroughly customized to deliver ultimate performance. The detailed characteristics and behavior of each transducer was fully analyzed and evaluated with sophisticated computer simulations in order to help realize their full performance potential. The high power output woofers deliver very low distortion and defined, deep bass, while the 1.4" precision compression drivers produce accurate midrange and high frequencies up to 20kHz.

DXR Wide Dispersion Constant Directivity Horn
The HF transducer is mounted to an all-new 90∞x 60∞constant directivity horn, designed with the goal of minimizing 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.

Durable, Compact ABS Enclosures
Full-range models are moulded in rugged, non-resonant ABS enclosures and are designed to 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 aluminum handles that greatly improve durability and portability.

Dual-Angle Polemount Socket
Depending on the venue, sometimes your mix can fall prey to low ceilings or other room attributes that can impede a clear, even mix and detract from the audiences' listening experience significantly. The DXR's polemount socket offers two positions (0∞ and 7∞) to direct the acoustic energy away from reflective surfaces and on to your audience where it belongs.

Rigging Points for Standard Eye-Bolts and Optional U-Brackets
DXR Series loudspeakers come equipped with rigging points, allowing for rigged application with standard eyebolts (not included). When more versatility is required, optional U-brackets allow simple and easy rigging in both horizontal and vertical configurations.

      Amazing

      By PAUL STIBAL

      from twin cities

      Comments about Yamaha DXR10 10" Active Speaker:

      This speaker is truly amazing for a 10 inch, 2 way speaker. Your ears will hurt before it starts to hit the limiter. Nice body to it. Very warm response. Don't get me wrong, if you are doing a front of house scenario you will need a sub or two for you average event. But remember what we are referring to, it's a 10 inch, 2 way speaker. This will blow you away as a floor monitor.

      Better than the K10

      By anthony serra

      from sewell nj

      Comments about Yamaha DXR10 10" Active Speaker:

      I also own the K10 but I like the sound of these better. In full range there is more bottom end and they are harder to clip. I do not like the handle placement. But for the money and if you add a sub or 2 they rock...

      A Better 10"

      By PAT HEIMANN

      from Tucson, Az.

      Comments about Yamaha DXR10 10" Active Speaker:

      I just replaced a Stagepas500 system with 2 of the new Yamaha DRX10's and 1 DSX15 sub, and I must say I need to thank Yamaha for a great new system. I needed a little more sound from my PA and what I got is lot more sound and a better sound with this setup. Also Thanks to the good people (Sam) at Guitar Center I got a great price on this setup.

      The better 10" Box

      By PAT HEIMANN

      from Tucson, Az.

      Comments about Yamaha DXR10 10" Active Speaker:

      For the last three years I have been using a great sounding Yamaha Stagepas500 PA setup to do volunteer work for small non-profit groups in town. I had to keep my cost down to help them and keep the wife happy, and at the time the Stagepas500 was the best bang for the buck. Well I am now doing more volunteer work for larger groups and need more sound for the bigger rooms, so I started looking for a setup to replace the Stagepas500. Well after seeing the DXR/DXS line of speakers on yamaha's site and doing a lot of reading about the new DXR10?s and the DXS15 sub at Yamaha?s web site I sold my Stagepas500 setup and went to a Guitar Center and had them order a pair of DXR10?s and a DXS15 sub. It was more than I (and the wife) wanted to spend but Sam at the local store worked with us and came up with a great price on the setup to make it work. I had a small Allen & Heath board to use with them so that saved some cost also. ?Wow? first let me start by thanking the good people at Yamaha for this line of speakers. ?Thank You Yamaha?. OK I have only used them at two gigs so far but Wow what a sound. The sound from them is clean, clear and full. The setup and take down is easy. I don?t believe you can find better sound for the money. Again you get what you pay for from Yamaha. I know you can spend more on speakers if you want too but, I don?t believe you will get a better or fuller sound from such a small box. These things are so small and easy to transport, and setup takes no time to be up and running. If you are looking for the best sounding smaller setups, this is one of them so go for it. I am glad I did. Again, Thank you Yamaha and Guitar Center.
