Great Compact DXS12 Sub

By Widmarke Loo

from The Big Island Of Hawaii

Comments about Yamaha DXS12 12" Active Subwoofer:

I am a Solo Acoustic Guitarist who also plays Electric Guitar with a Bassist and Drummer. The DXS12 sub is a nice, compact sub for what I need. I use only one DXS12 and it sounds great with my two DXR8's. The DXR8's sound good alone but when I turn the volume up on the Sub it really blends the low end and fill's the room. I was a little hesitant of buying it cause of the size and weight I would have liked if it were a little smaller and liter, but I don't think it would have the same effect on the low's if it were so. This little sub is as solid as a truck. Although I may not be using it every time I think it is a worth while investment and addition for what I need. Also I got a good deal through Guitar Center with the 3 year insurance coverage Aloha...

Very Impressive

By Michael

from Chalmette, Louisiana

Comments about Yamaha DXS12 12" Active Subwoofer:

I'm a mobile DJ in the business now for over 30 years, and I have used all kinds of sound equipment. When it comes to using sub cabinets I prefer 18" for db's & sound coverage, however, I wanted to get something more compact. I researched smaller sub cabs and the DXS12 seemed to be a possible candidate to pair up with my zlx-12p's, so I went to Guitar Center for a listen. I was very impressed, in fact, I would say this sub is Bad to the Bone for a 12" sub. Powerful and sounds great, concert quality. This sub is worth every penny and then some. Guitar Center gave me a great deal, so I purchased one. I have used this sub now for several gigs and I love it. It makes my EV's sound incredible. I give Yamaha a Thumbs Up on this one.

    Comments about Yamaha DXS12 12" Active Subwoofer:

    Went to my local store to get the EV 12 inch subs for an event the next night. They couldn't get them to me in my time frame so I auditioned the Yamaha's. They had great sound and appeared to be put together well. Even though they were more than the EV's I had used unpowered Yamaha's in the past and was very happy with them. Now mind you I take care of my gear but when you're on the road...bumps happen. I've used my subs twice and the rest of the time they have been stored in their own little corner of the truck. Pulled my BOSE system out to do an event and had seen that a B-1 bass bin had slid off it's location and bumped the Yammie. It knocked a BIG chunk out of the corner and revealed the particle board within. On closer inspection I found the whole cabinet is particle board. Not 5, 7 or 9 ply no void birch but a $700 box of particle board. Needless to say, I'm a bit disappointed. Had I researched it better....I'd have driven all over to track down the EV's. So....I'm going to mount "corner protectors" on all of them and use them VERY carefully. Other than that.....they sound VERY good.

    Great for performances, home theater, just listening to music.

    By John Vonachen

    from Denver, CO

    Comments about Yamaha DXS12 12" Active Subwoofer:

    Have you ever wondered why bass solos are usually so lame? I believe it's mostly because when we listen to audio we rarely have the proper speakers to reproduce what was intended, especially on the lower level. Since I got this I don't have that problem anymore. You definitely hear what you were missing. Your neighbors hear it to, he he.
