Overview

The Yamaha MSR400 Powered Speaker is a biamplified, 2-way system featuring 400W maximum burst power driving a 12" cone woofer and 1-3/4" voice coil compression driver. Frequency division is accomplished prior to the amplifiers via a line-level electronic crossover, eliminating problems with loss, distortion, and phase. Power is optimally assigned to the low- and high-frequency units for smooth, natural balance across the spectrum. The Yamaha speaker accepts nominal input levels from -36dB to +4dB, meaning you can connect any source from microphones to pro line-level gear directly. Three parallel connections are provided--2 XLR-type connectors and one balanced phone jack--which can be used either as inputs or parallel outputs.

The Yamaha MSR400 speaker cab has input level control for matching with the source signal, low and high EQ controls, and a sleek appearance round out the great features of this speaker cab. Stackable, flyable, and polemountable.

Don't forget the bottom end. The MSR800W powered subwoofer (sold separately) is the perfect companion to this active PA speaker.

Stay away from this one.... I have two of them. Found out no replacement diaphrams available for them, if you pop a horn you have to replace the tweeter vs replacing a diaphram. Keep looking! Too many other good options at this price point.

      Love this speaker. Me and my partner work in the shearing sheds and have had this speaker second hand for three or four years and it is still going the same since the day we bought it. Also got told it is the best speaker out of the three different brands that are here

      Comments about Yamaha MSR400 Powered Speaker Cabinet:

      Yamaha makes some great stuff, and this was a "Stupid Deal of the Day", so it was a no-brainer to buy. Am NOT disappointed, as it works great.

      I bought it for a floor monitor, and it works flawlessly. My only regret was that I didn't have the $$$ to get 4 of them when I bought this one...

            I have 25 years in the music industry. Recently retired from touring. I am now operating a DJ business. I knew I wanted the best ALL AROUND speakers and went directly to the Yamaha line. I now HAVE four MSR 400's. The Yamaha line will out do, out perform and out last ANY speakers, 12 inch or 15 inch on the market today. The MSR 400 is a STAPLE in the Yamaha line and in my opinion, it is THE PERFECT speaker. AND don't worry about the bass on this puppy, it has some.

            Great sound and good volume for size, fantastic as a party speaker or acoustic PA, Lacks the power for hard rock or metal Band gigs, But has plenty for practising and low volume sessions.

            Yamaha MSR-400 - Another great product from Yamaha!

            By Roger Haas

            from New England

            Comments about Yamaha MSR400 Powered Speaker Cabinet:

            These are excellent speakers and one of the best values for the money. I am a huge Yamaha fan anyway because they make great sounding, durable equipment for a reasonable price. I am currently using one of these as a floor monitor and get accurate reproduction of acoustic guitar, keyboard and vocals at excellent volume. Pleasantly suprised with the bass response from this 12" speaker. Can't wait to get another one!

            Comments about Yamaha MSR400 Powered Speaker Cabinet:

            Ive had this speaker for over a year now, and it has not disappointed yet. Has crisp clean highs that cut through any mix, and can produce thundery (not sure if thats a word!) bass when needed! I use it as a floor wedge when Im gigging with a 5-piece band, it's the PA during band rehearsal, and I use it as a stand-alone keyboard amp when I practice alone. It is easy to carry; the handles are well placed and the weight is nicely distributed. The input/output options on the back have saved my live. There are (2) 1/4" jacks, a XLR female and a XLR male; all of which are wired parallel. Only downside to the MSR 400....the composite speaker cabinet is an easy "roller" when transporting it. It must be strapped down when driving or else it will roll all over your car, smash into things, and damage the plastic speaker casing. I have a few chunks of plastic missing as a result of this very thing. User error? yes. But Id like to see a more durable plastic in the future

            whats your venue?

            Comments about Yamaha MSR400 Powered Speaker Cabinet:

            Depending on your venue these things are great! For small to medium sized places these will do the trick and you cant beat the price. one of the best features are the individual hi and low eq's on the back, better than having a hi frequency crossover in my opinion. And to top it off their lightweight, you can carry both at the same time.
