The Yamaha HS5 W 5" powered studio monitor delivers professional-level audio monitoring in a space-saving design. Yamaha's iconic studio monitors are a staple in recording studios across the globe, and the HS5 continues that tradition of sonic excellence and reliability. Featuring a bi-amplified design with dedicated amps for the woofer and tweeter, the HS5 provides accurate frequency response so you can achieve balanced, impactful mixes.

High-performance Transducers Provide Accurate Response

At the heart of the HS5 are a 5" cone woofer and 1" dome tweeter, selected and engineered to minimize distortion and resonance. The woofer's oversized magnet generates a strong, consistent magnetic field for tight bass response and dynamic range. The tweeter's wide dispersion pattern and smooth contour ensure clear, detailed highs. Together, these components deliver a wide frequency range with stunning fidelity.

Tailor the Sound With Flexible Controls

The HS5 gives you options to optimize the sound for your environment. The Room Control switch cuts low frequencies to compensate for placement near walls. The Mid EQ switch boosts or cuts midrange frequencies, allowing you to highlight vocals and instruments or create a more open tone. The High Trim control attenuates high frequencies if needed. With these controls, you can achieve balanced, accurate monitoring in any room.

Bi-amplification and Onboard Power for Convenience

The HS5 features a bi-amplified design with dedicated amps for the woofer and tweeter, eliminating interference between frequency ranges. Built-in power amplifiers provide 45W to the woofer and 25W to the tweeter, so no external amps are needed. This integrated design results in a highly responsive system with minimal signal degradation for transparent sound.

Roadworthy and Ready to Go

Compact and portable, the HS5 is ideal for project studios, post-production suites, and on-location recording. Rear panel inputs include balanced XLR and 1/4" TRS jacks for connecting audio interfaces, mixers, and other line-level sources. A volume control dial helps you achieve the perfect level for your environment. Ruggedly built, the HS5 can withstand the rigors of travel and tightly controlled conditions, making it a flexible monitoring solution for audio professionals on the go.
