The new subwoofer will be available in October.
"Drawing from the constant feedback of Yamaha powered speaker users in the field, and the valuable insight we have accrued from our ongoing collaboration with the touring loudspeaker experts at NEXO, we have produced a subwoofer that will meet the strictest demands of customers and their expanding scope of sound reinforcement applications," said Ken Hiraoka, department manager, Yamaha Pro Audio. "By delivering a cabinet with impressive power output and extended low frequency range, this full-range speaker offers a powerful new solution to build sound systems for more large-scale venues and audiences."
The DXS18 is powered by a 1020W Class-D amplifier and features an 18-inch woofer with a 4-inch voice coil in a band-pass type plywood enclosure. The subwoofer is capable of delivering 136 dB maximum SPL with an extended LF response down to 32Hz. In addition, the device uses the company's proprietary DSP processing and includes crossover control with three different options (80/100/120Hz).
Yamaha's DXS18 is expected to start shipping in October for a suggested retail price of $1,949.
