Yamaha are no strangers to professional loudspeakers. Their range of solutions have been heard by millions worldwide and now, they are launching the DHR and CHR series loudspeakers which boast quality sound and wide usability.

There’s three driver size options for these ranges, with 10, 12 and 15 inch woofers available. The 10″ models are designed for installation or use in a fixed environment while the 12″ and 15″ speakers are intended for foldback and FOH uses respectively. The 12″ models feature an angled cabinet and coaxial configured drivers for use in monitoring situations.

All models are created using a plywood cabinet/enclosure with polyurea coating for a robust, transparent and scratch resistant speaker. There’s also rigging points for use with eye bolts and 90 degree rotatable horns to maximise dispersion.

DHR models utilise proprietary FIR-X tuning, which provides filtering and corrective EQ to minimise phase distortion. They range in power from 700W-1000W courtesy of Class-D amplifiers and feature powerful on-board DSP. CHR series loudspeakers when used with Yamaha DSP amplifiers have dedicated speaker processor tuning systems available to maximise system performance.

Both ranges are suited for a wide range of applications from small venues to large gigs.

These new speakers are expected to hit Australian shores in November 2021 and prices are TBA.
