HS5 Powered Studio Monitor
- 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor with 5" cone woofer and 1" dome tweeter
- 54Hz - 30kHz frequency response
- 45W LF plus 25W HF bi-amp system for high-performance 70W power amplification
- ROOM CONTROL and HIGH TRIM response controls
- XLR and TRS phone jack inputs accept balanced or unbalanced signals
Improving on the success of the original HS line launched in 2006, the completely redesigned HS series feature new transducers that achieve smooth response over a wide bandwidth and ensure the accuracy of signal reproduction throughout the audio spectrum. By upgrading to a 1" tweeter (from the previous 3/4" models) the new monitor series provides an extended frequency range and deliver superb high-resolution sound. Yamaha engineers have optimized the HS powered monitor and subwoofer monitor system for a variety of music production environments.
The HS5 (5" cone and 1" dome tweeter), HS7 (6.5" cone and 1" dome tweeter) and HS8 (8" cone and 1" dome tweeter) are housed in bass reflex-type cabinets and reproduce tight low-end and smooth, high frequency response. Two inputs, a balanced XLR and a 1/4" phone jack, can accommodate a wide range of balanced and unbalanced sources, including mixers, keyboards and audio interfaces.
Additionally, the new HS Series cabinets offer low resonance enclosure designs constructed from a dense, resilient MDF for a damped acoustic response that is perfectly suited for reference monitors. Each monitor and subwoofer is also equipped with a unique high performance amp unit, perfectly paired with each transducer. The coupled amp unit ensures that each HS Series speaker delivers high-resolution sound with exceptionally flat response across the spectrum.
Each monitor speaker employs leading edge noise reduction technology, controlling and reducing the vortex at either end of the speaker port that can generate air vibrations inside and cause unwanted noise in many studio monitors. To combat this, Yamaha adopted advanced noise reduction technology when designing the ports.
