The CBR Series, Yamaha's newest lineup of passive loudspeakers, delivers high-quality sound with impressive power, while offering exceptional portability. The CBR10 is lighter than it's DBR counterparts and do not require power cables, allowing it to easily adapt to both portable and rigged applications where access to a power supply is limited.
The CBR12 represents a perfect balance of size and performance. Ideal for front-of-house, floor monitoring or even rigged applications, the CBR12 is an ideal choice for a wide range of applications. The CBR12 includes the same versatile enclosure design as the DBR Series and comes equipped with one speakON jack and a 1/4" Phone jack, enabling fast, easy connectivity for personal and professional applications. While the DBR Series attains its superior audio performance from Yamaha's advanced DSP technologies, the CBR Series is tuned by precise, in-depth analysis and adjustment of an internal passive network. This results in high-definition, low distortion sound, even at high output levels when used in combination with an external power amplifier such as a P-S Series power amplifier or EMX Series powered mixer. Additionally, the protection circuit limits excessive input to the HF driver to reduce the risk of the damage. Combined with a highly responsive LF unit, the CBR Series remains reliable even when pushed to extreme limits.
Custom Designed Transducers and Wide-Dispersion Constant Directivity Horn for Powerful High-Definition Sound
CBR Series speakers come equipped with carefully selected and customized transducers that feature a highly responsive woofer and a precise 2”compression driver, ensuring consistent high-definition sound with minimal distortion even at high output levels. Additionally, a newly designed wide-dispersion constant directivity horn minimizes the radiation pattern deterioration in oblique directions that more conventional horns are prone to, allowing sound to expand in a more rectangular pattern, evenly dispersing wide-frequency sound to the outer-most edges of the coverage area.
HF Protection and Highly Responsive LF Unit for Reliable Performance at Any Output Level
Have you ever blown your speakers by cranking up the output levels beyond your speakers capabilities? CBR Series speakers employ a protection function that limits excessive input to the HF unit. This valuable protection circuit affords you worry-free operation of your speakers when you need them most. Combined with a highly responsive LF unit, CBR Series speakers reliably deliver clear, precise sound at any output level.
Rugged, Highly Portable Enclosure Design
CBR Series speakers feature a very compact, durable, and lightweight plastic cabinet equipped with newly designed, ergonomic handles that greatly minimize system transport and setup. In addition, all CBR models feature a sleek, steel front grille that seamlessly blends in with installation aesthetics while protecting the vital inner speaker components from environmental hazards.
CBR Series speakers are equipped with one speakON jack and one 1/4" Phone jack that allow for fast and easy connectivity in both personal and professional environments.
Smart Enclosure Design for Floor Monitoring
The CBR Series speakers feature an optimized 50° wedge angle for floor monitoring. In addition, the CBR12's symmetrical shape allows for effortless configuration of a mirror-mode floor monitoring system for a larger and more defined sweet spot.
Rigging Points for Installation Applications
CBR loudspeakers come equipped with M8 rigging points, allowing for rigged applications with optional speaker brackets or standardized eye-bolts.
