Yamaha Powered Subwoofer with 18" Woofer and 1020 Watt Amplifier

Prepare to make a lasting impression on your audience with the addition of DXS Series high-output, powered subwoofers to your sound reinforcement system. Featuring high-efficiency Class-D amplifiers and a customized woofer housed in a sturdy enclosure with a band-pass construction, DXS subwoofers are able to deliver up to 1020W of raw power with minimal distortion and superb clarity. Each of the three models that make up the series— the compact DXS12 and DXS15, as well as the new, high output DXS18—comes equipped with Yamaha state-of-the-art DSP processing, protection functions, and flexible crossover control, ensuring versatile management of your bottom end and seamless compatibility with Yamaha’s entire lineup of full-range powered speakers. DXS Series powered subwoofers offer a new level of flexibility, reliability, and power for engineers, artists and audiences that are serious about their bass.

High-Efficiency 1020W Class-D Amplifiers
The DXS’s high performance Class-D amplifier is capable of producing up to 1020W* of power, realizing an SPL of 136dB, delivered with exceptional clarity and accuracy. *DXS12 and DXS15 deliver 950W power.

Custom Designed Transducer
The high-output woofer features a 4" voice coil magnet and delivers powerful, well-defined, low-frequency bass with minimal distortion. *DXS12 and DXS15 feature 2.5" voice coil magnets.

Band-Pass Type Enclosure
he DXS Series has a band-pass design that produces extremely high SPL by drastically reducing the distortion.

Durable Wooden Enclosures with LINE-X Coating
The exteriors feature a LINE-X coating with extremely high damage resistance to protect the cabinet from scratches and wear, maintaining a professional appearance that can withstand many years of usage.

Selectable X-OVER(80/100/120Hz)
Crossover switching allows users to seamlessly match DXS subwoofers with any of Yamaha’s full-range powered speakers by selecting the cutoff frequency best suited to the models in their speaker array (up to 120Hz).

D-XSUB Bass Processing
Powerful D-XSUB processing gives you total control of your low frequency. NORMAL mode gives you the ideally balanced low-frequency response, while BOOST mode provides a more tight and focused bass. XTENDED LF mode drops the low-end frequencies down even further for thunderous bottom end that delivers. Take your full-range system to the next level with the power and versatility of DXS Series active subwoofers.

Cardioid Mode
Because low frequencies can be omnidirectional, controlling the output directivity of a system’s bottom end can be a challenge, with the sound pressure hitting the stage often being equal to that of it’s intended FOH audience. For setups consisting of two or more DXS18 subwoofers, selecting the newly developed Cardioid Mode function effectively decreases stage-side sound pressure while increasing the bottom-end output directed towards the audience, resulting in a clearer stage monitoring environment and a more pronounced bass experience out front. *Only for DXS18

Dual pole socket
For additional flexibility configuring your speakers, the DXS18 comes equipped with a dual pole socket that accommodates 35mm diameter speaker poles and M20 screws. *Only for DXS18
