Yamaha releases DXS19 subwoofer

AUTHOR: Inavate

Yamaha has announced a mid-summer release for its latest audio product, the DXS18 powered subwoofer.

Powered by a 1020W Class-D amplifier, and an 18-in woofer with a durable 4-in voice coil housed in a sturdy band-pass type plywood enclosure, the DXS18 is able to deliver an impressive 136 dB maximum SPL, and an extended LF response down to 32Hz, with exceptional clarity and minimal distortion.

The new model features Yamaha's proprietary DSP technology with original D-XSUB processing for additional control of the low frequency range via two selectable modes. It also has selectable crossover with three different options (80/100/120Hz) for various applications.

The DXS18 also features a cardioid mode setting for sound systems with two or more DXS18 speakers, effectively reducing the SPL of bass directed towards the stage while increasing the bass levels directed at the intended audience.
