Yamaha expands portable sound range

Yamaha has announced two additions to its professional audio lineup with the STAGEPAS 1K mkII portable PA system and the DXL1K powered loudspeaker.

Featuring a high frequency array of ten 1.5-in speakers and a 12-in bass reflex subwoofer, all driven by a Class-D amplifier, STAGEPAS 1K is an all-in-one portable PA system that delivers professional audio performance from a small footprint and slimline vertical profile.

With a coverage area of 170° (horizontal) by 30° (vertical), STAGEPAS 1K delivers sound throughout an audience. The onboard digital mixer offers extensive input capabilities, with three channels of mono microphone/line inputs, plus stereo inputs, as well as straightforward operation of 1-Knob EQ and Music/DJ/Speech Mode.

The new STAGEPAS 1K mkII adds enhanced sound pressure levels and more flexible remote control to all the features which made the first generation system so popular. 

A fully-redesigned 1100W Class-D amplifier delivers top-of-its-class 125dB SPL with stability and accuracy, allowing users to stage even more powerful performances.

The functionality is enhanced with STAGEPAS Controller, an all-new software application which allows you to remotely control all STAGEPAS 1K mkII parameters using an Android™ or iOS device. In addition, a scene recall feature allows you to save and recall your settings for individual songs or applications, reducing the setup time during rehearsal or performance.

Complementing the STAGEPAS 1K mkII is the new DXL1K, a much-requested ‘sister’ system without the onboard mixer. Featuring an identical power amplifier, speaker arrays, high grade construction and slimline profile, the DXL1K delivers the same quality sound.

As well as being suitable for use as a standalone powered speaker system with a separate audio mixer, linking STAGEPAS 1K mkII and DXL1K systems provides increased coverage and output power for larger-scale events. A 1:1 system can be set up to deliver either stereo or mono sound. If the STAGEPAS 1K mkII is set to deliver mono audio, the inputs of the DXL1K and STAGEPAS 1K mkII can both be used, meaning up to five mono inputs plus one stereo input are available. 

Similarly, two DXL1K with two STAGEPAS 1K mkII (or three DXL1K with one STAGEPAS 1K mkII) can cover a wider or deeper area with either stereo or mono audio.
