SERIOUS. BASS. PERFORMANCE.
If you like your bass prominent and powerful, DXS Series high-output, powered subwoofers will ensure your bottom-heavy audio is heard loud and clear. Featuring high-efficiency Class-D amplifiers and a customized woofer housed in a sturdy plywood band-pass enclosure, DXS subwoofers are capable of delivering up to an impressive 1020W of distortion-free power with supreme clarity. The lineup features the acclaimed DXS18 and recently upgraded versions of the 15” and 12” models, the DXS15mkII and DXS12mkII, which have adopted technologies and features from the DXS18 for an added professional edge and boost in performance. All feature Yamaha’s state-of-the-art DSP, protection functions, and flexible crossover control allowing for seamless compatibility with Yamaha’s vast lineup of full-range speakers, and reliable management of your bottom end. We’ve worked tirelessly to develop subwoofers with this level of versatility, dependability, and power because for Yamaha, great bass is serious business. Make it your business too.
The DXS 18 achieves best in class SPL of up to 136dB and delivers the lowest frequency response (down to 32Hz) in the lineup. Housed in a sturdy band-pass enclosure, the custom built 18” driver with a large 4-inch voice coil and a Class-D amplifier delivers 1020W of power with exceptional clarity and accuracy.
Thunderous low-end. The Yamaha DXS18XLF-D Powered Subwoofer offers 1600W max power, 136dB SPL, and an extended low-end frequency response using the XTENDED LF mode that drops frequencies all the way down to 30Hz. These combine to deliver devastatingly powerful bass, with unparalleled articulation and clarity.
The DXS18XLF-D is the Dante-equipped ‘D’ version of the DXS18XLF, allowing for easy smart system integration with Yamaha consoles and other Dante devices via the Dante I/O. It’s robust construction makes it the perfect sub for live use; its durable Polyurea coating is extremely damage resistant, providing optimum protection against scratches, bumps and severe weather conditions.
High-Efficiency 1020W Class-D Amplifiers
The DXS’s high-performance Class-D amplifier is capable of producing up to 1020W of power, and a maximum SPL of 136dB, delivered with exceptional clarity and accuracy. Both the DXS15mkII and DXS12mkII can produce 3dB more SPL than previous models.
Custom Designed Transducer
The high-output woofer of DXS18 features a 4″ voice coil magnet and delivers powerful, well-defined, low-frequency bass with minimal distortion. The DXS12mkII and DXS15mkII both feature 2.5″ voice coil magnets.
Band-Pass Type Enclosure
All DXS Series enclosures incorporate a band-pass design to reduce unwanted vibrations and noise that could otherwise sabotage your sound. We’ve also designed a very durable plywood enclosure which, when combined with the band-pass configuration, tested better than the traditional bass-reflex design and reduced distortion considerably, making it possible to achieve a higher SPL.
