The VXL1 series includes three models with different numbers of speaker units: the VXL1B-24 / VXL1W-24, VXL1B-16 / VXL1W-16 and VXL1B-8 / VXL1W-8. These models are suited for multipurpose halls, lecture halls, conference rooms, and other facilities that require maximum intelligibility throughout the listening area, and can be combined to optimally serve a variety of spaces and situations.
The VXL series feature slim 54mm-wide cabinets and elegantly curved grille designs that blend well with any décor while delivering uniform, top-quality sound for speech and music reproduction in a wide range of applications.
Yamaha also brought out its CZR series, a range of passive loudspeakers that offer high power handling and good sonic performance in a portable and lightweight, yet rugged, design.
The CZR is ideal for a range of live performance and installed sound environments, from live bands at outdoor festivals to DJs in clubs, and users may add CXS XLF series passive subwoofers to extend the system’s low frequency performance.
The CZR series features 15˝, 12˝ and 10˝ models with transducers with die-cast aluminium frames with a 3˝ voice coil for very high power input, and a lightweight yet powerful neodymium magnet.
Last but not least was Yamaha’s DZR series, introduced with the DXS XLF subwoofers. The DZR series represents Yamaha’s first fully-integrated, smart/editable speaker range of professional, powered loudspeakers.
All DZR speakers and DXS XLF subwoofers come in Dante-equipped “D” models enabling smart system integration with Yamaha consoles and other Dante devices via the Dante I/O (2in/2out) which also features SRC (sample rate conversion) allowing 48kHz device compatibility.
Like the DZR, the CZR models also feature the rotatable constant directivity horn design (90°x 50° for the CZR15, and 90°x 60° for the CZR12 and CZR10) for increased flexibility in mounting vertically or horizontally.
Besides launching the speaker series, Yamaha held demonstrations allowing guests to experience the sound capabilities of the speakers. Demonstrations ranged from public announcements to recorded music, showing off the versatility of the speakers.
