Yamaha DXS18XLF 15' 1600Watt Powered Subwoofer
Versatile low frequency module for live sound.
Like the full-range DZR models, the DXS XLF subwoofers are also driven by 96kHz high power DSP processors and utilize the dynamic EQ.
Onboard D-XSUB LF processing gives you total management of your lower frequencies with NORMAL mode set for ideally balanced low-frequency response, while BOOST mode provides a tighter and more focused bass with some extra punch. XTENDED LF mode drops the low-end frequencies down even further for thunderous bottom end that delivers a low frequency extension unheard of from a cabinet of this size.
Usually the higher the output, the more difficult it is to manage low frequency energy directivity, and significant stage-side sound pressure levels can sabotage your monitoring, but with DXS XLF setups consisting of two or more subwoofers, selecting the Cardioid Mode effectively decreases the sound pressure on stage while increasing the bottom-end output directed towards the audience, resulting in a cleaner stage monitoring environment. Your DZR full-range system will reach new performance heights when used with the pronounced, powerful lows of DXS XLF active subwoofers.
Dante-equipped for sophisticated capability with simple connectivity
Each each DXS XLF model comes in a Dante-equipped “D” version 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.
Patching is simplified considerably with Yamaha CL/QL digital mixing consoles from the I/O device display, while TF console users can select Quick Config for surprisingly fast, easy set up and operation of a sophisticated sound reinforcement system. Combining the Analog I/O with Dante I/O, opens up countless routing and system configuration options, while the Dante break-IN and break-OUT function can add even more flexibility by acting as a simple I/O box. What’s more, Yamaha’s customizable control panel software “ProVisionare Control” for windows and “ProVisionare Touch” for iPad are also Dante compatible, adding more simple remote management of your sound reinforcement system.
Acoustics and utility
New Yamaha proprietary transducers with a durable die cast aluminum frame and 4” voice coil are crucial to achieving such impressive low frequency response, even at the highest output levels. A dual damper also helps to realize extraordinarily high linearity of the low frequencies by mitigating unwanted vibration during extreme output levels.
Durable, portable, and road-ready
DXS XLF enclosure exteriors feature a durable Polyurea coating with extremely high damage resistance to protect the cabinet from scratches, bumps, or severe weather conditions, maintaining a professional appearance for years to come. Additionally, the new, easy-to-grip aluminum handle, optional SPW1 wheel kit, and SPCVR speaker covers provide additional safety, portability, and peace of mind when you’re on the road.
