Yamaha DXR8 MKII 8" Active PA Speaker

As loud as a 200 strong brass band, but a bit easier to carry. The Yamaha DXR8mkII 8'' Active PA Speaker delivers an impressive 130 dB SPL output in a portable and easy to use package. Chock full of the latest in audio technology, the DXR8mkII is smarter than your average speaker.

As well as the incredible volume, you'll be struck by the detail and quality of the audio reproduction. Only the best drivers and components are used in the construction of the speaker. Everything is controlled by advanced DSP to give you the best possible sound.

An automatic multi-band compressor, flexible on board mixer, phase managing crossover, and efficient class D amplifiers combine on the cutting edge of audio technology. The result is simple. Great live sound.

Yamaha's extended warranty

After purchase, simply register your DXR8mkII 8'' Active PA Speaker on Yamaha's website to access their extended 7 year warranty at no extra cost. All you need to do is register and you'll get great live sound performance, with peace of mind for years to come.

Versatile and easy to use

You can easily use the Yamaha DXR8mkII in a variety of configurations. The integrated three channel mixer caters to a range of sound sources thanks to the XLR, 1/4'' jack, and RCA connectors. For positioning, the speaker includes two speaker pole mounts at 0° and 7°, along with rigging points for flown or installation settings.

The cutting edge of audio technology

You can be sure of great sound all the way up to the maximum volume and all the way down to 56 Hz. This rock solid sound performance is thanks to the D-contour technology. D-Contour is an intelligent multi-band limiter, which adjusts your EQ depending on the output of multiple frequency bands.

Yamaha's advanced FIR-X crossover tuning doesn't just split your sound into low and high frequencies. The crossover also intelligently manages the phase of each band coming out of the crossover. This results in a cleaner sound with no mid range phase cancellation which can plague lesser two way speakers.
