Yamaha DXR8ii powered speaker is a compact 8″ + 1.75″ box, with a very intuitive and well-featured back panel.
Developed in collaboration with NEXO, the ‘MkII’ series of DXR feature newly designed transducers, including the high powered woofer and larger (1.75″) neodymium HF for clear sound, higher SPL and lighter weight – when compared with the original DXR series.
Being so compact, DXR8ii is an obvious choice for use as either a Front-of-House speaker on top of a subwoofer, stand-alone for neat audiovisual applications, or laying on the stage as a floor monitor (foldback) for performers.
There is plenty of horsepower for any of these applications, with 600w (continuous) on-board amplification for the 8″ woofer (2″ voice coil), and 100w for the 1.75″ compression driver (1″ throat), neodymium. Rated at 700w continuous (1100w ‘dynamic’), DXR8ii has a very healthy Max SPL of 130 dB.
Being Yamaha, you know the sound will be great. Let’s dive into the back panel – that’s where the action is!
Input 1 – XLR input (mic/line switchable), with level control
Input 2 – L&R 1/4″ unbalanced Jacks, with level control
Input 3 – L&R RCA sockets, with level control
LINK OUT – the XLR output has a very nice feature…simply link two DXR8ii speakers for ‘dual mono’, or flick the ‘stereo’ switch, and your DXR8ii rig will keep the stereo image created with your stereo feeds from input 2 or 3.
