Offering a choice of two-way, bi-amped (DHR) or passive (CHR) models, the new DHR/CHR12 and DHR/CHR15M Yamaha has added new models to its loudspeaker offering.

Yamaha DHR/CHR loudspeakersSuited to a wide variety of live and installed applications, the DHR12 and CHR12 installation/utility loudspeakers sit between the DHR/CHR10 and DHR/CHR15 models for fixed installations that require higher sound quality and SPL.

Featuring a custom-designed 12-inch woofer with 2.5-inch voice coil, and a precision, 1.4-inch compression driver, both models measure 359 x 578 x 340mm (14.1-inchx 22.8-inchx 13.4-inch). With dual-angle pole mounts, rigging points and an optional U bracket for mounting, a rotatable compression driver means they can be used in horizontal or vertical configuration, making the most of the 90º x 60º coverage angle.

The DHR12’s DSP-equipped, high efficiency class-D amplifier delivers 1kW of power and 48kHz, 24-bit A-D for powerful, dynamic sound, adding approximately two kilograms to the CHR12’s weight of 17.1kg (37.7lb).

The DHR15M and CHR15M floor monitors complement the existing DHR/CHR12M, and use a more powerful coaxial driver, comprising a 15-inch woofer with 3-inch voice coil and a precision 1.75-inch compression driver with large diameter horn for directivity and long throw on larger stages. Featuring an expanded frequency range of 49Hz-20kHz, the enhanced low-frequency reproduction and a higher maximum SPL make these new units ideal monitors for drummers and bass players in particular.

Measuring 642 x 369 x 505mm (25.3-inch x 14.5-inch x 18.9-inch), with a coverage angle of 65ºH by 75ºV, an integrated pole mount socket means that they can also be used as conventional sound reinforcement loudspeakers.

The DSP-equipped class-D amplifier of the DHR15M delivers 1kW of power and FIR tuning, adding approximately 2kg to the 21.3kg (47.0lb) weight of the CHR15M.

All DHR loudspeakers include two input channels with an onboard mixer, while CHR models can take full advantage of dedicated speaker processor tuning settings when used with Yamaha PX Series amplifiers or other compatible signal processors.

Meanwhile, all DHR and CHR models are manufactured with premium plywood cabinets finished in a tough Polyurea coating, which provide durability not found on other loudspeakers in this class. And, of course, with Yamaha’s renowned reliability and design excellence, maximum return on the investment is assured.

‘The DHR/CHR range has been designed to be optimised to meet the demands of a wide variety of sound reinforcement applications,’ says Yamaha Professional Solutions Global division Senior General Manager, Thomas Hemery. ‘From live venues, pubs and clubs through to sports facilities, gyms, retail and corporate applications, the expanded choice of 10-inch, 12-inch and 15-inch models, plus 12-inch and 15-inch floor monitors, all with a variety of practical mounting options means users can specify the ideal, highly cost-effective set-up for a wide variety of environments.’
