Get Thunderous Lows With Best In Class SPL With The Yamaha DXS18 18" Powered Subwoofer

The new Yamaha  DXS 18 achieves best in class SPL of up to 136dB and delivers the lowest frequency 32Hz in the lineup. Equipped with a band-pass type enclosure and high power handling 4-inch voice coil magnet that drives the 18-inch woofer, the Class-D amplifier delivers 1020W of power with exceptional clarity and accuracy.



HIGH-EFFICIENCY 1020W CLASS-D AMPLIFIERS

The DXS's high performance Class-D amplifier is capable of producing up to 1020W* of power, realizing an SPL of 136dB, delivered with exceptional clarity and accuracy. *DXS12 and DXS15 deliver 950W power.

CUSTOM DESIGNED TRANSDUCER

The high-output woofer features a 4" voice coil magnet and delivers powerful, well-defined, low-frequency bass with minimal distortion. *DXS12 and DXS15 feature 2.5" voice coil magnets.

BAND-PASS TYPE ENCLOSURE

The DXS Series has a band-pass design that produces extremely high SPL by drastically reducing the distortion.

DURABLE WOODEN ENCLOSURES WITH LINE-X COATING

The exteriors feature a LINE-X coating with extremely high damage resistance to protect the cabinet from scratches and wear, maintaining a professional appearance that can withstand many years of usage.

SELECTABLE X-OVER(80/100/120HZ)

Crossover switching allows users to seamlessly match DXS subwoofers with any of Yamaha’s full-range powered speakers by selecting the cutoff frequency best suited to the models in their speaker array (up to 120Hz).

D-XSUB BASS PROCESSING

Powerful D-XSUB processing gives you total control of your low frequency. NORMAL mode gives you the ideally balanced low-frequency response, while BOOST mode provides a more tight and focused bass. XTENDED LF mode drops the low-end frequencies down even further for thunderous bottom end that delivers. Take your full-range system to the next level with the power and versatility of DXS Series active subwoofers.

CARDIOID MODE

Because low frequencies can be omnidirectional, controlling the output directivity of a system's bottom end can be a challenge, with the sound pressure hitting the stage often being equal to that of it's intended FOH audience. For setups consisting of two or more DXS18 subwoofers, selecting the newly developed Cardioid Mode function effectively decreases stage-side sound pressure while increasing the bottom-end output directed towards the audience, resulting in a clearer stage monitoring environment and a more pronounced bass experience out front. *Only for DXS18

DUAL POLE SOCKET

For additional flexibility configuring your speakers, the DXS18 comes equipped with a dual pole socket that accommodates 35mm diameter speaker poles and M20 screws. *Only for DXS18

OPTIONAL WHEEL KIT (OPTION)

For more fast and convenient setup of your DXS18 subwoofers, optional wheels are available, featuring radial ball bearings that ensure quiet during your performance. *Only for DXS18 (SPW-1)Optional Wheel Kit (Option)
