Yamaha DHR12M 2-Way Coaxial 12" Active Floor Monitor / Loudspeaker
Yamaha DHR12M Overview
Live sound engineers in search of a professional-grade, active floor monitor will be impressed with the black Yamaha DHR12M, a compact, powered, two-way coaxial floor monitor / loudspeaker that's well suited for clubs, bars, and other live sound applications.
The speaker features a 1000W Class-D amplifier that delivers 800W to the 12" woofer and 200W to the 1.75" compression driver, which are arranged in a coaxial configuration to deliver precise, smooth phase, and frequency response characteristics ideal for use in monitoring application. The monitor offers a frequency range of 55 Hz to 20 kHz. With a maximum SPL output of 129 dB, the floor monitor can easily cut through perilous stage volumes. When used as a main PA, a pair of DHR12M can provide plenty of volume to cover an audience of 300 patrons.
Two inputs are on the back. Inputs 1 and 2 feature combo XLR-1/4" connectors. Input 1 offers a Microphone/Line input switch, while input 2 provides a line-level input and includes a stereo RCA for unbalanced connections. Both inputs feature independent volume controls, allowing you to connect a microphone and line-level source or instrument DI for singer/song writer applications. An XLR output features a Thru/Mix switch that allows the signal from input 1 to pass through or combine the signals from input 1 and 2 together for greater flexibility in deployment.
Other notable features include a high-pass filter (120 or 100 Hz) for use with a subwoofer and a contour switch that utilizes FIR-X tuning technology for system tuning. The FOH/Main setting boosts the high and low frequencies suitable for a main speaker, while the Monitor setting reduces the low-frequency range for using the speaker as a floor monitor.
The plywood enclosure is finished with a durable Polyurea coating and features a rugged metal grille. A standard 1.4" pole socket is available on one side of the speaker, allowing it to be mounted on a speaker pole for side-fill monitoring or main FOH applications.
