Yamaha Announces the Upcoming Release of the VS Series Surface Mount Speakers

May. 11, 2011

Shizuoka, Japan, May 11, 2011 - An exciting addition to Yamaha's growing line of commercial installation products, the VS Series offers a perfect blend of aesthetic simplicity and functional sophistication. Ideal for background music or as part of a PA system for announcements, the VS Series speakers deliver high quality sound with exceptional clarity in a wide variety of settings both indoor and outdoor. What's more, their smart, compact construction is easily adaptable to virtually any environment, and particularly well suited to locations where interior design is a consideration. Whether in a retail store, bar, restaurant, cafe, meeting room, house of worship; or even assuming an ancillary role for theaters or stadiums, Yamaha VS Series speakers are the obvious choice. Scheduled for release in early fall, 2011.

The VS Series offers two models: the VS6 and VS4. The VS6 comes with a 6.5" woofer to handle the bottom end, while the VS4 houses a 4" woofer. Both models feature a 1" balanced dome tweeter for superb clarity at higher frequencies. With waterproof enclosures and transducers, the VS Series meets the industry standard IEC60529 IPX3 rating requirements, lending peace of mind to outdoor usage. Adding still more versatility, internally mounted transformers allow the VS Series speakers to operate in 70V or 100V distributed sound systems. Both models are available in black or white and may be installed horizontally or vertically using an enclosed dedicated, color-matched steel U-bracket.

Kazunori Kobayashi, General Manager of the Yamaha Pro Audio Division, was eager to comment on the VS Series' anticipated release: "We are very pleased to launch these speakers as part of our expanding efforts in the commercial installation market. It is our hope that these speakers will create a distinct ambience while providing the outstanding sound quality you've come to expect from Yamaha."
