Build Remarkably Compact Background Music Systems with VXS1ML Speakers and VXS3S Subwoofers

Feb, 07

February 7th, 2017. Shizuoka, Japan. – the Yamaha commercial installation lineup will be expanded with the release of the most compact speakers to date: the VXS1ML full-range speakers, and the remarkably lightweight, compact VXS3S subwoofers with original SR-Bass™ technology.

A growing trend in commercial spaces such as retail outlets and restaurants is to place as much emphasis on background music reproduction as on décor, air conditioning, and lighting, in order to provide a relaxing atmosphere for patrons. Since 2012, Yamaha has offered a total-solution lineup that includes MTX series matrix processors, XMV series power amplifiers, and VXS/VXC series speakers, providing everything needed for top-quality sound in commercial installations that can be flexibly designed to accommodate applications of just about any layout and scale.

The latest additions to the lineup, the VXS1ML full-range speakers and VXS3S subwoofers, are ideal choices for restaurants, apparel shops, hotels, and other environments where relaxing, natural-sounding BGM reproduction is the goal. The new speakers feature remarkably compact enclosures designed with flowing lines that will blend unobtrusively with any type of interior décor.

The VXS1ML features a newly developed 1.5” full-range driver unit that, thanks to a powerful neodymium magnet and other refinements, delivers extraordinary sonic quality despite its diminutive size. At the same time it offers wide 170° horizontal and vertical dispersion so that large spaces can be efficiently served by a relatively small number of speakers.

The VXS3S subwoofer employs Yamaha’s own SR-Bass technology, to achieve powerful yet natural bass reproduction in a compact enclosure. The VXS3S supports both low- and high-impedance connections to ideally serve the scale and purpose of a variety of systems. It also includes satellite connectors that allow convenient direct connection to VXS1ML or other full-range speakers such as VXS3F, thereby minimizing the number of amplifier channels required. A built-in crossover is automatically applied when the satellite connectors are used, providing exceptionally smooth frequency transition from the subwoofer to full-range speakers.

In addition to outstanding music reproduction quality, a variety of mounting hardware allows for flexible mounting just about anywhere, including flush mounting in a ceiling or mounting on lighting rails, to optimally match the décor and atmosphere of the space. Both models are available in two colors, white and black.

Yoshi Tsugawa, Yamaha Pro Audio Business Unit Director comments:

We are very pleased to announce the addition of new VXS1ML compact surface mount speakers and VXS3S compact subwoofer. Comfortable space contributes to enhance customer attraction effect. The wide coverage of VXS1ML fills the space with sound and creates a comfortable environment. We hope to support creating a comfortable space with the system that combines VXS1ML and VXS3S.
