Yamaha VXS1ML Speaker, VXS3S Subwoofer Make ISE Europe Debut
February 7, 2017
Yamaha Adds New CIS Speaker, Sub to Product Line
Yamaha Corporation Japan has announced the ISE Europe launch of two new products that will expand the CIS (Commercial Installation Solutions) product line, and are ideal for retail outlets, restaurants, anywhere background music is required. The VXS1ML full-range, compact speakers and the extremely lightweight, compact VXS3S subwoofers featuring Yamaha SR-Bass™ technology will be available spring 2017.
The trend in commercial spaces to place as much emphasis on sound reproduction as on décor and lighting has been on the upswing in order to offer patrons a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere to experience background music reproduction. The VXS1ML and VXS3S are ideal choices for 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 size. It offers wide 170° horizontal and vertical dispersion so large spaces can be efficiently served by a relatively small number of speakers.
The VXS3S subwoofer employs Yamaha’s own SR-Bass technology and achieves 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 the VXS1ML or other full-range speakers such as the Yamaha VXS3F, 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.
“Since 2012, Yamaha CIS products have offered a total system solution, providing everything needed for top-quality sound in commercial installations that can be flexibly designed to accommodate applications in just about any layout and scale, states Marc Lopez, director of marketing for Commercial Audio products, Yamaha Professional Audio. “The outstanding music reproduction, wide coverage, and super compact form factor of the new VXS1ML and VXS3S will definitely enhance the customer experience.”
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. The VXS1ML and VXS3S are available in white and black.
