The DXR12mkII is an extremely high-power loudspeaker that is capable of producing a maximum SPL of 134dB with its impressive 1100W of power. It is the perfect solution for live sound applications that demand wide bandwidth and extremely high-resolution sound.
Louder, Lighter, Legendary
Since its inception, the DXR Series has long signified a confluence of raw power and technological innovation that reliably harnesses and delivers impressively high output with superior quality and clarity. The DXR mkII Series powered loudspeakers are the newly upgraded models of the series that add even more SPL and feature a larger, yet much lighter 1.75” Neodymium HF compression driver for extremely clear voice reproduction and musicality. Once again our team worked in tight collaboration with touring loudspeaker specialists NEXO, adding crucial insight and expertise that led to design improvements based on the ever-evolving demands of sound reinforcement professionals.
Whether for fixed applications or mobile live performances - whatever direction you want to take your sound - the DXR mkII Series is up to the task, combining raw power with our own proprietary advanced DSP functions for all the reliability and outstanding clarity you’ve come to expect from the DXR Series… only MORE.
Less Weight, More Power
Custom-Designed Transducers improved : All DXR mkII Series transducers were meticulously selected and thoroughly customized to deliver ultimate performance. The high power output woofers deliver very low distortion and defined, deep bass, while the newly equipped larger, yet much ligher 1.75” Neodymium precision HF compression drivers produce accurate midrange and high frequencies up to 20 kHz with less weight.
Wide Dispersion Constant Directivity Horn: The larger HF transducer is mounted to an all-new 90° x 60° constant directivity horn, designed with the goal of minimizing radiation pattern deterioration in oblique directions as more conventional horns are prone to doing. This can help to achieve a more ideal coverage area without irregularities. With the new wide dispersion constant directivity horn, sound expands in a more rectangular pattern providing 90° horizontal x 60 ° vertical coverage, with wide-frequency sound projected to the edges of the coverage area.
Ultra-Precise 48Bit DSP Processing for High-Definition Sound
All full range models feature Yamaha's proprietary FIR-X tuning™ utilizing linear phase FIR* filters for the crossover network. FIR-X™ tuning simultaneously optimizes frequency and phase response while adjusting the time alignment between the HF and LF transducers. This creates a very smooth response around the crossover point, providing much better clarity and imaging than what is possible with typical crossovers.
All signals are precisely processed by a 48bit (76bit accumulator) high-performance processor for high definition sound quality. All full-range models employ high-precision 24bit discrete A/D and D/A converters with superior S/N ratio and dynamic range.

Extensive DSP Protection Functions for Maximum Output
In a typical system comprising passive loudspeakers, power amps and signal processors, trying to set optimal parameters for each component can be a daunting task. One of the advantages of active loudspeakers is that the combination of transducers and amps can be perfectly optimized. During the development of the DZR, DXR mkII, DBR and DXS series, we measured and tested the durability of each transducer and the overall amp output through countless indoor and outdoor listening tests. Based on the test results, we were able to set the optimal limiter point for each model using precise DSP control.
In addition to the optimal limiting, our speakers employ many of the same protection functions used in our top-class TXn Series professional power amplifiers. A microprocessor and high-power DSP monitor the status of the power supply, power amplifiers, transducers and ongoing signals to protect all aspects of each component. As a result, these speakers can perform to their full potential while ensuring reliable operation in even the most severe conditions.
Switchable White Front LED: Each of the full-range models and DXS speakers has a white LED behind the front grille that illuminates when powered and varies in brightness depending on the amount of system limiting.
Intelligent Onboard 3-Channel Mixer
The DXR mkII Series features a flexible onboard mixer with a variety of input, making it ideal for simple vocal/ instrument amplification. With its flexible IN/OUT, the DXR mkII Series can comprise a full sound reinforcement system, or seamlessly integrate into a setup utilizing DZR or DXS Series speakers.
Versatile Mic and Line Level Input Capability: The DXR mkII onboard mixer can handle up to three simultaneous inputs. It accepts both Mic and Line level input, giving you the flexibility to connect to a variety of sources from microphones to line level instruments and portable audio devices. When in MIC position, a HPF is automatically activated to roll off unwanted low frequency.
Flexible HPF Control: All DXR mkII loudspeakers feature flexible HPF control to perfectly match with DXS subwoofers. You can choose either 100Hz or 120Hz depending on which subwoofer you are using in combination with the DXR mkII. DXS Series subwoofers feature flexible LPF settings allowing you to find the optimal HPF/LPF balance for your sound.
Smart Mixing / Linking Function: Each channel has an individual volume control, letting you mix three discrete audio sources. THRU out passes the input signal from Channel 1 and LINK OUT sends mixed signal from all channels-ideal for daisy-chaining or routing the signal to another destination. LINK OUT is very useful for configuring a compact SR system with another DXR, while LINK MODE allows you to easily switch between stereo or dual-mono configurations.
