The DZR15-D is a Dante-equipped 2-way bi-amped powered loudspeaker that offers superb clarity at an impressive maximum SPL of 139dB. With best-in-class SPL performance, sophisticated DSP processing, and unrivaled low-frequency sound reproduction, the DZR15-D realizes a truly professional sound delivered with a level of power that belies its compact, lightweight design.
96kHz DSP processors help focus the considerable power output of the DZR into truly high-resolution sound with super-low latency. Yamaha’s newly developed Advanced FIR-X tuning improves significantly on our proprietary FIR-X tuning technology which utilizes linear phase FIR filters for the crossover network and correct EQ. Using FIR filters, we are able to realize very smooth frequency response for stunning clarity and sound imaging without phase distortion. Accurate EQ filtering is also provided for pinpoint adjustment to realize ideal clarity and best-in-class SPL without signal degradation.
An onboard LCD screen allows users to easily navigate the variety of DSP functions, load presets, and make precise adjustments to PEQ, delay, and routing. Store up to 8 user presets to save your own parameter adjustments, or use the optimized dedicated factory presets for using DZR and DXS XLF Series in combination. Users can easily transfer saved settings to a USB flash drive.
D-CONTOUR is an intelligent multi-band compressor that ensures your DZR’s sound stays consistent and clear no matter how hard you drive them. By constantly monitoring the output of multiple frequency bands and applying the optimum EQ adjustments for each, even the highest output levels maintain outstanding clarity and musicality.
A perfect complement to the DZR’s versatile cabinet design, D-CONTOUR provides two different settings, FOH/MAIN or MONITOR mode, offering more detailed tuning of your sound relative to your PA’s configuration. FOH/MAIN mode boosts the lower frequencies to compensate for low end that is typically missing when speakers are used in suspended applications or mounted on a speaker stand. MONITOR mode is optimized for floor monitoring application by taming down problematic low frequencies that can be enhanced by floor reflection, and smoothinga wide range of frequencies to deliver the clarity professionals demand from their stage monitors. Both of these presets were perfected by performing countless listening tests with skilled sound engineers to ensure consistent sound with low distortion at any output level.
One of the advantages of active loudspeakers is that the combination of transducers and amplifiers can be perfectly matched and optimized for the best possible performance. During the development of the DZR and DXS XLF Series, we measured and tested the durability of each transducer and the overall amplifier output to set optimal limiter points for each model using precise DSP control. Employing many of the same protection functions used in our high-end professional power amplifiers, our state-of-the-art DSP consistently monitors the status of the power supply, power amplifiers, transducers, and signal levels, to protect each component in order to maintain optimum performance while extending component life and usability.
All DZR speakers and DXS XLF subwoofers come in Dante-equipped “D” models enabling smart system integration with Yamaha consoles and other Dante devices via the Dante I/O (2in/2out) which also features SRC (sample rate conversion) allowing 48kHz device compatibility.
Patching is simplified considerably with Yamaha CL/QL digital mixing consoles from the I/O device display, while TF console users can select Quick Config for surprisingly fast, easy set up and operation of a sophisticated sound reinforcement system. Combining the Analog I/O with Dante I/O, opens up flexible routing and system configuration options, while the Dante break-IN and break-OUT function add even more flexibility by acting as a simple I/O box. What’s more, Yamaha’s customizable control panel software “ProVisionare Control” for windows and “ProVisionare Touch” for iPad are also Dante compatible, adding more simple remote management of your sound reinforcement system.
DZR15, DZR12 and DZR10 speakers feature a rotatable horn to allow vertical or horizontal mounting to further adapt to the acoustic dimensions of a venue. The coverage angle of the DZR15 is 90×50° and the DZR12 and DZR10 have 90×60° dispersion from a vertical position. The constant directivity horns were designed with the goal of providing smooth, level coverage across the intended coverage area, minimizing roll-off that is common in conventional horn designs.
The cabinets are constructed from a high grade 15mm thick plywood then painted with an extremely durable, military grade Polyurea coating. The enclosures of the full-range speakers also feature butterfly joints for added strength and cabinet vibration reduction, as well as a wide, flare-shaped port that helps to minimize port noise even at very high output levels. The enclosure design for the DZR15, DZR12 and each of their Dante models, enables mirror-mode monitor placement that produces a symmetrical sound field for the performer, creating a larger, more defined “sweet spot” than conventional monitoring configurations. (DZR10 / DZR10-D are asymmetric.) Used in either a balanced dual-mono configuration or a stereo monitor mix setup, mirror-mode floor monitoring can enhance your playing and performance considerably.
