The STAGEPAS 1K is an all-in-one portable PA system that allows you to quickly and easily transform any location into your stage. Delivering professional level audio performance with a setup so simple it enables aspiring artists to focus on their music and get the most out of their performances. The STAGEPAS 1K surpasses other portable PAs with the highest standard of sound quality and sound pressure, lightweight cabinet design, professional mixing functions, and simple operability. By adopting a concert-quality mixer and speaker, we have defined a new standard for portable PA by utilizing Yamaha’s unique experience and know-how developed over decades of producing innovative, professional audio equipment from every stage of music engineering and production.
Despite its lightweight and compact cabinet construction, the STAGEPAS 1K features a high-output 1000 W amplifier that drives a high-frequency array speaker with 10 x 1.5″ units and a large 12″ subwoofer, producing best-in-class sound pressure levels of up to 119 dB. An impressive 170° horizontal and 30° vertical coverage deliver clear, high-quality sound consistently throughout a wide coverage area.
The high-frequency speaker array is comprised of 10 small-diameter 1.5″ speakers. By adopting a J-curve array configuration, the high-frequency unit achieves vertical coverage of 30 ° across a span of 170 °. With such a long, 10-driver array design the STAGEPAS can deliver clear, high quality sound consistently over longer distances, projecting uniform, high-quality sound from the front to the rear of the audience.
The subwoofer features a 12-inch speaker unit which is hardly “compact,” and actually the largest in its class. However, for the STAGEPAS 1K’s new design we focused on reducing enclosure size and weight in order to improve portability, thus achieving the smallest class cabinet on the market for a subwoofer of this size and power. By incorporating Yamaha’s own Twisted Flare Port™ technology to reduce port wind noise that can occur with compact bass-reflex subwoofers, the low-end output is maximized, producing very deep, powerful, distortion-free bass.
Also at the top of its class for output power, the 1000W Class-D amplifier module is capable of delivering an impressive 119 dB SPL from the deceptively compact speaker cabinet. And just as importantly, we’ve leveraged Yamaha’s decades-long experience as a manufacturer of professional PA products, and innovator of related technologies to ensure that with great power comes great stability, and that the STAGEPAS 1K maintains the same accurate, superior-quality sound even at high output.
Yamaha has been developing innovative digital mixers for professional engineers around the world for decades. the STAGEPAS 1K’s digital mixer incorporates that wealth of expertise, featuring an intuitive UI that makes it possible to dial in otherwise complex operations with a single knob, reducing setup time and streamlining system operation and allowing users to focus on their performance.
With outstanding flexibility for a PA system of this size, the 5-channel digital mixer features three channels of mono microphone/line inputs and stereo inputs, with two of the mono input channels equipped with Hi-Z connectivity for direct input of acoustic-electric guitars and other instruments. In addition to Phone and 1/8″mini jacks, the stereo connections support playback with Bluetooth devices as well as a wide range of input sources from instruments to CDs, PCs and smartphones.
STAGEPAS 1K comes equipped with a wealth of sound shaping functions, including 1-knob EQ for optimized multi band EQ setting, industry standard SPX reverb, and the “Mode” control for master output compression settings that match various applications such as “Speech” or “Music.” Each of these functions can be set via a single knob, and have simplified many of the tough tasks like EQ and compression to get you great sound fast.
The STAGEPAS 1K is an innovative all-in-one portable PA system that is not only capable of filling a wide area with high-quality and uniform sound from just one unit, but also lightweight enough to be easily carried by anyone, simple enough to set up in about one minute, and durable enough to withstand harsh environments.
Simply place the 2 spacers and speaker unit into the subwoofer and setup is essentially done, with no cables, speaker stand, or additional gear required beyond the main unit. All you need is in the package.
The lightweight ABS cabinet of subwoofer features a high-grade polyurea coating to prevent wear and tear during transport. It is light enough to make the system extremely portable, but also rugged and scratch-resistant enough to withstand harsh performance environments.
Linking two STAGEPAS 1K’s provides wider coverage area and higher output power for larger scale performances. Both stereo and mono playback are supported, and when set to mono, both STAGEAPAS 1K inputs can still be used (up to 6 mono inputs plus 2 stereo inputs).
The STAGEPAS 1K comes with its own cover which, in addition to protecting the unit, has pouches for both spacers and speaker array as well as additional storage pockets for microphones, cables, etc., streamlining system setup and teardown.
STAGEPAS Editor is a dedicated software application that remotely controls STAGEPAS 1K parameters using your Android™ or iOS device. With STAGEPAS Editor, you can control the STAGEPAS1K mixing parameters directly from the stage or from the audience. Because you can adjust while listening to the actual mix, it is easy to balance levels and improve sound quality, while setup time is shortened by eliminating back-and-forth trips to the equipment, leaving more time for rehearsing or relaxing before the show.The scene recall feature allows you to save your settings and easily call them up for your next performance.
