Ceiling speakers for any application
The VXC Series offers three different woofer sizes, allowing you to choose the speaker that is most suitable for your venue. Each model has an internal transformer that allows both high and low-impedance drive with just a single speaker, simply by switching the tap on the baffle. Since a single speaker can be used for both operations, inventory control is simplified, and you can easily adapt your system to any changes.
Safe, seamless installation
Series speakers’ Anti-Drop tab allows them to be mounted temporarily in the ceiling, freeing your hands for better safety and ease of installation. An attached, flexible carrying band also makes the speakers very portable, allowing you to carry multiple speakers at once safely. Additionally, VXC Series speakers also come complete with O-rings and tile rails for a safer, smoother installation.
Pursuing the best sound for installation
Yamaha developed the VXC and VXS Series speakers to address a demand in the installation market for speakers capable of providing superb music reproduction as well as crystal clear announcements for public address applications. Both series feature newly customized transducers with large, powerful magnetic circuits that increase driving and braking force substantially, as well as dedicated tweeter diaphragms and speaker cone paper made from a carefully-created blend of materials that help optimize sound reproduction. Cabinets are built tough to meet the demands of a wide variety of commercial environments, constructed from a carefully selected plastic with just the right tensile strength, and designed with optimized bass-reflex tuning to offer a firm, tight low-end. From the networking components and the materials used for wiring and soldering, right down to the optimal placement of acoustic absorption material, a great deal of attention has been paid to even the smallest details of the series’ design.
Several aspects of these speakers’ design reflect a strong emphasis on functionality as well as the aesthetic features of their construction—effectively enhancing sound quality and speaker performance without disturbing the interior décor of the installation. This concept is evident in the hexagonal design featured on the grille of both series’ speakers that actually improves sound clarity by raising the aperture ratio. Similarly, the smooth curves of the surface-mount cabinet’s simple yet sophisticated design allow the speakers to be mounted closely to the wall—while still fully capable of panning and tilting to target service areas. Even the innovative design of the VXC’s tweeter improves sound clarity by providing unrestricted woofer movement.
