Designed to fit the budgets of performing musicians, DJs, houses of worship, schools, and small- to medium-sized venues, the BR Series loudspeakers from Yamaha Professional Audio comprise five models developed for mobile and permanent applications.
“Although the ‘BR’ prefix was chosen to represent bass reflex, it is also very appropriate for describing the line’s advanced feature set,” commented Wayne Hrabak, marketing manager at Yamaha Professional Audio. “This series offers products that have the full frequency response and high output found in more costly systems. It’s built right, has better response and the best reliability.”
The BR Series has been engineered for the best balance of easy-to-handle cabinet sizes great low-frequency response using bass reflex technology. The series includes 10-inch (BR10, MSRP $249), 12-inch (BR12, $279) and 15-inch (BR15, $329) two-way enclosures, plus 12-inch and 15-inch floor monitors (BR12M, $299; and BR15M, $339).
High-frequency response has been enhanced with the addition of new Titanium drivers and 90°x40° nonresonant horns, while integrated protection circuitry built into the passive crossover ensures a long life of high output and minimal distortion. Power handling is rated at maximums of 400 to 800W, dependent upon model.
Constructed using advanced computer-controlled woodworking at Yamaha Music Manufacturing in Thomaston, Ga., BR cabinets include carpeted exterior finishes; heavy gauge, full-face perforated steel grilles; steel corner protectors; large metal handles; and steel input panels with dual 1/4-inch connectors. In addition, all cabinets (including monitors) contain built-in pole-mounting sockets for added flexibility.
