Housed in a sturdy band-pass enclosure, the custom built 18" driver with a large 4-inch voice coil and a Class-D amplifier delivers 1020W of power with exceptional clarity and accuracy.

Great bass sound speaks for itself. Period.

If you like your bass prominent and powerful, DXS Series high-output, powered subwoofers will ensure your bottom-heavy audio is heard loud and clear. Featuring high-efficiency Class-D amplifiers and a customized woofer housed in a sturdy plywood band-pass enclosure, DXS subwoofers are capable of delivering up to an impressive 1020W of distortion-free power with supreme clarity. The lineup features the acclaimed DXS18 and recently upgraded versions of the 15" and 12" models, the DXS15mkII and DXS12mkII, which have adopted technologies and features from the DXS18 for an added professional edge and boost in performance. All feature Yamaha's state-of-the-art DSP, protection functions, and flexible crossover control allowing for seamless compatibility with Yamaha's vast lineup of full-range speakers, and reliable management of your bottom end. We've worked tirelessly to develop subwoofers with this level of versatility, dependability, and power because for Yamaha, great bass is serious business. Make it your business too.

Yamaha DXS18 18" Active Subwoofer Key Features:

Feel the Power
DXS Series were made for audio engineers and bass fanatics who demand consistent high-quality sound for their live performances or DJ events- even when it's cranked to the maximum SPL.

High-Efficiency 1020W Class-D Amplifiers
The DXS's high-performance Class-D amplifier is capable of producing up to 1020W of power, and a maximum SPL of 136dB, delivered with exceptional clarity and accuracy. Both the DXS15mkII and DXS12mkII can produce 3dB more SPL than previous models.

Custom Designed Transducer
The high-output woofer of DXS18 features a 4" voice coil magnet and delivers powerful, well-defined, low-frequency bass with minimal distortion. The DXS12mkII and DXS15mkII both feature 2.5" voice coil magnets.

Band-Pass Type Enclosure
All DXS Series enclosures incorporate a band-pass design to reduce unwanted vibrations and noise that could otherwise sabotage your sound. We've also designed a very durable plywood enclosure which, when combined with the band-pass configuration, tested better than the traditional bass-reflex design and reduced distortion considerably, making it possible to achieve a higher SPL.

Durable, Portable, and Road-Ready.
Ergonomic and compatible features just made your system setup and transport a whole lot easier.

Rugged coating for superior protection
Enclosure exteriors feature a durable Polyurea coating with extremely high damage resistance to protect the cabinet from scratches, bumps, or severe weather conditions, maintaining a professional appearance for years to come.

Compact and portable design enclosure
Just as impressive as the high output at their disposal is the compact portability and lightweight construction that houses the DXS Series' awesome power. The DXSmkII models in particular have shed 2kg and 3kg compared to their 15" and 12" predecessors respectively, making it easier than ever to load up, set up, or tear down your PA.

You Have Assumed Control
With all this power at your disposal it's a comfort to have Yamaha's own innovative DSP and control options to ensure your performances are executed exactly as you planned.

Cardioid Mode
Because low frequencies can be omnidirectional, controlling the output directivity of a system's bottom end can be a challenge, with the sound pressure hitting the stage often being equal to that of its intended FOH audience. For setups consisting of two or more DXS subwoofers, selecting the newly developed Cardioid Mode effectively decreases stage-side sound pressure while increasing the bottom-end output directed towards the audience, resulting in a cleaner stage monitoring environment and a more pronounced bass experience for the audience.

D-XSUB Bass Processing
Powerful D-XSUB processing gives you total control of your low frequency. NORMAL mode gives you the ideally balanced low-frequency response, while BOOST mode provides a tighter and more focused bass. XTENDED LF mode drops the low-end frequencies down even further for thunderous bottom end that delivers a low frequency extension unheard of from smaller cabinets. Take your full-range system to the next level with the power and versatility of DXS Series active subwoofers.

Selectable X-OVER (80/100/120Hz)
Crossover switching allows users to seamlessly match DXS subwoofers with any of Yamaha's full-range powered speakers by selecting the cutoff frequency best suited to the models in their speaker array (up to 120Hz).
