Superior Audio Quality with Titanium HF Drivers
The BR series speakers were developed and are produced in the USA to carry on the proven audio quality and reliability of Yamaha’s acclaimed Concert Club series. Using parts and components carefully selected for audio quality and reliability, Yamaha has optimized critical design parameters to achieve astounding sound at a very affordable price. In particular, the excellent low-frequency response produced by the bass-reflex system and the broad 90° x 40° high-frequency coverage provided by the titanium-dome horn tweeter are the result of painstaking tuning that achieves an outstanding balance between portability and size.
Ideal for EMX Series Powered Mixers and P Series Power Amps
The BR series speakers provide dual phone jacks for input and parallel connection. You can set up a simple but high-performance PA system just by connecting a pair of these speakers to an EMX series powered mixer. Or you could use BR series speakers in conjunction with P series power amplifiers and an MG series mixing console to create a range of very versatile live sound systems. The YSP (Yamaha Speaker Processing) switch provided on EMX series mixers and P series amplifiers can be used to achieve optimum matching for significantly enhanced sound.
Simple but Sophisticated Design
The BR series carries on the simple yet sophisticated design of the Concert Club series. The front grille has been enhanced in terms of both design and durability. In addition to a carpeted finish, the tough exterior features steel corner protectors and heavy duty metal handles for improved portability. The BR series was designed for the rigors of daily use in a portable sound reinforcement system.
Speaker Stand Pole Socket on All Models
All models – front as well as foldback – feature pole sockets for use with speaker stands. These units will fit on standard 1-3/8 inch (35 mm) diameter speaker stands for easy positioning in a wide range of applications.
