By PSW Staff • June 14, 2017 Yamaha's new VXS1L Series Yamaha‘s new VXL1 Series of slim column array loudspeakers have made their official debut during InfoComm 2017 at booth #6360 along with the recently announced VXS1ML compact loudspeaker and VXS3S sub. All three products, and a set of installation accessories join the Yamaha Commercial Audio Solutions (CIS) product line. The new VXL1 Series is compact and capable of delivering sound quality in small commercial spaces such as retail stores and malls, corporate offices, educational institutions, and just about anywhere sonic quality for speech is a necessity but where pattern control is required. The new Yamaha VXL1 Series can provide flexible coverage adjustments. For example, units can connect vertically for deeper coverage, and side by side to tighten horizontal dispersion. The VXL1-8 covers 40 degrees in the vertical plane, while the VXL1-16 and VXL1-24 models can be easily switched between 20 and 30 degrees of vertical coverage by way of a single switch on the rear of the speaker. The lineup includes six models of different size and color, plus options that allow flexible setup in a wide range of environments. Its slim design easily blends with interior décor without disrupting the visual appeal of any space. “The VXS and VXC CIS products have become staples in distributed audio environments such as retail and hospitality,” states Marc Lopez, director of marketing CA products, Yamaha Professional Audio. “We constantly strive to provide our contractors with the tools they need, and by adding the very slim, high-quality VXL1 column array, compact VX1ML speaker and VSX3S sub, we continue to meet the needs of their applications with a strong aesthetic appeal.” The VXS1ML and VXS3S are ideal choices for environments where relaxing, natural-sounding BGM reproduction is the goal. These new loudspeakers feature compact enclosures designed with flowing lines that will blend unobtrusively with any type of interior décor. The VXS1ML features a newly developed 1.5-inch full-range driver unit with a neodymium magnet and other refinements, delivers sonic quality despite its size. It offers wide 170° horizontal and vertical dispersion so large spaces can be efficiently served by a relatively small number of loudspeakers. The VXS3S subwoofer employs Yamaha’s own SR-Bass technology and achieves natural bass reproduction in a compact enclosure. The VXS3S supports both low- and high-impedance connections to ideally serve the scale and purpose of a variety of systems. It also includes satellite connectors that allow convenient, direct connection to the VXS1ML or other full-range loudspeakers such as the Yamaha VXS3F, minimizing the number of amplifier channels required. A built-in crossover is automatically applied when the satellite connectors are used, providing smooth frequency transition from the subwoofer to full-range speakers.
