Despite its lightweight and compact cabinet construction, the DXL1K features a high-output 1100 W amplifier powering a high-frequency array speaker system with 10 x 1.5” drivers and a large 12” subwoofer, producing best-in-class sound pressure levels of up to 125 dB SPL. Offering an impressive 170 Degrees horizontal and 30 Degrees vertical coverage, the DXL1K delivers clear, high-quality sound consistently throughout a wide area.

The DXL1K is an innovative column-style powered speaker system that is capable of filling a wide area with high-quality and uniform sound, lightweight enough to be easily carried by anyone, simple enough to set up in about one minute, and durable enough to wIt’stand harsh environments.

J-Curve Slim Line Array
The high-frequency speaker array is comprised of 10 small-diameter 1.5” speakers. By adopting a J-curve array configuration, the high-frequency unit achieves vertical coverage of 30 Degrees across a span of 170 Degrees. With such a long, 10-driver array design the DXL1K can deliver clear, high-quality sound consistently over longer distances, projecting uniform, high-quality sound from the front to the rear of the audience.

Simple setup
Simply place the 2 spacers and speaker unit into the subwoofer and setup is essentially done, with no cables, speaker stand, or additional gear required beyond the main unit. All you need is in the package.

Class-leading 12-inch “compact” subwoofer
The subwoofer features a 12-inch speaker unit which is hardly “compact,” and actually, the largest in its class. Despite housing a 12-inch speaker unit that is the largest in its class, the DXL1K boasts the smallest cabinet on the market for a subwoofer of this size and power. By incorporating Yamaha’s own Twisted Flare Port technology to reduce port wind noise that can occur with compact bass-reflex subwoofers, the low-end output is maximized, producing very deep, powerful, distortion-free bass.

Expandable STAGEPAS systems
Linking a DXL1K and STAGEPAS 1K mkII provides greater coverage area and increased output power for large-scale performances. Both stereo and mono playback are supported, and when the STAGEPAS 1K mkII is set to mono, the inputs of the DXL1K and STAGEPAS 1K mkII can still be used (up to five mono inputs plus one stereo input).

High efficiency “1100” W Class-D amplifier
Also, at the top of its class for output power, the 1100W Class-D amplifier module is capable of delivering an impressive 125 dB SPL from the deceptively compact speaker cabinet. And just as importantly, we’ve leveraged Yamaha’s decades-long experience as a manufacturer of professional PA products, and innovator of related technologies to ensure that with great power comes great stability, and that the DXL1K maintains the same accurate, superior-quality sound even at high output.

Fitted cover included
The DXL1K comes with its own cover which, in addition to protecting the unit, has pouches for both spacers and speaker array as well as additional storage for accessories to further streamline system setup and teardown.

High-grade polyurea coating
The lightweight ABS cabinet of subwoofer features a high-grade polyurea coating to prevent wear and tear during transport. It is light enough to make the system extremely portable, but also rugged and scratch-resistant enough to wIt’stand harsh performance environments.

Optional dolly (DL-SP1K) Not Included
An optional dedicated dolly allows for more convenient transportation – particularly useful for performers transporting additional gear and instruments. Featuring a simple, sturdy mechanism that locks down the speaker cover the lightweight dolly enables smooth, reliable transportation.
