Powerful DSP

Ensuring you get the best possible audio at all times, the DXS18XLF features powerful D-XSUB LF processing with three different modes.

Using NORMAL mode, the DXS18XLF will be set for ideally balanced low-frequency response while BOOST mode gives you a tighter, more focused bass sound which packs an extra punch.

Last, but not least, is XTENDED LF mode which brings the low-end frequencies down even further for some seriously chest-thumping, rib-rattling bottom end, delivering low frequencies that you just don’t find in cabinets of this size.

New Proprietary Transducers

The secret to achieving such impressive low frequency response it the new Yamaha proprietary transducers which comprise of a durable die cast aluminium frame and 4” voice coil.

A dual dumper is also in use, helping to control the low frequencies and eliminated unwanted vibration.

Combined, the result is fantastic audio, even at the most extreme output levels.
