The Yamaha DBR12 represents a perfect balance of size and performance, with 1000W of power and outstanding resolution at any output level.

Wherever your music may take you, DBR Series loudspeakers are up to the task of delivering powerful, high-quality sound with an un-matched economy of transport and setup time. Ideal for front-of-house, floor monitoring applications or even the stage side fills, the DBR12 is an ideal choice for a wide range of applications.  

The most portable powered loudspeakers Yamaha has to offer, the versatile DBR Series harnesses the same state-of-the-art Yamaha DSP and amplifier and speaker technologies developed for the professional DSR Series and DXR Series lineups, ensuring high-resolution sound at any output level.

Each DBR loudseaker is housed in a newly designed, durable, lightweight cabinet optimized for FOH sound, floor-monitoring and even rigged applications. Whether you're powering your band’s live performance, DJ-ing a party, or MC-ing an event, be prepared for DBR Series speakers to take your performance to the next level.

High-Efficiency 1000W Class-D Amplifiers
The DBR's lightweight, high performance Class-D amplifier is capable of producing up to 700W of power, achieving an SPL of 132dB, delivered with remarkable clarity and dynamic characteristics.

Custom Designed Transducer
The high power output woofers deliver well-defined, powerful bass with minimal distortion, while the 1" precision compression driver produces accurate mid-range and high frequencies.

A Rugged, Highly Portable Cabinet
DBR Series speakers feature a compact, lightweight, and durable plastic cabinet which offers the highest level of portability of all Yamaha powered speakers. The sleek steel grille bolsters cabinet durability and protects the internal components while a newly designed ergonomic handles provide effortless transportation and system setup.

Easy-to-use Onboard 2-Channel Mixer
DBR Series speakers have two input channels. CH1 has a combo jack which accepts both XLR and TRS Phone allowing for either Mic or Line level input signals. CH2 offers two input options; a combo jack that accepts XLR or TRS Phone, and an RCA pin jack for input from CD players or other stereo line-level sources. The onboard mixer allows you to select either CH1+2 MIX to mix the signal of CH1 and CH2, or CH1 THRU to pass the signal from CH1 only.

Smart Enclosure Design for Floor Monitoring
DBR Series speakers feature an optimized 50°wedge angle for floor monitoring. In addition the DBR12 and DBR15's symmetrical shape allows for effortless configuration of a mirror-mode floor monitoring system in either symmetrical or stereo sound field setups.

Rigging Points for Installation Applications
DBR loudspeakers come equipped with M8 rigging threads, allowing for rigged applications with optional speaker brackets or standardized eye-bolts (speaker brackets and eye-bolts are not included).

Great Speaker

By 

from Clinton, NJ

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Great sound, smooth bass
  • Just the right Dimension and weight
  • very low noise

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Live Sound, personal monitor, practice amp

    Comments about Yamaha Dbr12 12" 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

    you can't even tell if you turned the speaker on - no big noise or pop sound. I use it as personal monitor to play guitar and bass. Clean guitar sounds real clean and Bass sounds deep rich and natural. Having done way too many comparing to other make and models and youtube-ing - I am glad I settled on to this speaker that sounds natural and makes me feel good. It just what I wanted. I have plans to get one more.

    An outstanding loud speaker for the price

    By 

    from North Louisiana

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Excellent Sound
    • Great Reliability
    • Oustanding factory warranty if purchased new.

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Small to Medium Venue PA

      Comments about Yamaha Dbr12 12" 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

      These speakers are great. I prefer them to QSC for two reasons: One, the sound is warmer. QSC's sound great, but the Yamaha has a warmer sound to them. Second, if you buy new, the factory warranty can't be beat.

      Honestly, I don't think there's a better speaker out there for the price, and it is just as good as speakers costing nearly twice as much.

            Comments about Yamaha Dbr12 12" 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

            This speaker is absolutely fantastic. A good number of local church groups tend to favor these for their amazing sound and great overhead for multiple singers and instrumentalists. Having use these in smaller auditoriums and concert halls, I think these speakers are some of the best you can get at the price.

              Comments about Yamaha Dbr12 12" 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

              It's not too hard to find a powerful and clear sounding monitor, that is until you start looking for something portable that won't break your back... and your pocketbook! For the price, this is a stunning monitor. The clarity can't be matched for 12" monitor and makes it ideal for playing small venues where you need to really cut through the noise and be heard.

              Affordable speaker from Yamaha!

              By 

              from King of Prussia, PA

              Staff Reviewer

              Comments about Yamaha Dbr12 12" 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

              Yamaha is a brand that has long been associated with quality, but not always affordability. Finally, Yamaha has produced a speaker that appeals to every musician's wallet. The DBR series of powered speakers packs a lot of punch into an affordable pa cabinet. This speaker is perfect for DJ and live sound applications and comes highly recommended! This is a real hands on product review from Ryan@ Sam Ash King of Prussia.
