Be proud to be loud! The Yamaha DBR15 Powered Loudspeaker is a smart choice for bands or DJs looking to make an impressive audio impact in a road-worthy enclosure.

The most portable powered loudspeaker Yamaha has to offer, the Yamaha DBR15 packs a huge punch in a lightweight and durable, 42-pound plastic cabinet. It also harnesses the same state-of-the-art Yamaha DSP and amplifier and speaker technologies developed for the professional DSR/DXR Series lineups, so you know you can faithfully rely on it, show after show and night after night.

Under its hood is an integrated 1,000 watt, bi-amped Class D power amp that pairs perfectly with everything from Top 40 to rock to electronica and more. But regardless of the genre of music you push through its high powered, 15" custom designed woofer and 1.4" precision compression driver, the DBR15 will be sure to get the joint jumpin', plus it also pulls double duty when it has to with its built-in, two-channel mixer that allows for input from mic/line level inputs or CD players or other stereo line-level sources; perfect for those smaller ensembles or gigs.

So whether you need to upgrade your front-of house system, need a wedge floor monitoring system or a rigged application via its M8 rigging threads, the Yamaha DBR15 is the workhorse powerhouse you can count on to sound great, gig after gig.

Features:
  • High-efficiency, 1000W Class-D amplifier / 132dB SPL
  • Custom designed 15" woofer
  • 1.4" precision compression driver
  • Easy-to-use, onboard 2-channel mixer
  • Smart enclosure design for floor monitoring

    Incredible speakers for their price! Great crisp and clear sound with sufficient thump! These are great for any band that needs a little more push behind their sound, DJs for smaller shows, or even band rehearsal! Highly recommend for anyone needing speakers, Yamaha delivers!

        Comments about Yamaha Dbr15 15" 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

        This speaker is one of the most versatile I've used in years. Used as a pair, these speakers provide enough sound to overpower a full orchestra or project sound across an auditorium. I've used these extensively in marching bands and jazz ensembles for performance review and projection for smaller amplifiers.

          Comments about Yamaha Dbr15 15" 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

          There are more than a few 1000w speakers on the market, but I dare anyone to find a 15" with this kind of power and clarity... oh, and for the excellent value offered here. This is great for indoor venues where you need portability but without sacrificing the volume needed to cut through the crowds. This is the awesome quality we've come to expect from a Yamaha speaker.

              With everyone coming out with 1000w amps today, it was only a matter of time before Yamaha trucked in with an amazing speaker. At 1000 watts, I find this to be perfect for a lot of my gigs and the 15 inch speaker definitely as a nice bass punch to it. Super happy with these.

                This lightweight speaker really sets the bar. It sounds great and has all the features a singer songwriter or dj would need. The sound quality is amazing and the lows and highs are crisp.
