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.

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

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.

Great Speakers


I bought these speakers so that I wouldn't have to carry around two HEAVY speakers and am amp around anymore. Best decision I ever made. They are light in comparison, and they sound fantastic. That, coupled with a 7 year warranty (be sure to register yours with the good folks at Yamaha) and GREAT customer service from Sam Ash makes this an excellent buy.

Great Speaker


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


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.

Yamaha for the win!


The built in controls make this speaker incredibly useful for any scenario! No matter what you need out of it, it will deliver! The DSP allows you to switch from Main to Monitor effortlessly. Highly recommended! This is a real hands-on review from Kris @ Sam Ash Cincinnati

Quality on the Cheap


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.

Portable & Powerful


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!


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!
