Product Description

Much of the work in putting together a high-performance sound system involves amplifier and speaker selection and setup. Here are a pair of solutions that can take you directly to great sound without the usual complications. The Yamaha MSR400 powered speaker can be used alone or in combination with the MSR800W powered subwoofer to assemble sound reinforcement systems from modest to massive. They look great, too. So good, in fact, that they can be used as-is in many permanent installations without requiring any cosmetic cover-up. And, of course, they're more than rugged enough for demanding tour applications as well.

Ready for the Road

Whether for use on the road or in permanent installations, powered speakers offer numerous advantages over their separate counterparts. The most obvious is that you don't need separate external amplifiers or the extra connections required -- you can plug your mixer's outputs directly into the speaker inputs. In a modest-size system this alone can eliminate an entire rack of amplifiers. But there are sonic advantages as well. Optimum matching of amplifiers and speakers involves much more than simple impedance figures, and can be a formidable engineering task given the vast number of choices available. In the Yamaha MSR400 and MSR800W the internal amplifiers have been ideally mated to their respective speakers in every way possible, delivering reproduction quality that only such stringent matching can achieve.

Perfect for the Yamaha MSR400

The Yamaha MSR800W powered subwoofer is the perfect companion for the MSR400, extending the low end and completing the musical spectrum for maximum punch and impact. The high-quality birch plywood bass-reflex cabinet houses a 15" cone woofer powered by an ultra-efficient burst 800 watts amplifier, a configuration that can deliver the elusive 40 Hz through 120 Hz frequency range with precision and authority. Two balanced XLR connectors are provided for connection to the source, and that same signal can be directly passed on to the main speakers via a pair of XLR "thru" outputs. Alternatively, the main speakers can be fed by the MSR800W's dual "high pass" outputs, high-pass filtered at 80 Hz through 100 Hz, depending on the setting of the cutoff frequency control, with a steep 18 dB/octave cutoff slope.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (59 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "NEVER BUY THESE!!!!!"
Sound: I bought 2 of them in July, 2006....not bad sounding---when they work Feature: had volume, adjustable crossover, integrated polemount---all were fine----except that one of the polemount sockets broke apart from the mounting plate after 30 months Ease of Use: never seemed to push enough air without bass enhancement processors Quality: besides the polemount socket falling apart, my band went through 6--YES SIX---warranty speaker replacements, and when the 3 year warranty expired, we had to replace them again, but upgraded the speakers in August 2009, and haven't had to replace them since.....so basically, in 36 months of ownership, we replaced a speaker once every 6 months. And we play small clubs----my main speakers are powered at most by 500 watts per side with no problems, so we definitely never had the mixing board set at 10. Of course now, at month 46 of ownership, one of the amps fried this past weekend (June 2010) Value: hindsight is 20-20, but if I had to do it over again, I would never had spent one cent on these Manufacturer Support: I was never able to get any help when calling customer service in CA, and never got any return e-mails when trying to take that route, either. Plus, it took, on average, about 2-3 months for my local authorized warranty repair shop to receive a replacement every time we needed a speaker replaced under the warranty....a total joke. The Wow Factor: the flimsy grills are always beat looking Overall: WOULD NEVER, EVER BUY THESE AGAIN!!!! the original speakers couldn't handle the 500 watt internal amp with hteir 800 watt "burst". Whoever designed these probably got a b ig raise from Yamaha for getting a product out there with an $800 price tag that was made from trash.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Boat anchor"
Sound: Yamaha usually has good sounding gear, but I returned this without even playing through it because.................read more. Feature: Has what it needs. Ease of Use: Like any powered speaker, easy. Quality: Too akward in shape and at 100lbs, need 2 people to haul. The finish is a textured black, but the matching mains are grey and smooth and that simply does not match. Value: Price is fair, but rather pay $150 more for QSC K-sub for portabiliy. Manufacturer Support: Don't know. The Wow Factor: No appeal as is just a heavey box that doesn't resemblr the MSR400s I own. Overall: Returned asap.
