Club Series V
Gigging bands, mobile DJs and houses of worship have helped make the first four
generations of Yamaha Club Series Speakers incredibly popular. The refinements
of generation V continue this success story: larger enclosures for improved
low-frequency performance, improved drivers for higher power handling,
redesigned crossovers, stronger grilles, and dual Speakon® and ¼" connectors.
- Once again, with professional features, excellent sonic performance and great
value, Club Series loudspeakers deliver premium quality night after night.
Yamaha has a long history of both making and reproducing music. The Club series
V loudspeakers represent the latest in our continuing effort to provide the
professional features and sound quality you've come to expect and deserve.
Built in the United States, these loudspeakers are designed to provide years of
service. high power handling and excellent response have made Club Series
loudspeakers the perfect choice for more than 16 years. Whether playing in a
band, DJing, orupgrading the sound system at your church or school, with an
expanded lineup of over twenty models to choose from, you're sure to find the
right loudspeaker. Have a look at what goes into their construction –
- Cabinets are constructed of high quality particleboard, chosen for its
high strength and elasticity, consistent void free makeup and light weight.
Another great benefit of this material is its environmental friendliness.
Made from southern yellow pine, this material is both abundant and quickly
renewable. Accurate CNC routing machines are used to cut every part,
assuring consistency with tolerances of one ten thousandth of an inch.
Skilled technicians assemble each cabinet by hand, rejecting any defects.
Whether covered in durable carpet or the elastomeric spray coating, heavy
steel handles and sturdy pole sockets make moving and positioning easy.
- The drivers, or speakers in these cabinets, are custom made my Eminence
Speaker Corporation® to Yamaha's exacting tolerances. Woofers share design
features like high strength curvilinear cones and Dupont Kapton™ voice coil
formers. Oxygen-free copper voice coils and oversize strontium ferrite
magnets are also used to provide high power handling and long life. The 15"
and 18" drivers use cast aluminum frames to support the massive magnet
structure, eliminate flex and help dissipate heat. The compression driver
that generates the high frequency sound uses a pure titanium diaphragm. This
2" dome is one of the largest in its class, allowing for very high output
and low distortion, without the aid of cooling fluids. It's mated to a 90° x
40° custom designed CD (constant directivity) horn with excellent dispersion
- Crossover networks that divide the signal going to the woofer and
compression driver are constructed with oversized coils, high voltage
capacitors, and power resistors designed to provide the best possible sound
quality and minimize loss. Overload protection is also included to protect
- Connections on these loudspeakers are dual Neutrik Speakon® ¼ jacks for
the highest possible strength and current capacity. Two of each connector
makes it easy to "daisy chain," or add speakers.
Club Series V loudspeakers with the S prefix have rugged carpet covering and
steel corner protectors to hold up to the rigors of transport. Heavy arced steel
grilles offer protection for the woofer. Models are available for any
application from small speech reinforcement to very high output dance
