When choosing reference monitors for mixing and music production, accuracy is essential. Speakers that sound “good” on first impression may not necessarily be accurate. What you really need is an honest reference for your mix rather than monitors that have been tweaked or colored to deceptively sound impressive. The new HS-series reference monitors have been created by Yamaha’s studio monitor engineering team to deliver exceptionally flat, accurate response that you can trust. Unlike “monitor” speakers with exaggerated bass and treble that make a good first impression but can't be relied on for accuracy, the HS series were designed to be true studio reference monitors in the tradition of the legendary Yamaha NS10M. The HS80M is capable of handling a good range of frequencies by itself or as part of a setup including the HS10W Subwoofer (to increase the bass range and accuracy). Please note that speakers are sold as individual units and two should be purchased to make a stereo pair (5 for a 5.1 surround system etc). • Type: Biamp 2-way Powered speaker • Crossover Frequency: 2 kHz • Overall Frequency: 42 Hz—20 kHz (-10 dB) • Speaker Components: LF: 8" cone (Magnetic shielding Type), HF: 1" Dome (Magnetic shielding Type) • Enclosure Type: Bass-reflex Type • Material: MDF • Output Power: Total: 120 W (dynamic power) (LF: 75 W, 4 Ω) (HF: 45 W, 8 Ω) • Input Sensitivity/ Impedance: -10 dBu/10 kΩ • Input Connectors (parallel): 1: XLR-3-31 type (balanced), 2: PHONE (balanced) • Controls: LEVEL control (+4 dB/center click), LOW CUT switch (FLAT/80/100 Hz, 12 dB/octave), EQ: MID (+/- 2 dB at 2 kHz), HIGH (+/- 2 dB at HF), ROOM CONTROL (0/-2/-4 dB under 500 Hz) • Indicator: Power ON: White LED • Power Consumption: 60 W
