June 15, 2022 - Yamaha's new VXH series combines high quality music reproduction with exceptional design, bringing enhanced audio to a wide range of commercial spaces where pendant speakers are the preferred solution.
Delivering superior sound in many larger retail, hospitality, entertainment and corporate premises can be a challenge with conventional surface mount or in-ceiling speakers. Pendant speakers are often a better solution, delivering more localised sound to reduce the issues of reverberation, unwanted reflections and the resulting lower-quality audio, which speakers located further away from the listener can cause.
Suitable for high, open structure and sloped ceilings, the VXH series comprises two models, the VXH6 and VXH8, engineered for optimum background music and voice reproduction.
Featuring a 120º dispersion pattern, the 6.5-inch VXH6 has a peak power handling of 300W and is designed for use where the speakers are to be suspended at a relatively low level. The eight-inch VXH8 has a narrower dispersion pattern of 75º and a higher peak power output of 360W, for higher suspended positions. You can mix and match both models, as well as with other speakers in the comprehensive Yamaha range, to achieve the best sound and coverage for any application.
Weighing just 5.7kg and 7.2kg respectively, The VXH6 and VXH8 support high and low impedance connections, while the speaker wattage can be easily switched even after installation, thanks to the straightforward tap selector. This minimizes the need for additional units, letting you design systems to precisely meet the needs of a space.
VXH series speakers are IP45-rated for use in a wide range of environments, including outdoors*, and are supplied with a Gripple suspension hardware and wire kit for easy, safe height adjustment during installation.
The enclosures feature a pleasing ergonomic, low impact design, the compact circular shape making them less visibly intrusive from below. Both models are supplied in either black or white finish, the magnetic speaker grille has a contoured profile and is paintable to match any interior décor.
Both models can be used to create bespoke installations for a wide range of spaces, from the high open structure ceilings of warehouse stores and distribution centres, to spaces with sloped ceilings like amusement facilities, gymnastic halls and design-conscious environments like clothing stores, larger restaurants and more.
