Product information - Yamaha CHR12M

Yamaha CHR12M

Yamaha introduces the DHR and CHR, two new series of three active and three passive sound reinforcement loudspeakers respectively, positioned between the entry-level DBR/CBR series and the high-end DZR/CZR line, delivering professional results without breaking the budget.

With three models of varying sizes, the new CHR - Series has the right speaker for every conceivable application: a 10" model for fixed installations and utilities, a 12" model for use as a floor monitor, and a 15" version for FOH applications - all with carefully selected custom transducers. Combined with practical features tailored to specific applications, the series gives you the flexibility to choose the ideal loudspeaker for a variety of sound environments.


  • Coaxial driver delivers precise, smooth phase and frequency response characteristics ideal for monitoring applications
  • Plywood enclosure delivers clear sound with minimal vibration
  • Compact, low-profile plywood enclosure with a polyurea coating for a tough, scratch-resistant finish
  • A high stand flange for use on a tripod
  • Yamaha DSP-equipped amplifiers or other compatible signal processors have special settings for the speaker processor to maximize system performance
Yamaha CHR12M

Yamaha CHR12M

The CHR12M is a 2-way passive loudspeaker featuring a 12" bass driver and a 1.75" HF driver in a space-saving coaxial configuration perfect for use as a floor monitor. Combining carefully selected and matched transducers with the same plywood construction used in Yamaha's high-end CZR speaker series, the CHR12M delivers premium sound quality and durability.

Not only does it fill the gap between the largest and smallest models in Yamaha's new speaker series, but it also sorgt provides even more flexibility. As Yamaha's first dedicated floor monitor, the CHR12M impresses with distortion-free and always perfectly phase-true levels of up to 123 dB, despite its low profile.

CHR loudspeakers and PX power amplifiers: Yamaha through and through

Although the CHR models will perform well with any power amplifier, the ultimate performance boost comes from pairing them with Yamaha PX amplifiers - a combination that represents Yamaha engineering expertise from start to finish. The PX3, PX5, PX8 and PX10 feature powerful Class D amplification with Yamaha's newly developed LSI chip, plus extensive DSP functions for room equalisation and system setups with subwoofers. The user does not even have to worry about adequate DSP programming: PX power amplifiers have specially adapted setups for CHR speakers directly on board and thus sorgen for a perfect adjustment without any programming effort - for legendary Yamaha sound directly out-of-the-box.

Ready for the Road

Yamaha, a leading manufacturer of professional sound reinforcement equipment for over fifty years, knows that the rigours of the road are not for the faint-hearted. That's why the new DHR/CHR loudspeakers were designed with maximum roadability and ruggedness in mind. The cabinets are made of solid plywood with an extremely resistant polyurea coating and sorgen together with the sturdy speaker grilles ensure that the powerful speakers can withstand even hard impacts without complaint. All models of the CHR/DHR series are equipped with high stand flanges, CHR15 and DHR15 are furthermore equipped with professional flying points.
