Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems Inc. announces its new Installation Series subwoofer, Model IS1112 ($1,199), which is designed for smaller, full-ranged IS models.
The Yamaha IS1112W is designed to achieve naturally extended low-end response in models used for primary delivery. Yamaha states, "The Yamaha IS Speaker Series has achieved much success in installations requiring seamlessly-integrated hardware, meeting the expectations of contractors and end users requiring superior audio quality, and ease of installation and system design."
Smaller than 12-inch subwoofers from other manufacturers, the SW1112 is said to deliver outstanding sonic performance and Yamaha reliability. The subwoofer features 2,800-watt input capacity with peak 127dB sound pressure level output. A large 4-inch voice coil is used for power handling and response. The new subwoofer connects directly to full-range units without the need for special speaker cables. Discrete nominal impedance measures 8Ω with power ratings delivered at 700W (noise), 1400W (PGM), 2800W (max). Discrete sensitivity measures 93dB SPL.
“Our contracting customers have requested that we develop a lower-cost, efficient subwoofer for our smaller Installation Series Speaker models,” states Albert Cardenas, speaker product marketing manager. “We believe the new SW1112 will satisfy their requirements.”
The SW1112 offers flexible installation and includes 12 x M10 rigging points, two handles, a pole socket, NL4 and barrier strip connectors. Vibration damping rubber feet are supplied. The new sub is available in durable black or white exterior finish. Weighing in at 53 pounds, the new Yamaha sub measures 14.9x15.5x17.9 inches.
