Yamaha HS7W 6.5-Inch Powered Studio Monitor (White)
The Yamaha HS7W 6.5-Inch Powered Studio Monitor is designed to give you the most honest, precise reference possible, providing an ideal sonic platform to build on throughout the mixing process. This model brings its exceptional accuracy to an even greater variety of recording environments.
Newly Developed Transducers
It features newly developed transducers that achieve astonishingly smooth responses over a wide range of bandwidth. These transducers utilize an advanced magnetic field design that regulates the flow of magnetic response to provide seamless, natural sonic transitions. Each component's materials and design were carefully re-examined, then optimized, to drastically improve the accuracy of signal reproduction throughout the audio spectrum.
It features a newly designed, highly efficient 1-inch dome tweeter that extends the usable frequency range considerably and delivers superb high-resolution sound. Utilizing a thick wave guide designed to minimize vibration the new tweeter can deliver smooth, distortion-free high end up to 30 kHz.
With newly designed, ultra-responsive woofers that utilize large, carefully selected magnets, this monitors produces low distortion sound with a well-defined bottom end at any output level. All of the components in these high-power woofers, including the woofer ring and the basket, further contribute to the stunning bass while providing clear, accurate mids.
High-Performance Amp Unit
It employs an amplifier unit perfectly matched to the transducers utilized in each model of the series. Featuring a bi-amp design with a separate dedicated amp for both the woofer and the tweeter, this amplifier unit ensures that this speaker consistently delivers high-resolution sound with an exceptionally flat response across the sound spectrum.
Low Resonance Enclosure Design
The cabinet is designed to eliminate unwanted resonance and increase the accuracy of sound reproduction to its extreme limit. The enclosures are constructed from a very dense and resilient MDF with a damped acoustic response that is perfectly suited for reference monitors. Drawing from Yamaha's over 100 years of piano design experience, HS Series engineers also employed a traditional three-way mitered-joint technique. Common to architectural design this construction firmly anchors the corners of the enclosure to dramatically improve durability and eliminate unwanted resonance that can influence overall sound.
Cutting Edge Noise Reduction Technology
Speaker port design can greatly influence the clarity of overall sound. Often a vortex at either end of the port can generate air vibrations inside of the port, causing unwanted noise. By adopting an advanced noise reduction technology that incorporates a thorough analysis of a visual representation of the sound, Yamaha's engineers are able to control and reduce the vortex. Through this in-depth analysis, we have arrived at the ideal port design, resulting in a reduction of audible noise up to 6dB. The utilization of this state-of-the-art technology allows HS Series studio monitors to meet the demands of more strict professional production environments.
Controls and Connectivity
It features two response controls with detailed settings that allow them to adapt to the surface acoustics of rooms of varying shapes and sizes. Room Control allows you to attenuate the unnatural, exaggerated low-end that can often occur when speakers are placed next to walls, while High Trim allows for more flexible control of the high-frequency response. For inputs, HS full-range speakers can accommodate a wide range of balanced and unbalanced sources such as mixers, keyboards, and audio interfaces with XLR and TRS phone jacks. With the HS8S subwoofer, High Cut control sets the cutoff frequency of subwoofer output high-frequency attenuation from 80Hz to 120Hz, while the Phase switch adjusts the phase of the subwoofer output. The Low Cut switch and Low Cut controls enable attenuation of low frequencies for output between 80Hz and 120Hz. The HS8S subwoofer is equipped with XLR and TRS phone jack inputs and for outputs XLR for L and R and EXT SUB out.
By adding mounting points and to the HS, HS-I models are compatible with three optional bracket types, wall, ceiling, and baton, adding the flexibility needed to meet the demands of a broad range of sonic environments.
