Our take on the Yamaha S115V

by Jon Paulette
Yamaha Pro

How do I find the right amp for a PA speaker?

PA systems work like any other audio system: send as much power as the speaker can handle, and you'll get the best possible sound quality at all dynamic levels. More power yields deeper, richer, and more satisfying sound -- even at low volumes. It's actually easier to damage speaker components with distortion from cranked-up low power than it is from clean high power. For PA equipment specifically, you can safely use an amplifier whose continuous power output is rated up to double the rated program power capacity of the speaker.

The latest in a long line….

Yamaha has earned its strong reputation for building quality PA speakers. Their rugged Club Series V speakers deliver powerful performance, while offering some cool features not usually available in this price range. Whether you're playing in a band, gigging as a mobile DJ, or acquiring gear for your school or house of worship, these Yamahas will give you excellent value and quality sound with any style of music.

Big power for big sounds

Yamaha's Club Series S115V speaker uses a powerful 15" woofer that provides excellent low-frequency performance, augmented by the ported design of the cabinet.  The icing on the cake is provided by a big 2" titanium tweeter housed in a 90° by 40° constant directivity horn that broadcasts the high frequencies effectively throughout a room. The high-quality drivers in this speaker handle up to 500 watts, so this Yamaha will have no problem matching up with a subwoofer in your system. Dual Neutrik Speakon® and 1/4" jacks make it easy to add more speakers when it's time to expand. The built-in pole sockets allow you to mount these speakers on stands or poles.

Tough enough to travel

The life of a loudspeaker can be rough at times, but the S115V is made for the rigors of the road. The carpeted exterior protects a yellow pine particleboard (rugged AND renewable) cabinet that's CNC-cut and hand-assembled. The subtle exterior styling fits into any venue, but these speakers are also tough enough to be shoved into a van or moved across the room. The tough, arced steel grilles protect the woofer during transport, while big, easy-to-grab steel handles and rugged steel corner protectors give you mobility and durability.

    Features

    Two-Way Passive PA Speaker: The Yamaha Concert Club series S115V passive PA speaker employs a two-way driver design with a horn-loaded 2" titanium tweeter and 15" high power woofer.

    • Horn-Loaded Tweeter: The 2" titanium compression driver is mounted to a 90°x 45° non-resonant, constant directivity horn with the goal of minimizing radiation pattern deterioration in oblique directions as more conventional horns are prone to doing. This can help to achieve a more ideal coverage area without irregularities. With the new wide dispersion constant directivity horn, sound expands in a more rectangular pattern providing 90° horizontal x 45° vertical coverage, with wide-frequency sound projected to the edges of the coverage area.
    • 15" Woofer: The high power 15" woofer provides deep bass response with low distortion for great sound.
    Note: The YSP (Yamaha Speaker Processing) switch provided on Yamaha EMX series mixers and P series amplifiers can be used to achieve optimum matching for significantly enhanced sound.

    Carpeted Bass-Reflex Cabinet: The cabinet is constructed of high quality particleboard, chosen for its high strength and elasticity, consistent void-free makeup, and light weight. Accurate CNC routing machines are used to cut every part, assuring consistency with tolerances of one ten thousandth of an inch. The cabinet is covered in a durable carpet with steel corner protectors and features a heavy-duty steel mesh grille, as well as integrated metal handles. They're designed to endure the rigors of a sound reinforcement system that will be set up and taken down night after night. The cabinet uses an efficient bass reflex design for bigger bass response.

    Dual Inputs: The Concert Club series S115V passive PA speaker features a steel jack-plate with dual Neutrik Speakon and Switchcraft 1/4" jacks for input and parallel connection. The steel jack-pack offers the highest possible strength and current capacity.

    Protection Circuitry: Protection circuit prevents excessive tweeter input due to acoustic feedback or other causes.

    Integrated Pole Socket: The S115V passive PA speaker features a 1.375" (35mm) pole socket for use with Yamaha's speaker stand (SS238C, sold separately) for easy positioning in a wide range of applications.
