Our take on the Yamaha DBR10 by Crutchfield's Bob Bihlmayer
When Yamaha decided to build their DBR Series speakers, they used technology developed for the DSR and DXR Series speakers, then added a new level of portability. The DBR10 powered PA speaker uses a Class D amplifier that supplies up to 700 watts, while the 10" woofer and 1" compression-driver tweeter turn all that power into dynamic sound. Yamaha houses the amp and speakers in a compact, lightweight portable cabinet that's the most easily transported of all their powered speakers.
At a little over 23 pounds each, you can carry an awesome PA system without even breaking a sweat.

The sound is great. The best sound I've ever heard when I used it as a guitar amp! It also looks very good when used as a stage monitor. In a small church environment I'm in the size is just perfect!

DBR Series Overview: The Yamaha DBR series of powered loudspeakers deliver powerful, high-quality sound. They use the same state-of-the-art Yamaha DSP, amplifier, and speaker technologies as the professional DSR and DXR series. These versatile speakers can be used for live performances, DJ-ing, or public address, and can be placed at front-of-house on a pole stand, on the floor on the end or side for stage monitoring, or suspended in rigged applications.
DBR10: The 2-way DBR10 is equipped with a 10" cone woofer and a 1" compression-driver tweeter, mounted in a bass-reflex type black plastic enclosure. The speaker features 90° horizontal and 60° vertical coverage. It is powered by 2-channel Class D amplifier with 700 watts (dynamic) / 325 watts (continuous) output, capable of delivering a maximum SPL of 129 dB. The drivers are separately amplified, with 500 watts (dynamic) going to the woofer and 200 watts (dynamic) to the tweeter. (Continuous power distribution is 260 watts and 65 watts, respectively.)
Crossover: The 2-way speaker features a 2.1 kHz FIR-X tuning (linear phase FIR filter) crossover.
Inputs/Outputs: The DBR10 has two inputs and one output for daisy-chaining speakers together. Input 1 features a female XLR-1/4" combo connector with a Mic-Line switch and a rotary level knob. Input 2, a line input, also features a female XLR-1/4" combo connector, plus a stereo RCA pair, and a rotary level knob. The output connector is a male XLR, with a 2-position switch. With the switch in the OUT position, the speaker outputs Channel 1 audio only. In the IN position, the speaker will output a mix of Channels 1 and 2.
DSP: The built-in Yamaha Digital Signal Processor features two controls on the back panel:
- D-Contour: The D-Contour applies the proper amount of processing
depending upon the placement of the speaker. The 3-way switch lets you
select the following:
- FOH (front-of-house) / Main: Applies a boost to both the bass and treble for a balanced full-range sound.
- Monitor: Applies a boost to the treble, but cuts the bass so you can hear yourself without being overpowered by the bass.
- Off: Turns off the D-Contour.
- High-pass Filter (HPF): Applies a high-pass filter with a selectable roll-off at 120Hz or 100Hz. You can also turn off the HPF for full-range sound.
Protection: The DBR10 has built-in protection to keep your speaker operating for years. The amplifier has a limiter that will keep the input levels from reaching an excessive level causing distortion and clipping. The amp's protection circuit monitors the internal temperature, as well as DC-fault, Output Current, and Output Voltage. When the levels get out of range, the amplifier's protection circuit will mute the speaker until the levels return to normal range.
Placement Options:The versatile DBR10 is equipped with a rugged, but portable cabinet, with a top handle for easy carrying. The speaker can be placed upright on its sturdy feet, or placed on its side and used as a 50° angled wedge for onstage floor monitoring. It has a standard 35mm pole socket on the bottom for pole mounting. On the bottom of the speaker, two threaded screw holes are provided for use with M8 x 15mm eye bolts or screws for suspending the speaker. Optional Yamaha speaker brackets are also available for rigged applications.
