Benefits of Yamaha VXS3S 3.5" Dual SR-Bass™ Subwoofer:
Wide Array of Models to Cater to All Low-frequency Needs
Luxurious bass response can enhance musical presence and realism manifold. Yamaha offers the VXS3S for smoothly extended low-end power, and the VXS10S and VXS10ST for applications that require maximum bass impact. Choose the model that is best suited according to the size of the system and the full-range speakers used.
High-performance Full-range Driver
A number of methods are used to enhance low-frequency response in speaker enclosures. Original Yamaha SR-Bass™ technology employed in the VXS3S suspends a four-sided diaphragm on only one of its sides, using the resonance of the diaphragm to enhance the system’s low-frequency output. It doesn’t come with any constraints on the shape and materials used for the diaphragm, making SR-Bass™ technology applicable to a wide range of speaker designs, including compact models. In bass reflex designs, a tuned port in the enclosure boosts low frequencies releasing from the rear of the speaker unit. The VXS10S adopts this method, specializing in more powerful low-frequency reproduction. One constraint with this approach is that as the enclosure becomes smaller or thinner, the size of the port must be reduced accordingly, resulting in increased resistance and correspondingly reduced bass enhancement. Bass reflex designs are not always the best fit for compact enclosures.
Passive radiator designs avoid the use of a port, giving a boost to bass response with a tuned passive “drone cone.” The passive radiator method is apt for compact enclosures, but the passive cone tends to be heavy, requiring some form of the firm and durable suspension that can adversely impact efficiency. The directivity of the passive radiator also casts limitations on where and how the system can be installed. Yamaha offers 2 choices. That is compact VXS3S and powerful VXS10S. You can select the best model for your application.
Satellite Connectors Optimize Balance
The VXS3S and VXS10S have satellite connectors on the rear panel, cutting down the number of amplifier channels required to get a system operational. And since the VXS3S and VXS10S support high-impedance connections, it is possible to connect low-impedance satellites while the subwoofer is connected to a high-impedance system, for example. A built-in high-pass filter is auto-applied to the satellite speakers, rendering exceptionally smooth, natural frequency crossover from the subwoofer to satellites.
Flexible Installation Options
In addition to the supplied wall-mounting hardware, a wide array of optional hardware allows VXS series “S” models to be mounted, while factoring in preferences and convenience. The VXS10S can be placed on the floor or mounted on a wall or ceiling, while the VXS3S additionally allows flush ceiling mounting.
