The VXS1ML features a 1.5” full-range driver unit that, thanks to a powerful neodymium magnet and other refinements, delivers on sonic quality despite its size. It offers wide 170° horizontal and vertical dispersion so large spaces are served by a relatively small number of speakers. The complimenting VXS3S subwoofer employs Yamaha’s own SR-Bass technology and achieves natural bass reproduction in a compact enclosure.

A variety of mounting hardware allows for flexible mounting just about anywhere, including flush mounting in a ceiling or mounting on lighting rails. It supports both low- and high-impedance connections to serve the scale and purpose of a variety of systems. The sub also includes satellite connectors that allow direct connection to the VXS1ML or other full-range speakers, minimizing the number of amplifier channels required.

A neutral panel of experts chose the Yamaha VXS1ML compact speaker from others in its category for the following key reasons:

  • speaker and sub blend unobtrusively with any interior décor
  • 1.5” full-range driver unit delivers extraordinary sonic quality despite its size
  • supports both low- and high-impedance connections to serve the scale and purpose of a variety of systems
  • sub includes satellite connectors that allow direct connection to the VXS1ML or other full-range speakers
  • built-in crossover is automatically applied when the satellite connectors are used, providing smooth frequency transition from the subwoofer to speakers
  • wide horizontal and vertical dispersion so large spaces can be served by a relatively small number of speakers
